Sonic fails miserably at rescuing a cat from a tree

I did some compositing on this Sonic commercial. I took care of the wide shot where Knuckles pulls the tree out of the ground. That shot was a lot of fun.
I worked on the final shot with Sonic holding the cat. That shot was BRUTAL. It's one of those times when you just want to lay down and not get up for a long time. The cat looked terrible. We went a week overdue trying to get the cat somewhat presentable. If I learned anything from this project it's that I have the patience of a coma patient, that is screaming inside their own mind.
In the end, Sonic fans like the commercial and I can't ask for any more than that.

*Update on the 3rd stop-motion short*
It's finished! The animation by Claude (same animator that did Sonic above) looks amazing. The production quality and story is the best of the 3 shorts. It is the work I'm most proud of.

Buuuuutttttttttttttt........due to circumstances out of my control, it will probably never be shown. Big sad face =(

Zoo Day Saturday

I went to the LA Zoo. Turned out to be a real good day for the zoo too. This huge anteater was frolicking in the dirt. They may look silly and shaggy but anteaters are actually very dangerous. During his dirt dance, a fallen tree was in his way and he swiped it with one huge claw sending the tree bounding away. Cute and deadly -  the worst kind of cute.

I also got in a serious staring contest with a giraffe. I didn't have any beef walking up to the giraffe enclosement but when my presence was made, one giraffe had a major issue with my face. Look, I get it - I've seen a mirror - but when I pulled my camera out to take a picture of the stink eye, she broke contact and shuffled away. That's right, even ornery giraffe's are afraid of going on youtube.

Words can be tough

Or I'm just really stupid. Sometimes I can't believe the words I hear from my mouth.

Blogging Drunk

So I'm drunk. What better time to update my blog??
Blugging drunk is actually pretty easy. If I was sober I'd think "no one would want to see these drawings, self." Hahahahaha. Here we go!

Any of these lined paper pads are while I'm drawing at work. Usually during meetings or while my computer is busy being an idiot or while I'm staring at someone. For this one, it's a bear with a looooong tongue.

I watch Claude while he animates small toys.

Claude had an ear ache this day. I drew a diagram of a netti pot. It's a wonderful, addictive device that pours water through your nose and makes all your sinus pains go away. But be careful! Tap water through the nose has lead to brain eating bacteria taking a trip to your big thinker. Death ensues!! Haha. Seriously, boil your water beforehand and then let it cool.

This is one of my favorite drawings of Claude. It captures the moment when I sing to him and he pretends not to hear me.

Some LBX Emperor anime character that someone likes.


Here's Leon really clicking fast on his mouse. The weirdest thing is there was nothing on his screen, oh well!

Computers are real dumb and take forever to do things - like render! Normally while my computer is sitting there I draw my grotesque hands.

An ok picture of Richard during a meeting. A terrible drawing of Chris. Chris you don't look like this drawing and I hope you never see it.

See those "V" shape drawings in the center of the page? They're boobs.

Eh I don't know why this one is here.

That Japanese roof thing is at the huntington gardens. A beautiful place to sit around and pretend you live in a land of beautiful plants and scenery.

A bunch of scribbles and a naked girl. Her boob is way to high up in her armpit.

Some tablet designs. The idea I was thinking was a sleek, rugged tablet for the business man that would replace a briefcase. But who carries briefcases anymore? Dumb idea.
The gem on this page is the quote in the top right corner "computers will understand whales." HAhHAHA. I don't know what I was smoking when I wrote that! Computers are stupid.

A mans face without the fleshy parts.

Ugh. I started drawing this at 3AM while watching Pain and Gain. Hence the large dwyane the rock Johnson face in the center. I actually tried gluing paper obver the face so I could draw more skulls. The whole time I was saying "this isn't going to work." Whelp...

Why did I put this one on here?


That's it buddies!!! Thanks for checking out my drunken blog! I really appreciate anyone spending a few seconds of their life to look at these pictures I try to make. I wish I could make them better or inspire you to make something better. Thanks buddy!

Greatest Rap Battles of Villany

Here's a fun project I composited for my day job. I was given an edit of this rap battle with all the characters on green screen. I took out the green screen and dropped in backgrounds that the illustration department made. Then I looked in a big, beautiful stock footage library of smoke, blood, rubble, fire, blood, explosions, blood and some blood. Then I added it together, changed the colors around and made it look like the characters weren't dancing and singing on a green screen stage.

It was a real quick deadline but super fun. My favorite part is when Frank Underwood pushed Joeffery in front of the subway. At first I added so much blood that it shot out onto the camera and big gorey chunks were stuck to the screen. The director, Noah (real talented guy, wrote the whole thing too) and the producer walked over to watch the shot. Simultaneously the producer said "disgusting..." and Noah said "perfect..." It was a good day! Unfortunately for the clients sake we had to dial back the gore, hahahaha.
