a scribble I painted on the back of tisch's commencement program.

I found out last week that shark suit won a marion carter green grant from the national board of review of motion pictures. It's enough encouragement for me to get rolling on my next project.

Wow. life after graduation has been busy. A lot of ins, lot of outs, lot of what-have-yous.

here are some old posts, selected at random, reposted. Just to keep the ol' blog up and moving. I've been doodling, but haven't had much time to paint anything. So I'll post some new stuff later this week.

About 10 days ago someone uploaded a copy of shark suit onto yahoo. I'm not really sure why they had a copy or why they uploaded it, but somehow it got 42,000 views. So I decided to start uploading shark suit myself, since I guess people will watch it.

first off, good ol' youtube:

If you'd like to watch in HD, check out shark suit on vimeo:

Another great thing about this past week's spring animation showcase was the chance to do an installation for my experimental animation course. Doing something different is always fun.

So here it is, a giant ear with earwax and egg.

This box was filled with speakers. The sound travelled through the pvc pipe into a hole in the ear canal. The monitor also looped an egg spinning.

My hope was that, in order to hear the audio, you'd have to lean very close to the ear. Once there, you'd get a nice smell of the earwax, which was actually fresh peanut butter.

Ideally, I would have had a small fan in the box or pipe to blow the smell out further. But you can't have everything. Reactions were mostly positive, except that people don't seem to like peanut butter in this context.

here's some gauche stuff.

The pictures above(minust the frogs and dr breakfast) were from a catalog of Mississippi filming locations sent to me by the nice people at the Crossroads Film Festival in Jackson, MS, where Bigfoot's Eulogy screened a couple weeks ago. Looks like a swell place to make a movie.

Here are some toes.

edit: my 200th post on this blog. uh, go me?

Thanks to everyone who came to the screening! We had a really great turnout--I only wish we had more chairs for the half of the audience that had to stand (including the Dean until someone got her a seat). What a great way to end college. Better than commencement could possibly be, anyhow.

Gonna start posting more videos, hopefully. Here's a tech demo of a tough scene from chicken cowboy.

I'm a big fan of 3D that doesn't look like 3D. I try to use it not as a shortcut, but to let me do things I don't have the chops to do otherwise. Call me a sissy.

Today's the day! Come see chicken cowboy at NYU!

My mom made these chicken cowboy cookies. She made about 4 dozen of them.

Also, "Shark Suit: the Musical" won second place in the student category at the ASIFA East animation festival. There were lots of extremely awesome films shown. Just happy to be a part of the screening.
you got served

We've all worked so damn hard for this. Lets take thursday to sit back, relax, and watch some really good cartoons.

knowing this is my 4th and final showcase screening makes me feel terrible. I'd like to say the college years flew by, but they lasted awhile. And they were mostly amazing.

Anyhow, stop by the screening to see chicken cowboy for the first time ever. This Thursday, 6pm. Screenings at 6:30 and 7:30pm. 721 Broadway, 9th floor, NYC. If you're going to SVA's show instead, you've got a good window of about 10 minutes to grabs some food and say hello.

below are some ideas for my next short, tentatively called "Dr Breakfast."

Hoping to get some ideas and a script up and running in the next couple weeks.
