Homeless...


 Inspired by real people I’v seen on the street, trying to survive another day. 
Which reminds me of lyrics from a Johnny Cash song that I’ve recently discovered, “Man In Black”…….
“I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin’ in the hopeless, hungry side of town…”

Electric Holiday!

I worked with Disney Character Artist, John T. Quinn on the Electric Holiday Project. The two designs on the far left are super close to my originals. This was a dream job to work on because I literally was turning caricatures into animation designs. :D

Animating!








I'm animating a short scene. The character is the Easter Bunny, that's all I'll say. It's for my own pure enjoyment, and cause I've missed animating so much. I've been getting in design more, but I feel that I can't stop there, I have to see the character come to life!

The first design: he's just a grumpy, wine-drinking Easter Bunny who just wants to chill and keep to himself. The line is: "Where are my eggs!?"  Voiced by my friend Jared Morr(thanks Jared!) thanks also to his brother James for recording.

I attached the x-sheet...exploring possible mouth shapes.

The thumbnails are the basic scene structure and acting. He does a little business before leading up to the dialogue.

I also started playing around with his facial design more, trying to figure out his mouth shapes, and how his whole face works in general. I made a quick animated gif to test it out.

More to come!

My Wine Bottle is on the Racks :)


About a year ago I designed a wine label for a winery, Flying Goat Cellars,  in my hometown. This is the first time I've seen the bottle alongside other wines. :D Thanks to Jonathan Herron for the pics! :)  This was taken at Sissy's Uptown Cafe in Lompoc, Ca.

My Design.
The Bottle.

  
Here's the bottle alongside the other wines on the rack :)

Samsung Digital Caricatures

Last night I drew digital caricatures on the Samsung Galaxy note phone for a promotion they were having at the rooftop of the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood. The view was amazing. Here's everyone I drew last night :)
