A brief time lapse of a work in progress. This painting was inspired by travelling on highway 101 and viewing the oregon coast from above. Much of my new work is inspired by water, and different approaches to depict this strong natural force.
A short film including time lapse of a visit to Japan in May 2013. Features the City of Kobe, Kyoto, and Hiroshima and Miyajima ropeway, maiko dancing, the Fushimi Inari Shrine, Narita Airport in Tokyo, and views from hotels set to an original score.
Video Still from my film in progress, nearly finished. Click on the image above to visit the film blog. Additionally, have a look at the official trailer here. I’ve been working on this 11 minute short film for over a year, making subtle changes and multiple edits, and am excited to be done.
I chose the year 2012 has been an impetus for me to complete a lot of my larger, more long-term projects, such as the graphic novel, Two Machines, which I spent several weeks earlier this year tidying up in Photoshop, re-editing some panels, as well as adding some fresh artwork to supplement the scope of the narrative. Both this film, and Two Machines are linked in the storyline, as parts of the graphic novel are loosely tied-in with the film. Publishing may come later down the road, but the work itself is complete. I’ve been working on some music projects and four new oil paintings, as well as designing quite a few textiles and flyers for a few clients. It has been immensely satisfying to complete these projects, as I am ruminating about a few future projects. These will less digital, and more tangible.
Experimenting shooting time lapse of flowers for compositing into a scene for the short film Sister Vengeance. Using a blue screen allows one to separate the image from the background, and insert the object into any scene. In this case, the object is a bundle of small flowers picked and suspended from the ceiling.
