Influence Map

Don't be intimidated by the skull. It's just a Mary Blair pastel for Skull Rock from Peter Pan.

Tonight I read my friend Adam Hartlaub's recent blog posts and came across his Influence Map. It looked like an interesting, fun project. So, well over an hour later, I'm looking at my finished collage. I think it confirms three obsessions I already knew about: dramatic low-key lighting, movies, and some kind of fantasy, surreal setting.

In case you feel like trying one yourself, you can download a PSD template here.

More NYC

I can't show any animation from work until it's officially released. For a change, I promise the next post will have some drawings.

New York City

As it turns out, I take the subway to the stop at Times Square. I sure wasn't expecting my commute to be so exciting.
This is the entrance to our office. Couldn't believe how fancy it is.

View from my bedroom window.

And a couple pictures I thought were pretty cool from the plane ride over.

Penguin Walk

After a year's happy hiatus, I have once again attempted to animate. It's really not my strength, but I want to give it some work. More animation coming soon! In the meantime, if you see this, please post your ideas! I would really love to revise this. Click here to see it on YouTube, fast and hiRes.

The rig is "Pengu" by Mayukh Datta. You can get it on
