Sleepy giant roars
a deep breath hot and fuming
daylight soothes the beast

Moving Along

Well Everybody, its been nice being here but I'm moving on.  I'm going to try my hand at doing my blog on my own website.  so for my further adventures, go to


Mt. Bodacious is coming

First Try at Character Animation

So this year I decided to sign up for Skillshare.  If you don't know what Skillshare is it is an online learning platform for artists, designers, makers, and entrepreneurs. I had to join because both Aaron Draplin and Yuko Shimizu had classes on there and I had to take them. Yesterday, I decided to flex my After Effects chops and create a walking animation for Frazier Davidson's class.  I've been working in after effects for about 10 years but never really tried pursuing animation animation with it.  The class was great.  I decided to use my Cintiq and draw the boys from Darjeeling Limited and started with Francis played by Owen Wilson.  I will hopefully soon finish doing the other brothers to finish the piece.  I hope you enjoy!

Hey Ricky or How I Came to Paint Rick Moranis

So I just finished a big #finealt (trying to come up with a name for what I do, trying) thrift store painting featuring a giant Rick Moranis head.  How did I get here? Do I have a love for Rick Moranis? Why would someone do this to a perfectly good painting?  While I can't always mind map an art project, I have a pretty good idea where this one came from.
It starts with #meetingnotes.  Meeting notes is an ongoing project of mine that organically started as I had to go to meetings at my day job  Many of these meetings didn't pertain much to me, so I started drawing to a) pass the time and b) work on my drawing skills.  When I started, I made mostly doodles.  Over time I began working on more complicated and intricate sketches of people (mostly celebrities that I admired).  I would post these on my instagram on Fridays to the she-grin of friends and fans.
