Thesis Work

Here's a few more test images (made in '98 pre-"Nemo") from my currently defunct thesis film.


Here are some vampire characters I've been working on. Mixed media but mostly watercolor.

Bad Elephant

Yes... this actually did happen to me.

Eyvind Earle

This was a small watercolor pencil piece I did for Eyvind Earle as a thank you for his invitation to visit his workshop at home. He had a thing for pianos. Sadly he passed away less than a year later (July 2000). The last time I saw him was at his pre-84th birthday. I gave him a copy of my favorite Dr. Seuss book, The Lorax.

Mel Blanc, The Goonies, and Our 1st Anniversary

My wife stands in front of the "Time Bandit," a miniature pirate ship built for the film "Time Bandits" (and later used as the ship that sails off into the sunset in "Goonies") now used to tour Big Bear Lake in Big Bear, California. (Make sure to bring a sweater, jacket, hat, gloves, and thermals. It gets mighty cold!)

Our guide. She kinda reminded me of Anne Ramsey.

The best part of the tour was seeing Mel Blanc's old home where his son now lives (he comes out and waves at the boat if he happens to be home)
