Not part of the revolution...

This is my "Seattle Biking Rain Protection Gear" or my SBRPG... I look like a rain protected retard....

This is not a part of the revolution, but it does keep me warm.


A real man doesn't eat green things, he eats dead things.

This is my favorite meal as of late, or what is left of it, CHILI DOGS!


I am a man! Last night I changed my bike's tire tube using only the power of man! I know this may not seem like a big thing for most of you. But to me, who has never done anything like that ever, it was a giant leap! This is what the revolution is all about. Being a real MAN!

The reason why I want to be an animator

This short film was made by 3 french animation students. I bow before them, they are incredibly talented! And this short film reminds me of why I am working so hard. It would be a dream to create something like this or even possible work with them someday.

I just received my dream machine. The Wacom Cintiq 21 ux. I'm still breaking it in, so here is my first attempt at a digital painting using my precious.

I am in love....

Excellence in Graphic Design.

I want you to look at this logo... Really study it. Because it took me a while to see the greatness of the design.

This logo is a fast food restaurant located in Evanston, WY. In which, top to bottom is painted in camo, with hunting games and animal heads on the walls. Basically you can wear your orange neon vest and feel right at home.

Now that we have the visual for the eatery down, let's go back to the logo. First we have the custom design font for the name, but that's not all. Because they wanted it to appeal to hunters, they had to add the moose horns.... But of course that wouldn't be enough for any true outdoorsmen, so they needed to add the pine tree. But that took to much away from the hunting side of the logo so they needed to add not one, but TWO more antlers to the logo. Now to finish the design and bring it all together, they added the splash of blood to really tie down that this food is for the true redneck hunter.

And so, the Excellence in Graphic Design goes to Rusty's. You kill em' we grill em'!

There really are no words... Just beauty.

In search of meaning..

I stumbled across these pictures today that were taken by photographer, Rodney Smith, of a man who is searching to find the meaning of himself. I feel like I relate to this man quite a bit... I am just missing the top hat.

I feel like I relate to this clip today... I found out one of my website designs was a "Cover" to a site, and the "original" was made 2 weeks after I made mine. I don't know if you have a professional opinion, but I friggin hate plagiarism! ARG!!!

Me vs The Sea

It's been a long on going battle with me and sea food, tracing back to early highschool years where I devour'd many a crab leg in an all you can eat buffet.
But much closer, the sea food claimed a huge victory with a gagging and heaving night which left me dazed and confused.
Then came the final blow, last night we were in Cali at the legendary Crab Cooker, where I received a knock out punch not only in food, but in smells as well. And I could fight no more. I wanted to vomit all over everyone, but insted I quitely excused myself from the table and made my exit....

You win Seafood, no longer will I try to dominate you and get you in my belly. I do not relent often, but this time in shame I walk away... Best to ya Sea food...

The Bach..,

Lately I have been feeling like my life is a lot like The Bachelor... In that my life is nothing like the Bachelor... I don't know why but I find myself every Monday night sitting down and investing myself in the lives of these horrible people, yet I love them all as if they were my own. And poor Tenly, I know Jake wasn't the one for you, so maybe I can hook you up with my brother Josh (featured below), cuz he would treat you right.

And thus I sign my retirement from watching the Bach, what a terrible journey this has been...

Mr. Fredricksen

I've just started my traditional animation class, and here is my first sketch of a toy my lovely wife found.

I think I'm fairly happy with the results, all except the front view... It was my last drawing and I was tired, so clearly that view suffered...
