Special thank you to Mark Siegal and the 5 Worlds team for the opportunity!

Below are a couple storyboard iterations - click to see them bigger!

Changed in favor of making all referenced scenes based on Book 3, which had not been published yet. 
Another version submitted at the same time as above, where all the animations came from Book 2.

Final approved storyboards. We slightly changed Oona's shot so there were would another focus on her hand, to go with the overall theme.

Why do Cats and Dogs...?

"Why do cats/dogs chase laser pointers?"

Here you will find a series of animations that go along with data visualizations, based on the most Googled 'Why do cats/dogs...?" results! 

"Why do cats sit in boxes?"

"Why do cat knead?"

"Why do dogs eat grass?"

"Why does my dog shake?"

Special thank you to Nadieh Bremer for giving me an excuse to draw lots and lots of cats and dogs. :P

In 2016 I was tasked with the creation of the story, animation, and gameplay concept of the game! Let's go on a journey with a selection of work...

Kissfist! ASL Stickers for Google Keyboard

I collaborated with illustrator/comedian Jessica Flores and the Google Sticker team to create a 24 sticker set based based on American Sign Language! Now available through the Google Keyboard app.

Mega Man 30th Anniversary Illustration Set

A series of illustrations counting down to the 30th anniversary of the Megaman game series, which greatly influenced my decision to become an animator. 

Excluding the first and last piece, each illustration is based on the ending of a main title classic game, starting from 10 to 1.

Magic Cat Academy - Storyboards

Below are some storyboard variations for the opening and ending cinematics of the 2016 Halloween Google Doodle game! Click on the images to enlarge them.

To see more of my concept art and animation work for this game, take a look at this post!


The original motivation for the player was to get your stolen hat back and save your school!
 (The fire turned out to be a bit much.)

Finally, we settled on getting your book back (as well as stopping the rampaging ghosts). To save on file size and to be more efficient, I changed the intro to take place in one shot! No more camera panning. 

(Pt. 1)

We also aimed to place the tutorial within the intro. A "tutorial" backdrop would fall down to indicate you were in tutorial mode! We ended up moving it to right before the first level to not disrupt the flow. 
(Pt. 2)

Ending, resulting in the final score screen for the players. Black bars would appear so the player would know they were watching a cutscene.
(There was originally a gameplay feature where you could choose to rescue your friends, and depending on who you saved would affect who would appear in the ending.)


Here's a different story concept: protect the trick-or-treaters!
