Welcome to the O.R.
I’m a restless artist - always trying to reinvent myself. The older I get the more I seem to
be developing patience for intricate puzzles. Creating 2D animated shorts is like doing surgery
(but without the people dying part). I've never done surgery but I do watch Chicago Med.
Making static imagery is challenging no doubt, but single image making can only offer a limited return. There’s something very satisfying about producing hand drawn animation. When multiple images come together in the end they can have a surprising, satiating effect. Unlike any other art form.
This new site redesign is acting as my operating room where each project is a patient. Some need severe
attention -like a heart bypass or a transplant - while others just need simple sutures.
So pull up a chair, put on some scrubs, and watch this new doctor try to save some patients.
Either way, there will be blood.
