The Buffalo Gang is Back

I'm currently going over and revising my portfolio, and I decided to come back to this piece to finish it.  I posted it a while back and haven't touched it since.  I'll probably come back to this again and fix some things, but for now I'm going to move on.

New Website!

Hey guys,  I recently started using squarespace to host my portfolio.  You can check it out at or by clicking my portfolio tab up top.   I've put some work on it already, but I'm still in the process of going through my work and putting it online.

I'll still continue updating this blog with sketches, but most of my finished work will be on my website.

Last week my friends and I had a story meeting about the short film I'm trying to direct this year.  After months of working and re-working story, I think we've finally gotten to a point where we are all satisfied with what we have.  The story has changed so much from the original idea, that I think I have to go back and re-design the character.  I don't think the original design was bad.. I just don't think it fits the needs of the character.  I'm starting to explore different ideas, and hopefully I can come up with with a stronger design.

Here is one of the thumbnails I'm considering.

Also, Here is a sketch of my friend Kayla Rimes.

Taking a Break

I've been really busy the past couple of weeks producing a short 30 second commercial with a small group of students at SJSU.  I took a quick 20 minute break to paint one of the animators in the group working like a maniac.

Concept for a Short film Project

Here is an abandoned concept painting I did for a short film that some friends and I are making.  We are trying to go back and really nail down the story before we move forward.

Took a break from my regular work schedule and set up a still life in the library.
