Last night at 1AM I got to visit some animation friends at the New England Art Institute. We watched cartoons as they pulled an all-nighter for their team project, and I got to play with some very fancy stuff; a giant screen tablet and a magical program called SAI. Totally worth only getting 90 minutes sleep!!

This is my first real attempt at animation, I was photoshopping over video frames. I think it's ok for my first time, but it fell short of my vision. There was a steep learning curve, I figured out a lot of shortcuts after the fact. Next one will be quicker. MEH!!! No more freshman classes ever, at least.

I'm in the middle of a two-week intensive video class to fulfill a degree requirement. 6 hours of class, four hours of homework, five days a week. Was not psyched going into this, but I am now!!! My final project will be an animation, featuring about 898 more frames like these two. Photoshop on top of digital video.

Here's a one-page preview of sorts for my upcoming comic series YUCKY. This page is a parody of a scene in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. I wanted to see how doing a full page went, before I try to do 20 at a time. Shit took forevs!! Hopefully, with more experience, the process will quicken up.

YES!! Dead Broke Records from NY is going to put out a tape of my old band. We recorded last year, and broke up when Josh moved to Orlando. I didn't like how it came out, and i wasn't sure why. Eventually I realized it didn't match the noisiness of our live show, so I ran the whole thing through distortion and I think it sounds great. This band is over, but it feels great to be getting it out into the world. It's giving me momentum for my next music project, YUCKY, which is going to tie in with a comic I'm making. Thank you Mike Dumps. Check out the site, all these bands rule. http://www.deadbrokerecords.com

My first comic!! My illustration 3 class was asked to make an instructional pamphlet, so I used it as an opportunity to make this. The original is big (2 feet wide). This took forever to design, then to ink. Lots of trial and error throughout, especially the process of scanning and combining different sections, and coloring and assembling the word balloons, which were done on a different layer of vellum.
