Abby's Dad

Here's a first stab at the design for Abby's dad, Tim. Tim is a down on his luck writer from NYC. Upon being an utter and complete failure at jumpstarting his creative writing career, Tim is forced to move him and his daughter back to his hometown of Anytown, USA. Not having too much to offer a small community, Tim finds work with the local paper writing beat stories. Being forced to do ride alongs with a local cop, Tim is constantly getting himself into situations he's completely unprepared for. But nothing compares to his ultimate challenge, when he gets home and attempts to raise a teenage girl. I wanna design his cop buddy next. The cop is going to also be down and out. I assume he's the shame of the department, which is way he gets paired with the writer from the paper. They're gonna be a great duo.

An Abinormal Year

So I guess it goes without saying that I have not posted on this blog in a long time. Had a very active year and half since last... Titmouse Inc has kept me very busy with productions like TURBO F.A.S.T., China IL., and most recently I've been lucky enough to get to Animation Direct on The Venture Bros. Season 6. Been a very productive and fruitful year and a half to say the least. Most importantly I got married to the love of my life Melissa! We've been married 7 months, and really I couldn't be more happy. I'd probably have to give my wife the credit for inspiring me to push myself. I have a tendency to be complacent and settle with my personal work, but this year was a little different. Recently I embarked on making a personal film which primiered at the Midsummer Night Toons Festival here in NYC. The event went great and for anyone who wasn't able to see it there, I'd like to share about it here with you! The Short is called "Abinormal!" and if you give it a watch I think it'll explain itself. "Abinormal!" is an idea i've been sitting on for a while now. First and foremost, I used to be terrified of "The Exorcist". So I think at the most basic level this has been some sort of cathartic experience for me. Secondly tho I always thought about it and wondered... what if Linda Blair's character never got cured of her "condition"? What if she had to just brush off that vomit, and pick herself up? Go to school, hang with friends, could she lead any type of normal life? What would that look like? I thought it was funny lol. So I decided to stop dreaming about it, and just make it. Now, before I get a little too ahead of myself, I did NOT make this thing alone. I was very fortunate and had the help of some extremely talented people throughout animation in NYC. Tom Soulen was there from beginning to end with me. From the get go he always believed in the idea, and since was responsible for all the backgrounds throughout the piece. Animation wise, along with myself, the crew I was able to gather was stellar. Starting with my two best bud's Yuri Fain and Danny Hynes. Both without question were eager to jump in and lend a hand, and the animation they cranked out was unbelievable. Aaron Brewer jumped in and just nailed the style and the sensibility (not to mention lending his voice for the character of Harrison, which to me he completely killed it!). Mike Carlo whom has been directing animation here at Titmouse East was able to lend a hand and delivered the, if not, most memorable shot in the film. Tim Prendergast was able to help out and produced some FX animation (for which theres a screen grab below). Just top notch work, really from every single person who helped, down the line I couldn't have been more lucky. I'm really happy with the way it turned out, I constantly feel like I'm never really living up to my potential, and for the first time I feel like I've shown the world what I'm capable of. Nothings perfect, and it's all a learning process... but If your reading this and watching I hope you enjoy!

Wow, haven't posted here in forever. Just for clarification, i'm not dead... I'm alive! I've been a citizen of Motorcity for the past year and a half. I cut together a little demo reel to showcase some of the best shots. There's way more stuff, maybe i'll do a part two... or keeping in with the Back to the Future intro, maybe a part 3? Anyways, hope you enjoy watching as much as I enjoy doin'! Be sure to catch Motorcity on Disney XD! All artwork property of Titmouse Inc.

Abigail's Growin'

Just took these pictures today. I take a lot of photos of her with my iPhone but not nearly enough with my camera. Caught some decent shots. The B & W of her smiling is so awesome, Im just pissed I couldn't get it fast enough. Although out of focus I still like it. She's getting bigger!

The Many Misadventures of a Pink Dude

The Hobbit

Here's the gang, all together! I took the liberty of filling in their names, cause it is kinda difficult to remember. Maybe by the time the movie comes out I'll have it right. My new desktop is awesome!

Danny Hynes pushed me to try to put up a sketch no matter how awesome or (more likely) poor a day. Here's my sketch, cause I was listening to an old Howard Stern.

Haven't posted in a while, wanted to put up a picture or two of the new "other woman" in my life. Meet Abigail! 8 weeks old, nutty as all hell, and a great addition to the family. She's still too young to go outside or anything, but once she can she'll be tearing it up as good as the rest of em. More pics soon to come, if she'll stand still!

Hipstamatic Weekend

Had to help my sister move out of college upstate this weekend. We visited the barn where she's boarding her horse before we left, figured it was a good opportunity to pull out the hipstamatic. I still think this horse hates me.

Warden Heads

Here's just a collection of sketch head's I did the other day. The top row is more faithful to the design of the Warden... whereas the bottom row is me getting carried away with myself. I can't help it, drawing the warden is fun.

For My Girlfriend

My girlfriend was nice enough to stay up with me to watch the premiere of Superjail season 2, but she missed my name in the credits. Here ya go bud. (Too Bad About The Spelling)

Since other people aren't being subtle about the video's now surfacing online, I figured i'd attach the link I found for this video and put it up. I wont say who animated this entire sequence, but hopefully it looks cool. If anyone still actually ever visits this blog, than you had better mark your calendars...SUPERJAIL! Season 2 Premiere airs April 3rd (Sunday) at midnight on Adult Swim. Watch!

I think this is the best arrangement of numbers. 328 is my favorite. Here's a nice song.

This looks like a very interesting Documentary not only for its geographic appeal (there's something creepier about the fact that it's my town, let alone a spot I used to frequent) but also the blurred lines between urban legends and true horror...I really gotta OnDemand this. I suggest you do too. Also supporting Staten Island filmmakers is never a bad thing to do!

Too Much Sense

I love Bill Murray, it's just funny tho to watch this video and see how something that seems so spur of the moment is actually very well planned out. Kinda cool. Also R2D2 is a geat little guy.

Kingsville, TX

Just flew out to Kingsville, Texas last week to visit my brother out in flight school. I have to say, I loved Texas. Now I just gotta figure out where the animation studios are out there and I think I'm set. It was a really great time, and I just wanna thank my brother Jimbo and all his friends out there for showing me that great time. Here are some pics from the trip, enjoy.
