MY CHILDHOOD DREAM COMES TRUE TOMORROW

I didn't wish to have anyone killed.
I didn't wish to fall in love.
 I didn't wish to bring someone back from the dead.
But when I was a child I did make a wish to be a Walt Disney Animator. Well, tomorrow the genie will grant that wish.
Thank you for everyone who helped me along the way and those who believed in me. It was your support that made that excited little boy work hard to make his dream come true. I'm really looking forward to whatever this next chapter of my life and career have in store for me.

 Alright Mickey, let's dance!!

STODOE'S OWN TAKE ON THE #ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE

I was shocked that with all these videos of people dumping water on their heads
I hadn't seen a parody yet.
So I rushed home and in 6 hours created this..........before someone else did.

Enjoy.

Still Exploring

More drawrin's

Continuing to develop and learn the character. I'm sooo excited to get animating this guy. Watch for the final parody short on STODOE STUDIOS The title is still yet to come. But stay tuned on here facebook and twitter to follow the progress as I create this short.
 

SHIFTING GEARS

I was actually in the middle of working on a new animated parody idea. And then something happened. I got a couple of hours to go see DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. I loved it. I couldn't get it out of my head for the next few days. And the funny thing is as I was watching the movie a hilarious new parody idea jumped in my head that I couldn't get away from. So I literally put the other short I was working on aside to start this one last night. Here's one of my drawings that I did as I started working on designs for my newest STODOE STUDIOS parody cartoon. Hopefully it will be done in a few weeks for the world to share and laugh with me.

If you like it the song is also available for purchase on Itunes.
So check it out and let me know what you think.

Enjoy our messed up sense of humor.

TRYING TO INSPIRE STUDENTS

As some of you may know I teach an online "CARTOONY ANIMATION" class for CGTarian.com
If you haven't heard of it please check it out.  And if you want to learn animation it's a great group of workshops to take.

During the course actually animate shots in front of them so they can see my workflow and process.  This is a shot I animated last night for my class.
It took me about 5 hours and I'm really happy with it.  I love doing cartoony animation.  It's so much more fun than copying reality.

There's still time to sign up for the next term so make sure you check it out HERE!!

AAAAAND!!! Some more art from my past

Before I moved to LA, I lived in Brampton, Ontario, Canada and did a lot of acting. I performed in a lot of stage musicals.  One of my favourites was CABARET.  What's not to like?  Partying with a bunch of friends with beautiful ladies in lingerie for weeks on end.  SIGN ME UP!!!
Anyway, I drew this around that time. I caricatured a bunch of my friends as the roles they played in the show.

The 90's called. They want their fan art back.

Wow here's a blast from the past.  I was just looking through some old artwork and found this. 
For those of you that don't know me. I grew up doing a lot of theatre and musicals.  In the 90's I was obsessed with the musical RENT. 
Here's a drawing I did of the main characters. I wish I had time to just draw whatever I wanted again.
