Among Waves

Available now, a new album from Orca Life, featuring artwork by me:

In addition to the album artwork, I also filmed and directed a music video for a track off the album, "Fall In":

Both the album artwork and video are made from a series of video experiments I shot, applied over photographs/video shot by Chris Roberts (Orca Life himself) and edited together. Since Photoshop and After Effects have the same layer mode options, I tried to treat the video exactly as I did the artwork, which for an experiment I think turned out pretty well.

Also featured on the J-Card interior is the "Jesse" logo that I created for Orca Life.

Watch the video, listen to and buy the album. Enjoy.

More Developements

I recently advanced from animator on The Lucas Bros. Moving Co. to storyboard artist. So, that's totally a thing I hopefully I can talk more about in the future...

Also I made album art and a music video that should be out in a few weeks, but again... secret....

Also i'm on Ello now for whatever reason...

Otherwise, have some art I haven't posted here yet:

Recent Developments

Hey there, I don't update this as often as I'd like but here's what I've been up to:

Most recently I created a new identity for Chris Roberts' music pseudonym, Orca Life:

I drew this in pencil first, inked it with a brush pen, and then edited it in Photoshop. The stages can be seen on my Tumblr.

Before that, I laid out the artwork for Rachel Thomasin's new album out on Otherworldly Mystics. Rachel provided the base artwork herself, but I was responsible for the layout and copy for the cover/interior as well as the labels on the tapes and the color choices.

And lastly, some GIFs from a series I'm calling Animals In Shirts; if I'm lucky they'll have me reboot Shirt Tales...


I have more projects in the works but that's all there is to show for now.

I Was Interviewed

I was asked by an author living in Ghana, Comfort Arthur, to do an interview about my work and my influences, it's pretty lengthy but feel free to take a look:

And here is the self-portrait I did for the interview:

Sometimes I have a beard, sometimes I don't. I figured I'd just make both...

This isn't my first interview, I was also recently interviewed for the Oxford Film Festival, but those questions mostly pertain to Transmission.

Tumblr Radar

Much to my shock, no pun intended, I woke up to find out my latest frog GIF got on the Tumblr Radar. And then my follower amount doubled in half a day!

Feels weird, man...
