self portrait

this is my final animation for my fall semester. I have never worked so hard on anything in my entire life. seriously. it took about a month to do and in the last couple of weeks before it was due i didn't sleep too much. but i am psyched i got my first full animation finished and am still alive. it was a lot of fun. next semester we're adding sound to these too so i'm looking forward to that. until then i finally have some me time over the christmas break and can do whatever the hell i want! booyah!

in my designing the frame class we had to make 5 frames depicting a pivotal scene in the fairy tale snow drop. i never realized how different that is from the disney snow white but its really different. this is my take on it and i decided to do the scene when the hunter is ordered to go out and kill her but can't do it. we had to blend photographs with our drawings in photoshop. this took me forever considering i am not a photoshop guru and didnt know many shortcuts so i took the long way around in doing most of this. fun though

a tell tale heart

The tell tale heart as interpreted by me for a class assignment in designing the frame. this was a big step forward for me in the digital art realm and i'm happy to report that i partially know what i am doing now. its only improvement from here i'm hoping!

Jammin Kit Kat

So I've been trying to get used to and use Photoshop on my drawings. I really like how it looks but teaching yourself is a bitch. I'm sure i took everything that should be simple and made it oh so complicated. This took me like 3 hours. I need a Photoshop teacher

sinclair cover

so lately all i've been able to work on is the illustrations for the book i'm illustrating, which isn't a bad thing but it does consume every ounce of time i have. this would be the cover. mostly finished i would say

Sinclair le teddy bear

A character i've been working on for a children's book I'm illustrating. This is my first job illustrating anything ever and it has been pretty fun, pretty stressful, and pretty amazing....and i've only finished the cover so far. I should have the whole thing illustrated by the end of the summer. That is my goal anyway.

Your Friendly Neighborhood Icecream Man

It is officially summer now and when I was a kid I always looked forward to the sweet melody of "Pop Goes the Weasel", which was the delicious sound of the nearby icecream truck. But now that I look back on it and think about it, I always remember the icecream man being absolutely terrifying. He was always smoking and looked like someone who had just escaped from prison. And yes, the icecream man that came around my neighborhood did actually have tatooed tally marks on his arm. I always wondered what they meant but the more I think about it, I'm really much more comfortable not knowing.

Character Sketches

just messing around with some character sketches. For some reason I got on a bird kick and just tryed to draw some of the weirdest types i could think of..... I suppose platypuses aren't birds....but I'm sure you understand where I'm coming from. Anywho here are some humming bird and platypus sketches. Lata

first post

just thought i'd kick off my little blogging business by posting one of my more recent explorations in comics. I just finished taking a comic class where we explored color and the narrative and this is one of the "free" assignments we did for extra credit. My teacher was Nathan Fox, who is an incredible comic artist who just did some illustrations in DMZ 17 and 18. Check it out
