Animation and Assets
Bug Bites was a short lived kids show aired locally on PBS (we produced two, 13-episode seasons, one aired, one in the can). I made character designs, backgrounds, assets, storyboards, wrote segments, interstitials and pitched a few gags.
While not an animator per se, I did produce a few short pieces. I also worked closely with the animators and when rendering my
characters (in Flash) I made sure all phonemes, assets and symbols functioned properly, making the animator’s life just a little easier.
This was one of the funnest gigs I’ve ever had with some of the greatest people I have ever met.

Ship Shape was pitched but not picked up. It was the tale of seafaring shapes aimed at the preschool market.
We used a "cut out" paper technique for a child-like look.
This piece was titled, Lice During Wartime as one of our Great Bugs in History interstitials. I pitched the idea and wrote the original text. I did most, but not all of the illustrations.
On this sizzle reel, I was responsible for most of the art with the exceptions of the dominos, the hands and Ask Adam character. This real uniquely demonstrates my diverse artistic abilities.
This last snippet shows a few raw pieces from the second season and are from the Bookworm interstitial. I would storyboard and draw the bit and with my compositor, create the animation.
