I Solemnly Swear

So I have decided that I'm awful at this blogging thing, and in order to master it mercilessly, I'm going to post on this bad larry every day. (We'll see how long I actually do this, but I'm staying positive.)
Clambake Studios came to Massart today and let us take a little peak at one of their super secret pilots that was pretty darn hilarious. Flash + ridiculous plotlines= Ideal Job.  So I pretty much want to work for them. 
I got some great positive feedback for my demo reel, portfolio and sketch book, and now am spewing forth creative energy (which I'm trying to focus on Degree Project.) I'm hoping that once I get that little project out of the way and out of sight, I can do an internship with them. 

Onward to artwork. Please enjoy a stale piece of artwork that I found in furthest corner of my dusty desktop portfolio folder. Along with posting every day, I also will do my very best to generate fresh and crispy new artwork for your eyeballs to enjoy.

Porfolio ing

Clambake Studios is coming to Massart on Monday and are doing portfolio reviews. So I decided it would be wise to have some finished character sheets to show them and hopefully woo them into hiring me. It was a wonderful and welcome break from working on my Degree Project.
I forgot how much I really love doing character sheets, it's so enjoyable to see the many faces of a character and discover how they would react to certain emotions. 

Also, cats.

Degree Project Progress

So I'm moving right along in my Senior Project, and Have painted probably a minute worth of animation by now. Joy. I'm very pleased with how the characters are moving and how the frames look. I just hope that I can paint all those bad larry's before the due date. 

Anywho, enjoy some snippets from my upcoming movie, and a lil pirate character that always seems to come up in my sketch book. I thought I'd draw him in Flash, since Clambake Studios is coming to my school and I don't have much Flash stuff in my portfolio. He may need some tweaking.

Here we go again

Every semester starts off the same way. I always say, 'Okay, this is the semester where I WON'T procrastinate anymore, and stay on top of everything! And this time I mean it!" And every semester it goes horribly wrong. Well so far so go in terms of me keeping up. Degree Project is in full swing and I have the first minute animated and waiting for color. WOO. I'm already a smidge stressed out about this, and I see many an all nighter in my future, along with caffeine induced twitches and twinges while I go blind from my light box.

Please sit back and enjoy my descent into madness. 

On a different note, I recently did some logo art for a good friend who is starting a new band which is going to be super famous and successful. Here's the final image!
