Here's some old pages from a sketchbook I used to keep. This is back when I was using color and quoting Black Sabbath. I used to be pretty rockin' back then. Special thanks to Alaina Lincoln who found, scanned and emailed these to me. Enjoy!
Well it's official! I'm a graduate from the Center For Cartoon Studies! Oh YEAH! Not only that but my entire class graduated which is a first for the school. So all in all we rocked the CCS thesis year! The graduation ceremony was on Saturday and it was spectacular. There was dancing, laughing, crying, a beautiful speech from Francoise Mouly and a diploma designed by Aaron Reiner. Here's a video of the entire ceremony. It was quite a whirlwind of emotions and even now it's hard to believe I'm done at CCS. It's truly a sad but joyous time in my life. Here's some photos my work being showcased at the school.
Also my classmate Josh Kramer has taken the liberty of setting up a blog about our senior showcase. Be sure to check out everyone's artwork. It's all great! As of right now I have several different projects on the horizon but am taking a little time off to relax. But I'll soon be posting some new doodles and old sketchbook pages. So stay tuned!
BZZOW! My thesis project for CCS is finally complete! After 9 months of writing, drawing and packaging I'm finally done! Phew! For my project I decided to package the first two issues of Grump Toast in cardboard toasters! I constructed these out of recycled beer and cereal boxes. Then I wrapped em' up in aluminum foil. It was a process that took 3 days of carboard insanity. Ingenious? Maybe. Frustrating as all holy Hell to make? Oh indeed. But it was all worth it! Check it...
