I couldn't wish for anything better to work on than this, one of my all time favorite comic book character. These designs are for the three shorts "Wisdom", "Courage" and "Stamina" which featured in the show "DC Nation" last year on the Cartoon Network. If you missed them, they can be found on the ever delightful "YouTube".

Well this looks like the last of my animation portfolio. It's been two years since I have worked on this and I haven't been able to find a job since. Every project I apply for either gets cancelled or I didn't make the cut, But the search continues.

It's like a dream come true when you get to work on anything Dr. Seuss. This animated show was based on a series of books ( not written by Seuss ) aimed to educate children about the world and everything in it, not very Seuss thing at all. But it is still his style and I enjoyed the challenge of designing in that style, especially the weird and wonderful machines.

I only got to work on the first season of this show and not the second because of trip to the Hospital that lasted two months and more at home recuperating. Would have been fun though, but that honor went to my friend Rene Daigle.

Combat Carl!

COMBAT CARL / CARL WEATHERS

 I just recently saw Pixar's "Toy Story of Terror" TV special ( forgot about it when it originally came out ) and just loved all the "Predator" movie reference, especially Carl Weathers aka: Combat Carl. The whole show was a kid friendly "Predator" movie, right down to the "Over Here" whisper and being hunted by a giant lizard. Even Combat Carl's hand was missing and in the "Predator" movie, Carl Weathers character had his hand ( actually his arm )  blown off by the Predator. 

I loved it so much, I did this small sample of a "Combat Carl" toy line in classic G.I. Joe style right after watching the special. Also made his enemy villain the classic Predator for him to fight until the end of time.
