Here are two of the poster designs I did for the Fare Thee Well Tour Grateful Dead shows. The One on the left is the Santa Clara show, which has the Golden Gate Bridge, the Rainbow background and the Brokedown Palace lyrics. The Chicago poster on the right Has the Fireworks for the 4th of July show, the Chicago skyline and Ripple lyrics.

Here is an article I wrote about the legacy of Disney Animation Art and how the history of the studio shaped the world of Disney Art collecting today.

Here is a new lighting reel I just cut together. It does not contain my Frozen work, because I was in the Layout department at that time. There is a separate reel containing layout work.

I've been working on this 3d Illusion over the past few days. In order to see it in 3d, you will need to blur your eyes so that the two images converge in the middle. That middle image will be in 3d, and you should be able to focus on it so that it becomes very clear. Let me know what you think!

A few more!

Here are a few more cels that I've been playing with. Starting to get a feel for the process now. These are so fun to make!

Cel Painting Series - part 1

I have really been wanting to do some cel painting recently, so I finally went to Blick and picked up some dura-lar. It is similar to acetate, but it is acid free and ages much better than acetate does. I also got some India ink to do the line work. It has definitely taken a few tries to figure out the action of the pen on such a slippery medium, but I think I'm finally starting to figure out what works and what doesn't work. For the paint, I am using cel vinyl cartoon color. I absolutely love this paint. It is super vibrant, and sits right where the brush leaves it. Here are a few early explorations into this series. I will try to post more soon!

Here's a piece from a few days ago. Originally, it was full color, but I decided to simplify it into a two-tone design. Maybe I'll print some shirts. Guess that depends if people are psyched about wearing bear silhouettes. I suppose I'll have to do some market research on that one.

Decided to do a bit of digital painting, because I felt like I hadn't painted in ages. It always feels good to get back into painting after being away for a while.

 These pictures are from a photography meetup that I did yesterday near downtown. I was shooting with a 70-300 lens on the nikon d200.

I had an awesome trip back to Massachusetts last week. While I was there, my girlfriend and I visited Rockport, MA. Rockport is a quaint fishing town northeast of Boston and the look of the buildings and surroundings are similar in many ways to Cape Cod. Here are a collection of photos that I took while we were there. I borrowed a nikon d800 with a 18-200 lens from my mom for the weekend, which turned out to be a really fun camera to shoot with.
