Chad's Design for Televison

Animation Design and Notes: "

Anyone interested in animation design for 1950's television might want to check out the post Chad's Design for Televison on the ASIFA site. I actually found it through the help of the guys at Animation Meat, who have a nice collection of notes from a few animators including, Glenn Kean, the Nine old Men, and Brad Bird.

Mega XLR calendar page

This comes from a job I did when I first started working fro Cartoon Network. Its a poster featured in a calendar which was distributed only amongst industry associates etc. We were trying to emulate the art style as depicted in mexican movie posters from the 30's-60's. It was never sold in stores. Looking at this now I can see how anxious I was at starting a new job. The show Megas XLR has since been cancelled due to low ratings but I thought the writing on the show was pretty clever.

Halloween DVD Menu '05

I craeted this illustration in Photoshop for the Cartoon Network DVD released in '05. My supervisors took off the reigns and allowed me to go off on this job and really stretch my wings for which I was extremely greatful. I worked it to the point where the size exceeded a gigabyte (1000 megabytes) which even on a G5 began to hamper me somewhat in managing the file.

CN Calendar

This was a piece I worked on at CN when I first started out. It was for a Calendar. I think they're pretty hard to find. Done in my pre blogging phase.
