One Hundredth Post

Apparently it's 100th post time. I wish I could've done something more special, but I've been putting it off and I'm on the road so a quick pencil sketch will do to celebrate. This keeps it kind of O.G. anyways.

So throughout some time, followed by about 99 blog posts and 11,270 visits - here we are. I would've considered myself a mediocre artist at best a couple of years ago when I started this thing, but I feel like I'm at least a bit more serviceable now.

It's funny to think that when I came out of school, I had to eliminate any graffiti related artwork from my portfolio - I was literally losing job opportunities because of it. It's great knowing now that I'm at a stage in my career where I can be more comfortable and choose my own clients. It takes time, but I think anyone can earn the right to make a living without conforming to someone else's narrow minded perspectives...

Ironically last fall I was even hired as a graffiti artist to work on the set of a Reebok commercial.

I want to thank anyone who has stopped by - as well as all the great people I have been fortunate enough to meet along the way. I greatly appreciate all of the interest and support!

Love Letter Animation

This is a 2D animation I had to turn around in a couple of days, thrown together using Photoshop and After Effects. You can see the storyboard I put together for it in my previous post as well.

Animation Storyboard

A board for a new animation I just produced. I didn't feel like breaking it into sheets so it's super-vert.

Sled Character Rehash

After my original sled designs we ended up going with a different style, a little less toony. This sheet gives an idea of the overall transformation I put them through.
