Watercolor Is My New Time Killer

I find watercolor much more difficult than oil painting. But sometimes you hit on something with watercolor that just takes your breath away. I aspire to the likes of Alvaro Castagnet (go look him up, seriously) and John Singer Sargent. Maybe in 20 years I'll get there.

Godlike Athlete Serena Williams

Sketches always seem to lose something when you scan them. But I was fairly happy with how this likeness turned out. Fairly timely too! Serena Williams is looking good to win the finals at Wimbledon.

Self Portrait in Gouache

I finally tried my hand at gouache, painting a subject that would be forgiving if I screwed up. But it turned out better than I hoped. Interesting medium.

Roades on the Road

One big thing that has occupied the last half-year of my life has been a venture to create an entertaining and informative travel/outdoors Youtube brand. My wife and I took a long 4+ month roadtrip across the United States this summer, documenting as much as we could with video, writing, and photographs. Thus 'Roades on the Road' was born.

Along with our travel documentaries, we review gear and share tips for outdoor activity. Coming from a decidedly un-wealthy perspective, this often yields interesting and funny results.

I could talk all day about the trip, the process of filming and editing, social media use, and every other little thing that is involved with a big project like this, but I think it's best, for now, to let it speak for itself!

Of course you should thumbs up, subscribe, and share with all your friends! I'll be happy to field any questions you have as well!

Top 10! I Cracked the Top Ten!

In October's 11 Second Club, I got tenth place out of 144 entries for this animation. My first entering the contest in a couple years. An indie director is having trouble with some of his more... re-animated actors.

Adams County Public Library: Your Ticket To Anywhere

Before I left the library I wanted to leave them with a strong and appealing marketing framework to jump off of.  On my own time I developed the "Your Ticket To Anywhere" campaign through a few animations that incorporated fantastic scenes that gave way to library logo. They were all done in After Effects and I think turned out really well. Enjoy!
