How've you been?
I know, I know. I've been gone for so long now, neglecting my DA page for... well, a long time! It's not you. No, no, It's me. Really. Ok, no stop, you don't have to start breaking things and yanking your hair like that. Let me explain.
Well, what's been keeping me busy:

So far, the reviews have been extremely positive!

As for other stuff that has kept me busy... well, did a couple of big audio/sound design/music composition projects for a live show with my good friend Hanakia. We're hoping to put it all to video and make the show available through youtube in the coming months. Been getting my head back into the music vibe, and that's been really good. Looking forward to doing more.
I've also been doing some serious studying and going through a creative growth spurt of sorts for the last couple of months. I was given some great advice by my buddy, Chris, who said I should flesh out my portfolio with some more actual concept work, so I've been doing something fun with that. I'll be posting all of that stuff shortly!
Got some video projects lined up, as well as some more Intergalactic Kung Fu Zombies content which will be coming soon. Trying out & experimenting with additional tools & techniques for when I start doing the web ani-comic episodes!
Anyway... here's a sample page of the Nosferatu book, Enjoy!
