So it's been a very busy and productive half year since graduation.

I know I've said in my past few posts that I would be getting up more development work from my short but, clearly, this has yet to take place. INSTEAD here's a quick update as to what I've been up to lately:
- After my previous gig doing storyboards for a web animation studio from May thru November, I took a week vacation w/ relatives in Puerto Vallarta - good times, hardly any drawing getting done though X-O
- Immediately after the vacation I'm back in LA starting my brand new job I've been at since; development and storyboarding for a major series to broadcast on Cartoon Network.

I've never been a part of development before so I've had to really flex my creative muscles more than ever before (HEADACHES!...sigh, I'm good). Also, storyboarding for a traditional animation series is a serious far cry from web animation so this has presented even more challenges. All the while I've been commissioned to create a piece of animation for a music festival in early January, which I look forward to seeing once it's finished of course. All in all it's been a gloriously and PROUDLY stressful past month hopefully leading to major improvements on my current skillz (and maybe a litttttle break after the new year?).

By mid january, I'll hopefully have gotten my groove back and gotten back to my OWN sheeit for once! (AAHH ;))

What's up everybody! It's Halloween & I'm super full still from our midday potluck at work. It's been a long time since I last updated and I don't wanna leave this blog dusty so I'm just here to say that a new update will be coming soon. Whether it relates to my short, or anything else I won't say. Until then everyone needs to listen to this shit:


See ya'll again in a few

Stayed up a little later than usual last night working on some concept art for my upcoming short. I did several drawings and just cleaned up my favorites.
It's about a boy & a girl.

By the recommendation of a friend, as a means to relieve stress, I was asked to color in a page of a coloring book (one of hers). After some resistance (not too much) I gave in and put this one out, and here it is just for fun. After finishing it I felt much better, to my surprise! Embrace your childhood! Get a coloring book!

This is like meeting Spongebob down a dark alley...

Back in August(see below) I posted a drawing I did for my GF's sister's birthday. Well this time it's her mom's bday and I did another quick one. This is just a quick cartoony sketch of my gf and her sister, something to make a mother proud!

Or just somethin to post :-D

Hey everybody, few & farbetween audience who checks my blog, well check this! UPDATE:
So my GF's little sister had her 17th birthday and I thought I'll be a good friend and make her a digital painting! She loves to cook & is in fact very good at it, so I came up with this gift for her (which she apparently really likes, which is good):

"Sarah's Kitchen" (nonstop credit to Nate Wragg for the inspiration for this piece)

As for what I'm doing now, my current storyboarding job continues to takes its toll. I've learned a tremendous amount about boarding as well as Flash in the past few months however, which has kept me very focused on my art as of late. Currently I'm working on a concept for a mural, designing my upcomign website, and I've begun writing the script for the animated short that I WILL make, I promise. Don't miss out on this! Goodnight everybody!

So I'm back in Bakersfield for the weekend seeing family for Alma's 20th Birthday when my older sister Jennie asks me to draw her a picture of a robot. She's a recent graduate from SJSU's Mechanical Engineering program so robots are definitely her favorite. I sketched this up in just a few minutes so hope you all like it as much as she has!:

Last night I saw a great concert with my lady at the Hollywood Bowl: John Mayer featuring Ben Folds, and Roco Deluca & The Burden. Our seats were pretty good, the entire show rocked, but I was, in a difficult to determine way, extremely entertained by Mr. Folds in particular. I thought of this sketch in the car on my way home, inspired in particular by expressive sketches of Nate Wragg. Click it!

These are some sketches of bands that inspire me. These were done during some downtime at my internship at MLG last fall.
