I forgot about this little guy, too!  It was an owl design I made several years ago - and my friend, Jenna Bors Jaillet, did an amazing job turning it into a 3D model.   I've been wanting to animate it ever since...


I just dug up these old paper cutouts that I had made in school (for my very first animation waaaaay back in the day)...thinking about making a hanging mobile out of them.  There were a dozen, or so, different characters... and I turned a couple of my favorites into these animated GIF's...


I don't usually get storyboard assignments for live-action shoots, so this was a really fun opportunity to do so (for American Greetings)...

Here is a link to the final video:  Birthday Video
It's somewhat interactive, so you have to click on a few things before previewing...


a quick doodle to capture a rare moment:  our two crazy dogs sleeping peacefully next to one another...


Anniversary Greeting

Some stills and production art from an animated piece that I just finished for Am. Greetings.  Click here to see the video:  Bike For Two

Originally, the characters were going to be raccoons...



I'm supposed to be working...  but sometimes my mind gets distracted from the task at hand.  In this case, DEVO ("Uglatto") came up in my itunes... so I found myself making a devo-doodle (devoodle?).   Now... back to work!


Belated Greeting

A super short turnaround belated birthday greeting done in a "story-book" style...

A rejected character design and deleted scene from a storyboard... 



We just finished this commercial for NIPSCO (Northern Indiana Public Service Co.) with producer Ross Woods at Scofield Editorial.  It was a really fun project with a great message about things you "shouldn't do blind"...  to raise awareness about calling NIPSCO's 881 number before you go off digging in your yard.

...some samples from a live-action composite hybrid type piece that I just finished working on for Am. Greetings.  It was really fun, since I got to design and build the sets - as well as doing the compositing.  I'll post more details (and a link to the video) once the piece goes live.


...waiting for Soyeon to come home!
