A Freaky New Project

After nearly six months on Incredible Hulk, I am moving to a new project and staying with Rhythm and Hues. The new one is called Cirque Du Freak. I chose it because it looks interesting. It should be a fun movie to work on. So far its been great.

Artistic Capitalism

I've never been a big fan of commercials. Our culture is saturated with them. However,the Zune arts campaign rides the thin line between art and advertising in a really interesting way. By commissioning different and unique films loosely related to music and the Zune itself, Microsoft has allowed some cool little spots to be created. Since it ultimately fosters creativity and animation, I decided to post a couple of my favorite ones.

Monthly Find: April

Its coming up on the end of April already, hard to believe. So here is my monthly music discovery. I owe this one to my good friend Marie all the way out in NYC. Everybody Else is from LA and was chosen as the Alternative Press's "100 bands to know in 2007". They have a sound that reminds me of weezer in a good way. So check em out on Purevolume. If you have a suggestion for the monthly find, email me about it!

New Wall-E Featurette

Andrew Stanton talks about the character he has created for the latest Pixar film due out this summer. This reminds me of an article that I've read and re-read numerous times on the awn website about Pixar's story process. If you haven't read it yet and you are interested in story development, definitely take a look at it here.

Environment Concept art

Here is the first in a series of concept work for Band Together, my short animated film. The story takes place in a jungle gripped by a deep freeze. I have a few more drawings done that I ned to paint up in photoshop, and I will have more time when Hulk finishes next week, so expect to see more soon.
