11 Second Club Entry

I've been working on an entry for the 11 Second Club this month...its was a bit of a fustercluck.  I had a really hard time because I didn't do proper planning.  I kinda skipped the all important thumnailing phase...oh, and the key pose phase as well.  I was just lazy, and it ended up that I kepting working myself into circles and I didn't even finish (thats why it unravels at the end).  Funny how when you're lazy you end up working twice as hard for half the quality.   All that aside, I'm proud I stuck to it and at least got it to the end of the sound clip.  Next months entry will be better- I'll be damned if I don't do thumbnails.  Here it is!

"Laughing Orangutans" Coming in 2009

Over the summer, I got an exciting commission to produce eight :30s shorts for the upcoming revival of Sesame Workshop's "Electric Company". I didn't have much time, and there were a lot of setbacks, but I got the job done and of that I'm proud. Now that "Electric Company" is close to premiering in January of 2009 (next month!) I feel like I ought to make this announcement. So check your local listings! While its not anything near stellar animation, its my first credit on a TV show so I'm pleased.

(By the by, this image I have posted here was early design when the "Laughing Orangutans" were still "Laughing Gorillas." The final designs look absolutely nothing like this, so I figured it was safe to post.)

Wedding Thanks

Here's the drawing I used for some of my wedding gift thank-you notes. It was a last minute thing (I ran out of store-bought cards) but it got the job done.

I've been trying to plan a little short cartoon about a cat ever since Juxtaposer. Here are some designs I'm toying with.

Daily Crapbook

I was doodling while playing "The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes" in the background. Its a entertaining film with wonderful actors that offers some exploration into the character of the famous detective. Naturally, the film inspired me to doodle a rollerskating waitress.

Bad Haircut

Sometimes drawing takes the edge off reality...
