giraffro sculpture







this is basically the same story as below. i wanted to go for a nappy kinda sickly giraffro. this one took me about 20 hours... my lady friend and i went to walmart at 1 or 2 in the morning looking for something that we could use as a fro - nothing we found looked right, until we were checking out (we couldn't leave without anything so we bought orange juice and candy) and there was a bin full of 25 cent ear muffs. perfect. i cut that mofo up and stuck it to giraffro's beautiful head.

boxer in briefs






this is a sculpture i did. my roommate noticed it was a boxer... in briefs! thus it is called 'boxer and briefs' - i enjoyed making it. basically i just screwed in a wire frame armature to the piece of wood, covered it in foil, and went from there. i started with the head and worked my way down (it took me about 45 hours) - i think the hardest thing about it was committing to bake it, because after that there aren't many changes that you can make

i was recently contacted by julian acosta, a director, who was looking for a little help with a commercial spec that he was doing for under armour... i met with him in the local library after he did a presentation about film making and we discussed some of what he was looking for: i wasn't quite sure what to expect because i wasn't familiar with his work - but upon seeing the stuff he had shot and composited i loved it. it's hip and also artsy (but not weird artsy) which i'm a big fan of... but even more than that, it has a modern/efficient feel to it. i like that. a lot. so i was psyched to help out. we basically shot ideas off each other through email, and came to a final piece. i only did the logo (in my most preferido program, after effects). julian did great work with the shots - i took what he provided for reference (the color corrected shots) and kinda composited it how i imagined it in my head... this is not the whole commercial spec (and as mentioned earlier, different than how julian does the spec)... check out his site for it (http://www.j-four.com)

rough skate title stuff

video

this is a rough rough draft of a sequence i am doing for a documentary by rose card called 'turn it around' - it's about a girl skater down in vegas... i still need to clean a few things up and figure out what the words are (i used 'skate' as a proxy space holder) and get those included ----- the long black screen is space in case some credit type things or a quote needs to go there

this is a little midterm project that i am working on: the picture is compliments of one of my favorite artists, ragnar - the music is compliments of the gym class heroes. i was messing around with displacement maps and thought that it would be pretty tight if i could bring an illustration to life... there are a couple kinks to work out - but i admit, i am a little impressed.
