2009 DEMO REEL --> To the Right

Hey Hey, I just finished slapping together a short little demo reel from this years work. It's pretty short, but in talks with my good friend Ian Jones Quartey, he told me something valuable. He said it's better to show 10 seconds of good material then to have a 2 and a half minute long demo full of nonsense and throwaway material. Very very true, and unfortunately I am very very guilty of that on my last demo. It was made to only fit the song I chose (red flag), and full of stuff that probably just didn't need to be shown, or the individual segments just dragged out for to long. So, my last demo reel i'll just chalk up to being a young excited animator, desperately wanting people to like my stuff. I still hope people like my stuff, I just hope i've grown out of the desperate part. This one hopefully just gets the point across that i can animate, and hopefully well enough that you'll hire me one day. So there you have it...oh wait no you don't, because your gonna have to go to my vimeo page to see it. I've created a new link to my vimeo, under links on the right side, it's the first one. I don't know, I just feel awkward about showing animated characters that are heavily trademarked on my blog. It's just to show my work, nothing else, so If you'd like to see it, the link is over there. Have a great one.

Hello all, it is late on this saturday night, and Melissa and I have been up painting the Logo for The Adventures of manCHILD. I hope you all enjoy what we both worked very hard on.

T-Shirt Design

You know i'm sick and tired of these stupid T Shirt's I see people wearing...Virigna's for Lovers, New Jersey only the strong survive, you know what, go fuck yourself asshole if your wearing one of those, i've got no use for ya. In the words of Karl Pilkington " 'm fed up". So, even tho this goes against my better judgement because I hate Ironic T Shirts, I decided I'm gonna make this shirt. Email me if you want it.

Concept BG for manCHILD

Here's one of the shot's I envisioned in my head as I was coming up with the first installment of manCHILD. It's basically the same style as the Charter Spots, but I just had to get the idea down. Now that I got it, I wanna start messing with it. Thought it came old cool tho.


Okay, so we knew about this a while ago, but me and Mike just found out they have a music video up on Leroy Smith's Website. This is rediculously awesome. Please please pleaseeee if your reading this, and you haven't gone to this site yet, please go...its intense.

manCHILD Facial Expressions

So I talked to my good friend, Mr. Danny Hynes this morning... a character designer for The Venture Bros. on Cartoon Network, and I asked him for some of his character design advice in dealing with manCHILD. He thought it was cool, but if he had any suggestions just to pull the facial features together a little more. So this morning I did that, and just drew some faces I thought would show a range of expression. I've actually broken one of my rules here (manCHILD shall never frown), but for these purposes I think its fine. Hope they look cool...manCHILD.

Layin' Low

I also forgot to get this one up there. I took it a while ago, I just thought she looked so funny. She looks like a pile of laundry or something.

Ready, Steady, Meow.

Having a bit of a frustrating night right now...I hate taking tests. I over think things, and always do poor. So as you can see, I was procrastinating.
