"Electric City" background paints

Hey folks, here are some backgrounds I painted for the new web series, "Electric City".  I did these about a year and a half ago, so I guess it's finally safe to put these up!  Background layouts were done by the awesome Rafael Hurtado.

Sketchbook Brain Diarrhea #1

Yes, I have a sketchbook, I shit you not.

From the Vault: More "Ricky Gervais Show" backgrounds

So here are some more backgrounds that I designed / painted for Season 2 of "The Ricky Gervais Show":

From the Vault: More "Dan Vs." background paints!

Here are some backgrounds I painted on "Dan Vs." Season 1!  Layouts by Jairo Lizarazu and Marina Levikova. 

"Legend of Zelda" mural

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR!  Here's a pretty funny project that I helped iam8bit with last year.  Nintendo of America wanted to decorate their San Francisco conference room with a "Legend of Zelda" theme to celebrate Zelda's 25th Anniversary.  Here's a video of the room being decorated:

...and here's the full size image:

This ended up being one of the largest digital images I've ever worked on.  In Photoshop, the dimensions of the piece were 124 inches by 1047 inches in order to keep up the image quality.  I knew having 24GB in my computer would pay off one day!

"La Luz de Jesus 25" and old Animation Insider interview

Yes, yes, it's been a while!  As most of my friends know, if they haven't heard from me in a while, it usually means I'm working 2-3 jobs at the same time.  Anyways, I plan to clean out my closet full of old stuff I've been meaning to post.  But let's start off with the easy stuff!:

La Luz de Jesus 25th Anniversary show / book:

La Luz de Jesus Gallery (no relation, haha) is one of the oldest institutions that supported the low brow art movement and they released an awesome book showcasing all the artists that have had a show there... including me!!!  I had my first gallery show there over 10 years ago and it was such a huge honor being asked to be a part of this historic book.  So buy one and support the low brow art movement!

...and here's an old interview I did with Animation Insider back in April 2011 about my experiences with being in the wacky world of animation!


Okay, I'll post some actual art one of these days!

"Drawn Together: The Movie"

I'm starting to get my portfolio ready again (time to sniff around for work... again) and saw some stuff I worked on a couple of years ago.  Here are some backgrounds I painted for "Drawn Together: The Movie".  Layouts were done by the awesome Angelo Vilar!
