Color Comp

I've been invited to participate in a group show at Gallery 1988 in Santa Monica opening on June 19th. Here's a color comp for the painting I'm working on right now. It's a redo of a painting I did last year that I recently realized wasn't as strong as I had originally thought.

Over the next couple of months I'll be posting drawings and color comps for the show's work. Stay tuned.

Okay, so Round 1 of our "friendly" animation competiton is officially finished! I wasn't able to fully complete the last scene of my submission, but I learned a lot getting back into Flash and am ready for the next round!

Amazing Screw On Head DVD! Check me out!

Hey! Check it out! I am on the special features of a dvd! Kinda cool, I wish I would have had better things to say other than "Mike Mignola is cool"... but they didnt give me much time to prep.

The studio I work at, Titmouse Inc, directed and boarded the show... I was a huge fan of the comic, and I kept bugging my boss to let me work on it in any capacity... At first he only let me be the in-house "Mignola expert". He would ask things like "Does this look like something Mignola would do?" and I would answer... I was the one to help approve the image above, used for posters and the dvd cover (I know its a small task, but I am pretty proud that they gave me a small role on the show)... then later they let me do some drawings for the intro... Persistance pays off, sometimes. I got on the dvd featurette, but not in the show credits... oh well.
