this little parasite was fun to create. i put the title in quotes because its design is roughly based on a flea, but it really looks more like a flea/tick/alien mix. it was a lot of fun and a great learning process.

here's my first finished piece of work in 3d computer graphics. the assignment was to design a teapot, teacups, and environment, build it, texture it, light it, and compose a scene. it was a lot of fun work to do. click the picture for larger view.

large mammals

usually i dont give up in figure drawing when i'm not in the groove, but yesterday i did when someone mentioned sumo wrestlers. i spent the rest of class drawing these two fellows, much to my enjoyment.

jimbo the rodeo clown

the monkey/rodeo panel above was for my storyboarding class. original layouts of the composition had the monkey in the ring behind the action, and the caption was about how the cowboy wishes he had realized earlier that the rodeo clown was a monkey. then i asked myself why a monkey couldn't be trained to be a rodeo clown,images of monkeys gleaning tasty bugs from eachothers hair came to mind, and the result was this comic. i thought i was pretty clever for using the word 'behemoth' in the caption since it describes both the object and intensity of his fantasy, but in retrospect (and with some criticism from the teacher) i realize that it makes the whole thing too wordy. not too clever after all.

its a boy

a blog was born. to me.
being unfamiliar with blogging protocol or practice, this might be an ugly child for a while.
my intention is to show art here, mostly art specific to the animation program im in, to keep family and friends up to date on what i'm working on, and to collaborate with my fellow artists.
