Something Old Sunday #38 (13 seconds of an unfinished controversial project)…

This is my favorite piece of an animation I did at AIPH. It is a depiction of pedophilia from a sickening book of erotica from author Anais Nin called Little Birds. The birth of the baby bird in my animation is meant to be an interpretation of the pedophile getting an erection eventually leading toContinue reading “Something Old Sunday #38 (13 seconds of an unfinished controversial project)…”

From 1995-1997 I was studying Animation/Media Arts at AIPH. This short animation was my graduate film.

Something Old Sunday #11 (Museum of Bad Art)…

In 1998 I discovered this crazy little museum in Massachusetts called the Museum of Bad Art. They were looking for submissions as long as the art truly sucked on it’s own merits. I decided to send two terrible paintings I did when I was at the Art Institute. Both were rejected for being too good.Continue reading “Something Old Sunday #11 (Museum of Bad Art)…”

Something Old Sunday #10 (8th Note Earl Storyboard)…

When I was studying animation at the Art Institute of Philadelphia in the mid 90’s one of our projects was to make an animation for an MTv Station spot. I animated this rat character of mine looking for water in the desert and comes across what appears to be a mirage of a water fountain.Continue reading “Something Old Sunday #10 (8th Note Earl Storyboard)…”
