Beginning of the End

This was my last week of Summer break from CSU Chico, on Monday the 26th I am entering my final semester!  I finished a drawing for a boy named Daniel who is 9 years old.  My good friend Matt Wilson brought over several toys of Daniels a few weeks ago wanting me to draw them.  I was told he watched "Rocket Monkeys," so that is the look I went with. Here are the pictures I took of the toy for reference, and the final image.

I dedicated my final summer vacation to animation and getting better at it.  In my final week of break I finished an alarm wake up animation and went back to the first animation I did during the first week of break almost three months ago.  Looking back at the original piece from three months ago I can see I have learned a lot and figured out a lot during these 3 months, but also see that I have a long, long, long way to go, and am looking forward to absorbing as much knowledge as I can from John Pozzi and Mark Pullyblank in the next few months. Enjoy and thanks for looking at my blog!(no sound alarm, sound Big Trouble)

I was fortunate enough to get to work on an entrance for VideoMatt.  A logo was designed by Alan Knight ( and I got to animate it.  Thanks Matt and Alan. With some fancy transitions and sound from Matt it turned out like this>>>>
