Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

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

To make this animation.

George Bush - Motivational Speakerator - watch more funny videos
 

You’ve seen the commercial …

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 quick and dirty spoof of a real jerk.

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

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 …

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

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 […]

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.

Dodge Sample
Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

This isn’t a finished commercial. It’s pieces from a script which will be combined with a new voice over track, narration, music, backdrops and an animation by another company of a huge block that gets chopped, then splits.


What was new for me in this piece was lateral movement, pointing and […]

And now the 2D version
Wednesday, August 22nd, 2007

It’s the first part of the script, then replayed in slow motion.
The third guy will be chopping a block of “high prices.”


To separate everything out, I put a blur on the background and a slight blur on the two middle characters. But that’s just a matter of preference. […]

Can this guy play?
Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

Just goofing around here. The song is red house by Jimi Hendrix and the guitar dude is an actual company logo brought to life. I’m just seeing what kind of animation looks I can get out of him.
Anyway … I hadn’t been home to see my pretty baby in about ninety nine and […]

Animated Commercial Test
Friday, March 30th, 2007


Here I’m working out the motion of the character. Good motion just takes time, and in some instances, you have to do some good old fashioned Disney style “frame by frame” motion like when the characer is pointing. At that point his hand has to morph from pointing […]

It’s all my fault, I entered my animation on the last day of voting … AND IT WON!!!!
It’s so cool, they’re flying us out to Hollywood for some Sony studio tours and stuff, plus we get to see a live taping of “King of Queens.”
So thanks ever so much for the votes! Oh […]
