When I’m home, mostly in my tiny studio, there is always music playing. A variety of “genres” sometimes in languages I can’t understand – doesn’t matter. If my inner Self, Spirit, Soul, what ever you want to call it, if it dances I listen. Because I like my music loud, I use a headset. The less I hear of the outside world the better.
The playlist below is my current accompaniment.

I drew this cartoon a while back that I wanted to paint using Photoshop – changed my mind, going to make it using ZBrush. Below is the beginning.

Mushroom Hill

Years back I attended animation classes at East Los Angeles College. One of the results was an animation short that I conjured for an assignment. I titled it “Mushroom Hill.” I kept it simple. Three characters. One good, one bad and a victim. I went as far as making a stick figure animatic-an animated storyboard.
For a while now I’ve been wanting a puppet so I have decided to bring “Mushroom Hill” to life. I will start by building the set, the hill and the mushroom. Here is my animatic.
