Winter Cleaning...

So I have been trying to figure out why I have almost 800 GB of hard drive space eaten up (It is ridiculous) Anyway, lots of duplicate files. But while I was cleaning I came across some backgrounds I did for my old job. I remember, this was my first one I had to do. I had fun with it, on a few pages of animation bond taped together. Ha! Enjoy...


I am working on some freelance character animation and I was unhappy with the way it was going. So I scrapped the keys that took me hours to do and just drew out some new more gestural ones. Anyway, this is one I really liked. I loosened up and finally had some fun with it.

When I get a drawing like this it gets me excited to work through an animation.

(by the way, I left onion skin on so that is what you see in the bg)

I was sketching some ideas out in my Moleskine this evening and I stumbled back on idea I had a while ago for a simple short about a do-gooder pigeon. I scanned the sketches and cleaned them up a bit in Sketchbook. I got the idea when I heard that the US Coast Guard actually uses pigeons to locate people lost at sea. Amazing what these birds can do, when you see them in the city you just think of them as a nuisance.

Since the loss of Joe Camel, the smoking community at large needed a new icon. I am just trying to fill that void. I threw this together real quick in flash (as you can tell)

It's the truth, it's actual...

Did this in sketchbook for a family trip to Disneyworld. I know it is corny but I had fun doing it.

A Look Back...

I took a look back at some of the concept art that we drew while developing the characters for Disney's Little Einsteins and I found one of the character sketches I drew that was to become June. It was a printout, and the file is long gone, so I redrew it quickly to post up here. Anyway, some people have their own theories about June and I thought that this would be an interesting sketch to show. If she tested well with the kiddies this could have been the June we all know and love today.

A Matter of Practicality...

So some of my colleagues and I veered onto the topic of measuring things not with rulers but with pineapples. Now, the real point of contention was whether we should remove the tops to measure or not. I made this little comic to illustrate why you should always remove the tops of your pineapples before using them to measure anything.

Jello-Bot Character Sketches

Just some doodles of a character I came up with today. I would like to make some color treatments and try animating a sample of how I'd like this character to move. He is supposed to have a robot bottom and kind of a Jello mold top half to him... Hopefully more to come!

Here is a sketch I did for another Blog I contribute to. I did this in Sketchbook Pro. Pretty happy with it overall, tried to work in some different design elements. Anyway, enjoy!

Big Baah, Mountain Man!

Here is a doodle I did a few weeks ago. Enjoy!

Arriverderci Venice!

Here is a pic of the piece I made for the Skate Deck show this coming Monday. I was trying to have a kid being pulled home from a Carnivale festival in Venice. The buildings are in St. Mark's Square in Venice, Italy. I Spraypainted the blue and the magenta behind the confetti and the rest I painted by hand with Cel Vinyl.

More Board Sketches

I forgot how much nicer it is to sketch around on paper than on a cintiq. Especially when it comes to conceptual work. I still am not so comfortable in the computer that I can work my ideas out there. Here are a few more parts to my skate deck I am trying to do.

I am attempting to make a piece for an art show featuring Skateboard Decks painted by various artists to the theme of Carnival. I don't want to show my whole idea just yet, but here is a small piece of it (in a very early rough idea phase). I will keep updating my progress. I hope to start painting this weekend (hopefully)

Nano Kong

I was messing around the other day and drew this little sketch. I know I haven't posted in an extremely long time, but I promise that more posts are on the way. In the meantime enjoy "Nano Kong."
