“In this third installment of my 2d drawing sessions, I have created a little Anime style tribute to the late Tezuka Osamu . Born in Osaka Prefecture, he is best known as the creator of Astro Boy, Kimba the White Lion, and Black Jack. He is often credited as the “Godfather of Anime” and is often considered the Japanese equivalent to Walt Disney, who served as a major inspiration during his formative animation/cartooning years. His prolific artistic output, pioneering drawing techniques, and innovative redefinitions of animation genres earned him such titles as “the father of manga”, “the god of comics”, and “kamisama of manga”. Hope you like.
This is the 2nd instalment of the Draw Session tutorials. The result of this exploration came out looking like it could be a ultra rare ancient Pokémon. Hope you enjoy.

With the goal of creating process and how-to videos on the regular, I’ve created the first of what I’m calling (for lack of a better title) Draw Session. The videos will basically show the process I go through in sketching out concepts designs.
I was finally able to sit down with Chris Bentzen for an interview. Thankfully he was able to cut together my ramblings into a coherent slice of goodness.

I put together a little how-to video for Stikalicious™
I love hearing positive stories of DCTO’s impact on peoples lives. DCTO has a strong message, and that message was the main motivation in choosing to make it my first vinyl project. I think it was about a year ago or so that I received an email from a fellow named Antony Gusscott. He said he was a fan of my work and had bought DCTO, and it helped him accomplish one of his goals…

This character was created for the game ModNation Racers build by UFG (United Front Games) under Sony. I was lucky enough to have met the crew over at UFG a few years back. I was asked to come on as a consultant to bring some street level vinyl to the table…
Here’s a little 3D concept I built last year on Mad’s Madl. The final pieces were actually printed out on a Zcorp 510 in a few different sizes as test of the machine. Now a few live on my desk and a couple call Mad Toy Design home. Decided to do a quick animation to show it off. Steve Talkowski was kind enough to do me a quick render that I was able to slap into iMovie and voilà!
