When I was around 19 years old, I was constantly making these little flipbooks. It was tricky to flip them while holding the iPhone, but maybe I'll try to reshoot them later with better results. (Incidentally, these are what I showed Ollie Johnston when I met him, and he wished me luck getting into CalArts - and to use more squash and stretch)

Just recently saw the latest Disney Cruise Line buses driving around WDW property, with some of my art. I penciled the ducks - based partly on the dimensional figures on the stern of the Disney Wonder - and when approved, inked and painted them digitally. I painted Mickey as well, but it was a pre-existing pose.

About 7 years ago, a group of us from the Disney Design Group (from Orlando) collaborated with the talented team from Disney Consumer Products (from Glendale) to come up with a wide assortment of product ideas and rough artwork involving Pixar's film properties. This took place during an incredibly fun week up at Pixar Animation Studios, in Emeryville, CA. These are a couple of B-movie style posters I designed around some of the Toy Story characters.

For the 25th anniversary of Disney's Hollywood Studios (formerly the Disney/MGM Studios), some of us had the honor of being invited back to the Animation building to host private screenings of two of the films we helped create here in Florida, "Mulan" and "Lilo and Stitch". The audience consisted of current Cast Members who work at that Park and their guests, and it was a pleasure to share our experiences and answer questions about a studio that contributed so much to the heritage of the Company.

Back in 1995, at the almost finished Feature Animation building in Burbank, CA (I'm the second guy on the left).
I moved to the Florida Studio in 1997, a year or two before this photo was taken. This building was finished after completion of "Mulan".

In 2009, I did the roughs and line art for a book called "Dust-Up in the Desert", about Lightning McQueen's off-road racing adventures. I believe the super-talented David Murray did the digital paintings.
