Big news! I just accepted a job offer with an amazing animation and motion graphics studio in Kansas City! We'll be packing up the fam and heading north...errr....northwest at the end of February! The name of the studio is Dimension X Design (DXD) and they've done some amazingly cool work! Click on the screen grab to visit their website! I'll actually be starting earlier than our move so the next few weeks are going to be pretty busy. I'll keep the blog updated with more information as it develops!

The most recent spot that I've done was a 30 second commercial for a new wireless chat device called a Zipit. I created this in conjunction with DV3 Productions based in Wilimington, NC. My responsibilities included design, illustration, modeling and animation. The commercial is currently airing on Nickelodeon and was also featured on AdWeek's website.

I just ran across a new forum for Cinema 4d artists called 3d Attack. They have a weekly speed modeling challenge and I thought I'd try my hand at it. This week's topic was to model a walkie talkie in less than 5 hours. I came in at 4 hours for mine which included modeling, texturing and lighting.
