Please go check out my new song on iTunes.
It’s a parody of History Channel’s Ancient Aliens, one of my favorite shows.
Also check my youtube channel, the video will be coming up in days

My spoof hit #1
Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

Not bad for it’s first day, my last animation hit number 1 comedy on Current.com

And another one of my animations was in the featured box on Current’s “movie” category.
It didn’t hit number one, but it’s cool they featured it.

Bush Motivated Me
Thursday, October 29th, 2009

To make this animation.

George Bush - Motivational Speakerator - watch more funny videos
 

You’ve seen the commercial …
Friday, October 23rd, 2009

I’m talking about the kinda edgy, maybe sexy, Wonderful Pistachio commercials. Sarah Palin’s ex-future son-in-law was in one?
Anyway, they’re having a contest. Here’s my entry. Have a look and if you please - vote me up.

A still from a new animation
Friday, October 9th, 2009

Sorry, I’ve been away for a while finishing a new movie script, my fourth. Which I’m now sending to producers, production companies and anyone else in the film industry who never checks their email or wont speak to new writers.
While all of that’s happening I thought I’d start a new animation.
I’ll keep ya posted.

A bunch of bull
Sunday, June 28th, 2009

Here’s a 3d toon bull I just modeled. I still need to rig and make some facial morphs so it can walk and talk.
After that comes the painted texture so it can look more like a bull, but you get the idea.
The shot on the left shows my original, low-poly mesh. The right has been […]

A quick and dirty spoof of a real jerk.
Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Can’t help it, I just can’t stand this guy. Hopefully it’s worth a giggle. (It was fun to do)

Star Wars spoof
Saturday, January 17th, 2009

And here it is …
***go to youtube to see a high quality version.

Bob Dylan as ….
Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

… Darth Vader?
Or Bob Vader?  Or Darth Dylan?
Anyway, it’s for an animation project I’m working on.

I’ll be doing seven different impersonations.  I’m a little scared.

Ba na na na nuh …
Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

After studying some Pink Panther footage, I decided to see if I could animate a short scene and capture a little of that Pink Panther magic.

Gee, that’s neat
Friday, February 15th, 2008

Here I’m shooting for a fifties toon look. It’s a commercial spot running within an animation I’m working on.

Today I saw a painting
Saturday, February 9th, 2008

by Albert Marquet. It inspired me to rough out a painting without thinking of form, only color.

Maybe I should give up animation and start painting again. I mean, these two small paintings were done in an evening, while even a short animation takes me a minimum of two months. Hmmm ….

Above is […]

Never Enough Space
Saturday, February 2nd, 2008

It’s just a test 3d render, but after doing it I realized I get more of a thrill from draping photo textures over spheres and rendering them against a generated starfield than I do creating a painting. There’s just a sense of wonder to it I can’t explain.

Forgetting how to draw
Thursday, January 31st, 2008

Some new “sketchy” characters I’m working on. Ya know, it’s weird, but being trained classicly as an artist is a handicap when trying to create cute, whimsical characters. And yep, I was a huge fan of Dr. Katz.

My new Action Star - “??????? ????”

Update on Virtual Product
Monday, January 21st, 2008

For months now I’ve been trying to come up with a virtual 3d product display using video game engines. The idea is simple: instead of playing games, you “play” a product to see how it works. It’s the next best thing to getting to actually touch the product, and you’ll be able to […]

Dim lit room test
Tuesday, January 15th, 2008

I’ve done about a BILLION tests over the past four years. First testing every 2D and 3D package there is, then testing how well they share files with other apps, then how well they render and how fast or slow they render and on and on and on …. Not to mention learning […]

Toon Render Test
Sunday, December 23rd, 2007

Still working on a 3D toon look.  Getting closer.

3D Anime Render Test
Sunday, December 23rd, 2007

OK, so 2D takes FOREVER to do! So I’m working on a 2D or anime look using 3D models.
