Hidey ho everybody!

(insert typical journey entry by deviantArt user who hasn't updated anything in an astronomically long time and excuses as to why no art has been uploaded here)

For the past 9 months or so, I've been having an absolute blast animating on a new TV show for Teletoon and Cartoon Network called GROJBAND!

It's awesome (I'm biased), but seriously, it's awesome. Naturally, I'd probably get into an amazing capacity of trouble if I were to post art from the show for you to see. FORTUNATELY, the directors have a production blog that you can check out right here;

It's about kids, in a band, that rock. It rocks, tremendous rockage.

Can't wait for this bad boy to start airing so I can finally post some artwork. Pumped to share with you, beloved friends sprinkled across the cyber dimensions of the web.

Peace, love, and rock & roll!

What's good party people?
I have phenomenal news!!! My good friend and INCREDIBLY talented artist Garrett Hanna just re-surfaced on dA. Some of you might be familiar with his old gallery under ~throbulator.

If you get a minute, give him a warm welcome back and check out his gallery here :icongh-graphics:


Also this month:
I want to give a crazy THANK YOU to all the fav's n' watches I've received recently. Forever apologetic that I can't get back to you guys with the respect. It is MUCH appreciated, you all rock.

Also the group film I'm working on is in motion and we're dropping some hot ish for it. Looking forward to working with such talented people. Not to mention making an animated short.

Speaking of shorts, I'm also working on a 30 second animated spot all by my lonesome self. Insha'allah that will all pull through the way I'm imagining it.

Anyways, just a heads up that I'm busy led busting on paper for eternity so stay up party people and I'll catch ya next one.
