Lana the Trustworthy 11 Year Old


So Lana, the little girl above, is the protagonist of a Christmas story I am currently working on. I know that it seems cliché to be working on a Christmas story with the holidays fast approaching, but developing stories that exist around Christmas is a less than uncommon occurrence for me year round. I don’t think this will be her final design, but it is the closest I have got. I still need to work out a more iconic shape for her head.

Plein Air Painting


Every Sunday, I have been traveling around LA, to plein air paint! I realized that the main thing lacking in my environment painting, is an observed appeal. There are some things that you just can't make up, and the only way to get better is to paint it. Life drawing is something I have been doing for awhile, but I always only focus on the characters. It wasn't until I left scad that I realized, if I want to tell my stories the way I imagine them, I need to know both.

Almost an Update



Things have been crazy lately between submitting a Disney portfolio and working at Bolt City productions I have had little to no time. However while building my portfolio I had to let some pieces go simply because they had been in previous portfolios. so I thought why no post then here. the first one is an character for one of Austin Madison's Chades Challenge, the topic was Hot Headed Coal Miners. The 2nd is the main character design from my Senior Project. His name is Frank Wright, and as a kid he often dreamed that he could fly sometimes with no success. Oh and lastly this is what Bolt City Productions looks like!
