So I just spent some time visiting my nephew, so that partially explains this drawing. Those little play things babies stand in are cool, but they make no sense, unless they are used to control a giant robot body.

So some crazy stuff has happened recently (here's a bit more info if you haven't heard it from me already) . In short, I'm looking for any and all animation opportunities. So I want to start building a new portfolio, and wanted to take a super simple story and try to do some visual development work for it as if I were building a real project. So i'm working on a version of three little pigs! So this is in progress, and I may change the designs as things evolve/ as I decide what would be fun to do next. Let me know what you think, and if you know of any sweet visual developement gigs please email me!!

This painting was for my wonderful sister who just had a little boy on Wednesday! He is my first nephew, so it's pretty awesome, I couldn't be there in person but I got the painting done to greet him at least. My sister and her husband chose the awesome swamp theme and helped choose a direction from a few sketches. My mom made a matching gator quilt to top it all off. So yeah one spoiled little dude! It was acrylic on wood panel 18 by 24 in.

Hey there, I know it's been forever. Surprisingly my lack of posts is not entirely due to laziness, I've been spending most of my free time on a book project I'm doing with some coworkers that should be really cool, which is the main reason I've been ghost protocol.
Above are watercolor sketches I did during my trip to the Florida Keys last week which was a blast! The Gator just kind of came out as I was watching swamp people and doing preliminary sketches for a swamp piece I'm working on for my future nephew! I'll try to get more stuff for fun/practice up here on the blog while I work on all my other projects!

So almost in time for the Chinese New Year I wanted start a goal to paint something every week of the year. This past weekend, I did a painting nearby my house in the Presidio for a charity auction at work. So the idea is that I'll posting these regularly, but if they are quicker small studies I may be grouping a few of them together.

This piece is inspired by the play "Almost, Maine" by John Cariani. I was approached by my friend who is directing a production of the play next week in San Diego. After talking with her about some of the rich visuals of the play, and after thinking how it would be cool to do something that crossed over into another art form this piece came to about.
A large canvas print will be on display by the ticket booth, and I will be selling a limited number of other signed prints if anyone is interested Click Here!

*I decided to go back and make it more of a finished painting.*

So I did this sketch and thought it was pretty funny and worthy to paint up this evening. I figure future advances in technology will allow us to cross breed many more species and create status symbols for the rich.
You may note this is reminiscent of the very inspiring Bobby Chiu, Intially I didn't have his style in mind but he his style definitely influenced the piece subconsciously and consciously toward the end!

So here's what I've been spending my tuesday nights on. Of course there are always things I look back and would have done differently, but the class was great and I learned a ton. It makes a huge difference when you can ask someone who know hows to make pretty much anything, and provides you with the tools and materials. (Richard Miller our teacher was in the ILM model shop for like 25 years. He had some amazing stories.) It was 8 weekly classes three hours each, I finally finished painting it this past Tuesday. I hope you guys like it, I've been staring at it way too long! (the piece of wood is holding up the arm because he was starting to droop down even after baking unfortunately)

Incase anyone wanted an update on my quest for a decent digital paint setup: I returned my Imac, (My old tablet was too small for a massive 27 in screen, so instead of getting a bigger tablet I realized I could just get a cintiq and a cheaper PC for not too much more. Little did I know they are really hard to find, but after much searching I got a hold of a refurbished cintiq 21ux! Man it is nice, I did this little doodle this evening, after 8 hours of work, and 3 hours of a maquette class, lots of art today! The class is taught by ILM model shop veteran Richard miller, It's been really fun I'll be posting my maquette in a few weeks which is actually the older version of this little guy.

A friend at worked liked a tiger sketch I did a while back and wanted to model it! I thought that was awesome and told him I would update it and do a turn around of it. It's taken forever to get around to it, luckily he has been patient, but I think I am finally ready to move on/ see what he does with it.
This was a lunch doodle, that I cleaned up a little. Fat panda's have never been drawn before I know. So friends I know I should be posting more, and actually I'm getting a new setup at home (a brand new just updated 27 in imac!) so maybe I will . . . maybe.
