Let’s say… his powers kept mutating and the dudes at the gifted school built him a suit that he needs to keep from bamfing away.

The first one is his resting state… and the second one is when he’s getting ready to teleport.

“Disneyland Dubai” 2017

Very few details are known about this blue-sky project, but when this concept art surfaced, it sent theme parks fans in a tizzy. This park, which, like Shanghai Disneyland, changes up the castle-style format, seemingly featured an all-Fantasyland entry land, an indoor Pixar land featuring Cars, Adventureland, a Star Wars-heavy Tomorrowland, a park-wide train, and an in-park hotel attached to the park’s castle. No such project was ever officially mentioned by Disney, so, although exciting, Disneyland Dubai remains on the drawing board.

The dire wolves are bigger in the books… I’m not basing the look of anything from the show or being too specific with anything really… Just having fun! It would be sweet if the show made the wolves big though! 


Thanks for all the great emails and questions about putting a portfolio together. I’ve been getting a lot of the same questions and decided it would be a better use of my time to write it all out. I’ve derived the content from from my own experience and internships before having a full-time job. As you’ll read, a portfolio is the most important thing you’ll do when applying to a job. I’ve tried to be as detailed as possible.

These are the first five pages in a series of posts about how to layout a portfolio, including content, images, size, material and everything in between. Part I is for the artist still deciding what to do for a discipline. I’ve catered the last three pages to a visual development portfolio for animation but the principles can be applied to any artistic presentation (illustration, design, even interior design).

These are my opinions and I realize there are many ideas out there which are also fantastic. What I have written are simple truths and tips I’ve learned along the way. This doesn’t represent a studio I work or will work for. I hope it is helpful and can provide some perspective into a competitive portfolio and help you land your next job!   

Growing up I was really into comics and it was one of the things that inspired me to pursue a career in art. So here’s a quick painting I did for fun of Iceman to kind of pay homage to my early inspirations. It’s not based off of anything in the movies or comics… just having fun!

i’m in consideration as a visual development finalist for blue sky studios summer internship! this may be the farthest i get in portfolio reviews, so i wanted to share the good news while it lasts. considering the recent feedback from facebooks art and animation team on my work as well, im feeling really blessed!

Happy First Anniversary to the Peanuts Movie! By far one of my absolute favorite films to come out of Blue Sky Studios! I may not have worked on this film, but I can just FEEL the love, effort, and fear that was put into this film, and I adore it for that.

This picture was pretty difficult for me because I’m not used to drawing group shots. I can only draw like two people together. XD But I still pursued! Even if it didn’t come out QUITE as good as I had hoped it would. Especially how I drew Linus and Lucy, I’m cringing so bad! XD

But I hope you guys like it. Cause I’m certainly happy that I drew it. :D
