Horseshoe Crab Character


An attempt to do a fun Horseshoe Crab Hero guy. I'll keep experimenting with this one. I think I started something here. Horseshoe Crab have a really cool design.

Follow That Car

Follow That Car is the story of Lloyd, a simple-minded taxi driver in the big city. He's grown tired of driving the same dull people to their same dull places of work and begins to have second thoughts of his career choice......until one day. Lloyd is given the chance to show what he's really capable of.



I had always thought that a taxi driver's goal in life was to one day be that car that was chosen to "Follow That Car!" in a chase.
Lloyd, my protagonist, wishes for just that. He shows that he has what it takes to pursue a getaway car in the busy city. After all, as a taxi driver he knows the neighborhood inside out and upside down. Lloyd turns out to be the perfect man for the job as he showcases his superior driving abilities.

Robot character

ld
I was fooling around with this robot character a few months ago, and I never really went anywhere with it. I found this old sketch of in in my files so I decided that maybe it could use it again.

Here's my first stop motion animation using paper cut outs. It star's my alligator character Ajax, and how he retaliates against a rude golfer.
This is a rough paper cut out of the shapes I needed for the body.

Just a fun little pencil test of GlobberMite I did at school.

Student Show Exhibition

Well I found some time to post some pictures from the College for Creative Studies Student Show Exo. It was a little stressful at first. I didn't know the exact measurements of my section and I didn't want to overlap into Rachael's wall. We also didn't know what artwork could stay up due to "quality". However, Rach and I seemed to pick our strongest stuff and it all stayed!

Rachael's half of our wall.
All of her artwork can be seen at her site: RavenInkArtwork.com
We were able to wrangle up a table to put her two awesome maquettes and the dolls she made of my characters.
And here's my half of the wall. I matted character sheets from my Snordo Dragon cast. In the middle is some screenshots from my film Camel Country, and we finish off with assorted character designs and concept art. (found among the sketches and character concepts on this blog!)
Here's the box that the dolls will be living in for the month. Perfect sized box that was whipped together in about an hour and a half.
Here's the sign on the door as you walk into this particular gallery. I was excited to see that the faculty took a shot from my Camel Country film to put on the sign.
