Personal blog for an animation and game design student, illustrator, writer, and all around nice guy with a nack for telling stories. What you'll find here is my work....and pretty much whatever the hell else I want to put up.

My entry for Insomniac’s Sunset Overdrive Character Design Contest

If this bad boy wins, I get flown to Burbank, CA for a one day apprenticeship at Insomniac Games. Oh, and my design gets into the actual friggin game as dlc! 
Voting for best design begins August 25th over at www.polygon.com

Oh and thanks to the beautiful Taylor Stefanovicz for helping me with the design and coloring.

I like this article because it mentions the spiritual bodybuilding web site that my friend and I ran fourteen years ago. It was called RippedIn2000 and it was a lot of fun!

“Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. at her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened.”

My chest feels like it’s about to explode.
