Podcast Interview with the Stratton Foundation

I was very fortunate to be one of the recipients of the 2011 Stratton Foundation Scholarship earlier this year. But it didn't stop there, the foundation was also kind enough to purchase a piece of my artwork during this years CCS Student Exhibition Opening and interview me for their scholarship podcast. The interview is now online so if you are interested in listening then CLICK HERE to visit the Stratton Foundation's podcast page.

Photos from the 2011 CCS Student Exhibition Opening (I know, very late)

Last May, the College for Creative studies held its annual Student Exhibition show at the end of the school year. It was a huge hit and great to see all of our stuff on display. Posters, prints, and pieces from Dark Circus as well as some independent work was up for sale. I was so honored to find that some of my work actually sold! Doug and Kaoru Stratton of the Stratton Foundation purchased a signed print of the Dark Circus Promotional Poster with accompanying ink line art and Carrie Lezotte from One of Us Films purchased a collection of caricature prints depicting my classmates.

Me and some ART!

Dark Circus is still on a mini hiatus for the mean time. (I needed a vacation!) It's really hard to get back to business when you keep finding way to make yourself too busy to animate. The job/internship hunt is still underway but I do promise that some wonderful prospects are underway for the future.

Well, Class is Over. I can see a summer of animating past the tassel of my graduation cap

So senior studio has come to an end and graduation is only a few days away. For an evening, I'll be trading out a pencil for a diploma. Even though the class is over, I plan on picking back up on production after a little vacation.I'm really going to miss those long hours in the studio with my classmates working an cracking jokes. It's been something golden.

Updated Work Reel for End of March

It's been far too long since the last work reel post. There is still a lot of things not in the reel yet like cleaned and colored animations. I'm still looking for folks who can help me with that. There's a lot to color and the more help I get the faster the film gets done. There is still a little more than 30 days left to work on the film before the deadline so it's back to the animation table for me!
