Fancy Birds

A few weeks ago, I had a few gifts to make so I busted out the pens and watercolors. They were a lot of fun to make, I hope you enjoy them. Thanks for looking!

Hippo Poem

Howdy Folks!

Here is a little painting/sketch I did for fun the other night. As a break from sitting on a computer all day, I busted out the acrylics and color pencils for a hour. I was looking for a toned working surface, so I painted on the back of some illustration board. Originally, I was going to paint several animals, but a poem seemed more appropriate. Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking!

The Adventures of Inky Pete

Howdy howdy!

Here is a new/old illustration I dug up. I did the drawing in pencil and then finished the coloring in Photoshop. It was a lot of fun to work on. I wrote a few stories about Inky Pete that I will hopefully illustrate sometime in the near future.

Whenever I get a chance, I head over to Seattle with my sketching buddies for a day of drawing. Here are some of the sketches I threw down the past few weeks:

Super Cosmic Film Festival in Seattle

Hi Folks!

I am extremely stoked to tell you that my latest film will be screened at the National Film Festival for Talented Youth! NFFTY takes place every year during the last weekend of April in and around the Seattle Space Needle complex. All the filmmakers are 22 and under and are from all over the world, making for a really fun and exciting mix of films.

My short is a little comedy about card playing robots. If you want to stick around after the screening, I would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have. The festival is a blast, I recommend you come for all four days of it. This year the opening night after party is going to be on the top of the Space Needle. There are also panels and industry pros who attend, so there is a lot to learn as well as see.

My film, "Whats the Deals?" will be playing on Saturday, April 29th, at 1pm at the SIFF Cinema. For more info, directions, and tickets, visit the website (My film is playing in the "Animation!" screening):

Hope to see you there!
