A few weeks ago I was able to attend the official graduation for AnimationMentor in Berkeley, CA. What an amazing ride these past two years have been. The people I have met and the experience I have gained has exceeded my wildest expectations. I’m sad for it to end, but I’ll look back on the whole experience with fond memories.
Thanks Bobby, Shawn, and Carlos for everything.
What a week! It’s amazing how exhausting it can be to have a booth, yet it’s extremely rewarding. Thank You to everyone who stopped by and said hello. The best part about Comic con is meeting so many amazing artists and catching up with old friends.
Although I was in my booth most of the time, I did manage to sneak out here and there to purchase a few books I just had to have. After recoverying from the weekend, I’m already planning for next year!
It’s been a while since my last post, but I’ve got some cool stuff coming up. My film is animated and I’m just putting the final touches on the lighting and I’ll start rendering soon. I’ve also realized that Comic-con is right around the corner! I’ll be sharing a booth with some friends who will also be selling their artwork and books. I’m planning on bringing EYECANDY along with original art and prints. I can’t wait! One of my favorite times of the year, where I can geek out at all the great art and pop culture goodies. We’ll be at booth 5363. See you there!
As an animator I’m always trying to get away from the regular “Vanilla Walk” when animating a specific character. Sometimes you come up with something perfect for your character, other times it comes off as a little cliche. Here are a couple kids who came up with some fun walks. I don’t think you have to be an animator to love these.
For those of you who didn’t see me last year, I’ll be returning to the San Diego ComicCon, selling copies of my sketchbook, as well as some prints and possibly some original art. Eyecandy is 48 pages, perfect bound with color cover and black and white inside pages.
It’s an amazing feeling when you open up that first box and see those nice crisp copies of your first book. The books look great, and I couldn’t be happier with the quality printing and binding job World Trade Printing Center provided
I’ll post more info as we get closer to July.
See you there!
