Nosferatu

Why not get into the Halloween spirit a bit early? This was done during a few of my Live Sketches (Part 01 and Part 02) on my Youtube channel. I added some colors later for kicks.

Sklice Spots

I was contracted to produce 4 spots for Sklice by Digitas Health. Its been around two years since producing these. I personally did three of them while my brother Phil did the 4th (or actually the 2nd in the series but who's counting). These are the three I was responsible for.



This campaign ran on Sklice's website, and can be found here:

Cheerios "How It Works!" spot

This was a spot I worked on almost three years ago to-the-day of this posting for Pat-Man Studio. I believe it aired a handful of times as a 30-second cut-down version. This is the longer 60 second version.



I handled animation with another animator named Mike Luzzi, some storyboard revision, and edit. This was done in Flash and After Effects. The designs were a throwback to the 50's Cheerios Kid complete with the off-register line work, and was pretty fun to work with.

Kyle's Animator Pencil

I had a few min to doodle up some sketches with Kyle's new Animator Pencil that he released yesterday. I was pretty stoked about it. One of its features is that you can tilt the stylus to simulate some shading techniques like one could with a real pencil. This feature didn't seem to work as well as I had hoped. The tilt range was minimal and the surface area of the brush did not really increase that much. I also felt as if I needed to press pretty hard on the tablet to get it to shade as much as I needed it to. Still, the Animator Pencil gives a nice and fluid line for fast sketching. It might be my new go-to brush for drawing in Photoshop. Head on over to Kyle's Gumroad page and give the guy a few bucks for it. Its worth it!
