Ad-Libs: Seniors




From concept to editing, this video has been my baby. It was well received at our Big Show, which made me very happy, but it was a bit more sad than I intended it to be.
Truth in comedy?

I Like Moo Very Much

Moo.com knows a thing or two about business. They know that if they give out quality freebies, they'll attract a bunch of customers. I got 20 postcards made of 7-8 different art/images I've made, completely free. Although it took a while for them to arrive (they're a UK company), I love them. The images are clear and the paper is glossy and crisp. They make my images look very sexy. And for about a buck per card (plus shipping, blah), I can undoubtedly see myself getting some more made. Well done, moo.

Ad-Libs Dance Party

We're having a dance party to raise money for the National College Comedy Festival. I'm happy with this Terry Gilliam inspired poster!
Check it out: the biggest head has a halo/helmet made out of the seats of congress.
Freshman year I got this 1976 Government text book that the library was giving away, and I've just about used it up on various art projects.

Ad-Libs Tour: Desmond Hotel

I'm a member of The Ad-Liberal Artists (Ad-Libs), Skidmore's improv comedy group. Recently we had a gig at the Desmond Hotel in Albany, for the National College Personnel Association Convention (or something like that). This video chronicles the entire thing, from road trip to performance. It was an adventure of sorts.

Ad-Libs Bear

Part of an upcoming poster for an upcoming show. I scanned it to figure out what to do with the eyes. His eyes (and the scarf) are really the only cartoony things about him, and I like it.

The Stranger

I drew this guy on a piece of cardboard while watching Orson Welles' The Stranger. Not sure about the name of this actor, but he had a strong Peter Lorre vibe.

Amorous Animals

Submitted this to my college newspaper, I might start a series of "Amorous Animals."

3D Bird!

I'm taking a class called "Computer Imaging," which should really be called "Maya 101." I have absolutely no experience with computer animation programs, so this class has been really interesting (and at times incredibly frustrating). The modeling part isn't really my thing, I get more excited about the animation aspects. However, our most recent assignment was to make a bird (which we will later animate), and I think mine came out looking pretty decent. At least you can tell it's a bird!
Right?

Launchpad McQuack

I've been watching old episodes of Duck Tales recently, they're pretty great. They did, however, bring up some old questions about Launchpad. How he was able to work two jobs simultaneously is beyond me.

Newt Descending a Staircase

Is "Nude Descending a Staircase" not as well known a piece of art as I thought? Because I find myself having to explain this drawing. Maybe it's just my peers...

Yo-Yo Poster

One of the few posters that tells a story. Fat bully tries to show off his yo-yo skills, but smaller kid knows how to throw down.

Monster Poster

Poster for the first Ad-Libs show. I like drawing monsters, I'll probably do another.

Apartment Gestures


What happens when you make 1-minute gesture drawings of your housemates in MS Paint? Nothing impressive. But you do get to play around with colors.

S.I.C. - Seeing Eye Cats

Erik Anderson, esteemed friend and USC film student, entered this film in the Ed Wood film festival. The rules of the festival: the film you submit must be made in 24 hours time, somehow connect to a theme they give you (this year "my eyes are killing me" was the theme), and involve an object they give you (mirror). I was fortunate enough to be a small part of it. Apparently the film was a success, and won itself a slot at their red carpet screening! There's a crazy amount of entries, so that's a feat indeed. Show your support for S.I.C. and check it out:
