The stuff dreams are made of...

So I finished another digital piece. Probably the last one before my vacation/move out. Mainly because I'm really busy packing and spending time with all my friends here in Austin. I really like how this turned out, it's nice to do some illustration again, after all the animating I've been working on. It's inspired by a nightmare I had on right before Halloween... I tried to get it done to have it up for Halloween but got caught up working on costumes and such instead. But anyways here it is... and uh, Happy Halloween.

better late than never, right?

So many many months ago, Christmas of '07 to be exact. A friend of mine asked me for a picture of his favorite character, Morpheus from Vertigo's Sandman, as a X-mas gift. Well with the loss of my dog, work and then the animation collaborations with his roommate I never got around to completing that image... until now. So nearly one year later I finally got him his gift. Hoorah! I feel sort of bad, but he didn't mind me constantly pushing it aside for other projects. I also featured it on my illustration page. I'm quite happy with how it turned out...

The Legend.

Did a digital sketch/illustration today, well started it yesterday and finished today. It's Sarah Connor from Terminator 2. I seriously love Terminator, and she definitely is an idol of mine. She's just one of the most kick ass female characters ever created, and her transformation from the first film to the second is just astounding. Mad props to Linda Hamilton, and of course James Cameron for creating such a fantastic series.

It doesn't feel pity or remorse...

So my computer just crashed the other day. Well I wasn't home at the time, I had to hear about it over the phone. But sure enough when I got home to inspect it it was dead. Well not dead, my smaller boot drive works fine, but my storage drive, the one that holds basically everything, has called it quits. Taking basically everything with it, I've tried using a program to salvage anything, but it doesn't look like much can be saved.

I am beyond frustration now. Not to mention the loss of so many things all at once has me a bit out of it as well... I'm just completely stoic now. I realize what a loss it is, yet the only thing I'm grieving at present is my inability to finish watching Lost.

demo reel is up..

so I've been working on my website. Not really changing the look, because I like it as is, but I went ahead and made it more text based so it's ten times easier to edit.. hooray. So what's new? Well for one my demo reel and a clip reel for the animation from Wishing Well are up on the Animation page.

Oh more good news, Wishing Well got into another film fest; The Los Angeles International Children's Film Fest. Yea us. Well back to the website. I also added an "Other" section that features more of my photoshop/design work that was done for my job. And of course there is a link to this blog. Well now that that's done keep an eye out for more art. :)

nice night for a walk, eh?

Our short film got into the UFrame film fest in Portugal. Hooray. Too bad it's so far away. But we'll see how it does. I'll be trying to re-work my site a bit before that happens, as well as help my friend (the director) build a site for himself.

Now I've got less than a month to try and crank some work out for Comic-con. I don't know what the hell to do though. I guess I'll just work on the other pages for my old mini-comic, since it would take me too long to write out a whole new comic...

Well we'll see. I'll keep you posted.

What's up doc?

So it's been a while. But I managed to finish my animation on time, whoo-hoo. It was nice to be doing some animating again, but I have to admit I'm glad it's finally finished. Now my friend whose film it is featuring it in is pitching it to different film fests. So hopefully it will be out there. I'll try and cut together a selection of clips soon so as to let people see what I did. Can't show you the whole short though. Save that for the 'fests.

in other news my computer has been running a bit slow lately. I'm sad. I don't know if I've just got too many programs on it or what, maybe I'll re-format it and start from scratch see if that helps. If any of you know what to do in this situation let me know...

"about the artist"

So recently my friends were shooting a short film, titled "about the artist." My friend approached me and asked if I could make some paintings for the film... about 5 of them. I agreed, but unfortunately due to the thanksgiving holidays, script-revisions, and a cast that well had not been cast, my time frame which I thought would be 2 weeks turned into 4 days...

So in lieu of the short deadline I had to work in acrylic, which I haven't done in a long time.. but it was fun. The first three were relatively easy, and for the last two, I did need to pull an all-nighter to complete... but I got them done...

So there they are...

The last one of the couple in bed had paint thrown over it at the end of the film...
but I don't have a shot of it with the large paint splatter...

well I think that was mainly it. I'm now working on a Christmas gift for a friend. who wants a painting/drawing of Sandman...
