GIGGLERS!

Guess what! We submitted again to Channel 101 this past month, and got accepted into the screening! It played in front of our friends and a live LA audience. A great night was had by all. This brand new show is called "Gigglers"! It stars myself, along with Kali Fontecchio and Tara Billinger as the adorable title characters- The Gigglers.


Also co-starring Matt Danner, Deanna Rooney and Jack Cusumano! Thank you all so much for working and giggling with me during this production. I am super proud of it and I have only my friends to thank for it.


And sure, why not, I felt like doing fanart for my own show. DEAL WITH IT. :P

Pop Some Popcorn, Sit Back, and Enjoy...

SO much going on lately! To start off, here's our Channel 101 pilot that we submitted for the April 2011 screening. It's called "Drive-Thru Confessions" and it was created and written by myself and Kali Fontecchio!



It stars myself, Kali, Abed Gheith, Myke Chilian, Eric Bauza, Matt Danner, Scott Gairdner and Molly Bates Johnson, along with awesome visual effects and on-set assistance by Tara Billinger and Jack Cusumano. A HUGE thanks to you guys, it was a really fun project and I’m so proud of it!


Next up is a freaking amazing animated segment that Kali worked on the whole past month, featuring her own Maude Macher in Episode 16 of EVERYTHING! I helped cut the animatic together, and did the segment's final editing, sound effects and music! She really did an incredible job on this, I could just watch it on loop all day long!!!!

The Maude segment begins at 02:10, but make sure to watch the whole episode anyway because EVERYTHING rules!



Guess what! Zach Bellissimo's senior thesis is done done DONE!! And the end results are incredible. I cannot show it online at this time for obvious reasons, but I did help color about a dozen scenes throughout the second half of the film. Here's the poster, to help you anticipate the full film soon!


Finally, Channel 101's other hit show Googy asked us to be in their latest episode, Googy #4! You can find Kali, Jack, Tara and myself all as Halloween partygoers at the ending's Wolf Boy (Myke Chilian!!) song. I'm a FrankenNico!



And here are some props Jack and I created to decorate Googy's bedroom in Episode 3. Thanks to Willy Roberts and Mike Manasewitsch for inviting us to be a part of their fantastic show!



Okay, even MORE fun to share, soon!

4 QWAZY!

Straight off the success of last year's Budzone.com, we bring you a brand new energy drink made especially for dudes, bros, and hot chicks. 4 QWAZY!

Starring Kali Fontecchio, Molly and Carl Johnson, Jack Cusumano, and yours truly. Special appearances by Eric Bauza, Myke Chilian, Matt Danner and Bill Kopp! Music by David Gemmill! Did I mention Bill Kopp, the creator and voice of Eek The Cat, is in this? 4 QWAZY is indeed an all-star cast!



This is probably my favorite video we've ever done. The film shoots were entirely too much fun. Plus so many awesome friends put a lot of time and effort into this, so I want to thank you all. There's much, much more to come!


Alexis Prius and Carmindi will return...

Cartoon Burgers and Astronaut Dragons!

Hey! Fun stuff for you in this post! First up, my pal the amazing Myke Chilian's McBUSTERS series has just wrapped up it's 3rd and final installment!!! I helped a little bit on it!




Which means if you haven't already, click below to watch the ENTIRE kickass series NOW!



Only on Channel 101! I've been a huge 101 fan for about 6 years now, and it's amazing to finally be getting involved in it. I drew a teeny tiny bit of stuff for this episode of McB's: like an obese man, a cartoon heart, a couple props, and (an unused) Jesus Christ himself.







A couple of us even make a cameo in this third/final episode. Look out!


Along with all this, holy crap times are crazy and busy! Working on my own stuff has been (only slightly) placed on the backburner right now, on account of full-time studio work I've been doing for the show Nickelodeon BrainSurge. I'm pretty proud of a lot of it so far, and when the episodes air on TV and it's okay to share some of my artwork for it, I will do so here!

I've also been doing some commission work for my friends Sarah and Zack, and their band The Runaway Five. Here's a black and white t-shirt design for them based on one of their songs about a dragon in outer space, wearing an astronaut suit. Therefore she cannot breathe fire, which is a tragic event indeed.



And a venue poster for them! Still a work in progress but this is the gist of it.



Lido Pizza tablemat doodles! Complete with pizza grease stain. Scribble and Skarfy enjoy some [vegan] pepperoni pizza.

I know times here at my blog have been slow lately, but I'm just drawing so much stuff that simply cannot be shared online yet. Thank you guys for still visiting here though. :)
My next post, which is actually in just a couple days, is going to have something extremely special. Get yourself ready for: 4 QWAZY!!
