Pumpkins '08

We got replacement pumpkins from the same stand upstate and finally got 'em both carved up this afternoon. They turned out better than I expected, considering they were fairly thick to cut through.

Demo Reel Updated!

So, I desperately needed to update my demo reel. I've had this amazing piece of music from Lalo Schifrin in mind to use, like, forever. I'm posting on Vimeo because they allow larger file sizes with somewhat better compression than youTube. You can also download the full-size, uncompressed version from there.

UPDATE - Credit list now up on my personal website.

Kathie Olivas and Obama '08 Show Openings

There were quite a few events happening this past Friday night in NYC, and the two we saw were well worth the time spent waiting in line.

First up was Kathie Olivas' stunning "Uninvited Guests" show at My Plastic Heart. Pretty much the entire show sold out and lots of people waited in line to get stuff signed. Brandt Peters was also there tagging sketchbooks. Additional photos here.

Next up was the incredible "Art + Action = Obama 08" Barack Obama Action Figure custom show at The Showroom NYC at Toy Tokyo. I wasn't one of the participating artists in this show, but I wish I was! There were many gorgeous pieces on display. The good news - due to overwhelming demand, the show has been extended until Oct 22th, so be sure to check it out if you get the opportunity! I've got plenty more shots up at this Flickr set.
