some screenings!

If you're in Brooklyn or Manhattan this weekend, check out "Alpha-9!" screening at some really awesome animation festivals!

Fri, July 24th, 8pm — Pat Smith's CARTOONS FROM HELL in Manhattan at the 92YTribeca Screening Room! This is a culmination of lots of really professional animators, and is a guaranteed good time. Tickets are ten bones.
Tickets and info here.

Sun, July 26th, 4:30pm and 9:15pm — Animation Block Party in Brooklyn at BAMcinĂ©matek! This is a 3-day BK animation festival, with cool stuff all days, so come out for all the events! This screening is $11 online and I heard that it could very easily sell out.
Tickets and info here.

Also if you're in the Woodstock area the first weekend in October, you should swing by! My film just got accepted there!

And, if you're in the Transylvania area over the weekend of the 31st of July (Lazarea Judetul Hargita, Romania), stop into the Muuuvi Festival for a weekend of music and my film thrown in somewhere in there.

Anyways, that's it for now! Here's a drawing I did with some bright colors that I'm beginning to find very hard to look at.

so here's some really old stuff

I was looking at a friend's website today and saw a lot of the drawings we developed for a pitch he was working on last year posted up all over the place. It's been about a year since we completed them, and assuming now it'll never be picked up, I'd like to share the things I drew for it.

The show was called "Carnies" and, you guessed it, involved a bunch of carnival freaks and the havoc they wreak in and out of their traveling circus. I could only locate the clean ones from his site, and the rough ones were just things I found from an old hard drive, and were more the working sketches, that may have not even made it until the end. In a couple, you can see the progression of the characters.

Anyways, this is my house-cleaning. Hope you like!

¡La cosa terrible de Alpha-9!

so maybe i'm being a bit vein, but i've been floored recently that i've seen so many people linking to my film and blog over the last month. while and were both so amazing as to put it up on their sites, some of my favorite links are the weirdest ones:

my film was pirated on a chinese site, complete with watermarking and advertisements! also, here it is en espanol! and the coolest one ever, i was just going through WJC's blog and found he'd drawn my spaceman. waaaaay awesome. if it was my birthday i'd consider it the best birthday present ever.

anyways, thanks so much for everyone watching! if you find any more weird links, let me know!

some sketches

hey sorry for the break. i can't believe it's been a whole month since the last post! anyways, i'm playing around with ideas for a comic right now and some of these are some beginning thoughts. more hopefully to follow!
