hercules cartoon

I’m excited to finally share what I did for the current Guzu Gallery show here in Austin! 

The show is all about cartoons and animation and I just HAD to do something from my favorite Disney song (any maybe favorite Disney movie), Hercules. Hercules is incredibly underrated as far as I’m concerned! 

Prints are available HERE.

That what have cartoons/animated movies taught me? Boy, let me tell you!

Adventure Time- Your journey will be filled with obstacles in the most unlikely situations, but you will be always be accompanied by the people you know and love. You’re not alone.

Aladdin- Don’t change yourself over the person you love. They will and need to love you by who you are!

Ben 10- If you find something, use it for the world’s advantage. Go out there. Make yourself useful!

Big Hero 6- Same as Ben 10, but still. Go and show the world what you got. You’re a legacy.

Brother Bear- I know that this is cliche but is the typical “you don’t know what you have until you lose it” lesson, but it’s still really meaningful.

Chicken Little- People might not be at your side, even your family, but your friends always will.

Dumbo- Don’t let your physical condition or identity stop you from chasing your dreams.

Fairy Godparents- Just literally, be careful what you wish for.

Gravity Falls- This show helped me to create a better link with my sister and helped me see the world in a different way. Your family and friends will always be your best allies!

Hercules- Doesn’t matter where you’re from, you still can go to distance!

Miraculous Ladybug- Don’t let your negative feelings control what you do! They can create disastrous consequences!

Steven Universe- Your purpose is something that you’ll find eventually. Your parents are leaving a purpose within you, it’s just a matter of time to find out what it is.

Voltron- A group or a team might be different physically, mentally, and morally but it’ll find a way to make things work. Teamwork.

Winx Club/World of Winx- Same as Voltron. Your world is out there, your purpose and the way you see things will change completely.

Zootopia- Well, heck. Try everything. Don’t give up, just try everything once again and again. Society might establish something, but do what you know it’s right.

My 2D Effects Animation Class Presentation Titles. Part 2/2

These past few months were my first as a special effects animation teacher at our local Universidad de Artes Digitales. And so I decided to have fun with the first slide of each presentation. And there’s Prof. Axolotl cracking jokes and making comments.
Can you guess all the references even if they’re in Spanish?

Yeah, I had a dream. I dreamed I would train the greatest hero there ever was. So great the gods would hang a picture of him in the stars for everyone to see. And everyone would say, “That’s Phil’s boy.” That’s right. Ah, but dreams are for rookies, kid. A guy can only take so much disappointment.

“I will find my way, I can go the distance”

One of my personal favourite Disney films of all time and a childhood favourite. Yet despite its inaccuracies to the source, it got me into Greek Mythology.

If I hadn’t studied animation, I probably would have studied the classics.

 Also worth noting, that Hercules came out 20 years ago today.

So today was perfect to draw this “Major Hunk” (Thalia. The muse of comedy). But seriously, He is pretty gorgeous and I think it explains why I have a thing for beefy dudes.
