Old Animations

Hey, I'm on YouTube! (Warning: This stuff is kind of PG.)

Here's some stop-motion puppet animation I did as a student, in 1993:

And you can see more of that on the YouTube channel that my buddy John Walker and I put up:

And here's a short I did for MTV's Cartoon Sushi in 1998:

Blog Trouble

Well . . . I wanted to convert my old "classic template" blog to a new blog with "layouts enabled." This turned out to be a whole lot of trouble, where I had to copy each post over to the new blog, one by one. The worst part is that I've lost all my old comments! Not that I usually get that many, but it's nice when someone stops by and says something nice. So everybody please feel free to comment again on your favorite posts!

Old Sketches - 1996

Here are some more old sketches. I believe these are from around July and August of 1996.

Overflowing Closet

This is for an ad for The King's Ranch and Hannah Homes. If you've got too much stuff, donate it to them, and they'll sell it at America's Thrift Stores:

Cell Phone Gator

Here's an alligator I drew for a company that will put up a cell tower at your lake house. Apparently, they chomp down on the signal and never let go, or something to that effect:

Recent Sketches

This little drawing was just about two inches tall, but I think I might like it better blown up:

Woodland Creature

Hey, all. This is my cat, Woodland Creature, drawn for my wife's birthday card. She really is gray, tan, and orange (the cat, not the wife):

Marathoner Card

Here's another little job I got on It's a greeting card, from a line that's specially made for athletic shops or something. This one's for runners.
Then on the inside, it says, "Stairs are tough, when you can't bend your knees." Or something like that. Cute.

I got my first little job on Elance, already! (see last post) The buyer needed a mascot for her blog about romantic advice and fashion tips. She wanted her mascot to be a little bit Beyonce, but also a little bit ghetto, because she's going to be talking a lot of trash:

I never paint stuff in this airbrushy style, but I tried it for Kissy here, and I think she came out pretty good.

This color technique isn't my favorite, but so many modern comics are painted this way nowadays. It gives it a professional feel, which I think will impress the viewer, if only in their subconscious. Somewhere in the back of their minds, they'll be thinking, "Up to date, corporate, trustworthy." Which the client needs, because she'll be selling some of the products she touts on her blog.

My Portfolio

Hey, I have a page on now, although I don't know how much I'll actually use it to get freelance cartooning jobs. A lot of the stuff there has already been seen here on my sketch blog, but it's pretty cool to have it all collected in one place like this. Click below, then go to Portfolio:

Salty 'Ham Cartooneestas

For the last couple months, I've been putting together an online list / gallery for middle-Alabama cartoonist-types, called Salty 'Ham Cartooneestas. As of today (3/18/'08), we have 22 artists on the page. But there are a bunch more out there who I still want to get on board! If you know any who aren't on the site yet, send them my way:

Breakfast Time

I don't know why I've never posted this. I didn't realize it was up on youtube until just now, which makes it a lot easier. In June/July of '05, I went to L.A. and worked on this Nickelodeon PSA for my friends at Titmouse.

I did a lot of the animation in the first half, before the place settings appear. The rest was animated by Mike Roush.
