One late night last year, when I was living in Atlanta and working on "Squidbillies", I was playing around with Alias Sketchbook Pro. I wanted to draw something, but that particular evening, I wasn't feeling particularly inspired. So I turned to the show I had worked on for 2+ years for inspiration...besides, I figured it would be fun to see these characters (some of whom have such strange designs) fleshed out in a more realistic manner.
It is actually because of these drawings that Jim Fortier, one of the creators of "Squidbillies", asked me to create this drawing of Early Cuyler for the show.

Here's a new reel featuring some of my work. Not all the cuts work perfectly, but I will continue to tweak it and update it.

I've been playing with pattern a lot lately--exploring how it can be used as a device for abstraction and composition. In this piece I even tilted the perspective of the floor a little bit in an attempt to make it one more patterned element.
