I’ve been meaning to post these for a while. Some gifs of my favorite scenes that I animated for the Cloudy 2 shorts. One from each short …Earl Scouts. ..Attack of the 50ft Gummi… Steve’s First Bath… and Super Manny. I’m pretty sure the shorts can be found online, but they’re also a bonus feature on the DVD and Blu-ray. The Character Layouts on these scenes were a combined effort between myself and Angelo Vilar. I animated them. Backgrounds were done by Ivan Aguirre and Arthur Loftis. Character Designs were a joint effort by David Feiss and Joey Chou. Compositing by Tony Christopherson.

I recently designed and did some animation for the premiere episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee featuring Louis CK. You can check out the link above to see the episode. It was a complete pleasure to work under these two comedic icons. Jerry wanted it to be reminiscent of those “Sein-imation” shorts from the Seinfeld DVDs but I tried to add a bit of my own sensibilities to it. Some of my design exploration is pictured above.

Here's the second Cloudy 2 short I had the pleasure of working on.
Once again I did a bunch of character layout and animation for it.
This was actually the last one we worked on. Throughout the entire production of these shorts I couldn't wait to get my hands on Earl. I did a lot of the stuff in the beginning and at the very end of him screaming and flipping around. A really fun character to animate. At first I was bummed when I heard Terry Crews took over for Mr. T. But after working with his performance, I have to say that Terry Cruise ended up doing a much better job with the character. There's nothing better than getting some fun, energetic voice acting to animate with.

Check out this short I worked on for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2.
It's the first in a series of 4 shorts that I did some character layout and animation for.
I had the pleasure of working on these with a ton of talented people. Keep your eyes open for the rest. They'll also be on the DVD / Blu Ray release of the movie.

I don't know why I never posted this, but here's a metlife commercial we worked on at 6PH for the 2012 Superbowl. It was a pretty quick project but a fun opportunity to animate some iconic characters. Who better to buy life insurance from than cartoon characters....anvil coverage is extra though.....also I'm surprised Fat Albert was able to get coverage.

I was cleaning off my desktop and I found some animation from an unfinished 24 hour film Cheyenne and I attempted a little over a year ago.
It was a 1 minute film about two "gentlemen" hot tubbers.
It was definitely a little ambitious for a 24 hour film, but we still got a lot of really fun and expressive drawings and animation out of it. It also gave us a chance to collaborate and experiment.
At the end of the day, I guess that's the point...whether it was completed or not. *hangs head in shame*
I figured it was about time to post some of the work we did together.
Chey and I designed the characters together. "Snoots" is the orange guy and "Sleaze" is the green dude.
I feel like they're a great balance of our styles. I can definitely see elements of us both in each character.
I boarded it, Cheyenne painted the beautiful BGs,
and we both did character layout and animation.
I can't take any credit for the image above. Cheyenne did this hilarious shot.
Always love working with her.
There was no dialogue in the film. It was all set to this Jackie Davis song.
