The Fang and the Feather
October 2, 2009

Last year, I was contracted by writer Sabina Spencer and producer Gary Kurtz to create production designs for a movie pitch based on Sabina's first book in her Purple Planet trilogy, The Fang and the Feather.

I was flown to London where I spent four days brainstorming with both Sabina and Gary, as well as animation director, Richard Bazley. When I returned home, I proceeded to create over a hundred color illustrations as well as dozens of black and white sketches inspired by Sabina's tale.

Purple Planet Productions has publicly released a few of the images I created, so I thought I'd add them to my on-line gallery. Click here to check them out.

Free Shipping Within the USA

September 27, 2009

We've done some modifications in our store's shipping rate structure. To start with, all orders within the USA (retail and wholesale) will now ship free of charge.

We've also modified the way we calculate shipping for our international customers, which should be much fairer. So, if there's an item you've been interested in, this might be a good time to get it!

On a side note, you might want to check out the Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet blog, where I'm retracing my history with shadow puppets in a series of posts.

A Juggling Act
September 13, 2009

Working at home, I've had to learn to manage my time really well in order to handle several projects at once while meeting my weekly deadlines.

A couple of weeks ago, I added yet another project to my plate. This one comes from Electronic Arts and when it was presented to me, I felt that it was such a good fit that I just had to do it no matter how busy I already was.

While working for EA, I'm still forging ahead on Flight 7 (page featured above) as well as creating animation for Fixed Fluid Fragmented.

I'm currently taking a break from our game (Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet) while we're negotiating a funding/publishing deal. Work on ITSP will resume soon and frankly, I can't wait, but at the same time, I'm glad to be able take a little breather in order to concentrate on my other exciting ventures.

Abstract Animation and ZED Update
August 23, 2009

Sometimes, I forget how much I love doing abstract art. My upcoming animated project, Fixed Fragmented Fluid, a collaboration with composer Barry Guy, will be purely abstract. I'm experimenting with technology and ideas. It's very exciting.

My 2.5 minute short film, Sensology, is now part of this larger work.

With my busy schedule something's gotta give. I'm sad to announce that I will be delaying ZED #10 until next year. The issue is roughed out and it's good - but it's also 32 pages, and it's the concluding issue of the story arc began in issue #1. I want to do a good job with it and in order to do that, I need time which I currently don't have.

I am, however, hoping to do a new chapter of The Saga of Rex in time for Flight Vol. 7.
