here's the first three pages of a first stab at the comic series me and alonso are working on. these are from my first failed pass and have pretty much have nothing to do with the story now. the film we're making together this year is also based on the comic book series. the story is still in the molding process. plus i'm still working on formating this thing right. which explains the massive amount of black on each page. more to come soon.

big explosions are good because it gets people's attention.

an animatic i made last month. i wanted to practice my perspective and i thought a chase scene would be a good idea.

power fist!

i'm really psyched about fallout 3. bethesda released a demo that featured the power fist which i thought was really cool. i'm really digging this post apocolypitic world idea. i can't wait till it comes out.

life is still going good.the work is challenging in different aspects every week and i'm learning a whole lot. here's a picture of me and audrey looking like dorks in front of the giant inflatable wall-e. wall-e is definitely my favorite pixar character so far. such a great movie.

starting from zero

i did this drawing in the lab today listening to podcasts while diana and derek were hammering away at their dreamwork story tests. there was a portion in one of the shows about what you would do if you were a hornet cacoon in a spider while i was drawing, but it's not about anything really. just passing time.

i'm driving up to pixar tommorow. the first page of a new chapter.

this is my 2008 story portfolio. it's got a dvd cover and the most high concept pitch i could come up with in my graphic novel class this year.

advanced karate over here!

bits and pieces from my failed attempt at making a 22 minute film in 48 hours about manly men beating the tar out of each other. also something about vikings from last year and a huge thing on this story about two guys trapped in the desert and bug people.

it's all so very good.

boards about bug people

you know what'd be really cool? if the words were all on this side.

this is all backwards

the last of the boards from the bug thing and the beginning of a now era of pink old man!

my SECOND post.

i did a whole bit on the background story of my characters from my second year film. my pink old man obsession knows no ends!

my first post!

my boards from the dim sum shop and excerpts from the second semester sketchbook.
