Happy Holidays from the Foster House!

Merry Christmas everyone!  Here is our holiday card for this year- I forgot to make it more Christmassy, but the fact I got it done in time this year is enough for me to #dropmike.

Jo's Crapbook: Episode 01 - Pinup Mermaid

Sometimes when I’m feeling overwhelmed by work, I need to get “a thing” done in order to feel productive.  I’ve been wanting to try my hand doing little process videos, so here is my first Crapbook episode where I just fail and fail and fail until I “meh” my way to something I kinda like.  Next one will bebetter!  Or not! The suspense!

Almost Broke!

Last couple of weeks were a perfect storm of overlapping jobs, sick husband, and house and baby duty.  I’ve been catching up on my rest the past few days, but last week I almost broke!  Guys, you guys- it is so important to drink water, you guys.  Also, in case of emergency, there are places called "Hydration Stations" that can save your dehydrated butts. Just sayin'!

Baby Vs. Pun'kin



Channel Frederator had a collaboration for Halloween that I had an idea for.  I was prepared to just shrug it off because (all together now, Class) I have no time anymore and just about every idea I have these days just goes in my "to do... someday" pile.  But then I thought I'd experiment and see how far I could get in just the day or so I had before the deadline, just for the heck of it!  This is really more of how I do animatics than animation, and I did end up having to discard a lot of my original ideas, but I am proud that I've got something done at last, even if it is craptasically rough.

Bride of Frankenstein

#BRIDEOFFRANKENSTEIN for @Sketch_Dailies and #inktober.  I seem to do one of these every year about this time.

Just Draw Better

I've been getting frustrated with my drawings lately (i.e. the past year or so...)  This runs through my head a lot.

Penny Serenade at Steve's Live Music!

 I'm so excited we're playing this awesome venue I did some new art.

Secret Squirrel


Started a Sketch Dailies topic that kinda went "meh" on me.

Max as NeoGotham Batgirl

Started this sketch a few weeks ago when SketchDailies had BatmanBeyond as a topic.  I alway loved Max and thought she was a great addition to Batman lore, and I wonder what they would have done with the character if the show had lasted longer.

Epcot Food & Wine Festival Spots: "Spicy Tears" and "Got Fuegoed"



Here are the spots that consumed my being this past July.  It was such a thrill to work under Eric Goldberg's supervision!  I really wish time permitted these to be done traditionally, but it was still so satisfying to work on these.  I hope I get to do more stuff like this in the future!

Thank you Eric Cerda​ for recommending me for the team!  And thank you Nate Foster for doing such a slick job in compositing, and also for doing extra Daddy-ing for Talia when I needed a few more hours to get things done.
