Happy New Year!

Hey all! Happy New Year! I hope 2010 brings everyone great things! :D

2009 was a good year, considering. It had its ups and downs but overall it was good! Finished Ringling, came to LA, got some work in film, got my facebook account hacked this morning..All fun stuff! ;) I just hope 2010 will be much better! :D

I thought I would post a work in progress of a little exercise I've been working on my free time. It is some dialogue from Kill Bill, and I am using Greg Peltz's KnockOut Model (Watch his film here!) Thanks a lot for letting me use her, Greg! It is still a work in progress, but I did promise some kind of update before the year was over! ;)

Alvin and The Chipmunks 2 is in theaters now! It is pretty darn cool seeing kids laugh at the movie and people clap at the end. :) All that hard work was worth it!

Well, Happy New Year! Go celebrate, be safe, and be with your loved ones! See you in 2010!

Braainnnsssssss...

Wow, it has been a while! You six people following me must have been so worried! ;)


Hello!

I apologize for the lack of updates. Life after Ringling has been quite interesting! After graduation in May, I moved to Los Angeles and was picked up by Rhythm and Hues to work on Alvin & The Chipmunks 2. It was a very fun project and I can't wait for it to be on theaters! Be sure to see it! (hooray for shameless plugs!)

After that I went to Sony Pictures Imageworks to work on Cats & Dogs 2, which I finished working on this month. And now I am taking some time off to work on me reel and find my next new adventure/movie/job. And I can't wait... It's getting boring at home!

I'm close to finishing a new lil' animation exercise to keep me from getting rusty and I shall promptly post it, followed by a new demo reel, I hope!

So to all a Happy Holiday! :) I hope everyone has a great time and that 2010 will be a great year for animation, and life in

The calm -after- the storm!


So, finally, I am a BFA!

More importantly, I finally got a weeks worth of good sleep! :)

Yes, I have graduated from Ringling College along with my wonderful classmates. It was a long an enjoyable four years and I am proud to have met so many awesome artists and just great and fun people to be around with. I will miss them terribly! :<

And now I join the many artists hunting for the ever elusive job-asaurus. I hope to find a good one that will offer shelter and food for me and my wifey. Also, good job-asaurus teeth can be used for spearheads and the like!

I did get something pretty neat for graduation! A Nikon D-60! Now I can take super cool pictures!

Like this!



I should start a Flickr account now.

Other than that this is the end of my week off...and then it's back to animation! I have not posted it yet but I am doing a small lipsync test with Greg Peltz's awesome model, The Knockout. I shall post it soonish when I finish it!

Although it may have to wait... My mouse's left click is broken and it is a pain to work with it. Thankfully logitech is sending me a new one.

And that was it! A long needed update with no art at all! So I better get workin'! And to all my classmates: keep on rockin'!

2D Water!

x-posted at www.catsmeow-themovie.com

For my short I required water effects... I decided to draw the water traditionally and then color and comp it onto my shot using Photoshop and Shake. It's been a learning experience and I owe a lot of it to Mr Gary Schumer, who has been my 2D Water FX mentor here at Ringling! Here is the cleaned up animation, all on 1's.

It was really fun to make it... And I learned a lot thanks to Gary. It felt great to get on the good old animation desk and flip some pages once more...

I'm baaaack!

Did I forget I had a blog???

Apparently! ;)

I've been quite busy working on my short film during my senior year of Ringling. I do have tons of stuff to post related to that, but I want to edit it and make sure I am not giving any big spoilers... So for now, just a small promotional image of sorts!



It has been a blast, and I have 30 more days to finish and go render it... so it's back to work for me!
