How FREAKY

After Batman the Animated Series and the full length Batman the Animated Movie rapped, there was a short hiatus . A few projects were developed. Freakazoid 1995 was one of those projects that went into production . Here's some of the stuff I developed for that series.
A few caricatures I did of my co-workers during production.

That's SUPER

In 1996 during production on 'Superman the Animated Series' I was given a Villain to design and for the life of me I couldn't remember his name. I referred to the character as James Coburn ( 'In like Flint' 1967). It was my director's idea for me to taylor my design to look similar to Coburn.
I was given the assignment of designing Clark Kent's parents. Here's a sample design of the age progression for Mr. Kent.


















The photo on the right was taken of me during Halloween (along with a Philip Stark water bottle) , while I was in production on 'Superman the Animated Series'. If you look closely on the right side of my animation desk, you can see a sketch for "young Mrs. Kent". Below, is the final version of that design.

Development Haven

During the development period for Cartoon Network's 'Samurai Jack' 2001 a few designers on the crew had a shot at finalizing the design of "Jack". Here are a few of my " takes" for the "Jack" design.




Here's a lovely portrait of me by Carlos Ramos, during my time on 'Samurai Jack'.
