Jan 20 2009
Ok, it's now the year 2009. The future, since I last posted here. Happy to report that we're all wearing silver jumpsuits, and I've been working hard as a concept artist at Nexon Humanature studios. I'm unable to post any of the work I've done in the last year and a half. I will assure you that it's by far some of the best stuff I've ever done. I've had the pleasure of working with fantastic art direction, and been surrounded by great talent of all sorts. Never have I learned so much.

For now, I'll update with a smidgeon of art from my lifedrawing outside of work, and fun side projects.

July 15 2007
It's been a while since I updated the news page here, but I've been pretty busy with other pages, like our flickr and my new blog.
I decided to kill the links page here since it's so hard to maintain. I've converted to delicious, so you can check out my bookmark directory instead. Friend links here.

The big news around here, though, is that Rosenpig may be getting optioned. I can't say too much right now, but hopefully soon there'll be some big news to share soon. After that I'll hopefully get back to drawing a bit more. Compositing on Chaotic should wrap up sometime this fall, and then I'll be looking for work; design work. (If I'm not busy with Rosenpig that is.)

March 10 2006
Just retitled the Animation Section to Character. Now its all about character design - anything thats more environment related goes in Background. Lots of Concept work in both sections though.
I added a piece I did for the Brood Music video in Character. (Concept for the skeleton cowboy.)
Two new Rosenpig adventures have been created, and they're my favorites so far. Those will be up on the Rosenpig site as soon as their new owners have received them. Remember - 50 dollars CDN gets you a lovely hand made Guinea-pig and an original, unique, painted, adventure cartoon! These prices won't last, I can promise that much.

Been a while!
updates: Major reshuffling, tidied up... lot of crummy old art moved to Archive

Lots of news: Have been animating on Pucca - the show looks fantastic.
The "Second Son" Video for Elliott Brood has been played on The Wedge, Much Music's one and only time slot for actual music. This is great, and I've heard it's also been playing on Much More, possibly the Country one too.

A group of sheridan grads out here in vancouver, are starting the next video for Elliott Brood's "The Bridge." We've got a production blog up here: Brood's Bridge
I'll soon get a new resume up - with industry experience! Will be looking for work in vancouver this summer. For now - up to date contact info, up above.

Kapow!! Artwork from the upcoming Elliott Brood music video: "Second Son"
Look for it in BG, and Animation. Two life drawing that escaped posting earlier too.
My to do list for updates is still long. Hub page... Transit drawings... etc. I'm on the case though. I recently started working on the Studio B series PUCCA. (Vooz property - very cute) With moving to vancouver, being forced to learn flash and finding new stuff for my pad I have been very busy. I will try to update monthly again now that I've got my computron.

Sept 07 2005
All of the websites are being updated. I am still working hard on the Elliott Brood video with Danny Molek and Erica Pitt. As soon as that is done (sept. 23) expect:
More Transit drawings
More Life Drawings
Artwork from the Video
A website for Danny Molek and I about SHAPES
A website for Erica Pitt (3rd yr animator)
A thoughtfully laid out index page to navigate through the different websites here.
And for now? Slightly improved colour schemes here and in the archive... and a new ROSENPIG ADVENTURE!

July 29 2005
Portfolio - (actually here now)
I'm still in the process of recontructing the website, if you haven't noticed, has become a hub site for this, my Art home, Rosenpig, and an archive. The archive is a place to put old news posts, when there get to be too many, as well as ridiculously old artwork, etc.
Currently I am directing a Music Video for Elliott Brood and will be able to post some artwork from that after the video is released, hopefully the end of september.

July 10 2005
New section: Portfolio - my throwaway portfolio here.
8 New Life Drawings.
1 New observational - (sharbot lake cottage.) I'm planning on turning this url into a hub for the Art page seen here and the Rosenpig website, and throwing the old news posts into an archive, which will also feature my highschool and fundies artwork. (It's for myself that I keep it around, so I might as well tuck it away.) Rosenpig has been updated! Movies! Animation! Super fun!

May 28 2005
Big news for the site: A sister site devoted to Rosenpig has been created. Rosenpig's Webworld!!
In the coming days, expect many updates, including information on how to buy these adorable creatures. A slew of artwork from the final quarter of sheridan animation is coming as well as my film, which I have been touching up a bit lately. Many thanks to my musician - Andrew Pants of who, as you will soon hear did an excellent job with the audibles.

-Shrunk down the fundies thumbnails, did some major reorganizing, and finally got new lifedrawing and artwork up. Have yet to fill the portfolio, and still need to scan or photograph some work from the past 2 years.

Finally my website is up again after 2 years down. It still needs a severe updating however. (Which I'm on top of.) Good luck to all 3rd years on film ideas. I'm looking forward to them all.
