Lovebirds' Nest

I always grew up calling this particular style of preparing eggs and toast a "UFO" thanks to my mother, but apparently most other people call it a Bird's Nest.  I found this particular heart shaped one, and decided it was a Lovebird's Nest.

An Ocean of Sweets



A birthday card I made for my sister. Originally it was just going to be an island made out of candy, but then I added a face and some how tentacles appeared and now it's a sea monster. Oh well... happy accidents do happen!

Somewhere over the rainbow...



This was inspired by my friend and former coworker, Liz, who educated me about the true nature of where rainbows come from. Besides containing a wealth of completely scientific information on rainbows, she has an obscene collection of other esoteric knowledge and obscure historical facts. She is also a fantastic illustrator and designer, and I highly recommend checking out her blog. You will see many pretty pictures and you may even learn a thing or two.

Happy Father's Day!



It's been a little while since my last post. Things have been pretty busy since moving up to San Francisco and I have a bunch of work to post in the next few weeks. In the meantime here's a card I made for Father's day. Here's to you Dad!

Farewell Los Angeles



I got a full time job in San Francisco working for a social games company. They want me in house, so it looks like I'm going to be moving away for a little while. I love Los Angeles and it's been fun living and working here, but for the right job I'll move, and getting paid to draw and animate all day ain't a half bad gig. It's been fun LA, I'll miss you dearly.

Happy New Year!



Happy New Year Everybody!
Let's make sure 2011 is a great year!

(Yes, I know this post was supposed to go up before the previous one, but I'm dumb about these things so forgive my tardiness)

Ninja vs Samurai








Earlier Concepts:





I took an awesome character design class over at CDA taught by David Colman. This is some of the cleaned up work organized into model sheets and some beat boards I threw together. I did tailor some changes in the character design between the boards and the model sheets. I do like the final look better as it's a little more streamlined and clean.
