An Animated Happy Holidays!

As promised here is the "more to come" from my earlier post.

I did a PSA for the IBEW Local 98 in an epic rush (two working days time). 
Special Thanks to Baker Sound Studios for a killer audio experience and David Witz for his awesome project management.
This project is by far one of the shortest turn-arounds for a full spot I've ever been a part of. Considering the time-frame and that it was all created by one individual, I'm very pleased with the result. It was a ton of fun to create!

Admit it you want to go

So it turns out the Green Dragon (via Geekologie) is an actual fully functional pub in New Zeland. 

I don't know about anyone else, but if they are serving hobbit pints we are going to have a problem. :)

Scream Painting, It'll make you laugh

The reasons why I find this amusing are endless. Almost as endless as the nightmares I have about "art" like this being made, sold and called art. I guess from a creative standpoint you can justify anything, however this is borderline absurd. Jump to the 6-min mark if you want to laugh until you cry or just cry if you are an actual educated artistic professional. Well I guess everyone needs a hobby right?
