A lot has changed for me in 2013, including taking a full time job down in Georgia! I started freelancing back in 2008, mostly for Michigan studios and a couple others that are in Florida and Massachusetts. Over the years freelancing for the most part has been great and really fun. It can make your portfolio grow quickly with tons of different projects and styles in it, you get to meet people all over the country, and you learn different techniques that you can take with you project to project. For a while I thought I would always be freelancing, but that has changed.

In July I was offer a full time job down in Atlanta working for a studio called Floyd County, and it has been a blast! They are a bunch of talented, great individuals that constantly look to raise the bar. I am animating on the show they are known best for called Archer, which airs on FX. They also are working on getting several other shows off the grown including Chozen.

Here is a little promo trailer the studio for the new season!

 And here is a article from talking about the new season as well.

Though I'm full time at Floyd, I still try to take freelance projects from time to time when possible, and as always still working on my personal projects.

Living in Atlanta has been pretty cool so far. It is definitively different living here instead of the Mid West. There is so much to do and explore in Atlanta which is great. It also helps that I knew some people here before moving, including my buddy Carl who is the one that told me about the job opening at Floyd.

Over all I'm very happy I took this opportunity and moved down here. Sure being away from fam and friends sucks, but being able to wake up every day and do what I love is great. Another plus is not having to worry about lining up the next job while your working on the current one.

In the next couple of months I plan on posting some new art work for prints and personal projects that I'm working on and make sure to watch Archer Season 5 starting on January 13th. Thanks again for stopping by!

Update on The ARMSmasters Project

Hi all!

It has been a very long time since I updated this blog but I'm hoping to change that in the near future. I have a very big update coming up, but in the mean time here is update on The ARMSmaster Project.

We recently ran a Kickstarter fundraiser and reach our goal, which we give a big thanks to all the fans for their support :)! Since then, the Alpha Omega crew has been working hard on finishing a new trailer, which you can see a work in progress reel showcasing the work here or below. Its very exciting to see everything coming together. There is still plenty to do but we are definitely going in the right direction.

Here are some pictures from the conventions that we uploaded at our Tumblr and Blogger. Also at our Tumblr and Blogger you can see tons of art work from The ARMSMaster Project including finish and work in progress.

And to wrap up, here are some links you can follow The ARMSmaster Project at.

Thanks again to everyone for their support, we very much appreciate it! Stay tune for a update from me hopefully with in the month.

Escape From Planet Earth

Escape from Planet Earth was release in theaters today. I help convert it from 2D to 3D Stereoscopic with some of the same crew from Spy Kids 4. It was a fun film to work on, and from the footage I saw it seems like a exciting fun movie for families to see! Its kind of neat having done conversion on a few different films. Each one was a completely different process but the end had the same result.

New Website For The New Year

Finally got around to updating my website a few weeks ago. Completely revamped the site and redid my reel/portfolio. Big thanks to my friend Jay for the help with the site! Here is a sample page along with my latest reel.
