The second half of the year is full of great comic conventions, beginning with the famous San Diego Comic Con. There’s also a Sandy Eggo Comic Con, but it is much more poorly attended and there’s syrup everywhere.
While I’m not going to SDCC this year, I will be appearing at Fandemonium in Boise and Salt Lake Comic Con in August and September, respectively. I’ve been creating a lot of these “chibi” style character redesigns for conventions, and they’ve been fairly well received. It always makes me smile when a female fan, especially the younger tots, make a b-line for my booth and drool over these cuties. It makes it all worth it!
In other exciting news, Disney Infinity 3.0 finally has a release date! It’s hitting the U.S. shelves on August 30th, along with a plethora of great characters and play sets. I worked mainly on the Star Wars content, and specifically on the “Force Awakens” Play Set. I think you’re really going to enjoy what the team has done this time. It’s truly a labor of love.

I just returned from the Denver Comic Con, and I have to say… it was a blast! I got to meet so many new people and reconnect with others I’ve meet at previous Colorado events. If you are one of the great people who stopped to say hi, feel free to sign up for my newsletter in the sidebar of this site to stay updated with news and promotions.
On that note, I’m currently trying something new with my online shop. Check back next week and I should have all of my new products, including this adorable Wonder Woman print, available for purchase. Thanks again for all your support!
While making Disney Infinity: Monsters University Play Set, we realized there was a need for some non-violent, playful ways to interact with the students on campus. I came up with a little side story in which Scott Squibbles (Squishy) had a biology class from which he rescued some lab animals. These lab animals were little octopus-like round creatures that loved to be thrown through the air and bounce off things.
Tossing these “Squibble Balls” at the students would have resulted in chuckles and silliness, something we really wanted to fit into the M.U. Play Set. I drew this concept sheet to not only explain the idea, but also to give an idea of the flavor of humor that should have accompanied the concept. Sometimes it’s more important to inspire a theme in a piece of concept of art than it is to nail down the actual visual.
Sadly, the Squibble Ball didn’t make the cut due to production deadlines, but I thought I’d share it with you here to enjoy.
I’m going back in the archives and finding some of my older work to post. In this short storyboard from the Pirates Play Set for Disney Infinity, you can see how a few extra pose frames can really help indicate performance for the animators.
