Oath of the Horatii and ...Star Trek?...Really? - A Retrospective

While ritually cleaning out room of clutter I stumbled upon my collection of old art dating back to as far as when I was 10 years old. Some people believe that there is no relevance in old work for whatever reason. I on the other hand believe the opposite. My older work for me is like map for the development of my craft, every piece of old work builds up to what my work looks like today. Its nostalgic to see where I came from and how far I have come. Without further ado heres the good stuff...


Since there has been a lot of posts of life drawing lately, I figured I would post this first as the reference point. This was done some time in high school. It just goes to show you, that we all have to start from somewhere.

From old paintings


The rest are below in chronological order...I think:

Storyboard assignment - Iron Giant recut trailer

Here is a recut trailer I completed for my story boarding class. I took scenes from the Iron Giant and spliced it over the audio track from the new Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen teaser trailer. I'm hoping school work does not infringe on copyrights, but I guess we'll see.

Iron Giant is the copyright of Warner Brothers Animation, and Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen is the copyright of Dreamworks LLC and Paramount Pictures.

Time Flies

I am amazed that my previous post was 2 week ago, time truly does fly when you are being hammered by school work. School has been crazy with all my final assignment due dates and final exam landing this week. Thankfully it is all over tomorrow. I am looking forward to some R&R and then getting down and serious (not too serious, of course) with my personal work and development this summer. In the mean time, here are some cafe sketches and life drawings (in the post after this one) I drew as breathers and breaks between work.

Sketchbook dump

Here are some sketches that have been completed over the last few days. Its been therapeutic to get back to cafe sketching and it is also reassuring for myself to know that even when I am exhausted and lack the strength to carry on with school work, I still find the want to draw to on my own.

Excuse the censorship on the photos, I have been concocting a plan for world domination that I don't feel is quite ready to reveal to the public just yet...

Team Awesome Mascot - Mr. Awesome

In another moment of procrastination I am posting my attempt at creating a character in the style of The Dating Guy show. I created this character for my Animation Programs class and I have decided that this character will be the mascot for my storyboard group, Team Awesome (pending the approval of my other group members of course).
