    I did some work for Junction Point on their Epic Mickey project-Heres one of my concepts theyve posted for promotion-Check out the article here.
    Theyre an awesome group of guys with amazing talent and the game is going to twist Mickey Mouse in a pretty dark and radical way. I cant wait.

    I dont get a chance to do much life drawing but everytime I do I really enjoy it. These are sketched with a ball point pen and toned digitally.

    Waitress at Bonedaddies. After lunch my buddy Paul and I had to make some sketches. It was difficult at first, painting with a broken heart, but I think I got the hang of it.

    Disney/Junction Point

    Posted By on March 2, 2008

    After four years away its back to the Mouse House for me. It was never something I would have expected, but the projects they have in the works out here are just too exciting to pass up. A couple weeks ago I started as Lead Concept Artist at the Disney owned studio Junction Point right out here in Austin.

    Quite a few years ago Disney hired me as a trainee (fresh out of Art Center) to work on the animated feature Pocahontas. I stayed ten years and worked on seven feature films! It was an amazing opportunity- I had the chance to work with some of the best artists in the business- Peter Clarke, Robh Ruppel, Paul Felix, John Puglisi, Tracy Lee, Armand Serrano, Scott Caple, Colin Stimpson and Kevin Nelson…just to name a few. Its an amazing feeling to be returning- though now ill be working on the video game end of things.

    I cant say anything about the project yet- hopefully Ill be able to post some stuff soon as things get released. Trust me…Its going to be awesome. In the meantime, heres a couple more things I did recently while at Spacetime working on the Blackstar project.



    Blackstar

    A few more concepts from the Blackstar project.

    Blackstar

    Posted By on January 25, 2008

    Ive got a ton of new gaming art to post that ive been working on over the past year. Here are a few from Spacetime Studios’ Blackstar project. They are an awesome bunch of guys to work with.



    Treasure Planet

    Posted By on January 5, 2008

    Heres a concept art piece I did for the Disney movie Treasure Planet. This was the last LA production I worked on before I moved out to Florida to work on Brother Bear.

    Flash

    Posted By on November 28, 2007

    I have a secret passion….FLASH! Its increadibly fun for doing graphic style vector animation. I did tons of this stuff over the last few years and its a blast. These were done for my friend Les Sweetow over at www.animatedworks.com. Typically I would design characters and backgrounds and then someone with animation ability would bring it all to life. These were supposed to be in kind of a retro 60s Shag style.



    Grimm

    Posted By on November 8, 2007

    This is a piece I did way back when at Art Center. Its based a Grimms’ fairy tale- A girl is lost in the woods and the trees all around her come to life. Grimms’ fairy tales are a great source of inspiration for me when im at a loss for ideas.

    Croks

    These are two concept pieces I did for my friend Paulo Alvarado while at Project Firefly. Hes an amazingly talented guy and it was a blast to work with him.

    More Brother Bear

    Heres a few workbook sketches from Brother Bear, since nothing new is worth posting…

    I Will

    Posted By on September 24, 2007

    This is a storyboarded concept I did while working at Project Firefly. I was given free reign to board an animation short that would function as a music video for a band we were working with. I was given the music to work from, the only requirement being that the short would fit within the space of the song.

    My idea was based on watching my daughter play with her toys. She seemed to invent whole worlds of characters and situations while playing with her dolls alone in her room. She had an amazing ability to immerse herself in this make believe world where her dolls became real people.

    In my short, a grown woman returns to the room that she grew up in, and for a moment is able to reenter that childhood world of fantasy and imagination. At the end the toy box is closed and she leaves the room behind.

    After pitching this idea the producer who had commisioned the short just stared at me blankly, uncomprehending. Needless to say this is as far as the project ever got.

    Brother Bear

    Posted By on September 21, 2007






    These are a few concepts for the film Brother Bear. The tough thing about this project was to get all the required realism but make it feel like a special unique world at the same time. It was one of my favorite projects at Disney.

    New Groove stuff

    alt=”"id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5112578336624494402″ />

    Heres a batch of development concepts I did for the Disney movie Emporers New Groove, specifically for the dark jungle sequence. Although I love working digitally now there was something really fun about traditional pencil sketching….

    From Beyond

    Posted By on September 8, 2007





    A while age some Disney friends and I got it in our minds to do an animated adaptation of H.P Lovecraft’s short story “From Beyond”. The project didnt get very far along but it was a lot of fun doing these character concepts- The conservative looking guy (who bears a resemblance to lovecraft) is the narrator, and the crazy looking old man is Crawford Tillinghast.

    Thomas was transfixed by Halloween H20- one of the rare moments when he was holding still enough to paint

    Posted By on July 24, 2007



    First blog! Ive been painting at lunch with the Spacetime concept crew. These are my first laptop life paitings. It takes some getting used to but its a lot of fun and really saves on set up and clean up time…Im looking forward to doing a lot more of these.
