Collidea-Penguin


everyone at collideascope was supposed to make a penguin of themselves to go onto a christmas card. I was late, because i'm awesome like that, but i did one anyway. Maybe it'll make it in, maybe it wont. who knows. it was fun either way. good times were had by all.

Gigapig!



This character and all the following ideas are the stemmed entirely from hearing what Mike said wrong. I heard gigapig, but I guess he said something different. This is what came to mind.

Hallo-what?


This was a project I regrettably didnt have the time to finish this year, but i still thought it was pretty neat.

Happy belated halloween, everyone.

Heroes in a Half Shell

I can't stop drawing ninja turtles.
But hey, its not my fault they're so awesome.



Haven't done any harbor hobos stuff lately. I probably will soon, but then again, I always say that.

Thats all for now. Have a day.

The Terror!

The Enemies of freedom mixed with some sort of physical augmentation is a terrifying notion indeed.
Below are quick drawings of your worst nightmares. be afraid.

Oh yeah, and they may or may not be possible harbor hobo villains.





for the most part, they were an excuse to try out my new markers, but I scared myself with the thought of being ruled by radioactive nazis and/or communist masters of the dark arts. let your noggin process that for a bit. if youre not afraid, you should be.

I've been drawing more lately that i have been for the past while, so theres a chance that the frequency of posts will go up.

Thats all for now.
You folks have youresleves a nice weekend! Y'all come back now, ya hear?

The Yuriycast

Ok, so this isnt a drawing of mine, but we had a coming up with it. To you guys, it might seem like a "you had to be there" kind of humor, but its kinda short anyway, so check it out.

Have fun in Toronto, buddy.

Harbor Hobos Part 2

Here's the second guy. This design was a bit rushed, so he might be switched up later, but you get the gist of it.
More to come eventually. I'm going to have a team of 3 to 5, then I'll start working on villains.

harbor hobos Part1

Ok, so heres the deal. a while ago, we had a drawing challenge at the studio about what would happen if you fell in the ridiculously polluted Halifax harbour. Soon thereafter, i was heckled by a hobo on my way to the bus, and it just clicked: a team of hobos that fell into the harbor and got superpowers. The harbor hobos are going to be developed over the next while, and then I'm either going to start a short comic, or an animated short, depending on the time I have free.


This is the first one. I don't quite have a name for him yet. I'm setting up a back story as I go along. I'll put more designs and whatnot up as soon as i have them done.

I'm not dead, just busy

Ok, so i havent updated in a couple months. I'm a busy guy. I havent really done much new stuff, so i guess i'll have to give you couple bits of filler, old sketches that you may or may not have already seen.


this one is probably my favorite snippet from the ol' travel sketchbook. the scan blew it up huge. It's really only about half the size in real life.


This one's actually about a year old. I know i should have shown you earlier, but it just slipped my mind. You know I wouldn't keep this from you on purpose! Honest! You know I love you, baby. Let's never fight again.

This is my first encounter with Alias sketchbook pro, And i must say, I really like it. I havent got around to finishing this one. I wanted to put the black webby thingies in the red part of the costume, but I... you know... didn't.


And finally, I'm still wondering if its a good idea to put this one up. its a gesture i whipped up in flash on a 10 minute break, a few days before 300 came out. I guess I don't see any harm in it. The dude holding the head? Yeah, Him. I might actually clean that guy up.

Hey, It's Paul!

I was playing around with character design, trying different styles. I Call this guy Paul.


I've noticed a trend lately that all the characters I draw have been facing left. I've also noticed that considering the blog address, i should get on putting more animation on here.

I'm gonna work on those.

Self Portrait


I decided to draw a self portrait in flash today. I ended up making myself look badass completely by accident, but decided to roll with it anyways.

Flash Cleanup



This is my own cartoon rendition of Beetlejuice, drawing more from Michael Keaton's Beetlejuice than the already existing beetlejuice cartoon character. this was a drawing scanned in and cleaned up in flash.


This is a character of mine named rugged ron. He's basically an updated version of the character in the stop motion video below. this drawing was done entirely in flash.

Video Time!

Here are some videos I have ready right now to post, and i'll find more in the next day or so.


This is a stop motion short I did at the end of my first year at NSCC truro. It won 1st place in the experimental category at the animediafest last year.


A rough animation of a character named dillon (courtesy of collideascope animation studios) climbing a rope. the details are a little hard to make out at this resolution.


Another rough animation of the same character, this time doing a laugh lipsync. The video synced up with the sound before I uploaded it onto youtube.


Yet another rough animation, this time a very quick one of a simple human figure doing a backflip.


this one is my first attempt at a lipsync test in Maya, using a pre-modeled head.

In other news: man makes blog, posts things

Howdy, everyone.
Welcome to the new blog! I'm gonna take a bit to add some videos and pictures so I can make this sucker look a little more inviting. I'll add what I have, and then find other things I wouldn't mind you people seeing in the next short while. It'll start to come together soon.
