Chihuaraffe, Squid Kong & Polly-cat

A few years back, I worked at ILM as a story artist on the (later cancelled) CGI FRANKENSTEIN project, directed by Dave Carson & Brent Maddock. In 1998 I tried my hand at creepy creature design, but was ultimately betrayed by my goofy cartoonist roots.. I knew that in the early days of any animated movie it is not uncommon [READ MORE…]

Bosco, Derek and I [READ MORE…]

In my spare time I continue to fiddle about on my website, and have begun to build an alternate site for my personal stuff. It is still a work in progress but you can check it out at www.nervebomb.com. Bear in mind that there will be some repetition of artwork; I’m still figuring out the navigation. I am still working [READ MORE…]

Nerve Bomb Preview #1

A 12 page preview from NERVE BOMB Issue Zero (published in 2001) starring Rocket and the Professor; SAN FIASCO’s favourite crime fighting team! These few intro pages to the story were a total mad-scramble. I had misunderstood the printer’s due-date, and suddenly realised that I had days rather than weeks to finish my book. It was not ideal but I [READ MORE…]

Rocket & The Professor

Here are the main characters from my recently published NERVE BOMB comic book: Rocket Rabbit and his best friend and inventor, The Professor. They are a pair of roguish skallywags who’ve become professional heroes working in the bayside city of San Fiasco. I am still figuring out their entire backstory but I am very much enjoying that exploration, filling sketchbooks [READ MORE…]

Mad World

When not watching the horrifying TV News just like everyone else, I’ve been working for PIXAR doing some freelance storyboarding. Just prior to that I was doing a little concept work for Wild Brain. Website fiddling continues as before. I’m trying to learn how to use Javascript now.

Website Fiddling

For the past few weeks I’ve been reworking my website after having messed it up by some unqualified fiddling about. Hopefully it is a little simpler now, and I’ve reduced the file sizes of a lot of the art so that it will load quicker. I’m almost done with the resizing, and I’ve begun to add some new pieces. Currently [READ MORE…]

Comic-con 2001!

The big push to get our comics finished for the San Diego Comic Con 2001 Convention is finally Over. We managed to sell a few at our Maverix booth down there. It was very gratifying experience for us to have a table instead of traipsing about showing our folios to uninterested editors. Showing our comics to uninterested fans was much [READ MORE…]
