Joy Ride

Gotta enjoy the ride. Sometimes it gets bumpy and scary, but after all it's what you make of it.

Hakuna Matata

Hi everyone. This is my send off sketch as it’s my last day at my current job. There are many thoughts I have behind this piece, but mainly it’s inspired by the amazing Lion King show I saw in Disney World recently and the fact the Lion King is the movie that inspired me to get into the animation field in the first place. I was in the ninth grade at the time! Yeesh, time flies. Little did I know that I’m now off to work for Disney. So, it’s also a bit of celebration piece. Hakuna Matata!

In honor of Shark Week!

Seeing all the little fish that follow around the Great White Sharks reminds me of the old Looney Tunes 'Spike and Chester' cartoons.

The Peanut Vendor

Image that popped into my head after listening to Stan Kenton's tune of the same name.

Like A Duck

I always remember a quote from Michael Caine saying "Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but paddling like the dickens underneath."

Dancing in the Streets

I had an 'aha' moment recently. For the past few months I've been noticing cats prints all over my car when I wake up in the morning (for some reason only my car). Then, recently I saw Puss in Boots where the cats were dance fighting. It hit then that they're dancing on my car in
the moonlight.

About a year ago I had a dream I've never forgotten. I've had many I remember when I wake up, but they eventually seem to fade out of memory. This one really stuck though. It was nighttime and I was in a park with someone else (I don't know who). There was a man talking to us. He was more than a man though, he was a sort of oracle/wiseman. He looked like an average joe businessman, dressed in a suit and wearing a long trench coat over it. I remember distinctly though that he was huge, maybe about 8 ft. tall or more. He was explaining to us that he
had the ability to distinguish those who had a gift and were extraordinary. He was explaining this for awhile when he stopped, looked at me, slowly smiled, and said "There's something special about you, isn't there?". I remember sheepishly looking away, nodding my head, and that's when I woke up.
Rarely a day goes by when I don't think of it and its significance. I've always worked hard, but ever since then I've made it a point to go that extra mile in pursuing my dreams and goals to find out if what was stated in my dream is really true.

Leave it to Beaver

I was recently listening to Jeff Foxworthy tell a story of how a man had his nipple bitten off by a beaver. The imagery was just beautiful, so I thought I'd sketch it
