Sometimes I don't even know where I come up with this stuff.

50th POST!

Now that I'm concentrating on personal projects, I've been plugging away on the Philippe and Pierre animations. I'm finalizing the thumbnails and working on the overall design.

Here are a couple of the background styles I'm playing with.

So long Wordgirl, it's been fun!

For the last year-and-a-half, I've been working at the fine animation studio, Soup 2 Nuts. During the last six-plus months, I've been working as a thumbnail artist on the great new show, The Colossal Adventures of Wordgirl. During this time, I've learned a ton about production, story, animation, and design.

However, I've decided to hang up the old saddle/wacom pen and head off into the sunset. I am taking a sabbatical hoping to work on my writing and artwork. I want to push my work into children's animation and publishing, and I found that after an 8-10 hour day, I was too pooped to focus on my own art. I think every artist faces this at one time or another. It's a bit of a risk, but I'm excited for the creative days that lie ahead. I am now a fulltime freelancer so I hoping to balance my own work with side projects.

I'll try to keep the work coming...although some of it's top secret...sorry.

Ye shipwreck!!!

So...I've been busy working on the short animations I mentioned a few posts ago. In between making headway on them and doodling in my sketchbook, I've been drawing on newspaper photos. It's officially a new hobby of mine! I liked this one because I grew up on the ocean. As a kid, I always imagined there lived a sea monster in the Swampscott Bay.
