The force is with me ...

... and I am one with the force.

Around two years ago I was still doing fan art for Rogue One : A Star Wars Story. And now I have seen my shots in the film and my name in the famous blue credits. It was some of the most fun I've ever had working on a film. And a real thrill to just open up such iconic ships and machines in Maya and animate them. I still can not get over that I was fortunate enough to get to work on a Star Wars film. As a child I would always dream of what it would be like to put some X-Wings into a scene, dodging TIEs and rolling through blaster fire. Now that dream has come true. Watching the film was a surreal experience, not just because of my work, but also to see this side of the Star Wars universe I've always imaged seeing. I'm glad it's getting such positive reactions overall.

Here are two trailer screen grabs of some of my work.





 Bonus : A colleague and I bought some AT-ACT model kits, painted them, and got them signed by the ILM Vancouver team.

Industrial Light and Magic!

For those of you who don't know, I've left Middle Earth for a galaxy far far away instead. I currently work at ILM now, here in Vancouver. . It has always been a dream of mine to work here.

Here are the Super Bowl spots for two shows that I was fortunate to be a part of so far. I'm posted full time on Ninja Turtles, and I helped out on a couple shots for Civil War. It's exciting times for our company!

Gothic Horror

Some Halloween art, with nods towards the Haunted Mansion sprinkled in. It was really fun playing around with the lighting and textures more. It was really fun drawing this.

Rogue One

I'm quite excited for Gareth Edward's Rogue One : A Star Wars Story. I always wanted to see the grittier side of the war on film.

I wanted to do some fan art on the individual characters. So here they are.

Big Hero Win

I just went to see Big Hero 6 this past weekend, and what a treat. It's one of Disney's best in their recent return to making hits. Tangled was the first of the new batch for me that I truly enjoyed. Frozen didn't hit the mark for me quite as much (even though there was a lot I did enjoy). But Big Hero 6 was definitely more of what I wanted. It was almost tailored for me. The designs, the story, the setting and universe. It was fantastic. A big 'Baymax Fist bump' to all those artists at Disney. Really really great work.

I think my girlfriend Kelly even enjoyed it more than I did, but Baymax really tipped the scale for her.
