Full Circle-character environment design

Full Circle was an inhouse animated short. the story is about 6 rubber ducks in a tub. i got to design the bathroom, and the ducks. i decided to do the ducks in more mallard duck scheme than the typical yellow rubber duck color cause of the environment was so sterile, so much white in the bathroom that the yellow ducks would be so boring to look at. that is why i also went with a more abstract style for the ducks.

Full Circle-environment studies

close up paintings of the different regions of the bathroom. i went with a more warped look, kinda like a drooping candle wax look to the assets in the bathroom. i did these in photoshop with a wacom.

Zeno-advertisment design

style boards for an advertisment of a product that removes zits. never really played with vector tools, so this was my first time to really play around with it. they wanted it really feminine, gearing toward the ladies. did diefferent ones playing with flowers, and the bottom one i was thinking more of the teenage market.

Over the Hill-character concept

character design for a birthday e-card short. the idea behind it, was an old school steamboat willie or bosko style of walk cycle of this character walking over a hill as he pass the highest point and comes back down he starts to get older till his back gives out. he falls and as he hits the ground his body turns to dust and as the dust settles a tombstone is revealed.

Death Prank_character concept

i try to create some different and unique style for each animation short. this one is an over the hill short, where the kid comes to the older guys house dressed as death, and when the dude answers the door he gets scared and he passed out.

World War 2 Pinata-character design

this was done for a birthday e-card animated short. these were painted through photoshop. the story is told from inside the pinata as it is getting bashed by kids. the candies are inside mimicing a world war 2 paratrooper. as the pinata breaks they bail out and jump!

Remote Kat-character design

this was the preliminary idea for an ad for the military tv station that was converting to HD. previously they told us that they didnt want to use any military situations in their ads, they didnt want the families of the soldiers relating to that. so i took to a very colorful direction. more of an anime, nintendoesque lightness to it. i wanted to focus on the vibrant colors that HD cranks out. but they that it was feminine and kiddie kiddie. so they changed their minds and wanted something more gears of war in style. so we took it there.

Flat Panel Dog-character Design

character design for a post apocalyptic future world, where these High Definition Screens rule over the world, the ground would be layed out with broken standard def tv monitors. but the idea got twisted into something else.

Corrosion-character concepts

was hired to create a character to represent corrosion on engine parts. very minimal direction only direction it had to be female and be chained. this was for a print ad.


this was an indie film, where we were hired to composite a CG train to hit a guy. We did that but something wasn't giving it the feel of impact, so they got me to Photoshop the actor getting smashed in one frame of the film. it worked great, and it was fun to murder him.
i also did some of the textures for the carts on the train.
