About
Stunning! Amazing!

I am an illustrator and comic artist working out of the San Francisco Bay Area. My work has seen print in the East Bay Express, the Lavapunch comics anthology, and the Missed Connections and Bridge Project anthologies. On the web, my work has appeared on the frontpages of XIP, Retrocrush, Somethingawful, and creativeskin.

Right now, I am currently working as a storyboard artist at Cartoon Network Studios on "Regular Show" by JG Quintel. It's been a culture shock fer sure-- for one, I can't get over the fact that people are paying me cash monies to draw, and for two, it's impossible to get a decent banh mi in Burbank! I used to work in Silicon Valley as a web developer at National Semiconductor. I still remember a lot of HTML, CSS, Java, PHP, Perl, JSP and javascript, HONEST!!!

So sad this joke got cut

Not gonna lie? this one was pretty draining, with pretty much every character in every shot, a few songs, an acapella version of Keeping it Cool that took FOREVER to record, and one of the most complicated mixes we ever had to deal with. See more, including more Thomas, a completely cut montage, and weird Mordecai faces on the storyboard on scribd!

weebtrash:

the sound engineers must have taken the day off for the episode of regular show that aired tonight bc all of the sounds were garageband stock instruments. y?all got mark mothersbaugh from devo on yr compositional team and you still published this entry level junk??? c?mon quintel, yr better then that.

Well, allow me to retort. We recorded a way nicer version with a pro setup. It was ultimately decided to use the less polished demo version.

The Mordecai and the Rigbys - Keeping it Cool Hey everybody!...


The Mordecai and the Rigbys - Keeping it Cool

Hey everybody! Hope you enjoyed the episode. Here?s the demo of the song I wrote for ?The Return of the Mordecai and the Rigbys?, Keeping it Cool. It?s kind of a Nirvana/Thin Lizzy/Journey/Cheap Trick power pop chimera. This is me on vocals, not JG.

Me (guitar), Sean (bass and guitar), Krandal (producing and solo), Marcus (keys) and Clinton (drums) spent a weekend and recorded a hi fidelity version of this. It was a blast playing it live!! It sounds way more professional and you can hear it a little bit in the episode when they?re practicing. There?s no vocals though.

Keeping it Cool pro version

B-B-B-BONUS! Demo of horrible Grunge song I also wrote.

Lyrics:

Sometimes I dream about that AC, AC

Cold Waves flowing over, over me

Feelin? Hot, maybe it?s a state of mind

Think cold to pass the pass the time

Snowmen and Snowstorms

There?s not much to it

Think things like, ice cubes

Igloos and fridges

Chillax?.

K-k-k-keeping it cool x 2

Sometimes I dream about Ice Planet X

A distant planet way colder, colder than the rest

That?s where Lord Blizzord resides

Think about his kingdom to pass the pass the time

Ice-liths and Ice-henge

There?s not much to it

Getting blasted by ice rays by

Blizzard wizards ice druids

Chillax?

I thought this was funny but yeah it would have killed the spell...






I thought this was funny but yeah it would have killed the spell of the episode
