East Side Culture Crawl Paintings!!

These were my side projects over the last two months. Fun times as I had never made anything on a canvas for display before. I'm looking forward to my upcoming move to Australia, and continuing to paint. I intend to take what I learned making these into bigger pieces that will hopefully be a lot more visually clear. Good times!

Rick Hansen Commercial

Here's a live action board I did last year, (July 2011).  It involved Rick Hansen.
Super last minute,  I did it in a couple hours one night while in Calgary. Photoshop!

VFX/ Live Action Commercial Storyboard

Here is a live action / vfx integration commercial storyboard I did last minute for a client. About 8 hrs over a couple days.  Live action always asks for different things in their boards than in animation,  less posing, but it was a fun idea so I made it a bit animation-ey.  The designs (phallic sea monster) were done by some one else.   I didn't post the dialogue either, but basically, when the coloured bugs land on the characters, they get to grant a wish. Just like real life.  Good times!!

2008 Stop Motion Short made in 50 hrs?

Oh my gyad, forgot about this.  This was done with my friends for the Trick 17 Stop Motion competition in 2008!! Me and my team got 50 hrs, a direction, music and a medium to make a stop motion film. Looking back this was a great learning experience. Please forgive the lame (AWESOME!!) sense of humor in it. It was sponsored by Redbull, (obviously). Oh good times.

The Explorasaurs

Here is a short "thing" I made in my spare time last July (2011). It was made at Quickdraw Animation Society in Calgary. Hand drawn in Flash, a friend of mine was kind enough to throw some music on, thanks Matt!

UBC EOS Illustrations

Last November, I did some preliminary exploration for a really cool professor in the Earth and Ocean Sciences Program at UBC. They didn't turn into anything after this but it was a fun little gig and I got to learn a lot about geological processes and ecology theory which was totally rad!!!

Some random sketches from the pile!

Back from the States!

Well..... I recently got back from an amazing trip to the south of the USA. New Orleans and Austin TX. It was amazing to say the least. Anyhoo, feeling really inspired artistically, the idea of painting has caught me and hopefully I can get going soon on some pieces. Been drawing and planning some weird images that would look good on a large scale I think. Here's a couple doodles for fun.

Here's a 30sec spot I did at Barbershop Films here in Vancouver. It was hand drawn in Flash by myself and the compositing wizard took it from there. Good times!
