I'm an animator currently working in Brooklyn, NY. If you like the junk here, please take the time to check out my blog, where I post a lot more of my personal and professional work.
I recently did this short for TEDTalks’ educational website, TED-Ed. Olympian Steve Mesler talks about how he had to make some big decisions about his life to achieve his dream of winning a gold medal.
I completed the short at Augenblick Studios with all of the great assistance/supervision/direction found there. Thanks to everyone who helped!
Sketches from my comic project involving the Aztecs (the Mexica) during the Spanish invasion of Mexico and Tenochtitlan. Characters include historical figures such as Moctezuma II (Montezuma), Hernan Cortes, and Malintzin; and fictional characters that I’m making up or are only very loosely based on realworld counterparts.
With my comic, I’m hoping to put the invasion of the Mexican capitol city into a perspective that people today can understand. I want to explore the invasion from the perspective of the people who had their way of life changed most by the events that were unfolding.
In a world dictated by astronomy, calendars, predictions, rigid religious and social systems and human sacrifice, it’s looking more and more like the premise is going to center around the idea that our futures can’t be predicted, bought, or bargained for, and the ways that different people come to terms with or deny that idea in times of crisis and loss of control.
I’d be interested in any feedback anyone has on these sketches/designs. Nothing is very finalized yet, so if something stands out that you really like or dislike, I’d appreciate hearing from you!
Also, I have 49 followers now, I know some of you and don’t know others, but thanks for the interest, all!
Tonight is the Ugly Americans season finale! In honor, I drew Zombie Beyonce, who was mentioned a couple of episodes back by Lady Hooha’s stage manager. I think we all wish that we worked for Zombie Beyonce. Watch the finale tonight after South Park!
