Jack and Candie version 2 and 3

I noticed a lot of retro posters have a few alternate versions. I thought it was cool how they were able to rearrange and add elements to make it horizontal and vertical. I thought I'd try a alternate version.
Happy Halloween (hope use firefox/browser for this one)

I love RETRO posters. I thought I do a fun fake movie retro poster. This is one of three versions. Why three versions? well I guess explain that more on the next post. I've also included a animaged gif/ Animated png version. if you wanted to see the steps APNG is a higher quality but it only animates if you use Firefox or Opera browser(click here for ANPG HIGH QUALITY).

He-man, MOTU. Toy Masters

After watching the preview Documentary Toy masters, q behind the scenes of He-man. I was really pumped to create this piece.
The three heads up above are "the Masters of the Universe"
Paul Cleveland, Roger Sweet, Mark Taylor.

In terms of style I wanted to do something in the same vein as the original toy. As the documentary put it, he is wider then he is tall!
It was a lot of fun to do. One day I'll get to a Skeletor version...

check out the documentary preview (I can't wait to see the whole thing!).
Oh yeah and thanks to my fiancee (coolest ever, she got me the first season of He-man)

the zoo


I managed to head to the zoo last week with Charlene Chua and Mike Del Mundo.
A lot of fun... but I have a feeling that the animals knew we were drawing them and when they got bored of us they went to turn away.

A cuter Easter. Bunny Girl

Well here's another Easter Promo I did. Something completely different from my last piece.
I was heavily influenced by papercraft culture. Although the illustration took no time at all... but I thought I would spend more time experimenting with the animation.
