As I take a step back into the world of animation I couldn't help but be tempted to animate something I enjoyed personally. Being the comic book nerd that I am I animated the transformation of my favorite DC super hero: The Green Lantern. Using the traditional Disney animation style that has always held a warm place in my heart I added some effects and color and voila!

Moto Logo's have exploded into the scene of branding and marketing and I for one LOVE IT. It gives me a chance to dive back into my love of animation starting with this small animated advert for Tinder. Taking inspiration from an old animated series called "The Dating Guy" produced by Smiley Guy Studios.

Cherry Kiss Soda Ad
This is a poster advertisement I put together, I was tasked by a long time designer friend and colleague of mine to put together a mock poster for a soda company. I took a illustrative direction with this, along with a sort of 1950's flavor.
I was commissioned by an author friend of mine to create a cover for his novel "Where the Dogs Bark". A horror themed novel telling of an ancient native tale of wild dogs foretelling immanent danger. I went with a digital painting encased in darkness, and leaving out the books title from the cover to give it a more daunting and mysterious feel.
This was a logo I designed that was intended to be the logo of a fictional tea shop in a short film. Once Upon A Teatime is a fairy-tale based tea shop where drinks and desserts are titled after famous fairy-tale stories. This is me drawing the line between simple and detailed, making sure the logo translates well as a logo for a real business if it were.

Putting pencil to paper is very therapeutic and as an artist I often return to the classic methods as a way to unwind and get a grip on my roots. Computers and tablets help me produce wonderful works but theres no feeling like pencil, paper and acrylics.
