A little late in the game, but the Hanazuki short film that I co-directed with Allison Craig is now playing in theaters in front of the MLP movie. I'm very proud of it and of the amazing crew of artists at Titmouse who made it happen. It looks just incredible and like nothing else. Being able to help direct, storyboard, and animate something for the big screen is the achievement of a long-held goal.
Another first I never expected to have at the beginning of this year was doodling in the margins of my notes for the theatrical sound mix session.
Here are some of my rough animations from the TMNT special Half Shell Heroes: Blast To The Past! It's currently available on Nick.com and will also be airing on Nickelodeon this coming Saturday, November 22nd at 11am (ET/PT). It was a super fun project to be a part of and to work alongside some of the most talented animators in the business.
If the 8-year old me would have known that one day I'd get to animate Raph fighting a Pteranodon I probably would have exploded.
It has been long, long, far too long since I've posted anything, art-related or otherwise. Time to start it back up again! This was the summer of dinosaurs for me at Titmouse, so to kick things off here's some anatomy warm-ups.
I love working in animation, but sometime one of the side effects I find is when I spend all day drawing, I spend less time drawing just for myself. But then sometimes I also find myself drawing dinosaurs for no particular reason.
Today marks my 1-year anniversary working at Titmouse, Inc. It's been a wild, busy, strange year! Here's my film for Titmouse's annual 5-Second Day Film Festival. I originally intended to animate it but something about the key poses appealed to me to let it be. If you can tell me what this thing's about I'd very much like to know.
