updates and previews

Ok so recently I finished up a clip that I was luckily invited to direct for the new season of Yo Gabba Gabba. Equally lucky, I was invited to show the Morcheeba “Enjoy The Ride” and Jakob Dylan “Evil Is Alive And Well” videos at the San Francisco International Animation Festival! Gene Deitch is even gonna be there, and unfortunately I have to miss it.

I’m missing it though for a good reason. Over the next few weeks I have to concentrate on my upcoming (first!) solo art show at the Grassy Knoll Gallery in Portland, OR.

The good Ward Jenkins is currently showing at the gallery so be sure to check him out, and here are some unfinished previews to my show “Culture Jelly”…



The show’s not entirely comprised of vikings, I promise.

seattle show and spoiler alert radio

Before I took off for Seattle I had a call to be a part of a radio show on 88.1FM, WELH, Providence, RI, so how could I pass that up? It’s a great show called Spoiler Alert Radio which interviews directors and discusses film and such.


Buckle up for unbridled ramblings.

Hey so have you ever been to Seattle? When it’s sunny outside it sincerely can’t be beat. I guess I missed it pretty bad, but didn’t even know how much until I got back. Gah! Love that place.

Here’s some photographic evidence of the events…

One day I’ll post some drawings again.
Until then…

hello seattle

Hey so just a quick note… I’ll be headed up to Seattle for the Animation Show on June 20th. Come out to the Varsity and give a shout, will ya?

Oh and there’s a nice and crisp QT posted over here of the Morcheeba piece “Gained the World”…

gained the world

Morcheeba graciously asked me back to direct their second single off the Dive Deep album. Luckily I had the grand talents of Eric Kilkenny, Saxton Moore and Darin Bendalllending their animation wizardry as well as a generous tech hand from Sir Todd Schott. Of course Dan Kreeger and posse over at One Small Step were, as always, the finest a production company can be.

Endless thanks to Morcheeba and the label making both videos sincerely good times. Hey lemme know what you think, will ya?

In other news, just started up a new music video and tied up the end for the Animation Show. Did I ever tell you that Eric Kilkenny and Gene Blakefield were a big part of the Animation Show’s opener piece? I’m truly an ass. These guys animate circles around me.

animation show and captain dumpers

Say there… check out this trailer for ye olde Animation Show…

Austin’s show was serious fun. Everything went really well. The people running the program are solid gold. I got to chat with the mighty Mike Judge who was very complimentary and generous, which pretty much blew my mind. The whole operation is top notch and that’s no bluff. Good times are guaranteed. Go check them out over here…

Oh hey here are some decorated admirals that were dumped on my hard drive. Rest in peace, cap’ns.
