Been doing some freelance work lately, so here's a shot of a project I'm currently working on.

Clicky clicky to get a better look!

Next Five #1 - Birds

New game I learned about--basically you grab a picture off of the internet and tell what happens next using five frames.

Character Sketches

Toying around with the idea of getting together a team to work on an animated film, so here's a bit of pre-production: some character sketches!

Rainy Day 2.0

Had a great suggestion from a friend, so I went back and edited the painting a bit. This one should read a bit better.

Rainy Day

It's actually quite a lovely day here in SF, but whatever.

Froggy Went A-Courtin'

This is for my grandmother. She's always been fond of poems and rhymes and has been singing this one for as long as I can remember. The first verse goes:

"Froggy went a-courtin', and he did ride, uh-hum, uh-hum.
  Froggy went a-courtin', and he did ride, uh-hum, uh-hum.
Froggy went a-courtin' and he did ride,
With a sword and a pistol by his side, uh-hum, uh-hum." 

Love ya, Gran!

"Sand Castle"

This is a story about a boy who defends his sand castle from the rising tide.

When I started this, it was only supposed to be 10 frames or so, but when I got started more ideas just kept coming. By the end of it, the story was 60 frames!

This was an interesting project because I was trying to focus on speed and keeping loose with all of my drawings. I don't have a Cintiq anymore so these were drawn on a tiny Wacom Bamboo Tablet. It's a cute little guy, but it definitely makes it more difficult to keep your drawing nice and loose. C'est la vie!

Name That Movie 3!

Graphic Designz

It's been a while since I've done some logo work, so when my brother and sister-in-law asked me to design the logo for their new baby clothing store, I jumped at the chance.

Here's the final product:

...but I have to confess, my favorite is still my first design:

Either way, they're happy, so I'm happy :)

3D Layout - Dinner scene from "Jaws"

Just finished working on this first pass for a scene from "Jaws." I really love this scene, particularly because it isn't what you think of first when you think of "Jaws."

Mickey Mouse Fantasia

So I went to the Walt Disney Family Museum here in San Francisco yesterday, and it was just fantastic! So fantastic that I felt compelled to paint something after seeing the wonderful exhibits.

I love Mary Blair's work, and I thought it might be fun to try it out myself.

Take a look!
