Electric Boy and Spark Pugs!

Spark pugsWork  in progressFinal productSeveral months ago after exploring Pinterest, I was inspired to create some cut paper illustrations. 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. The story behind the illustration is their son once said “Mom, I can’t sit still, I’m Electricty!” We all thought it was hilarious, and these pictures are the results.

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. I have barely scratched the surface of all of its intricate functions, but I’m excited to learn more about this process. I’ve seen several animated television shows using it, so ii can be a useful tool to have under my belt. Here is that quick test!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to post a little update about what I’ve been working on lately. Back in February I was approached by a local writer to illustrate a comic book called Introducing the Black Superheroes. The comic serves to illustrate and commemorate 10 black superheroes that were derived from American ex-slave folklore.

It seemed like a fun and interesting project to be attached to, so I accepted the offer. I had about a month to design the characters and illustrate the 24 pages of  the comic in order to meet the release date in April. It was a lot of fun and a really mind opening experience to create a comic from scratch. The comic was officially released on April 11th at One Spark in Jacksonville, Florida; and is currently available on Amazon.com.

Thanks for taking the time to check it out and I hope you enjoy it!
