Worlds Finest

I  would kill to have my own World's Finest show someday.  I doodled this Batman a while back and wanted a Superman in a matching style.  I would do this every day if I could.

Prisoner of Benda pt. 1

I thought I'd start sharing some of my favorite storyboards from my time at Futurama.  So here's a short but fun sequence from an episode called "The Prisoner of Benda".  Directed by my good pal Stephen Sandoval, this was one of my favorite episodes to storyboard because it involved the cast switching brains with one another.  Here the Professor inhabits Bender's shiny metal ass, so he decides to have a little fun with it.  Originally, Bender was going to miss the target by just a little bit and land in the dirt, but our Supervising Director Peter Avanzino had the genius idea of having him smash into the stands.  More to come!

Work in Progress Short Film designs

These are designs from a "feature style" storyboard short I'm working on.  It's tentatively called "The Witching Hour" and is about a reformed wicked witch with anger issues trying to catch a cab on a rainy Halloween night.  She finds it especially hard to keep her composure when a bevy of beauties in tiny Halloween costumes turn out to be her competition.

A Beautiful lady for good measure:

I (loosely) based this off of a photo of Japanese model Jennifer Kurosawa.  Loved her pose.  Also I've been reading a ton of Scott Pilgrim comics, hence the anime-ish style.  Drawn with ink on paper, painted in photoshop.

Cafe Sketching in Various Locations

I've gotten more into cafe sketching over the past year, which adds an extra degree of fun to travel, and even makes Jury duty even more enjoyable.  Here is a smattering.

First, a batch from a recent trip to Seattle:
Both of these pages were filled at the Space Needle.

Next, a funny little sketch of a couple that my wife and I saw while having coffee at the Americana:
And finally, a fairly productive day spent doing my civic "doodley" at Jury Duty:
