Zooooo Sketches

Some new Zoo sketches...except for the elephant, he's a repeat offender. So the Vancouver Zoo slightly trumps the "Ottawa Zoo" (which is a farm, with no more than pigs and cows ect.) Although the Vancouver Zoo is like a low security prison. The Rhino enclosure consists of nothing but a road barrier, and the cheetah is surrounded by a common chain link fence, meant to keep children safe in their backyards.
Anybody going to CTN? Drop me a line if you are!
Thanks for all the feedback, very much appreciated!!

The others are the latest of my cafe sketches! All pen on paper, the 2 were coloured in PS.

I've recently discovered 2 amazing sites...the first being my pal Megans, her site is called She updates constantly and it's a great source of inspiration!

The other is, it's a very cool site!

Check them out!

Thanks again for all the comments, and feedback...they keep me going!

The Smurfs

I've Been busy finishing up work on The Smurfs movie at Sony Animation. I've had such a great experience on this film, the crew is fantastic, I'm learning so much everyday and I am disappointed it's coming to an end in a few weeks! I came onto the project in late November about half way through production, with very little 3d knowledge and I feel fortunate to have learned and worked with the super talented folks here in Vancouver! Check out the trailer HERE

On another note, I just signed up for the Stephen Silver character design course and start in early June, I am very excited! Here are some Cafe scribbles and a character I've recently begun to flesh out for a dialogue test! All feedback is most definately welcome!

Jake and the Neverland Pirates

I had the privilege of working on this great new Disney TV show called Jake and the Neverland Pirates. There were so many talented artists involved, a huge shout out to Mercury Filmworks, all the animation, layouts and 3d were done there, they set a huge standard for TV!
This show is not 3d, nor is it traditionally's done in ToonBoom Harmony and is considered "paper cutout animation". It premiers on Valentines Day...for any 2-6 year old reading this blog.

Jimmy Two Shoes

I spent about 8 months working with the super talented Kyle Marshall, Sean Scott, Darren Ward and Steve Lambe on Jimmy Two Shoes, season 2. I was doing mainly storyboard clean-up and revisions along side some of the finest storyboard folks in town. During my time I was lucky enough to work with the amazing Steve Lambe (character designer season 2) and help out doing some board specific poses for the animators. Above are a bunch of Miseryvillians that have eaten pickles and gotten that horrid plague...pickle zombies.

Here are some board poses, and costume changes all based off the talented Steve lambe. Everything from cyclopse lions, paintball bunnies, fighting food and an Irish street kid named Peep. Be sure to check out the talented crew:
Kyle Marshall (co-director/season 1 character designer)
Sean Scott (co-director/creator)
Darren Ward (prop designer)
Steve Lambe (character designer)
More to come!!
