Burger King - "ThisOrThat" - Character Animation Demo Clip

This was an old one from 2005 that I helped animate back when I was at Curious Pictures in NYC. I was working on "Little Einsteins" at the time, and this was some extra freelance a few of us in the drawn animation department worked on the side. I believe there are one or two more of these that we worked on.

I remember "they" (the agency possibly?) had plans to create a series based on these characters, The Honbatz, that just never materialized. However, one of the animators on this spot with me, Mark, made sure to make caricatures of all the animators on the Little Einsteins team as a Honbatz. It's possible I still have the one he did of me somewhere in my files...I'll have to dig around and see if I can find it!

Color Model WIP

Here's a color model and a cleanup up a frame from some traditional animation that I have been working on the side for fun.

You can catch the livestreams on my Youtube Channel in this playlist, or you can find me at Twitch here.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

New video for The Mother Goose Club posted today that I animated, storyboarded, and edited. Designs by Astrid Reimer. Enjoy with the pre-schooler in your life.


"Do Not Touch" for Nick.com Halloween 2016

I did this for Nick.com's website for Halloween 2016. Nick.com has several "Do Not Touch" buttons that when clicked call up a random and short piece of animation. They wanted something for Halloween, and I was happy to be  part of it.

This was a lot of fun! I was given a rough description of what they wanted to see, and was asked to come up with some original designs and animation. I had to work at 12 fps and under seven seconds so it was quick to load on Nickelodeon's website. So that was a bit of a challenge making it all fit at that frame rate and screen time. Maybe it will pop back up again next year when Nick.com switches back over to its Halloween theme again?

You can see some character design exploration I did for this on this post.

Quick sketch today. Had some freelance over the last week which ate into my free time to sketch. Gotta get back in the saddle.
