My greatest source of inspiration is always the real world, because reality is more bizarre than any thought that flutters through my head.

I swear I'm not making any of this up:

This lion headed fish sort of layed face down the entire time I was at my great aunt's house (which was, oh, about 5 hours). Yes, it was alive; I saw it swim around for a bit before embedding its face in the marbles again. Can fish be narcoleptic?

The fish in that tank were hugenormeous (about the size of my fist) but this guy was bigger than everyone else. You know how most fish swim by wiggling its tail? This guy is such a fat mess that he has to squirm his entire body to move foward, not that it moved much at all

Also, Happy Year of the Ox, everyone! I think I gained 5 lbs from all the food I've eaten today... oof!

Progress on that into animation for Wayang Outpost , an experimental SAT math program being developed at my school (of which I am the resident character animator)

This is one of those times where I regret not having spent enough time laying down the foundations for the characters (character model sheet). Oye!

I'm fameous!

A huge thanks to the Great Dan Inkeles for this! I need to save up for imdb pro to add my own profile picture!

Box Turtle

(not sure what the second turtle is, but the expression it's giving is priceless)

quite a punch!
the IMDB for The Incident at Tower 37 AKA UPRISING is now up!

...I'm not listed under there. I'm not sure if anim/paint fixer (I guess they used a matte painting I did too) qualifies to be listed up there with everyone else, but hey! The film's complete, and as far as I know, it's been sent off to film festivals (Good luck, Chris!)

I'm a sucker for those nature documentaries. I'd much rather watch Planet Earth than, say, something like The Happening or Mama Mia

Note how this thing punches, HOLDS the thing, and punches it. You ever see a kangaroo pick up another kangaroo by the neck with one paw and wail on its face with the other? I don't think so!

I mean, honestly! A lobster tail that can punch things REALLY hard! And those look like tiny axes! Who would ever think up of that? There's something about reality that makes it so completely bizarre and so much more fantastical than anything I could ever think up.
