hi everyone. Here are some concepts for the short short I've been working on in my free time. With fewer scenes unfinished than complete, it's time to start thinking about the next phase. How are these all going to fit together? And how to color them (with as little work as possible)?

These are just ideas. Anything and everything could and will change. nothing is permanent.

from what I've been showing so far, you can tell I'm really pushing the story and the production value. Well, not exactly. This is another experiment to keep me going before my next big short gets underway. A sort of spiritual sequel to come have an omelette with me.

speaking of CHAOWM, if you're in new york you'll be able to catch the world premiere at the new york food film festival, June 13-19th. food and film excite me.

In other news, you can catch Chicken Cowboy this weekend at NFFTY in Seattle, or next week at Rincon International. I think some more screenings are still coming, just in case you're not sick of chicken westerns.

have I been dropping too many hyperlinks lately? sorry if it's a little tacky.

first off, here are some hugging dolphins

It's been a busy past week. Chicken Cowboy won for animation at AFI Dallas, and won Aspen Shortfest's "High Five to Lo-Fi" award. I was told that means it had the best low-budget to high production value.

Going to Aspen Shortsfest was a blast too. Met tons of extremely talented filmmakers. It also made me sad to miss AFI.

It's really amazing all the work that goes into making these festivals happen. My hats off to all the organizers and volunteers.

Looking forward to getting back to work on this short short. It's going to utilize a lot of the animation I've been posting lately. Can you detect a theme?

hi guys.  if you haven't heard the news, here it is.

Thanks again to everyone who made chicken cowboy possible.  It was a great way to finish nyu. Tons of fun to make.  

Here's second drawing I ever did of chicken cowboy. It was waaay back, summer of 06. The first drawing I did on a beach in california-- I'm too tired to dig it up and it's almost too silly to post.

here are some other old paintings of cc.

I'm off to aspen shortsfest. Thanks to everyone who saw chicken cowboy at AFI Dallas and First Run this past week. In the next month it's playing at NFFTY and Nashville.
