Build Your Own Monster is Live

The more I play around with Flash, the more I enjoy it. I had far too much fun creating Build Your Own Monster today. I like the fact that I can build something ridiculous and post it up in one work day. Enjoy.

This is a Test

Working on updating the website, and figuring out how I'm going to present the Permutations series. Seeing as how I want to add to them over time, and they'll all be vector-based I just made a little Flash slideshow. Visit it here.

Kids love ULTRA

ULTRA the Multi-Alien is property of DC Comics

Just playing around, but after doing this I realized how many oddball DC characters are ripe for development of kid's properties. I mean, ULTRA the Multi-Alien is just so freaking weird. What six year old boy wouldn't love this? But as a company I can see how they would want to push their already successful brands versus starting up something from scratch.

Blog 2.0

Meet the backup blog. About half of the artists I like are on Livejournal, the other half on Blogger. So I created a blogger account to comment in their blogs easier and stake out more territory in the Blogosphere. Because, there is so much demand for my work I have to share.


So here's the deal with these Permutations: I'm trying to channel the same obsessive energy I had when I was a kid about drawing. I would sit down and churn out monster after monster or robot after robot, just to build a huge body of work to satisfy myself. I try not to spend too much time on one particular design, and if it's taking too long, shelve it and move onto something that pours out. Then, hopefully take all of these weird ideas and transform them into something more cohesive, a kids book, posters, animation, etc.
