This is one of the first commissions I’ve done. The image was used as illustration for an independently-produced horror film called Viral Demon (now called e-Demon), directed by Jeremy Wechter. I did this for him back in the summer of 2015, and the film was submitted to a New York horror film festival on the Halloween of 2016, and Jeremy won a Best Director award. Two years later at the same time of the year, the film managed to get a limited big-screen release in New York as well as Los Angeles, and then became available for rent/purchase on Amazon, Google, iTunes, Vudu, and Blu-ray.
Little Roo is a soon-to-be-published book written by Chuck Miller, in beloved memory of his passed 6-year-old daughter. I illustrated for him, wanting to give it a style that stood out as unique and pretty to look at, as I felt that this tribute to his late daughter was a wonderful gesture on his part that should be commended. The project was successfully crowd-funded on Kickstarter, and the book is set to be released by BabyBooks (both digital and hardcover) by February 2019.
Here is one of my demonstrations with hand-drawn animation, using ToonBoom.
I hope that if you see this you will share it and do your part to spread good word for the holidays!
