I started a new job today. I'm a storyboard revisionist on Dreamworks' Trolls: The Beat goes on! I'm been doing character design for the past couple of months which is cool but I'm excited to get back into storyboards. It's been too long storyboard pro! I have missed you! 

Here are some quick drawings of Branch and Poppy I did so that I could get a feel for the characters and their world. 

I'm excited to get back into storyboarding. I love drawing so much I'm looking forward to doing ten million silly drawings. I'm hoping to continue to work hard and learn a lot.

Bye Abc Mouse

Yesterday was my last day working at ABC Mouse. Age of Learning was a my first industry gig. I was brought on as a storyboard revisionist in 2014, became a storyboard artist and then a character designer in 2018. I stayed on for four years and worked on two animated projects there. I met a ton of cool and talented people while I was there. 

OKAY so when I took this picture I didn't know it was going to be my ID Photo that's why I look like that. 
I’m really grateful for the experience I have gained here in story and design as well as the friends I have made here along the way. B-Y-E! Bye! See you later!

Love these guys!

Is this an ice cream cone? No, this is Patrick.

I got Sponge Bob on the brain. Maybe because Summer is coming?
I had some downtime while waiting for notes to come back. I did this animation in only a few hours in Adobe Flash. Only a quarter of the time I feel like i spent on my last animation. I'm not sure if Flash is just easier to use compared to TV Paint or maybe I'm just a stronger animator now.

I don't remember why I drew this. I think I was talking to my friend about how its probably difficult to design characters with large wings because they would block shots and Disney's Gargoyles was smart for doing the "wing cape" thing. Also Dragons just have so many details on them. Anyway here is a villain.
