Hi everyone! Whoa its been a while since my last journal....lots of things have been happening so here's a big update on what's been going on since last I wrote.
First, I had an animation screening of my cartoons at a gallery here in San Francisco! It was early this month and it had a great turn out. It was a big collection of everything from Skitzo shorts to In The Dark previews and even an educational cartoon I worked on for PBS last year! I loved how the audiences were all laughing and screaming and some just covering their eyes saying WHY?! OH NO...NO... (during Skitzo haha), it was a lot of great expressions and when it ended I had a full house of applause and so many people gave me great feedback. It really got me motivated to get out there and show more...I hope to find some more places to submit my shorts!
*scene from the educational documentary on Pueblo Indians and their religions and culture. They played this on the PBS channel last year. I animated some scenes in this and did a lot of the storyboards.
Speaking of animations, I have been monthly animating panels from In The Dark 3 on my Patreon...and they are getting really good! I think the act of forcing myself to animate once a month is helping me get better at them. So far there are 4 short animations and about 7 pages of Issue 3 up now. The comic itself I'm very proud of....I feel like my art and comic panels are starting to really expand visually. Also we are getting into a scene now that has Idolatry and Sin going head to head!! Haha so you know that's not gonna be pretty! All for $1, you can't go wrong with that for a monthly updated webcomic

Below is a page of the comic and a few screencaps of the animations!
Then of course there is that big secretive Skitzo project I've been working on!! I think the announcement will be later this month as I've been trying to get it all set up on Kickstarter...taking pictures and prepping details. There are some SWEET rewards for this thing and I have to make sure its all there when the whole project goes live. But here's a sneak peek at one reward: Shiny Buttons!
Of course I'm sure you want to know what the project is funding and I'M ALMOST ready to tell you guys!! The last thing I'm trying to complete is a video pitch thingy and that's taking me more time then I realized heh. Doing a kickstarter requires a lot of work and prep! But I'm getting there and soon Skitzo will be unleashed on this world...soooon!
Oh yeah and I did a new mini painting on canvas...It's in the spirit of Valentines :b It stars a demon I drew in my sketch books a while back called a "Heart Eater" which live in Hell and eat hearts heh...so you can expect that to be posted on DA soon. Also THANK YOU to all the people who sent me one of those PM Valentines messages. I appreciate the artwork gifts and I hope you all had lots of chocolate and cheer!
now its back to work! Here I go!
