Petey Pate

Like all aspiring animators, "Mighty Mouse The New Adventures" had a huge impact on me, particularly the balding, psychopath, Petey Pate. Petey was the first crazy character I ever laid eyes at four years old. I remember watching the episode "Night On Bald Pate" in my parents' bedroom one brisk Saturday Morning. While threatening Pearl Pureheart, the image at 00:06:43 changed my life forever. That was my first time seeing a cartoon character with blood shot eyes and crooked teeth. That was when I decided to draw cartoons especially with blood shot eyes and crooked teeth. Thank you Petey Pate for inspiring, and scary the bejesus out of me.

The Fast And The Curious

Here we go again! Mucho apologies for not posting. Busy again but in a very good way. For the past three weeks, I have been working as a flash artist at Curious Pictures in New York. It's an honor to work for the company that brought us the Cartoon Network hit Code Name Kids Next Door. Each day not only has been fun, but a great learning experience, both artistically and in business etiquette. Here are some sketches I was able to squeeze in my free time. First three personal future ideas.

Sketches for two fan art pieces.

Subway people. Gave me an excuse to try this awesome new brush pen I bought.
