Storyboards and Animatics

Here are a few examples of storyboards I created for a feature length animated film titled "We Bombed in Baghdad". It is produced and directed by Scott Sublett of the SJSU Film and Theater Dept. The humor is irreverent and sometimes downright offensive as George W. Bush and Osama Bin Ladin compete for the attention of the world through the power of television!

Final room painting

Spent a good amount of winter break painting this image. It paid off in the end though. Mid-March I found out this piece was accepted into the Society of Illustrators Annual Student Show!!! It goes to show what a little hard work, a lot of research, iteration and sketching can do!

Children's Drawings

Some more drawings for the film.

Childhood images

Some ideas for a young boys art room, part of a story a group of us worked on last semester.

Figure Drawings

Some of the more memorable figure drawings from recent history

The Philippines

In April of 2006 I went on a lifechanging trip to the Philippines with my family. It was a first for all of us. My mother had not been back to the Philippines in 30 years. The world is a big place with many different modes of life and living. Here are a few of the more memorable images from my sketchbook.
