I had the honor of filming Dave and Christina Hamilton’s wedding a little while back in a super cool place called ”Salvage One” here in Chicago. A few weeks later we completed the project by filming the rest of his music video out on the icy shores of Montrose Beach at 7 in the morning. It […]
Petra and I returned to the land where we first met. We visited the pub that changed our lives forever. We stayed with friends and family and enjoyed England’s green grass, cream teas, and hand pulled ales. Most of all we enjoyed the company, kindness and generosity of it’s people.

This latest animation was a collaboration with a fellow animator named Patrick Cheng of CatTrigger.com who did a great job bringing our piggybank to life.

Thanks to my all time favorite client, I have a new Cintiq 13HD drawing tablet made by Wacom. It’s pressure sensitivity and accuracy are astounding! I can’t wait to start really using it and creating more eye popping visual candy with it! See the final illustrations HERE.
