Working in animation is fun!

Every year Nickelodeon throws a Halloween party, and it's really special. Each crew transforms their work area into a haunted house, and gives out candy to the all the lucky kids who are invited.  This year the TUFF Puppy crew built King Mutt's tomb, and I wanted to share it with you.

It started out with a little animation of the Chief - which I did in Flash.
Then comes the amazing stuff! Like entrance to King Mutt's tomb:

Inside, we find the tomb is filled with booby traps!
And finally you come to the treasure chamber. And guess what? The treasure is CANDY!!
Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard to craft such an amazing Haunted House!

Lights Out

New week - new storyboard. Actually, an old board: Fairly Oddparents, Lights Out. I thought this episode would be really easy because so much of it happened in the dark - and from a draftsmanship point of view it was. But from a thinking POV it turned out to be a real challenge to keep things interesting and to imply all of the action in a clear way. Usually I split my time 50/50 between planning and drawing. this time it was 80/20.

Hats off to Kevin Sullivan for his fine script.

Sneak Peek!

Here's one of my favorite panels from an upcoming FOP special - drawn by the man himself: Butch Hartman!
What diabolical scheme could these losers be hatching?

Dog Daze

Hey Everyone,

I finally figured out how to post full boards. In the future I'll be posting TUFF Puppy boards as the episodes air, and FOP stuff as well. First up is Dog Daze - my first Tuff Puppy assignment!
