I will have some work shown at the Asifa East fest this weekend. I spent some of my time last year freelancing (whilst unemployed) with Dancing Diablo (out of Brooklyn).
I worked with the most excellent Dan FORGIONE on some commercial spots for the Bronx Zoo....lots of fun.
So I'll be there for the screening and some drinks after the fact. It should be a hoot. Please feel free to say Hi to me...I have a crazy looking beard and glasses....I am not much for starting conversations without a little push.
Its in Manhattan, here's the info.

Last night was Great....
Dan Meth and the boys put on a good show.
I did some drawing and some drinking. But, am not sure about the turnout. Didn't seem as grand as the last.
Still I met some really great and talented folks, whilst fiddling out horrible alcohol soaked caricatures...> my apologies to KYLE BOYD, ADAM ROSETTE, and ELLIOT COWAN for never truly capturing there mugs.
But, I will fire out the drawing above for Elliot In the hopes that we can hang out and drink liquor while scribbling again some time soon.
Lots'a stuff going on in my little corner of the Manhattan. Work was kinda rough last week...Some tight deadlines and some late nights with a lack of sleep but, I managed to make it through and with little damage....
Right now my computer is running at half mast because my surge protector and such crapped out on me this weekend.....Sent a mad ass cloud of toxic smoke into my room (and lungs) even after I unplugged the thing...I imagine some dust got in there. But, I only have an outlet for my computer right now...No perifs and no extra monitor....
Well I haven't posted much lately here. I have been kicking it for the past few months with all my friends over at the www.DRAWINGBOARD.ORG .
I am doing lots of Caricature lately...because its an itch I feel the need to scratch.
gets me to do more observation, still designing, and, I get to flex some more rendering and modeling skills.
Had a great two day visit to the NYCC....chatted with Steven Silver and Alberto Ruiz until they where sick of me hanging about. Met some other really cool artists and hang out with some guys I hadn't seen in a good long while.. thanks Nelson, and Brendan I had fun.
So here is a caricature I did today...the guys is a member of the board.
He had a wonderfully cartoon-like putty face. I couldn't resist drawing it...
Hope you dig..
This is a little Flash drawing with some photoshop rendering...took maybe an hour, and twenty because I had to go back and Iron out some details in the drawing.
Hey everyone. Sorry for the absence...I have been busy busy busy.
I hope you all had a good time at the comicon, and that things have been treating you well. Here's a caricature of yours truly at a recent family Reunion.
Best wishes to all, more art coming soon....honest.
Hey all...Here is something to ponder....
Watch this if you have twenty minutes or take twenty minutes to check it out. I found it pretty informative.
Plus it has animation.
