SPA-FON dog!

Spa Fon is a nonsence word from Mad Magazine, like potrezebe. I did these sketches for an idea about a school for dorky boys. I wanted the theme to be the meaninglessness of being a kid in school and a meaningless name for the series. Spa Fon!

Ice cream rocker

This piece has an interesting history. Before I moved to LA and began working in animation out there I lived in NYC and wanted to start an ice cream company with scary characters and names on the packaging. My friend Amy Wallin took over the concept and tried for some time to get the company off the ground. Meanwhile We started spumco and I was painting all of the backgrounds for the pilot episode. One background had a Jackson Pollack type painting on the wall and I really enjoyed throwing paint on the BG (this became a real style trademark of the series). Anyway, after I finished the BG painting, I wanted to keep flinging paint and had this idea inspired by my friend Henry Porch and his gothic band London After Midnight. I sent the painting to Amy and she had t-shirts made from it. She sent me a few shirts and I threw one into a drawer and forgot about it. One day I got an idea to scan the shirt and here is the result. It's not as nice as the original painting but it's all I have.

Jimmy Neutron Storyboards

This is a small sample of storyboards I did for the film Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius at DNA productions.

Battlin' Babes

Here are some sketches I did for an adult cartoon concept. I think the concept speaks for itself.

These bottom two were inked by the Famous Bruce Timm.

ARF N' NARF poster

Here is a poster I did for a movie based on a video game concept that Jim Gomez and I have created. The background is a portion of a painting done by Bill Wray for the concept. I really wanted the characters to look as they were actually 3D images created in Maya.

Me and my Cannolis

Back in 2001 director Trish Doolan asked me to do some presentation work for her script, "Me and My Cannolis"
I had an idea to do a comic of several scenes in Trish's script using images from magazines, the web and adding John Cusak with Photoshop and adding rain FX over everything.

Presentation artwork

I had fun with the rainy outside here. I blocked out very general flat colored shapes, put random white dots here and there, put a lot of noise over the layer then did a vertical motion blur. Instant rain!

It's a MAD MAD MAD MAD world

A friend let me scan his press booklet from this great comedy classic which featured two illustrations by one of the greatest cartoonists that has ever lived, Jack Davis.

Rand Robinson storyboards

These are a few panels from a storyboard I did for my friend, director Jerry Rees for his film "Rand Robinson Robot Repairman". It was a really great project but alas it never got made. I'm not really sure who the copyrights belong to.

Old Business Card

Here's another old business card of mine. The design of the baby in the tank baby cart was one I did for the movie Twins which was rejected so I made a card out of it.


Some of you may know the wonderful creepy cartoon art of Eric Piggors. Eric asked me to do a painting of the kind of funny cartoon creeps he draws so well. I loved Eric's work and was really getting into photoshop at the time so I asked if he would mind digital art and he was cool with it. I had the idea to do a fake magazine cover so this is what I ended up with. I think everybody ought to contact Eric and help him get POX on the news stands. Check out Eric's work at . Copyright Eric Piggors 2007.


A while backI optioned a script from the very talented writers Kenneth Oppel and Robert Martin called Mr. UFO. I did quite a lot of artwork for the pitch. This is a fun movie poster concept that I cobbled together from several classic Sci-fi posters. I added the faces of Drew Carey and Ryan Styles who I thought would be great for the film.

This is a Photoshop illustration I did of the alien characters.

Personal Film Project

My idea for this guy was an older Bill Murray type.

This is an unfinished Photoshop illustration.

Here are a lot of different concepts for the heroine.

These are some character designs and Photoshop illustrations I did for a film project that I co-created with Larry Hama.

Screaming Skull logo

This is my old company logo. I thought I'd put it in to start things off with a scream.
