Something from a Generator Rex

Most everything I do these days seems to have a 6 month to a year 'top secret' status; meaning I can't post anything until after it airs.  Even then, there are often limitations as to what can be released.  All part of getting to play with some of the best properties ever created, so I'm not kvetching at all.  But the other day, I ran across a particularly nice episode of Generator Rex on Cartoon Network from way back in Season 1.   It was one that I was fortunate enough to get to work on, and this episode was particularly fun because I had a lot of artistic freedom to develop a real feel for Rex's flashback experiences in Hong Kong.  Posting some of the finished work here (along with a smattering of pages so you can see how I was able to help guide the look and feel of some shots).  Until such time as the link is smashed, here's the episode for your enjoyment:

Funtime quicksketch

Recently an episode of Transformers PRIME debuted that I am particularly proud of.  I was fortunate enough to be asked to Co-direct this episode, and with the great Co-direction of Todd Waterman, and awesome boards by Art Nichols, Raphael Rosado and Tim Maltby, (as well as beautiful Art direction/Producing by David Hartman) the show looked amazing.  A real scary rollercoaster ride!  Special thanks to Therese and Jeff, without whom such a fun and gratifying experience would never have been possible.  Check it out on iTunes (where you can rent or own it), or find the shows at the HUB.

Cinderella (for Kids)

Another poster design for the children's theater TOAD.  It's for little kids, so kept it simple and cute.

It can finally be posted: Transformers PRIME

So much of what I work on is on the DL for so long that it can be a year before it finally sees the light of day and I can proudly show it off.  Such is the case of Transformers PRIME, and while I'm not able to show the actual storyboard art I did for the show, (which is something else, if I can brag a bit) I can show off the results.  And what great results we got.  I can't tell you how much this show means to everyone working on it.   If you get a chance, catch Transformers PRIME on the HUB (a new channel) - the 5 part miniseries is out now with new episodes airing in February!
