The New Att....

Well this is my new piece I did for Individual Collective's show at Umpaqua Bank in Vallejo,Ca
which will be tommarow at 6pm-8pm. I took my painting in and guess who I saw... CREATURES OF THE MIND!!!! (aka JR/Dyno and Adrian) Yeah we we're turning our stuff in for the show. I still got to find a hanger for my paintin.... man I haven't painted in Acrylic in years I got totally re-inspired after painting today!


I went to Pixar foooo!!!

Yeah thanks to my home boi kanishka, I got to visit Pixar and got an awesome tour of the studio.
I only got to see half of it because of their production scedule. I got to see all the concept art for Wall.E! It was beautiful to see all that goes into their films. Got to give a shout out to my new friend Doug Doogley a Pixar animator who gave us the tour. He and Kan go back to that animation mentor..... I got to see some folks from my AAU past like Hasia Sroat and my friend Willie a sick artist I knew from AAU who's rockin' out at Pixar. Well now that I've seen the place I'm going to apply there for work. For a long time since high school, I never thought about working at pixar cause I wasn't into 3-D animation/ I didn't think I was good enough/ wasn't my direction at the time but, seeing the artist works on Wall.E inspired me to believe and have faith that I have a shot. It was wild! I even did the can can with Sully!!!

Back to you... Dreamgirl...

Hi all how are you out there! It's been a long time.... I shouldn't have left you.. without a dope piece to step to! Ha ha, Here's so mo' CG studies of that illustrious dream girl I made. I have a comparison up top for yallz to peep. The 2 new versions are a different tecnique used by many of the classic image colorists. You can peep the difference between these two and my first. The first one is more painterly and loose while this one is controlled and gradated. Please tell me what you think cause I just practicing. More is on the way.

The Call.....

Man something Big happened today! I called a studio looking for address for their company to send a portfolio to them. 2 of my animation heroes work for this certain company. Well I called them over the weekend and they didn't get back to me. So I called today, talked to their secretary and she took my information and gave it to a supervisor. He called me 20mins later.. we talked. I introduced myself , stated my position, and asked for an address to their company. He told me they weren't looking for anyone at the moment and he was pretty stand off about answering my questions. He asked about my experience, where I was from, and if I believed that my work was up to par with the likes of their artists of which I said calmly " Yes". He paused for a second and surprised me with asking for my website and email and he said if they like me they'll think of using me as a freelance artist for their company. I was excited but, I was especially nervous! I didn't think he would want to see my website so quickly! I'm praying that this will work out, God's opening doors.... Please pray for me and this new opportunity friends!

For some reason I really connected to his song since I first heard it. If only I could give a thousand appologies for all that I've done wrong.

Dat NU XMEN show is pimp!

Dudes and Ladies, check this link out to the trailer for the new Wolverine and the X-Men show coming out soon. This looks like more of a sequel to the 90's X-men series rather than an update on X-Men: EVO. Steven Gordon worked on this so it 's going to be hot!


A Prayer Request for a close friend...

Hey All. Mo' art is on the way but I gotta get this off my heart.
I'm just giving at shout out to my homie from NY and fellow artist Marcus "TRDMRC"B. who is on location in England because his Father died a week ago of Cancer. My prayers are going out to him and his familia. Please drop a line and check out his music inspired by his father at this link:

Thank you and God bless you all for visiting.

"Jesus please bless Marcus and his family and strengthen and inspire
them through their hurts with the loss of Mr.B. "
