Some good friends of mine decided to move to Texas, so I decided to make a little cutout illustration of their son and my dog to give them as a going away gift.

Play Time! Using deformers in Toon Boom Harmony

In-between teaching classes the past couple of days, I’ve been messing around with the deformers in toon boom harmony. It is a really cool process once you get the hang of it.

JUICED! 2013

Hey all–

It has been just about 24 hours since I worked with my buddy Ajay (The Devil’s Garage) on an animation for JUICED! JUICED! is a 24 hr animation competition held in collaboration with the Citrus Cel Animation Film Festival.

It was quite a fun, interesting, and extremely draining challenge.

Here are the characters I designed for the project, and a few of the layout I created as well.
