Here is the film I did production design for:_________________________________________________________________________________
"An extraordinary homeless couple crash the strangest, yet humorous, 12 step meeting in Hollywood."
I had the honor of working with some incredibly talented people towards the end of my summer. E.M. Fredric is an incredible writer and actress and I was happy to do the Production Design and Illustrations for the film's puppets/ credits.
We got this shot in the Annex Building of Art Center and from writing time to final edit was done in a month and a half!!!! Shot in 28 hours! Record time, Cheers to everyone in this project: E.M. Fredric, Dana Michael Woods, Ralph Guzzo, Emery Emery, Catherine Carlen, Paul Jacek, Dylan Bocanegra, Heather Henderson & Andy Goldberg, Dave Edison, Robert Herrera, Bob Nuchow, Rohan Ali, Jacob Ross. Working with Scott LAnd was also a treat the lead puppeteer from Team America: World Police (2004)
Special thanks to Tim Flattery and Ross LaManna without their help this film wouldn't be. This film will be touring quite a few film festivals across the US and even in Australia fingers crossed for Sundance!!!
BIRTH / DEATH of GOJIRA
This originally started out as the "birth" of Gojira as he was in a somewhat fetal position during my posing and I felt no one had ever really tackled him underwater. Quickly this evolved into taking the iconic scene of Gojira's death from the original 1954 movie and combining the two hence birth/ death.
THE MAKING OF THE GERMAN ROCKETEER
Concept: I was always a fan of the Rocketeer, and I always wish he had a proper nemesis. So I created the German Rocketeer.

The model had adouble mastectomy and chose not to have reconstructive surgery.This series is about giving women empowering choices about their bodies.This will be in my upcoming art show with a series of stencil works I have done.There are three pieces this being one of them._________________________________________________________________________________
24x36"I was commissioned by CHP (California Highway Patrol) to execute a piece onthe First Lady of California Maria Shriver. Within this piece I decided to elaborateon her Minerva Award along with our California State flag combined with her loveof the Santa Monica Pier near her residency with the Golden Gate bridge fading into the background.This is currently hanging in the offices of Ms. Shriver_________________________________________________________________________________
24x36"This piece depicts Conan at his most majestic state grabbingthe bull by the horns in the clouds at MT. OLYMPUS among the god'sAndy Richter being Zeus!
18x24"This Piece was in homage to the writers strike inwhich Conan took on Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.This image depicts Colbert and Stewart picking on Conan in a Three Stooges setting.These are currently hanging in his Warner Bros office in Burbank, CA_________________________________________________________________________________
24x36"I did this piece because music heals and Rod Stewart is an amazing entertainer.His career spans over 4 decades. Mr. Stewart is a thyroid cancer survivor andboth he and his wife support cancer causes.On a personal note, my mother played Van Morrison's"Have I Told You Lately That I Love You" at my father's funeral.My father dedicated the song to her when it came out and Stewart made it a hit again._________________________________________________________________________________
24x36"I believe the piece speaks for itself. It is to commemorate
Dr. Ernie Bodai and his race to cure Cancer and spread awareness.
I had the honor of meeting Dr Ernie Bodai, he is one of the most down to
earth and well spoken gentlemen I have ever met.The stencil takes his already successful Breast Cancer Stamp
and his up and coming men's Prostate Cancer Stamp and collages
them with the USPS logo which will take his message and spread it across the world.
