What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation? 
One of My first Jobs was at a golf course in a rich upscale community of conservative elites in the Texas Hill country. I was the miserable peon assigned to picking up golf balls on the driving range while over privileged 7 year olds attempted to drive golf balls 150 yards in my general direction. I got hit on several occasions. I drove an armor plated golf cart with a tendency to get tangled up on itself. I also would venture out of my mobile chicken wire fortress and wear some kind of golf ball extracting contraptions on my arms and stomp around the woods retrieving lost balls. I’d stand precariously close the golfers knee deep in some freezing mucky streams and attempt to meet that days quota of lost balls. Also I had to wash said golf balls. I still have an image in my mind of the grounds keeper repeating over and over again in a toothless southern accent that it was “Very imPOR-Tint ta wersh ur balls son”

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of? 
One of My clients at work is StarMap. The original creator of the technology that allows you to hold up your Iphone to the sky and have it interpolate constellations. He really likes classic cartoons and my work. I spend a lot of time making sure that his character designs really pay homage to classic Hana Barbara Characters and the golden age of animation. at first I didn’t think it would be interesting to draw that stuff. But it really opened my eyes to simple designs and fun cartoony shapes.
Also One time I did a bus wrap design for a Hospital in Austin. They let my draw cartoon Jet engines and big Chevy fenders on the side. I think the bus goes around inner city schools and gives free rabies shots to underprivileged kids or something.

How did you become interested in animation?
When I was 18. I knew I liked to watch cartoons and preferred them over real shows. And I could draw really well compared to people at my school. I drew the comics on the school newspaper but I didn’t have any sort of direction. one day I went to visit my mom at the boutique store she was working at. I saw Continue…

What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?
I recently finished my student period (six months ago), so I haven’t work in another thing yet. Before I studied my two and a half years vocational course in Illustration, I tried with Architecture, but it really doesn’t works to me.

 

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
One of the projects I’m proud was my participation in Lince Studios’ COSMOTRIP. It’s an online 3D animation series about an alien who is trying to conquer an absurd galaxy. I designed a secondary character, an egg-shaped robot. It was my first professional work and the very first time I see one of my characters on movement. Another project I really loved was the visual development I did for a game of my own creation, “Legends of Gong Gong”. It wasn’t a comercial project, I did it as part of my graduation work. But it was the first time I spent several months developping my own universe, and despite it wasn’t really a proffesional work I enjoyed it too much.

 

How did you become interested in animation?
I’ve been watching TV series and reading comics my entire life, and I really dreamed about working in that field. But when I grew up and I had to choose my career, Continue…
