Deer walk cycle ANIMATED GIF
A practice animation from this week.  This was so much fun to do!  I can't believe how fast it is animating with the puppet tool in After Effects.

Visit my Tumblr for some process shots:…

Gym Dudes by Tallychyck
Gym Dudes
Character design exercise -- 21 characters on the theme of "dudes at the gym".  This was really fun and I think I'll repeat it, maybe with "dog breeds" or "party dresses" next. :)

Drawn in Photoshop CS4

Weeeeelll, DA doesn't accept .wmv files, but you can watch the video on vimeo!
This is an animatic for a short story I boarded back in March (It received a DD; THANK YOU!!) <3

I went back and spruced up the boards with helpful feedback from story artist Randeep Katari who I met in NYC this summer. :) Follow his work!

I drew the frames in Manga Studio 5 (Frenden brush pack) and Photoshop CS4, and assembled the video in Windows Movie Maker.
I'm very excited to announce that I will be a guest next weekend at the Rendez-Vous de la Bande Dessinée in Amiens, France (about 30 minutes north of Paris).  I believe the festival is free to attend, and there are 95 invited authors (a festival record), including...

Nicolas Bannister
Damien Cuvillier
Flora Grimaldi
Nicolas Hitori de
Joe Sacco
Craig Thompson

(See the full list here:…

I will have copies of A Boy & A Girl and these limited edition bookplates:… and I'll be free to chat (English, broken French, or REALLY broken Japanese, as you prefer ;) ) and sketch!

I am so happy I've found you here! :D I watch you on tumblr and I loved your Monsters and Dames comic for a long time (I found it on tumblr a long time ago but couldn't track down the artist) but DA is just more convenient when it comes to art.
