2013: A Visual Approximation

UGH.  What a year.  2013 was back-to-back busy.  I've got two exciting projects waiting for release in some shape or form which have been hard not to spoil too much.
The first is a stop-motion music video for Locksley which I finished almost a year ago.  It has been kept from release for various reasons which should be resolving themselves sooner than later.  It's a piece I'm very proud of and hope to share with you soon!  It was done on the cheap with the help of some friends and is just waiting for some eyeballs to see it.
My other project from last year was animating & designing for the feature film Lucky Stiff which is currently somewhere between done and being released... that's about all I know.  It was a great project to be a part of and I got to work along side the excellent Emily Hubley who taught me a lot about focusing what I need to communicate visually.  Don't worry!  I still snuck a nipple in there somewhere.

Background for Last Days of Coney Island by Ralph Bakshi

Currently I'm working as an animator on Ralph Bakshi's Last Days of Coney Island.  To me it's what my years of animating have been building towards and it's been a crazy & rewarding experience so far.  It's all paper & pencil & X-sheets and my ten-year-old self couldn't be happier, minus the math.  Updates to follow in some capacity!  At the very least a drawing or two...
