Inktober - The Magik INK

Meet Arthur.
He's the hero of my sketches for the month. Today, he steals the sacred magic ink and quickly escapes the clutches of the ink people... what will happen next!??

The artists at Blue Sky are taking this month to sketch and fine tune their drawing/inking chops by participating in the widely known "Inktober Initiative". I thought it was a fantastic idea since I personally have been wanting to draw more lately. Since Inktober suggested ideas/topics for each day, I thought it would be a good idea to tell a story based on those ideas. So here's my attempt at Inktober and telling a story that progresses from day to day.

Let's have fun!

Peanuts Trailer Review

Check out a review of the trailer from a perspective of a critic who admittingly isn't a fan of Peanuts but is really looking forward to this movie. I like her observation regarding the message behind the trailer addressing self-worth and bullying, as well as appreciating the modern style while still being faithful to the Schulz look.

I'm excited to have worked on this movie and can't wait for the world to see it!
The review starts at the 2:50 mark.

Peanuts Teaser

I am proud to be working on such a charming film with so much history and so far most people seem to be responding pretty well to the stylistic choices. It's still early in production but it's definitely been a fun project to work on.

The first FULL Rio 2 trailer is out! I have a few shots in there too. I animated the shot in the beginning with the guys playing the ukulele and drums. I also animated the Luiz (the bulldog) shots near the end of the trailer. They actually cut it up so it's shorter and in pieces for the trailer. And I animated a quick shot at the end with everyone jumping up and cheering. This movie has been fun to animate on. Can't wait to see how people respond to it!

Currently on RIO 2

After working at BlueSky for the past 2 years, I am really enjoying it as if it were still day 1 when I had just started on Ice Age 4.  It's such a great studio with an awesome atmosphere and I'm happy to be here with all these crazy peeps.

I'm also excited to currently be animating on Rio 2. Check out the first teaser that recently came out animated by a bunch of my cool friends... Drew, Trevor, Andrew, Munn, Lluis... aaand not sure who else was involved, but have a look for some animation goodness.

Don't trip... it's just a ball!


Quick rough blocking test I did for fun tonight with an old AM rig I had from class 2. While animating at work I was wondering what the hell would I be doing if I wasn't animating?? Man, I'd be wanting to animate for a living. You gotta' do what you love 'cause doing something besides that isn't worth it.

Keep the dream alive.
