Last year I was contacted by a company called Image Metrics to concept the heads of various characters. Their company deals in facial recognition, and can use a webcam to animate characters in real-time! Here are a few of the many characters I designed for them.
I have just been informed that a children's book I worked on back in 2008 is currently being turned into an animated film! I will update you as soon as I receive some images.
Though I have had a couple blogs over the years, in the interest of simplifying and keeping all things in one place, this is where all future artwork and updates will be posted. To view my old blog click here.
To start things off, here are a few images I created at the Animation Collaborative. I had the pleasure of taking Advanced Character Design with the amazingly talented Chris Sasaki. If you are interested in animated film, I highly recommend this school!
Growing up, I was inspired by the Sunday Comics. As a child, I remember cutting Calvin and Hobbes strips out of the newspaper and putting them into a photo album!
