2017 Stanley Cup Champions

Heh, Sorry for a lack of progress updates this one. For this year's design, I opted to use a lot more color outlines for some of the interior details. Lips, patches, eyes, and jersey stitching outlines were all treated with color. That simple tweak really makes this one stand out from previous years.


2016 Holiday Print Update

I should have the final art ready for this year's holiday print ready to start shipping on December 10th. You will be able to preorder this print starting Monday, November 28. This print will be available in two sizes - 11"x17" and 22"x17". The 22"x17" will be a numbered edition limited to 50 copies.


Print illustration progress will be posted here and various social media spots.

Thought it might be cool to occasionally post some mix tape action comprised of stuff I listen to while working. The track list links sends you to the iTunes store. 

About the Archer gifs

When looking through the Archer gallery, you will see a bunch of rough animated gifs like this:

These are the keyframe animations that the illustrators create for the character animators. Once the animators have all the parts they need, they will fine tune the action by rotating parts to fill in the gaps between each keyframe. This method of "puppet animation" provides animators the elements needed to create fluid movement using minimal drawings. For example - a 2 second traditional animation would need up to 60 frames(drawings). The same 2 seconds above was created with 7 drawings.
