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.

Grumpy Girl

My artist friend and co-worker Kristi Harmon has had an influence on me lately. My cartoon characters have always been pretty flat-looking. Kristi's making me want to add more texture to my art. Here's a sketch from the park, colored in Photoshop. 1.25 hours

My wife is a saint for letting me sit with her at the park while she watches the kids and I'm off in la-la land sketching people.
