2016 – A new year with fresh new pixels

A New Year already!

I just finished up some 8-bit pixel work on a rather great skater-travel show. I’ll post that here as soon as it’s publicly released.

The pixel thing seems to keep on going no matter what year it is, I’m also working on a music video in that same retro pixel game style which, again, I’ll post when it goes public.

In the meanwhile if you’re looking for some nice big blocky pixels, check out my pixel channel on vimeo – chock a block full of that style by all sorts of creative people.

Here’s to a New Year!

Leaving the Garage.

Up until recently I was a full time staff director at Global Mechanic, a multidisciplinary art and animation studio in Vancouver BC.  I spent nearly a decade with the fine people there and worked on many wonderful projects for a diverse number of clients.  If you’re a talented animator, designer or programmer I recommend that studio as a great work environment filled with wonderful people.

..And if you’ve been waiting for the opportunity to work with me now’s your chance!  I’m currently available for interesting animation and design projects.  Check out my reel at and if you have a project you’d like to discuss or want my updated contact info send me some email  (helloatriotsquaddottv?subject=Hello!)  .
