Inktober 2016

Hey everyone! Here is a small update of my #Inktober run this year! I had so much fun going to back to a traditional medium. It's nice to commit to lines as opposed to making everything perfect. By the end of the month, I discovered I love using brush and ink!

Foreplay (Series)

This is a little series I started that I plan to frame sometime soon. Hopefully, I'll find some gallery space in Los Angeles soon to showcase it!

Digital Experimentation

Bon soir! And like I promised... here is the image dump from the last couple months! I've been experimenting a lot, trying to find something I am comfortable working with.

I did this study of my neighborhood in LA as a way to build up my digital painting knowledge.

Donut fall in love with her.
She will devour your soul!

A little fun self portrait I did, haha.

This next batch is a fun bunch I did testing out a new Photoshop brush.

2D Prop Design

Hey there wandering eyes. It's been awhile since I've done an update here, so I thought I'd post some prop design stuff I did in January!
I've been occupied with some freelance work (which I'm excited to share once it goes public!), but I plan to do an update with an image dump soon of some personal work. I've been experimenting a lot with different styles and mediums, so it should be a fun one!

My Newest Stop Motion Demo Reel is up!

Hey there! I'm just going to plug my current reel here and break it down (very) briefly below.
Hope you enjoy! Feel free to contact me about any jobs you would like to collaborate on or perform for you.

Reel Breakdown:
Essentially, everything in my current reel are all projects that I directed, produced, edited, composited and built from the ground up. The only shots in my reel where I only did the animation, are the shots that include the 'mad scientist' from the music video I worked on "Baby It's You!"

So I recently finished up a new animated short I call, "Reverie."
This actually started out as an acting exercise... (as most of my projects do...) and I decided to just keep animating until I got bored. Unfortunately, I had to stop animating abrupting because I recently relocated from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles.

Oh god, don't even get me started on how much my laptop, that I had to use to shoot on, kept giving me problems throughout the whole shoot. I swear, I can't get a break when it comes to technology and having to wing everything. It really build character consequently, so I'll take it.
I should probably consider building a motion graphic portfolio soon.

Above is a shot of the basement I was working in. It's a clutter! Wouldn't have been the wiser.

And lastly, just a little still from the short.

Now onto editing together a new demo reel!
