Chinchilla, Meet Shake Weight®

I haven't done a lot of stopmotion since college but the year 2010 has proven to be a return to form for me in that regard.  From storyboarding to designing characters, props and sets to animating it all once it's ready they've been keeping me very very busy at work.  I won't say too much about what it all entails until I have a finished product to show but until then I'll post what I can when I have time.

To get things started, here's a chinchilla exercising with a shake weight. 

More to come!

Personable Animals

I drew these up for another work-related pitch.  Still waiting to see whether or not we got the job...

Rejected Concept Designs

I did these designs for a pitch package at work but we didn't get the job.  Ah well!  The client was a car-selling website and the idea was to tell the story of a buyer-seller relationship.  I designed the characters and backgrounds around the old UPA-style of animation since I had never really animated like that before and thought it'd be fun to do.  Maybe next time!

... and for those of you who aren't familiar with UPA (United Productions of America), here's one of their more famous cartoons "Gerald McBoing Boing" from 1951 that won them an Academy Award.

I apologize for no new posts recently, especially after I went on a ruthless spree of updates.  Lately I've been super busy filling in for Tara Reid's decrepit stomach.  New posts coming soon!
