Anonymous asked: You did the clay mice stop motion?! I saw this a long time ago and fell in love with it but then I lost it and I never knew who did it! By chance I found your blog sheer chance and I am ecstatic! Big fan! :3
Wow, an OG fan! :) That means a lot, I really appreciate the kind words. Thank you very much! ”Chocolate and Mices” is something I’m still pretty proud of, I’m glad others enjoy it too. Thanks for making my day, anonymous friend!
Didn’t really know what to draw… so I drew Nick. Everyone likes a bearded boy anyhoo…
My lovely girlfriend Susan Nguyen made a wonderful portrait of me, posted on her new tumblr where she’ll be selling her wares. Give it a look if you like cute stuff!
My burger gif finally uploads!
I get emails now and again from people asking to use my artwork for various things- shirts, mugs, posters. Needless to say, there’s never any mention of compensation for me, the artist. At least they asked though. I got curious today about which of my works was the most swiped, so I did some Google Image searching. Looks like my toast and toaster from 2008 is the winner… :-/ I wish I’d been signing my work at that point, something I still need to work on.
Here’s a poster I created for the upcoming 9th Ever LA Old Time Social. I’m not a designer by any means, but I had fun trying something new and experimenting! I’m also playing the fiddle at the Thursday party as half of the White Chocolate Drops!
The first episode of Sanjay and Craig I storyboarded on premieres this Saturday at 1030 on NICK! It’s called Old Farts, written and boarded by my pal Toby Jones and myself! I also did some revision work on its sister episode, Kerplunk’d (with some super funny stuff from the great Bryan Mann in there too!) Hope you like em!
Here’s a new promo video for the next batch of Sanjay and Craig episodes! The first episode I storyboarded on (with my friend Toby Jones) is in this batch, as well as a few episodes I did revisions on before I joined a board team. Great stuff coming up, hope you check it out!
A couple months ago, I started doing Storyboards for Sanjay and Craig. It’s an amazing crew, and there’s more than enough farts to go around.

Just finished The War for Late Night and had to do a quick sketch of Jay Leno
This week I had the distinct pleasure of visiting the home of Joseph E. Wack to play some great Old Time music. Joe’s an amazing fiddler (and guitar and banjo player) from West Virginia, he’s the nicest guy I know, and he’s been doing character design on The Simpsons since Season 5. Joining us on banjo and fiddle was the great Mike Heinle, banjo player for LA Old Time kingpins Triple Chicken Foot (LA Weekly’s ‘Best Folk Band’) and reader of ancient Sumerian texts (really!). It was a real treat to play with these two very interesting guys; the evening was full of laughs, great tunes, and an amusing story about Joe getting stung 25 times through his beekeeper’s suit.
Here’s a short video of us jamming an old tune, Christmas Eve:
Reblogging this to mention that since I originally posted this, I’ve found out that Joe designed my all time favorite Simpsons character, Gil Gunderson!! This one’s for ol’ Gil!
