i want to have lots of kids

i had a nice conversation with a friend co-worker of mine. she asked if i wanted kids. i said yes, when i'm ready, that is. later, i strolled upon this here video trying to find cool bass guitar clips. now i absolutely want kids...BADLY...preferably a British one. how could you say you don't???

a disney sculpture...

this is a character from "The Aristocats", you know, the old guy that's like 100 years old. we get a chance to have a simple class to do tis sort of thing. kinda awesome. this is about 4 hours of work, so lots left to do. in case you didn't know, the scene we're studying from is one of Milt Kaul's. the drawing is totally appealing...so i have to try and grab that. kinda difficult, but it's on its way there. cheers friends.

honk if you want to kiss me!!!

hi friends. i did my first oil painting yesterday. i guess it's called plein air painting. took bout 1hr 30mn, something like that. twas freakin fun, the most fun i've had, art wise, in a long time. it's nothing AMAZING but i rather like it...has a good mood...

this is something i did super fast. the photo i took on a road trip back from Missouri with my bro and sis. again, nothin CRAZY, just some fun...

hands. i love hands. the first one is my grandpa's hand. it looks evil don't it. but it really aint. he's a farmer with one arm. the one he has left looks like this. the next one is my sister. she was feeding a cow, pulled it out of the mouth and had gross goo attached to it. i think i captured it pretty good. had to use my slick manual focus agility to get it in time...she didn't like the way the slime felt.

anyways, cheers friends...xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxxx honk if you want to kiss me!!!

it's a devil...

for some reason i enjoy the idea of evil rising to power...in a drawing that is! the concept of something, a situation, a character so dark that it makes me feel a bit of discomfort. maybe i'm crazy, i don't know. but, this was something for an assignment we had to do involving textures. the evil thing's scales was roof shingles, the sky involved crazy waves from the ocean, and the rocks were cave textures mixed together. it was fun...so onto doing another one. hurray...cheers...

oh, if you want, come up with a story for this one too and let me know. i've got some ok ones brewing...

p.s. i know this picture doesn't show it exactly, but i love my family and friends. life is good for me at the moment and i really can't complain. i hope those of you who have that evil thing rising from the dark depths within, well i hope you can look to the bright side of life and get rid of that nasty thing. thank you God.

hurrrraaaaa for characters...

so, today i got a chance to talk to my mentor, mike gabriel, a little more. can't wait to learn from this great guy. to give you an idea on his abundant visionary skills, he directed the totally awesome short, "Larenzo", a while back (hasn't been released yet). i new it existed, and i really wanted to see it, so he happily showed it to me. GREAT! so f'n cool man. it's been a pretty good day. i am so blessed with everything. i'm hungry! enjoy these characters...that you'll probably never see in a Disney film.

hello hello hello

hi everyone. it's been a while...again. i'm so naughty. well, i won't tell you bout my life much, blah blah. lot's has happened though, new and interesting things. i had my first week at Disney as a Visual Development trainee. so far so good. my mentor is Mike Gabriel (a great guy!) and i'm looking forward to what i'll be working on with him. this first week i had few different classes leaving me with lots of time to get used to my work area, cintiq, and just enjoying my freedom of painting what i want. my freedom will lessen as time goes on, but it's been great up to tis point. it's sounds kinda snooty saying i'm in "visual development", so i'm just a guy who draws there. these are the things i did so far. the bar one i did before, but didn't get a chance to finish...cheers, enjoy friends...

attempting satisfaction...

its hard to be satisfied with life or just ok with it...i think going outside and getting fresh air helps a bit. maybe healthy clean air would be better, an area away from most city places. these are just a couple guys working on that. this is actually one of my goals as well...give myself time to think. cheers!

SO...it has been a long'ol time since I've touched this thing. I am so so sorry to all of you who enjoy checking this dump of a site out. Let me just tell you in brief that this was one heck of a year...SO INCREDIBLY ROUGH!!! As much as I want to go into specifics I don't think I will...for your sake. But, this is my final film from from my final year at cartoon college (CalArts.) I really really hope you enjoy it. Also, check out some of my portfolio work if you want that is on my link called PVose Portfolio. Some of it you may have seen before...

Anyways, CHEERS! Please feel free to leave me a comment, whether it be super nice or super mean one! I hope there's more to show and talk about in the future.
