    Animated Logos

    Been taking some logo designs that I’ve done over the years and experimenting with some animated logos. No character design, but a lot of the same principles apply; anticipation, squash & stretch, follow through… Really fun to work on and the possibilities and varieties are endless. Below is a montage I put together along with […]

    Toons Drivin’ Cars

    So this was an interesting project with a very tight deadline. We’re talking a day, Yikes!

They wanted to be turned into […]

    Real Objects & 2D Animation

    Lately I’ve been taking real objects and combining them with 2D flat animation. Below are a few animated tests and screen grabs.

    Photoshop Animation

    I’ve been working in Flash for so long, I never really gave the animation tools in Photoshop a try. The past year or so, I’ve been diving into frame by frame animation using Photoshop and I got to say, I love it. I have two draw backs with it though. First, video timeline allows for […]

    Jungle Critters

    I had the opportunity to work on a bunch of juvenile themed character art. Very different style than I’m used to do, but fun none the less. Below is just one theme and a few samples. I hope to post more later.

    Animated Pencil Tests

    Well it truly has been a while. Almost two years ago I took an Art Director position which meant my personal animation projects and site took a back seat. The good thing is, I’ve managed to keep up with my character design, which I hope to post soon. However, lately I’ve had some time to […]

Studio Bumper

What began as a desire to explore some frame by frame silly walks led to an usual studio bumper. All animation was done in Photoshop and then compiled in After Effects. The audio is something I messed around with in Garageband where I simply put various beats and sounds effects together. Below you can see […]

Spring Hill Development

This is the second year that I’ve had the opportunity to develop an intro character themed animation for Spring Hill Camps in Michigan. The camp puts on these weekly skits so each character in the animation is acted out onstage by live actors. I’m hoping to get some photos to share of the actors portrayed […]
