Above is a series of paintings entitled Pathos – a commissioned project I finished last week for my friend (thanks for the support, G!) as I'm trying out new things :)
This has been added to my site – along with a recent cover illustration for the Pasadena Weekly (an attempted spoof, as you may see, on "The Colbert Report"). You can view the updated portfolio section here.
More site updates to come...soon!

Thanks to all who have given such positive response to the previous post (1/10/07) of my little comic strip, now "officially" titled Little Do They Know. Above is the latest installment (please click to enlarge).
Needless to say, this little strip is still in its fledgling state – a personal source of catharsis at least...a glimpse of better things to come at best. I'm aiming to make this a weekly post. So stay tuned ;)

Posted above are my sketches from tonight's session of The Drawing Club in Los Angeles (please click for a larger view). Emily Marshall posed as "The Beatnik Chick." Great fun :)

Is it already nearing the middle of January? :P
Busy past week...lots of to-do lists, various projects, catching up on stuff in general, and more to-do lists...
Above is a little comic strip that just...came out. I intend to dabble with a series of doodles called "Little Do They Know" – I suppose this is a start. Anyhoo...back to the bills!

Happy New Year!
In celebration of 2007 (which I hope will be a healthy & prosperous one for all), I created a quick little animation...aptly titled Happy New Year...which has been added to my site. To view, please click here.
It's been a while since I've played around with one of these. So allow me to also thank: my trusty ballpoint pen, a pack of scratch pads from Staples, the magic that is Photoshop and Apple iLife, and – last but not least – my family & friends who have always encouraged me to keep my love for traditional animation alive and kicking (even if it is on the back burner & remains in an amateurish state).
Please forgive me if the usage of balloons in animated shorts has become a bit trite – I just thought it might be a simple way of conveying a simple message: reaching new heights with every year that becomes of us.
Word of the Day: copious
