Howdy Y'all
I'm a little behind on updates but I thought I'd share this good news:

Recently, the shows MVA for Nickelodeon (which I storyboarded on) and 
Turbo F.A.S.T.  (on which I currently direct) have been nominated for a
Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Children's Animated Programs.
(http://emmyonline.com/day_41st_nominations)
For Turbo, we have been able to push the action and comedy envelope to
eclipse any resemblance to the original film and become on of the most
viewed animated series on NetFlix. 

This year is shaping up to be one of the best years for the animation industry across all media outlets!

1001 Movies To Rock your MovieGoing Experience

I happened across this cool video on one of my favorite subjects: Movies.

I was surfing the Roger Ebert site to look up more interesting reviews of movies and stumbled on this page which is where the video was posted.

COSBY: Master Storyteller

We've all been there:
Have you ever succumbed to the slings, arrows, and flaming darts that you have flung at your creative self after engaging in some new endeavor or just continuing on the creative path?

Have you ever found yourself staring up at the stars from the bottom of the well of creative despair that you dug with your own thoughts?

Have you ever been inside a Turkish prison?

(That last one was a reference to this classic movie scene, in case you missed it.)

We've all been tempted to slide down the slippery slope of self generated creative immobilization which  can lead to artistic "angst".

When I find myself wavering, I recall a commencement speech from master storyteller, Bill Cosby.
His speech delivered to a graduating class at Carnegie Mellon University is preserved here on the internet for all to enjoy and be preserved. I've listened to it on numerous occasions and found Cosby's tale to be incredible motivation for any creative career.

Check it out! :)

LOBO Love

Some times you just gotta get a little LOBO.
Breaking out a quick sketch on a lunch break (and maybe then some).

Turbo F.A.S.T. Preview Clip

Howdy Yall,
Long time no blog!
Working on Turbo F.A.S.T. has kept me pretty busy for the past few months.
Today I had the chance to see some animation from a really cool episode I boarded for the tremendously talented director Juno Lee.
The animation turned out incredibly well due to the amazing talented animators at Titmouse Animation and the entire animation production team.

I'll try to get a vid of this soon. But for now zip over to the Entertainment news link and enjoy! :)

Update:
DreamWorks posted the clip for your YouTube viewing pleasure. Thanks DW!

JLA Saves the Day Animation

I saw this a few months ago in my local Target and I haven't forgotten how well done this animated commercial was using very line mileage heavy characters in a realistic style.

The commercial was boarded by industry veteran artists, including talented veteran comic book artist, Norm Bryfogle:

The animation was created by Golden Wolf Animation studios, based in London, UK.

It's rare these days to see commercial animation of this quality. So when you come across it, savor it. :)
