Some problems with it but thats what learning is all about. Hope you guys dig it. Take care and Merry Christmas to all and Happy Holidays! See you in the new year. 09 baby!!!

These are storyboards for a music video I did for my girlfriend Brandi. It was for a class project and the story revolves around a pregnant teen who goes through different situations and finally seeks to find help through the church. The story was a cool idea but there was a little confusion with some of the details which is why there are continuity problems. You live and you learn I guess. It was a cool exercise and I hope to work on more like this sometime in the future. I was a little worried at first, but she got an A on the project and her teacher loved it. Funny how things work sometimes in life. Im glad I could help her on it and I hope she knows how much I appreciate her for giving me the opportunity. Maybe I should tell her then? Lol Gotta go. Hope you all had a good weekend.

Sorry I havent posted more of my story in a while. Still trying to get settled in the new place. These are some ideas and sketches for the 3 main pirate crew and the other soldiers for ship; some peter pan and hook, and tic toc the crocodile. I cant believe how old these are. The designs have really come a long way since these were put together. Hope you enjoy! More on the way.

Boar's Head

Things started to pick up on my end again. Just a little sketch inbetween games at work. No kind of significance really, just a sketch to loosen up a bit.

SciFiDude aka i need to come up with better names

Something I was playing with after work. I found some new brushes for photoshop that Ive been messing around with. Getting some really cool effects and it's freeing up my hand a lot with the different textures you can get. I love doing faces sometimes. So iconic like a poster for a movie or something. You really connect more with the character that way. The next one I'm going to do a full body just to bring it all together. Done moving now but now I have to get my car towed! Crazy. Hope you guys have a good weekend.

Hook again

Started taking another direction with Hook this go around. Had to make the character more sympathetic. Feels like so long ago when I did these designs. Lol. Just had to move so things got kind of messed up over on my end and my computer caught a bad virus so I havent been able to back up everything yet. Hope you guys have a good one. Enjoy.


ps check out the new banner!

More Hook Designs

This is when I started playing more with the idea of making Hook a samurai. Appreciate the suggestion Vignali. Really early exploration of samurai combinations. Enjoy

Hook designs

Some early sketches of Hook. These babies are old old. I took a different direction with him in the end making the entire story China-esque. Enjoy.



more mermaid sketches

The Pan Man

Hey guys Ive been in the lab working my behind off on this new stuff. I eventually want to turn it into something more, but for right now just getting a feel for the characters right now. Im redoing the Peter Pan story in China and changing some stuff around with the story. So far its been a crazy experience. Ive been doing a lot of sketching lately and kept redesigning everything to make it different from anything else. I will probably post a few more things from the story this work and after that post once a week. Ill put some more little doodles inbetween then to fill it up more. Trying to add a little more variety to the blog a little. Hope everyone digs it. This is stuff from early February, so its pretty old. Enjoy.


Comic Con 2008

Man just flew back from comic con and boy are my arms tired! Lol. Lame joke I know. I had a really fun time. Got to see a lot of artists, met new friends, and got to take pics with Pikachu! I tried to meet as many people as I could, but there was just so much to do and see that I couldn't get to everything in time. I really enjoyed it and can't wait to go next year. Hope everyone else who went had a good time as well. Anyways bloggers, have a good one and I'll post some stuff from my new project I'm working on. Check it out soon. Take care.

Yoda Soda

Man I've so busy with all this stuff lately. Getting ready for San Diego, work has been picking up a lot lately, and a slew of projects on the side I'm slowing getting together. In the middle of all this I did a little drawing of Yoda last night while I was going through my old animation reel from school. I really liked the idea of using Yoda, but the concept didn't quite come together as well as I hoped. So to make it up to myself I redrew one of the keys I had made but with a lot more rendering. Its funny how you can look back at your old work and really see the progress you've made in such a small amount of time. Hope you guys enjoy. I'll try to post a little more in the next few weeks. Happy ID4!

Future Girl

This is a sketch I did awhile back for a story idea I had. I admit, this character is loosely based on a character from El Grande. I liked the idea so much that I randomly painted her one day. Then I decided to use her for one of my portfolio pieces as an homage to them. If you havent already checked out the their site, then same on you! Hope you enjoy

Ollie Johnston

Hey guys. Man I've been so busy lately. Got my portfolio I'm working on, and things have been real busy at work lately. Anyway, I just wanted to take the time out and comment on the recent passing of Ollie Johnston. The last of the "9 Old Men". A true inovator for his time and contributed to the foundation of animation that we aspire by today. I am very proud to be apart of his legacy and I hope that I can put my mark in a field where many have tried to go above and beyond just normal film making. Words can't express the what Ollie and his peers have accomplished, but I hope that we all can take pride and encouragement in their following. Take care.

A Dream

Hey guys. Its Friday and I'm waiting for traffic to die down at work. If you didn't know, today is the 40th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr's death. I think we as Americans take for granted what he has accomplished and the movement he stood for. I was listening to the radio this morning and they played a clip from the one of his speeches. Man, what a moving piece it was and made me think a lot about what it must have been like back then. It moved me so much that I wanted to do a little piece to commemorate it. It took me a lot longer than I planned but I'm glad I did it. Enjoy and I hope you all have a good weekend. Take care!

Peace and Love,

Man its been a long month! Birthday coming up, work was crazy, and been working on my new portfolio. Been trying to keep up with the madness and in the process, made this dragon creature.
