The Sky is Falling Public Service Announcement I directed is a finalist in a major global warming PSA contest. Celebrity judges, including (Cameron Diaz, George Clooney!), narrowed it down to 20 and now the public determines the winner. If you could pass/post/email this on to friends and family, that'd be awesome.

Please let people know they need to create a free account. It takes 30 seconds to set's a tad annoying, but well worth it. The link to the site is here:

Monster Mash

A client asked me to draw a picture of a monster for his five-year old son. I couldn't resist and doodled this right away.

Color Studies

I've been trying to nail down the Philippe and Pierre background designs. This afternoon I worked on a couple quick color studies. These took me about 20 minutes each because I'm more interested in the capturing the color and light, than getting anal over the little details. More to come...

Philippe and Pierre...Type!

So, the production of The Idiotic Adventures of Philippe and Pierre is in full swing. I'm working with a small team of monstrously talented folks to produce eight one-minute episodes. I'm trying to nail down the little odds and ends such as type treatments and website crapola. These are some sketches that I whipped up this afternoon. Hopefully, I'll be posting something of real substance soon...but in the meantime, this is all you're getting.

Tuesday, October 2, 2007 the corner of my mind.

Ten years ago, I was a senior in high school and didn't take art all that seriously. I was more interested in being President of my class and other nerdy things. However, it's amazing I still drew as much as I did. I recently came across a pile of old drawings from that time. These images were created between the fall of '97 and spring of ' about different styles!
