Oragutan Film Development

I've been researching and designing orangutans for a short I'm thinking of doing. I got super inspired from the Orangutans at the LA Zoo, especially Bruno and Berani. I wanted to really animate these orangutans as orangutans and not humans with animal suits on. So, I've been spending a lot of time observing and researching. Though, I stopped in the middle of development (spending time to work on CG animation, which I am throughly enjoying actually). Here is a collage of some of the work I've been doing for it.

1-16-10 Bennies Birthday in Santa Monica

Here are sketches I did. I've been working on pushing the boundaries of my comfort zone with my drawing; be lose, care-free, and have fun with it. It's an unedited account of my adventures in Santa Monica for my friend's birthday.

Btw, the image below is a Picasa link, so click on it and you'll be redirected to all the others.

Some More Drawings

Here are more drawings I did as a Christmas presents to my family:

This one is of my Sister. She just started here first year at college, Loyola Marymount University. It's pretty much what I would like to believe she's like at school.


This one is of my brother, Jesse, his girlfriend, Janice, and his two labs, Jax and Hailey.


And lastly, my Mom and Dad at home with my sister's cat, Creampuff, in the back.

Christmas Gifts

So, Christmas is here, which means a lot of friends, family, food, gift receiving and, of course, gift giving. For the monetarily challenged this could "present" (get it) a problem. Luckily, for us artistic folk, we have the option of creating our own gifts; in the hopes that the gift receiver will understand that a gift that was made is more meaningful than a gift that was bought. At least, that is my excuse and I'm sticking with it!

So, here are drawings I did. One, for my roommate, Ben Adams, and his girlfriend, Alyssa. We went all out in decorating our place and the drawing is inspired by what our patio looks like at night.
The other, is for Alyssa's friend, Spencer, who has now become my friend, Spencer. We watched Jurassic Park together and discovered one of her dreams in life is to have her very own baby velociraptor.

I have more to come which will be posted on a later date.
