Successfully Funded Kickstarter

As of Feb 2nd I can say that I helped to successfully fund a Kickstarter campaign! And this was my first Kickstarter no less! My primary responsibilities were to produce the pitch video and run demos of the game at conventions and local board game meetups. I am absolutely thrilled by the enormous amount of support the project received. Going into the project I knew it was a huge risk, and thought I understood how much work the campaign would require, but boy was I wrong. It was like working two full time jobs for a month, and that's not even taking into account the months of marketing we did leading up to the campaign, or the years it took to actually make the game!

Looking back, I can say the Chaosmos team did everything right. Chaosmos is a labor of love. Passion kept our fires burning when the hours got long or doubt set in because deep down we knew we had a game worth sharing. Chaosmos is scheduled to hit shelves in October 2014.

Here's to many more successes in the future!

2011 Sheridan Animation Portfolio

At long last I present my portfolio to Sheridan's Animation program.

Roughly one year ago I set a goal to gain acceptance into one of best animation schools in the world. My two choices were CalArts and Sheridan. For the past six months my life has revolved around preparing this portfolio. I attended over a hundred figure drawing sessions (roughly 5 sessions per week). Whenever I had free time I would work on portfolio drawings, day and night for six months. 

The hardest part by far was the character section. I saved it for last because I thought it would be the easiest. Boy was I wrong! Thank God I did the room drawings first because they are definitely the most daunting, but once you get into them they fly by. I used mostly extra figure drawings for my personal work because I spent so much time figure drawing. I figured that if I went to as many figure drawing sessions as I could then those skills would translate into the other drawings, and I think I was right.
