Good Vibes Stoner Gag



This was probably my favorite contribution to Good Vibes. At the end of production, show creator, Brad Ableson, approached a few of us to do some interchangeable "stoner gags" for the intro of the show. It was extremely flattering and I had way too much fun with this thing. We were given total freedom to design, layout, and animate the entire thing ourselves as well as come up with the gag itself which was pretty refreshing. The ideas ranged from Mondo and Woodie as 8-bit characters...to Mondo and Woodie as fish...to Mondo and Woodie drawn in the style of Ralph Steadman.
I'm pretty sure there were 8 total and they all turned out fantastic. It was great to be allowed to run free with these. Above is my stoner gag done in an old timey rubber hose style.

Good Vibes: Breast Friends



Here's a gif of a walk cycle I animated in tonights episode of Good Vibes. The character layout was done by Mike Nassar.

Some people save lives for a living...Others make technological advances to better mankind...Some teach and shape the minds of the future...Me? I make cartoon tits bounce.

I've posted a lot more about Good Vibes on my Tumblr, but you can catch it on MTV at 10:30pm on Thursdays. I loved working on the show. We boarded, animated, and edited the entire season at Six Point Harness. I'm proud to be a part of a prime time series that's done entirely here in North America, employing a ton of local talent...(Take that Korea) A lot of fantastic artists we're a part of the show and it was a pleasure to work with them. I encourage you to check out the series. It's pretty raunchy...but it's backed up with a lot of heart.

Happy Thanks-gif-ing





I've been making a lot of gifs lately. Really fun to play around with. It's a good way to get some personal animation done on the side without having to commit too much of your time. The top is a tribute to one of my favourite moments from Seinfeld and the bottom is a tribute to Always Sunny.

Beetle-Drink


"We've come for your daughter, Chuck"

One of my favorite movies. The version I used to watch as a kid was just a VHS copy recorded off of CityTV...I still remember the commanding voice of Mark Dailey welcoming me back to the movie after the commercials....lots of hamburger helper commercials....haha but anyways, it wasn't until years later that I saw the unedited version with Beetlejuice's "Nice Fuckin' Model" line followed by the horn honking junk squeeze....It was on that day that my innocence was shattered forever. haha.

The always inspiring and talented Cheyenne did this collab with me...I started by doing Beetlejuice and she finished it off with Lydia and the BG elements. I love the scene it creates. Right on time for halloween too.

GALAXY CIGARETTES


Conquering the universe can be tough on your nerves.
Thats why more Cosmonauts smoke Galaxy Cigarettes than any other brand.
Galaxy Cigarettes: In space, no one can hear you inhale.

Douche Knights


A new computer and a new cintiq means I'll be able to give this blog some attention again.
While I was sifting through my portable hard drive, I came across these designs I did for a project a long while back. They were never used, but I had a lot of fun doing them.
Have at you, Bro.

Pure. West.


"Bats frighten me. It's time my enemies share my dread."

You feelin that dread yet?
Didn't think so.
The Adam West Batman may as well have worn a fanny pack as a utility belt.
...but man, could he dance.
