a mutant

I haven't been drawing much lately.  But here's a mutant that I just drew tonight.  This is the mutant that I tend to draw when I can't think of anything else to draw.  I think he's a close cousin of one of the "Make Your Own Name" monster cards from the 60's, by Norm Saunders.  I've animated him before in little snippets.


Dark Minions pictures

Unfortunately, Amazon Studios did not pick up the "Dark Minions" series.  I animated on the pilot at Shadow Machine, it's mostly an animatic with about 7 minutes of finished animation. You can watch the pilot here:  Dark Minions on Amazon Prime  Too bad, but it was super fun to work on and the team at Shadow Machine was superlative, to say the least.  The other animators on the pilot were Hilary Lyle, Rachel Larson, Dan Driscoll, Drew Hodges, Cean Huckabay, and Owen Klatte.  All under the Animation Supervision of Misha Klein and directed by Ross Shuman.


Straight To Hell Returns stop-motion animation breakdown

In 2010 director Alex Cox ("Repo Man", "Sid & Nancy") contacted me to create two new stop-motion skeleton shots for his 80's film "Straight to Hell", which was getting some new VFX for a re-release.  After completing the shots, I pitched to him the idea of doing a third shot in stop-motion for a different part of the film.  This is a breakdown reel that explains the making of the three shots.  And thanks to my old pal Lionel Orozco for giving me a very kind write-up about this on his site:  Stopmotionworks
