As soon as I graduated from college I was getting enough job offers to start working independently, so that’s what I did! So I’ve had a lucky life of not having to work random side jobs and basically only ever having earned money by drawing or animating.


What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?

Attention All Flash USERS!

Flash CC 2015

ATTENTION Adobe Flash USERS who use extensions: Very important! Yesterday Adobe released a new version of Flash called Adobe Flash CC 2015 but unfortunately it does not have an Extensions Manager to go with it yet. It ALSO will delete the Flash CC 2014 program UNLESS you use the advanced installer to retain an older copy of CC while installing 2015 so you can check out the new features but still keep your add-ons working. If you do not use that option, 2015 will wipe out older versions of Flash installed by default. If you don’t use any extensions then ignore this notice!
