There’s a Pill for That

My childhood was defined by Star Wars, which meant my parents spent a pretty penny on Kenner action figures. Those toys captivated my imagination and provided endless hours of play. I would not change a thing. Except for this.

The Holidays Are Here

This is a new animated series I’m starting. The characters are a mash-up of previous cartoon projects including the holiday-oriented strip Feb 30th and Fitzpatrick the Rat. I’ll be posting 1-2 new episodes per month. I’m excited to explore how these characters interact…

A Diminished Chord

I don’t know where this came from. Since making some better animation rigs, I’ve really been having fun with the Vader/Emperor/Krennic/Tarkin personalities.

Get in Line

Pretty self explanatory really. I didn’t spend a lot of time on detailed animation here. I would have liked to do more with Ben’s expressions, but I just wanted to get this done quick.

Night Moves

This happens pretty much every night at our house.
