So what do you know about “Paperman,” that new Walt Disney Animation Studios production which was recently nominated for a Best Animated Short Oscar? Well, you may have heard that this mostly black-and-white film uses a new technology, which Disney senior software engineer Brian Whited created to merge CG and hand-drawn animation. Or that this 7 minute-long film (which was helmed by John Kahrs, a first-time director) is kind of an urban fairytale. In that it recounts one man’s desperate efforts to attract the attention of a beautiful young lady in the skyscraper directly across the way.
But unless you caught “Wreck-It Ralph" during its theatrical run, you haven’t yet had the chance to see Paperman in its entirety. Not ‘til today, that is. Which is when I present an exclusive piece of Disney magic, the online premiere of this Academy Award-nominated animated short.
Now don’t let this charming, deceptively simple-looking film fool you. Though Paperman may have a limited color palette (i.e. grey, white, black & red), the sky’s the limit when it comes to the innovative technology that actually made this animated short possible. Which brings the expressive & organic feel of traditional hand-drawn Disney animation to the CG world.
Started back on a comic I was doing back in high school/middle school. Pretty much just for fun and a little something to keep my drawing skills up on the side so that I don’t get rusty. This is the page I uploaded today. It’s a giant crossover story, so I’ll get the chance to draw in a ton of different styles, so that’ll be good practice. Anyway, here’s a link if any is interested in starting over from the beginning.
Only about a chapter and a half are uploaded now, but I already had 20+ chapters drawn out back in high school, so the story is pretty much set already. I just need to redraw them with my current level and upload them.

A fair warning…since I had already started this in high school, the art in the first 1 1/2 chapters will be pretty sub-par. Halfway through Chapter #2 it picks up.
I could go to bed….but I mean c’mon Hey Arnold has a Japanese dub.
Still working on that Stillborn project with my good buddy Zach! With the new scanner, I’ll be able to upload more art for it. So here’s some storyboards I drew up the other day!
Baby got back
i drawz good
Met with Zach today and finished up nearly all the voicework for “Stillborn” episode 1! With this, we can finally start getting the animation underway! I worked on the backgrounds of one scene, and I’m going to be working on some more detailed storyboards in the comings weeks to plot out the animation better! This is really coming along, so stay tuned!
Also, we recorded all the lines for a less serious parody I thought of the other day. It’s…pretty stupid, but hopefully it’ll turn out well!
This Summer is turning out to be more productive than I could have ever hoped for!
Here’s the “Stillborn” title card!
Garfield meets Silent Hill? Idk what am I even doing anymore but at least I laughed.
What is this place?
