I’ve so excited to have three little paintings in The Hive’s Secret Art of Animators 3‘s side dish show, Saturday Morning Cartoons! I grew up on Nickelodeon, and Rocko has largely contributed to the weirdo I am today. Yay! Come out this Saturday for the opening!
“CAT BIRD COYOTE” is a film I designed and animated for Amy Raasch, as part of a larger project of hers about animal behavior. The film premieres today on Huffington Post Entertainment, and will be available to watch on every Virgin America flight through January on the Boing Boing channel! It has also been collecting awards at multiple film festivals. This little film is going on a big journey!
I had the pleasure of working with SoulPancake on an animated motivational piece by Tim Ferriss for their Unmistakable Creative series!
I’m super honored to have been invited to participate in QPop’s “Bros vs Bros” art show, focusing on Super Mario Bros and the Shaw Bros. Growing up on Nintendo, I couldn’t pass up making fan art of some favorite foes turning the tables on Mario! Leave it to a koopa to put an unripe Yoshi egg in a [?] block.
This year I had the pleasure of creating animations that were incorporated into the “Rockin’ Universe” light shows at Six Flags Magic Mountain! There are three 5-minute shows, which blink and flash over 42,000 lights across multiple buildings and a Christmas tree.
Lighting wizard Zach Moore did all the lighting design and programming for the three shows — he gets credit for making the whole thing come to life; I only supplied animation sequences. People really like it! I got all warm and fuzzy inside when everyone applauded at the end. It was quite a fun experience to animate on my computer and see it up across the buildings just a few minutes later!
This dazzling display is in the DC Universe of Six Flags Magic Mountain, should you decide to experience it alongside roller coasters
