Is it cute? Cuddly? Furry? Scaly? Monstrous? All of the above? I'll draw it! In fact, I'll make multiple drawings in sequence that, when viewed successively at 24 frames per second, could be called animated! 

I'm an artist who has been on a lifelong journey to bring life to the characters in my head and from genres I enjoy. It's been a long road, but thanks to the interwebz and accessible digital painting and animation software, I am finally able to pursue my dream of being a character animator with gusto. My animation heroes are Milt Kahl, Richard Williams, Don Bluth, and Glen Keane (to name a few)...I don't simply want to make things move, I want to give them the depth of character and emotional weight that these animation pioneers showed was possible. Why? Because through animation we can build wondrous new worlds and interesting characters, and tell stories that can still relate to the human experience.

Please consider becoming a patron and joining me on my quest to create. Your contributions will allow me more time to focus on my art as a full-time career, and to continue producing content that is well-made, entertaining, and meaningful.
