Vincent Pryce dialogue animation



My first bit of hand drawn for this year; if I have time after getting some other pieces done I'll add in a phone cord.

Any feedback wouldn't go amiss...

The Lip Gloss Gang


Supporting characters in the Bubble Hub. I needed neighborhood bullies, but I decided right away they needed to be girls; it's definitely not as funny if the your leads are girls and their always been physically threatened by boys, and it's DEFINITELY funny if the lead boys are being terrorized by girls. The "Lip Gloss Gang" are kind of a combination of some coworkers, tomboys, emos, gritty cousins and school bullies I've known (that's right, I've been picked on by girls before... sigh). They are an unstoppable force of nature that everyone in downtown fears: even the biker gangs turn of their engines in their presense. Careful, they'll take your money and give you a gaudy makeover...


This is a character simply named "Grump" I designed for my current 2D excercise. Yes, he's a bit formulaic, but I wanted somthing SUPER easy to animate for this time around, since I've gotta get my confidence back after not animating in this medium for a while....

Bubble Hub Cast



Been too busy to get much posted: Just quit a contract early to work on my demo reel animation for Disney.


Did manage to work on my Bubble Hub Pitch over the holidays. Thought I should design all the main characters to go with the pitch.


Their dad was the toughest character to design by far: Because the twins are a mix of two very different asian ethnicities, they can be just really broad asian. The parents I wanted to be a bit more specific. Their dad's super Hanna Barbera....


A quick card I made for a friend. Their both coworkers on my last job I got kinda attached to: She was a good sport about it...
