For the last 10-12 years I have been sketching, doodling and carving out a very personal style on Post it notes. After much encouragement from a friend I am finally going to start sharing them. In most cases they are heads or faces or random thoughts that are on my mind at the moment. Here are just a few...

Well now that T.U.F.F. Puppy aired I can finally show a few things that I have been working on. This is one of Snaptrap's evil Doom agents, he's an English bloke named Ollie. On the advice of a co-worker I modeled him after the tall thin English character Horace from 101 Dalmatians. I did several very rough passes at him and Butch just picked one, with almost no changes it went off to clean up...that doesn't happen often I must admit.

This is an older design I did on paper a few years back, the Surgeon General. Looking at this makes me realize how much I miss drawing on paper with pencil. I think I'll dig around and see if I can find some more of these older designs that were done on paper and post just those for a while.

One of my many responsibilities on the show is to come up with title card concepts. Here are a few that I've done in the last year or so. They usually begin with a rough concept sketch and then if selected are then taken to a finished rough that is then cleaned up and colored. Staging and working out the typography are the most challenging and fun parts of designing the title cards. And as always great color from my friends Kaz Aizawa, Alex Deligiannis, Dan Chesser, Kelly Chan and Kristin Donner. They always take my ideas and make them come to life..! Also thx to Eirik Paye for his great rough clean up on a few of these.

A few designs I did last season from an FOP episode called "One Man Banned'. I was working from Arron Hammersly's board On this one. In this episode Timmy becomes a triangle playing Rock Star traveling the globe getting mobbed by fans everywhere he goes. He shoots video's, releases hit albums and breaks all attendance records but eventually like most big stars it goes to his head and he self destructs. I've also included the original title card that I did which was not used, I ended up doing a different one instead. Great color as always from Kaz Aizawa on the title card and and Alex Deligiannis on the models and also great work from our Clean Up department.

A few rough designs I recently did, they weren't used because we ended up taking a totally different direction but they were still fun to do. This character supposedly had a very thick Russian accent so I tried to push him as much as I could. These designs were just rough concepts, the next step would have been to tighten the chosen design down.
