Caricature



I'm really happy with how quickly I was able to get this one done. 2 hours including the pencil sketch, inks in Clip Paint Studio and color in Photoshop.

Toon Boom Blog Interview

Check it out! Toon Boom Animation featured me in a two-part article on their blog! Photoshop and Toon Boom Harmony are my two favorite software programs to use. It was such an honor to be featured on their blog! The second article is all about tips and tricks I've learned as an illustrator and animator. I hope someone finds it helpful.

Lifting a Box- Surprise Edition



Time to animate a person lifting a box and beyond! It took 70 hours from start to finish. I'd like to thank my friend Ed for giving me some good reference material and letting me cartoon him. I drew the character designs on paper, animated a few keyframes traditionally and then drew all the rest in Toon Boom Harmony. I hope it gives you a chuckle:)

4th of July Gunshot Fireworks Animation



Happy 4th of July! I attended a patriotic festival last weekend called Cries of Freedom where tons of people were dressed up in authentic colonial outfits, essentially living in what looked like a colonial village. People were making paper, cooking over fires, black-smithing, and telling tales of patriotism. It inspired me. This animation took about 13 hours using Toon Boom Harmony and Photoshop.

Walk Cycle Pencil Test and Clean-up Animation





This year, I'm focusing on how to do traditional 2D animation. I took an awesome online course from Tony White. This was the first walk cycle I've ever animated traditionally. Follow me on Instagram to stay up-to-date with my animation efforts.

Spinning my Kids



Sometimes after work, I don't have the energy to play tag with my kids or the mental capacity to play with Barbies, so my favorite default activity is to make a movie with them instead.
