*wiping the dust off my tumblr* Whoo boy it’s been a while huh? Well the last episode of Live Free Eat Fresh bombed, oh well dem’s da breaks! Never you fear though, I’ve started on a new 101 submission for October 25. This time I teamed up with long time bro Lars. Look forward to more posts!
Today is my good animator chums birthday. We’re neck deep in Live Free Eat Fresh Episode 2 production so I can’t do anything to celebrate with him.
So here’s a gif he made of our first time meeting in public. Who would have known 3 years later he’d be sleeping in a cardboard box our apartment.
Happy birthday, you beautiful strong latina, you.
Normal updates will resume once I’m done with this next cartoon. WE WILL MAKE IT IN TIME? WHO KNOOOOOOOOOOWSSSSS
I was scrolling through my old files and I found this forgotten little gem. For those uninitiated this was a 10 page intro for a comic project I’ve wanted to do for years called DIRT.
These pages are almost 4 years old at this point. Yeesh. I’d say “ONE DAY I’LL GET BACK TO IT” but that’s basically hammering a nail in the coffin, so instead I’ll just say it’s probably still my favorite project, and I’d still like to do something with it.
Sure Guardians of the Galaxy is an all around pleasing, spectacular, with fun visuals and charming characters. But I think we all know what everyone is REALLY waiting for. Live Free, Eat Fresh episode 1 can be seen here and here! It’s ANIMATION-

I liked one of my sketches enough to colors. Trying some lighting stuff.
Taking a break from LIVE FREE EAT FRESH production and doing something a little self indulgent! Gator Girls in Veitnam… or Afghanistan. The outfits are a little conflicting. Her name might be Louise E Anna. BECAUSE FUCK I LOVE PUNS
Also it’s my birthday. Everyone make a big deal about it okay?
good jorrb felaz, once again.
It’s weird to think that a show about Subway can have fan art. The world is a magical magical place.
So that cartoon I’ve been talking about has been posted. YOU’D BETTER BELIEVE THE HYPE BROOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Anyways, I can’t take credit for how lovely the animation is, my roommate and pal-io took care of that, making things WAY nicer than I asked.
I mostly handled Keyframes, Background paintings, compositing, the little typography subway advertisement, the claymation, directing voice actors, editing the footage and audio, and all around justifying my role as creative leader. Mostly the sort of extra flair. I also wrote the damn thing BUT IT’S NOT LIKE THE WRITER OR BACKGROUND DESIGNER EVER MATTERS.
Also the voice actress, Meredith Michalojko, was a fantastic get! Very enthusiastic and brought the character so much more charm than we expected. SUCH MAGIC.
Just a few of the backgrounds from my animated short for Channel101! Screening this Saturday July 26 at 8pm!
For those who noticed I’ve been fairly quiet. Animating and doing the background design for a 5 minute short in two weeks is exhausting. Especially when you snort as much cocaine as I do. Anyways, I’ll be posting a lot more actively now that it’s done.
Fun note: Each painting done in 1 hour or less.
My Channel 101 pilot was just confirmed! If you live in the Los Angeles area come by the Downtown Independent Theater this saturday at 8:00 pm and see me and my roommate Julian’s crammed and stressed masterpiece for yourselves! Say hi! Throw acid in my face! Whatever you want!
Animation smears from a project my roommate Julian and I finished recently!
Animation is art.
'Cause I'm busy, busy, shockingly busy, you've no idea what I have to do~

Today I got to meet with Saul Blinkoff who has worked on a lot of Disney projects! It was fantastic meeting him and getting feedback. I whipped up these color keys last night as practice for Batter Up! (that comic I keep mentioning) as examples.
I’ve got an animated project coming up this month, and should have some pages to show soon! It’s very very exciting.
