Improv Comic.

Doing an improv comic with my pal Ryan Kramer. Just wanted to post a teaser. Coming whenever we feel like ending it, I guess.

I apologize.

Don't mean to fling turds your way, but thought I'd upload SOMETHING.

Life's been busy with the new house situation. I'm trying to finish next year's batch of comics so I can focus on films. I'll try to do more doodles for you guys tho.

Been Busy.

Moved into a new house, starting three new cartoons (short trailer, gag film, and 7 minute epic), hoping to shoot some live action skits soon, and recording music in the space i set up in my closet. Not many doodles these days unless it's for a project. Sorry blogger.

Check out our comics website, www.TOONHOLE.com! Updated every Monday, Wednesday, Friday with animated films going up about once a month!

Been a while...

...since I took some time to just doodle and not work on something productive. Sorry for lack of updates. Been getting a lot of comics done so I can work on some longer films in 2011.

In case you haven't been following, we've been updating TOONHOLE.com every Monday, Wednesday, Friday (with mainly comics with an occassional film). Here's one of mine from Wednesday:

Okay, back to work on personal projects.

Speed paint.

Hour and 20 minutes, no reference. Not super fast and trying to get nighttime colors without the usual monotone treatment. I need to start using reference too. I gotta get into better habits

So much stuff to study

late night doodle

Thursday, August 26, 2010


Clothed life drawing in the studio, trying to hone the gag/funny drawing muscle. Mine is weak, but someday it'll be strong if I keep working it.

Thursday, August 19, 2010


Finally getting a chance to color this comic. So much going on right now. It'll feel good to finish something completely.

Won't be on the site for a while tho.

Working Again.

Lunchtime draw session. I've had a lot less time to work on projects, and I'm JUST ABOUT finished with two of them. And I'm SUPER excited to start some more. YEAHHH! Anyway, lunchtime doodles (bad gags and all):

Pirate kegstand?

Everyone else was drawing all serious. I almost slipped into the hole

Pirates eating sushi?

Cannibal Holocaust.

Sketched these while watching. The movie was kinda disappointing because people hyped it up too much.

And everyone check out my pal AARON PAETZ! He's posting again

Don't rush stuff.

Evidence #1. Trying to rush through this project and I almost fell into the trap. Wasted a bunch of time finishing up a crappy first pass. Haha, thank god for all my Toonhole pals keeping me in check. Sometimes you loose touch when you're just looking at all this stuff by yourself. I think a large part of a great artist is the many artists behind him that give him feedback

Animation is about halfway done. I think the real beast is learning color correction software. Ack, I have like 3 projects going right now. Gotta forge ahead.

In other news, we might start releasing films next month. Just gotta get some logistics lined up. WOOHOO!

New Film.

Starting up a new one! WOOHOO! Some concept sketches.

Friday, June 25, 2010


Almost finished with sound on the Lou the Frog cartoon, shooting a live action comedy short (with composited animation) next week, thumbing out a new really short short, hoping to get vocal records done for a longer animatic that I'm working on with cartoon all-star John Martinez that hopefully I'll get some help animating from the rest of the Toonhooligans, and gearing up to start penciling comics again. Gotta put pictures with this crap so here.

Sorry I haven't been posting more. I still love you.

Compositing Magic.

Trick #231231312:

When you got a close-up, if you gaussian blur your BG, it mimics a wide angle lens and gives you more depth! It's less about mimicing live action, and more about giving the audience a clear place to focus. It doesn't feel right to stare at the out of focus BG details, so it draws your audience eyes right where you want them to look: at your crappy animation.

oh i guess here's the before picture to compare.

Okay back to work.

The Back 100...

You know, when you're sucking wind, legs feel like they're pumping battery acid. I love it

It's the truth.

Put away your iPhones if you don't want them to get bloody.
