Johnny Taco Artwork
March 15th, 2010 | View Post

Me with the real Johnny Taco (he's on the left).
I've been working on a small project out here in Los Angeles called Johnny Taco with a friend of mine, Manny Ruiz. Basically it's a mobile restaurant idea that only sells breakfast tacos since the breakfast taco is evidently not sold in Los Angeles. If you're from Los Angeles and you say to yourself, "isn't that the same as a breakfast burrito", it's not.

Anyway there is a guy by the name of Jamie Oliff who painted all of the artwork at the Dresden and I asked him if he would do the artwork for us. The idea was to have a caricature of Johnny from the Dresden holding a taco. I like where he's going with this.

As a side note, I added in all of the restaurant-esque stuff.

Johnny Taco in all of his glory

The Famous Fisher-Lyons Cherry Pie
February 28th, 2010 | View Post
Since Liz works late at the Dresden sometimes, I thought I would make us a delicious cherry pie using the recipe that my friends, Grant and Ashley Fisher, taught me. And since the house was empty and I didn't have much else to do, I thought it would be especially fun to make a "how-to" video for the internet as well.

SkiKujda 2010

I started working on a video just for fun in the middle of this trip, but since everyone started getting into it so much, I went ahead and finished it out.

Stop Motion on the Road
February 16th, 2010 | View Post
Sometimes it gets a little boring on the road. On our way from Texas to Los Angeles, Liz and I stopped for dinner at the IHOP in Ft. Stockton. It's generally the last place I'd want to stop, but since it's really the ONLY place there (at least during certain hours), it was kind of necessary.

Anyway, for some reason we made a stop action from the table. We stayed in Las Cruces for the night and rather than sleep, I decided to put this little ditty together. I always love it when the title sequence and credits are twice as long as the video itself.

4th Grade Flipbook
November 28th, 2009 | View Post
Part of my process and desire for digitizing everything in my life is so that I can finally part with it all without actually losing the memories of what the content contained. I came across this old and very worn-out book that I had used in 4th grade to make a flipbook out of.

A flipbook, for those who don't understand the term, is just when you take a book of pretty much any variety and create an animation across the pages. Hence when you flip the book, the pictures are animated.

Anyway, this was a short flipbook that I had come across. I scanned each of the pages, threw it into Adobe Premiere, and set it to music.

Acoustic Beats

I've been playing in this acoustic style for a number of years, but wanted to lay down a short track so I could share with people on YouTube and Facebook. This particular clip is not really a song, but more so just a clip of my style.
