Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee


I recently designed and did some animation for the premiere episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee featuring Louis CK. You can check out the link above to see the episode. It was a complete pleasure to work under these two comedic icons. Jerry wanted it to be reminiscent of those “Sein-imation” shorts from the Seinfeld DVDs but I tried to add a bit of my own sensibilities to it. Some of my design exploration is pictured above.

Cloudy 2: Earl Scouts


Here's the second Cloudy 2 short I had the pleasure of working on.
Once again I did a bunch of character layout and animation for it.
This was actually the last one we worked on. Throughout the entire production of these shorts I couldn't wait to get my hands on Earl. I did a lot of the stuff in the beginning and at the very end of him screaming and flipping around. A really fun character to animate. At first I was bummed when I heard Terry Crews took over for Mr. T. But after working with his performance, I have to say that Terry Cruise ended up doing a much better job with the character. There's nothing better than getting some fun, energetic voice acting to animate with.

Check out this short I worked on for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2.
It's the first in a series of 4 shorts that I did some character layout and animation for.
I had the pleasure of working on these with a ton of talented people. Keep your eyes open for the rest. They'll also be on the DVD / Blu Ray release of the movie.

80s


Here are some unused ultra-80s character designs I did.
I was going for a Patrick Nagel / Bruce Timm / Jem and the Holograms sort of thing.
I don't usually draw in this style so it was fun to experiment with something new.

Metlife - Everyone



I don't know why I never posted this, but here's a metlife commercial we worked on at 6PH for the 2012 Superbowl. It was a pretty quick project but a fun opportunity to animate some iconic characters. Who better to buy life insurance from than cartoon characters....anvil coverage is extra though.....also I'm surprised Fat Albert was able to get coverage.

Sparkle Sparkle



I actually really enjoyed Dredd. It was a simple action movie with some fantastic visuals. It definitely gave me the vibe of an 80s action flick.
Plus. Lots of sparkles.

The Secret Society of Hot Tub Gentlemen


I was cleaning off my desktop and I found some animation from an unfinished 24 hour film Cheyenne and I attempted a little over a year ago.

It was a 1 minute film about two "gentlemen" hot tubbers.
It was definitely a little ambitious for a 24 hour film, but we still got a lot of really fun and expressive drawings and animation out of it. It also gave us a chance to collaborate and experiment. 
At the end of the day, I guess that's the point...whether it was completed or not. *hangs head in shame*
I figured it was about time to post some of the work we did together.


Chey and I designed the characters together. "Snoots" is the orange guy and "Sleaze" is the green dude. 
I feel like they're a great balance of our styles. I can definitely see elements of us both in each character.

I boarded it, Cheyenne painted the beautiful BGs,
and we both did character layout and animation.


I can't take any credit for the image above. Cheyenne did this hilarious shot.
Always love working with her.


There was no dialogue in the film. It was all set to this Jackie Davis song.
Sexy, right?

GIRLS: Fact or Fiction


Above is a teaser for my contribution to Light Grey Art Lab's Girls: Fact or Fiction gallery show.
The show features 100+ artists paying tribute to both real and fictitious women.
The most exciting part about this show is that they will be publishing a reversible book that will feature the real women on one side and the fictitious women on the other.

I contributed a piece based on Maude Lebowski.

The book is for sale HERE for $25 and will begin shipping in December.
It looks incredible and you should definitely grab a copy for the holidays.

The projects curated by Light Grey Art Lab really are incredible. The level of professionalism and care that goes behind their event organization is better than any indie gallery I've seen before.
I'm extremely proud to be a part of this project and I'll be sharing the pages of the book with a ton of talented artists such as: Cheyenne Curtis, Scott Forbes, and Nichole Ter Horst

Cheyenne Sunshine and the Daytime Players


Check out this collab that Cheyenne and I did a while back.
It started as an inside joke about her singing in a band of decrepit animatronic animals, and blossomed into this magical piece.
I did the chicken and the elephant and she did Cheyenne Sunshine, the rat and the cat.
Since I've known Cheyenne, she has inspired me to no end. I can't tell you how much fun it is to get the creative juices flowing with her. If you don't already know of her incredible work. go look. 
You will be charmed.

Below is another collaborative effort from a while back.
It was a design done by Chey, that I felt compelled to animate.
There's so much personality and honesty in her work that I cannot resist.
