The Roll Yer Own show was greatness. Definitely reminds me of the shows 911 Media Arts Center throw in Seattle. Something fun about seeing all this work that goes largely unseen. Of course I met the very talented and super friendly Ward Jenkins. I tried to absorb as much talent energy as I could when I shook his hand. Also met a gaggle of the great guys from the Harvey Birdman show. I’m terrible at remembering names, but the good sir Steve Vitale let me know that Brian de Tagyos, Darrell Phillips, Bryan Capik, Adam Fuchs, Dan Bodinof, and Nate Pratt were all there and I know I met most if not all.
Shamefully, I’m a face guy not a name guy. It was great meeting all you talented muthas regardless!
Of course I hooked up with my old schoolmates Chris Fox (animator on War Photographer) and Steve Eidson. Two goodfellas that are mighty powerful with the pencil too. Always a pleasure, gents.
The whole thing went well. Glad to have participated. Hope I can stick around longer next time and take some studio tours.
Thanks to Charles Judson from CinemATL.com for snapping the suave pic posted above. Sounds like those kids are doing some good things over there, too.
Oh and here’s a rough, comp character recently filed in the round file. See ya, wino!
So I won this Gameboy and a webcam at CompUSA, but I really won’t use either one. If you wanna get down on either that’d be great. Click here to see the auction list.
On another note, I’ll be attending the Roll Yer Own film festival in Atlanta this upcoming Tuesday Feb 21st. They’re showing “War Photographer” and doing a little Q&A afterward. Should be cool. Swing by and say “wus’happenin’.”
Hey so I added a few links to some incredible artists as well over in the “digibrethren” section. Defintitely check ‘em out. Also, the good sir Todd Kaufman has posted some of my recent work over on his powerhouse blog and the fine folk of Cold Hard Flash even gave us a shout out. Thanks for the lovin’! I’m excited to be a part of the show and working with such megatalents.
Ok and so to not make this and all text/no art post, here’s a quickie. Stay fresh.
Lately I’ve luckily been busy working on a project with the mighty Neptoon Studios (those kids = ubertalented) so I haven’t had much time to share anything. Due to that, I’ll post yet another teaser image. This one will hopefully be making a much more official appearance in the very near future unless things drastically change. Nothing much to look at currently, but I think he works well once you see the full context.
Anyhow… for what it’s worth, eh?
Put my 12 x 12 Wacom up on ebay. It’s served me well, but I don’t have a serial port home for it any longer. Check ‘er out.
On another note… here’s a clip from a super-secret-always-procrastinated-project that will hopefully one day see the light.
Here’s a little something Ruben Fleischer and I were working on long ago, but it never went anywhere. Just fer fun.
So 2005 was great. Thanks to everyone who watched the War Photographer video. It’s easily been my most visible work to date. I’m supremely flattered people are responding so well to it in general. Res is mentioning it in their upcoming Jan/Feb issue and the good Sandy Hunter went so far as to name War Photographer “Best video of 2005″! Beyond Res and Pitchfork Media this thing also was included in on Channel Frederator’s “Best 5 of ’05″ and has been springing up on a few other lists as well. Hopefully this means more working on videos in ’06. I’m going to do my best to make it happen.
Things have shaken up a little around here at the end of of the year. The biggest news being One Small Step in London is representing me for music video and commercial work in the UK and I couldn’t be more excited. They also run an art gallery so I couldn’t imagine a better company to be affiliated with.
In the meantime, I’m knee deep in pitch land. I’ve got three currently on the burner and while it’s cool to do, it’s not exactly keeping the family fed (yet at least.) If you’ve got some illustration, animation, character design needs…. give a brutha a shout! Enough with the holidays… I’m ready to work!
