Into The Woods

Some friends and I recently made a short film. We wanted to create a horror movie that was for kids with kids. No gore, no blood, no slasher style horror stuff. I’m really proud of the cast for their hard work and commitment. These guys aren’t actors and I think they did a really great job.

Update

Here’s a look at some shirts I designed and printed for The Worlders. We wanted to make a shirt that worked two ways so with a little bit of elbow grease we produced these guys. Super large print on black and white shirts. Modeled by the grizzly Colin.

The second thing I’m posting is a sketchbook. I have like 3 sketch books going on at all times for different things. I keep one for writings/ideas/random, one for when I travel and a third for a special topic. This sketchbook was based on portraits. I use the sketchbooks to work on my drawing skills but mostly to play around with technique.

Silver Screen Society

I recently contributed to the Silver Screen Society for their month’s theme Mad Max. After a ton of thumbnails and trial and error images I ended up on a pretty simple execution. The sign at the beginning of the movie stuck with me the most so I decided to render that sucker up. I think the skull on the sign is a really nice foreshadow for the rest of the movie. Here’s my image below and the rest of the contributors (added all month long) can be seen at the link above.

Who’s Your Mama Festival

Downpour Creative recently designed the collateral for Kent Standing Rock’s “Who’s Your Mama Festival”

The theme for this year was conservation and extinction. We wanted to focus on some animals that are going extinct or had already gone extinct. We dug up some very old educational images and got to work.

Light Years – World Burns Out

Downpour Creative recently filmed a live concert video for Light Years at Now That’s Class. Check it out below!

*A HUGE thank you to Dane for his assistance in filming this video. While most of his footage was unusable (not Dane’s fault, the cameras fault) he put more work into this video than I have ever put into a video. Yeah, he’s the guy in the crowd getting smashed by stage divers. I think by the end of the shoot he was bleeding from his forehead. Dane, thank you. You are the toughest man I know.

Japan – Overall

Here are some pictures from Japan taken with my phone over the whole trip. Some of them might have been posted on my Old Saw Tumblr thing but that’s okay.

Not my usual breakfast, but not too shabby.

Octopus Balls. Bits of octopus put into a dough ball covered with onions and some amazing sauce. One of my favorite meals on the trip.

Chocolate banana pizza and squid ink pizza. Both delicious.

As far as meals were concerned, this was it for me. The best. I think it costed six dollars and was so filling and tasty. Noodle bowl with dumplings and side salad and Japanese Hi-C (yes, it tastes better than American Hi-C, I don’t care if someone told me it was the same, for some reason it just tasted better).

Japanese pastries beat out American pastries as well.
