I Hate Winter and Winter Hates Me


Cold weather always seems to slow me down. Somewhere deep in my brain a switch is set on "primordial" because, like clockwork, once the harvest season rolls around and snow falls I find myself assessing nooks and enclosures for hibernation potential. On the plus side I can walk around with a blanket toga without receiving questioning looks. (Either that or my roommates are as strange as I am)

Beware!

Been working on a storyboard portfolio and re-editing my other one, which involved scrapping a lot of stuff I was proud of at some point. (Which I guess makes me happy).


Not that I'm sad now, but I sure was when I drew this.


This came about when I actually listened to what I say when I'm talking to myself.


Sketch doodle...needs more ACTION!

I Took a Very Productive Nap Today...


I moved 2 months ago and have spent the whole time settling; which for me isn't unpacking but finding the best place to sleep on my bed that doesn't make me feel paranoid in my new room.






Trying to keep busy in order to stay sane, but it's a killer on those days when nothing looks quite right... seems like I've been having a lot of those lately.

COMICS! IT'S ABOUT TIME!

I've been compiling journal comics for some time now, just so I can update with as safe amount of backlog. Problem is now those comics have become outdated! I think what I'm going to do is post the most recent ones and create an archive of the oldies that have never been seen.

Well, I Graduated College...

I guess updates are inevitable.

My Guilt Just Grows and Grows...

I got an internship at Midway Games (how the heck did that happen?!) and while my productivity level is about the same, scanning and posting stuff has only gotten harder. On the plus side, my current sketchbook, Barnabus, is almost filled! I'm giving it until the end of the month, at the latest May 18th, which is the day I finally flippin' graduate!!!


I can't seem to find the white background version of this one.


These are just to prove I've been doing junk and not just laying in bed, which is really what I wish I was doing.

I'm Terrible at This...

Geez, I need to give myself blog deadlines or something. It's one thing to be unproductive (which I'm not, I SWEAR!), but I just never bother showing my stuff. Maybe it's an innate fear of failure. Or pickiness. Or I just end up reading or drawing instead of posting....yeah, I think that's it.



I doodled this in math class. African? Japanese? Afro-Japanese? Who knows what's influencing me.
One thing's for sure: Parachute pants.





This started with the lead monster being doodled at the Field Museum (inspired by an Eryops, I think), and eventually lead to this. I'm now developing them in an assignment for my Producing class.

In recent news, I'm slowly learning after effects. Sometimes I just wish I could get along with a pencil and some animation paper, but we are living in the 21st century. Plus I like photoshop too much to give up on technology. I've also got a new storyboarding and concept development gig on top of a comic that's still in the development stage. Thank god storyboarding for APS class is done. I mostly just do poses and animation checking in that class now, and a keys and animation here and there.

Oh, and I redid my final for Alternative Strategies in Animation. I'm still editing it, but....

This is a clip of the original charcoal portion. Called "WakeUp!", it's a mixed media piece. I reshot the opening portion using cutouts on a multiplane rather than a flat paper puppet with joints (too rigid), and added a chalk portion. The whole thing is timed to the beat of the song "Wake Up and Smell the Millennium" by Nobody. I'd post it, but don't have the rights to the song. I'll get around to it. It's a very upbeat song.
