In Honor and reverence of this Easter Holiday:
Thank you my Lord Jesus Christ for this wonderful day and the great cost that you paid for us to be free. Easter isn't about bunny rabbits, colored eggs, and peeps(lol), but it's about the life, death, and resurrection of one man who would ultimately change history. Easter is the day we remember that no matter who we are, what we've done, or what our culture ,says, or of our vast imperfections we can all change. Ever since I was young and I saw vast imagery of Jesus I knew in my heart that there was something about him. I'll never forget in his word that says :
"but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong", 1 Corinithians 1:27
Thank you God so much for saving my life and giving me and others a new life. If this post offends you I apologize but, it's my blog and his story touched my life.
I was born on August 5, 1982 and came into this world viewing these programs and films.
These while many photos are just a sample of what inspired me to go into the field of Animation.
It's crazy to look at these and see just how much they shaped my style. A common misconception is that my only influence is Anime, but as you can see Iwas inspired by so much more. I loved the works of Warner Bros., Hanna-Barbera, Walt Disney, MGM. The films of these companies touched my imagination just as much as television animation. I noticed after just reviewing my influences and looking at my artwork that I have a thing for either Cute characters or Heroic Characters. I think that's because with the majority of the cartoons of the 80's were made to sell toys. Which makes a lot of since.... oh well. Any hoo the 80's a was a wild time if you were a kid. Major networks (ABC,CBS,NBC, Fox) all had saturday morning cartoons and depending on the network or station an weekday afternoon block too. Man these were the days, I miss them. I'm going to go to the 90's next to see where an important shift takes place and effects my artwork and continues to forge my way to being a Visual Development artist.

Here is the last of the Mega Man openings. This was from Mega Man 8.
This was one of the best designed of the two cartoon versions I posted. This was very exciting and I loved the playful and fun design of the Mega Man characters. I'm sharing this because I want to post something about my influences as well as to make a commentary about Anime. That will be in the near future.

This like the hippest thing I own right now. Man I can't wait to worship Jesus with this new axe!
I remember when I saw the Obey campaign posters when I first started AAU in 2001. Man Frank has gotten huge since his beginings at Rhode Island school of design.
