Jam Sandwich!

Sooo, It's been a while since I posted. I'm sorry. I probably say that a lot. I've just been really busy with work. I'm back at Big Bad Boo working on a show called 1001 Nights. Lots and lots of long hours and weekends being destroyed...

On the side, when I do get some free time, I am working on 2 animated shorts. One is what I have been posting in the past (The Family Mart and the interior layout). I am still working on layouts for that short. They take time because I'm working on a small graphire3 tablet that frustrates me and makes me not so motivated to work on layouts. I dream of  one day owning a cintiq and working on these layouts to the best of my ability.

The second animation short I am working on is going to be a fun flash style cut out short. I would eventually like to make a short once a month and put it on youtube and vimeo. I drew up some characters and it's going to be about these funny little mobsters during the prohibition in the 1920s. It's going to be really stylized and snappy animation. I will be collaborating with some my 2 friends I am working with at Big Bad Boo. They also have ideas of their own. We will hopefully be alternating on what short to work on together each month. I'm excited about this because this will be our "own" stuff and not some company's we are working for.

I'll post up some of the character builds soon for the mobster short, but in the mean time here is a chick eating a jam sandwich.

April Showers

I just finished up working at Bardel Entertainment on a show called Bob's Burgers. I am looking for new work and I'll hopefully find something soon, because I gotta pay my rent. ;P While I look for work I am also working on my background for my animated short. I'm about half way done colouring the Family Mart store. I really can't wait till this BG is done! I want to do more colourful BGs rather than technical ones right now. This one has been pretty technical and I am looking forward to just painting and not really thinking to hard. In the mean time I put together some WWII soldier portraits I sketched.

More to come soon!

Second Scene

I finally finished drawing the second scene. It took me forever to figure out and remember what and where all the stuff is usually found and located in a Family Mart. Thanks to my lovely wife, Aram, I was able to get lots of reference photos for products and things inside of the store.

Next step is colouring it. I have a feeling this is going to take a while too. But once this layout is finished the rest will go much more quickly.

Business Cards

I made this business card for my sister. It was a Christmas gift for her. She is an amazing makeup and special effects artist!

In other news, I finished working as a graphic artist and I'm now looking for new work.
