Rest in Peace Chapstick

I wrote a song about my chapstick committing a suicide jump from my pocket (click here to listen).  I am in the process of creating an animation for the song.  Here is a very raw version of my CG chapstick character.

I have changed my idea for how I want to animate this Chapstick.  Going back to my roots and passion, I am using stop-motion animation.  Here is my puppet thus far.

I am a Guerrilla

I have concluded that this world needs a sprinkle of excitement.  So I have decided to create guerrilla art in the form of postcards.  I have been sketching on the front of postcards and sending them to random address around the country.  Each card is an original and has a a little note on the back that will make you smile.  Here are a few that I have sent out thus far.  Keep an eye on your mailbox friends and strangers!

Neon Light

SAIC provided a Neon Light making class.  I took it obviously.  Who could pass that up?!  It was one of the hardest classes I have ever taken, skill-wise that is.  The lab was no more than ten feet by six feet in size and was about three hundred degrees due to a constant streaming of flames.  In the end, I could not make any letters or shapes because those were extremely difficult.  So I made this.



It is a play on twigs.

Special Gift

What parent wouldn't want a song and animation written about how much their child loves them?

The Magic Boat...Part Deux

While working on The Magic Boat from July 2010 to June 2011, we were lucky enough to be featured in a documentary.  This featurette is based around the life of art students straight out of art school.

Here is the film, titled "Kids".
