This summer I was hired to design some background characters for an already-in-production animated Christmas special of Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus.
I'm not sure if any of my creations (below) made the final cut, but if you watch it, be on the lookout for any of these unsavory characters lurking in the background crowd scenes. It was a good exercise for me to keep my usual cartoony style to a minimum and try to keep clothing and facial features closer to realistic proportions.
The special is showing on CBS in the States on Friday, December 11th, , 8/7c. Sponsored by Macy's.
Directed by the talented Pete Circuitt.

The Ugly Duckling Graphic NovelQWACK!
The new graphic novel I've illustrated is flying off the shelves now! It's the tale of the Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Anderson. After briefly living in (and loving) Copenhagen, I was honored to illustrate one of Denmark's favorite son's creations. It was loads of fun to create some bizarre characters but have the story revolve around much a sweet, misunderstood creature. The book was designed and published by the talented peeps at Stone Arch Books.
It's part of their Graphic Spin series where different artists and authors retell fairy and folk tales, give them a modern, creepy twist and jam it all into an epic graphic novel format!
You can buy it at Amazon US- HERE
Or Amazon UK- HERE
Let me know what you think of it!

I've been recently hired to do a series of character designs and illustrations for Denmark -based, Wooha!
Wooha! is a new kind of media company offering people advertisements on your phone- but only for brands you are interested in! No spam, no annoying commercials, AND you get paid for every one you receive. You can keep the money or you can donate it to charity!
You can see my illustrations here-
I've also animated the Wooha character for their first TV ad-
Buy your fitness cow today!
Translation- The first part of the commercial is a fake, annoying advertisement for Fitness Cow. It is interrupted by our man hammering down a sign saying "NO RIDICULOUS ADS". He then pulls out his friendly phone which pays him for receiving an ad he wants to see!
Commercial Produced by
Sweet Creative of Copenhagen DK

Hee Haw! We just wrapped the new cartoon for Kur Organic Superfoods! It's to promote the new Morning Glory Muesli that's hitting the shelves over in Denmark.
Again, the entire design is based on the Kur brand seed shape and style created by super talented Copenhagen-based design studio- Sweet Creative. Michael Adler Miltersen of Sepia Productions stirred up the knee slapping, toe tappin' tunes.

I'm very happy to announce that a book I illustrated for a few months last year has finally hit the shelves! It's the familiar tale of the Three Little Pigs but told and drawn in a much darker and weirder way in a graphic novel. It was a lot of fun to create the manic characters and their world- especially the Big Bad Wolf. The book was designed and published by the talented folks at Stone Arch Books.
It's part of their Graphic Spin series where different artists and authors retell old tales, give them a modern, creepy twist and jam it all into an epic graphic novel format!
It's brand new online but you can buy it at Amazon US- Hardcover or Paperback
Amazon UK- Hardcover or Paperback
If you end up buying a copy, please let me know what you like, what you don't and your favorite part! Here's two sample spreads from the book-
Stay tuned there's another one on the way later this year!
