CTN Expo 2013...

It's incredibly late notice on my part, but I'll be at the CTN Expo tomorrow (Saturday, 11/16/13) at the Disney booth from 12-2pm, checking out portfolios, shmoozing, and being generally awed by the talent that rolls through there each year.

If you're around, come check us out.

And bring a raincoat or an umbrella. It always seems to rain during this thing.

Last of the Tales of Metropolis...

Cartoon Network finally posted the last of the Tales of Metropolis shorts from their DC Nation block. I had a lot of fun doing the backgrounds on these. Many thanks to Will Patrick and everybody else involved.

Watch the final short HERE.

I also assembled all the BGs from the Lois/Batman short in a postmortem "Color Script".  I made an earlier version that could more accurately be called a color script, but I figured the finished versions would be more fun to look at. Apologies for the long thumbnail format...

Whole Mess of Mickey...

Hello, strangers. Got a pipin' fresh load of Mickey BGs for ya here. Hope you like them.

And I also forgot to post that we won the Emmy for Outstanding Short Format Animated Program a few months back! Pretty cool stuff.

Here's the little Cartoon Brew blurb.

While I'm at it, here's a link to the actual Mickey Mouse Shorts themselves.

Thanks for stopping in!

"'O Sole Minnie"

"Dog Show"

"Ghoul Friend"

"Bad Ear Day"

                          (This last one is from a scene that was cut where
                        Minnie is waiting at the theatre entrance for Mickey.)

More Tales of Metropolis...

The second of the three DC Nation "Tales of Metropolis" shorts I did the backgrounds for has been released online. This time around it features Lois trying to get an interview with a certain pointy-eared superhero. I'll be posting some background images soon.

More Mickeys...

Here are a few more samplings from the latest Mickey shorts to be released. It's hard to edit out the ones for display, as we did so many for each short, but I had a lot of fun doing them all. 

And on a side note, we found out last week that our very first short, "Croissant de Triomphe", is now nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Short Format Animation!

Awards are in late September. Fingers crossed!

"Tokyo Go"

"New York Weenie"


 "Stayin' Cool"

Mickey Mouse Shorts...

Since the Mickey Shorts I've been working on for ages have finally started to air, I can show off some examples of the mountains of work we've been making! This is just a tiny bit of the vast amount of work done for every short, but you can get an idea of what was involved. These are posted in order of production, and are all copyrighted by Disney.

"Croissant de Triomphe"

"No Service"


It's very exciting to see all the great responses to these shorts. We've certainly been busting our butts on each and every one of them, and the final product (I hope) reflects all the passion and effort. I'll be posting more as the new episodes premiere, so keep checking back for more.
