This Animation Produced by Studio G-dCast was my two month assignment and I consider my 2nd Short film. This work is part of a larger project called "The Psalms Project". I was given the powerful poem, the music, some guiding direction from my producer and asked to animate it. The result above has been well received by both critics and commenters.
Thank you to everyone involved in this project to which I am so proud to be a part.

2/7/2011 - Project Giant Robots
Firstly The Outside Lands work is up at Dash Cafe and they've asked for more. Secondly I've added illustrations of giant robots that I've been working on in illustrator. Look for them under the portfolio section.
2/6/2011 - New Work: The Outside Lands
I've finished the series for the Dash Cafe show and I'm calling it The Outside Lands, an old name for the Sunset district in San Francisco where I grew up. It's covered in houses now but the Sunset used to be dunes and because it was so far from the city center people would live out on the dunes in shacks and old rail cars. There's less lawlessness now but it's home and I thought it a fitting title for illustrations of lots of tiny houses on top of each other.
I'm taking the pieces over to Dash Cafe tomorrow where you can collect one or all. They range in price between $40 and $65 - watercolor and Ink on wood panels. Each one is named after a street in the Sunset and signed.
I've begun putting pictures of them up in my portfolio. Just go to the top right where it says portfolio, mouse over and scroll down one to The Outside Lands. I'll finish posting the images tomorrow. More to come as I continue working on the series so keep checking back!
If you would like a painting I will take on commissions. Email me if you're interested!
