Home to Roost


Time moves in numbers. Time travels quickly. Months seem like days and after much work, finally an update! I'm back in ATL after working in Hollywood, CA, the last couple of weeks. It was cool to finally put a face to a few clients and link up with some great artists. Check out the work of Jahmad Rollins of !llworkz , Eliza Ivanova who just won the 2009 Cal Arts Producer show, Chris Prynoski, Co-Owner of Titmouse, very talented dude and nice guy to boot, he even had an old book of xeroxed copies of Coon skin model sheets! He was nice enough to show me much of the highly anticipated BET's Black Panther starring Djimon Hounsou, which looks pretty impressive and Tyree Dillihay, dope character designer & artist, currently directing Da Jammies. LA is a very interesting place, so many different cultures. I always learn something there, like never to ask for turkey sausage in an Armenian resturant. My film bug is getting stronger. I've been inspired by the works of Chris Cunningham, Michel Gondry, Floria Sigismondi & Stephane Sednaoui. Beautiful Artistry. Challenging sensibilities. I Iike being challenged. New links added to Film section!!! Here is some really early development. Back 2 Work. peace.
