Project "Spring" first existed as a short story written during my international study in Shigaraki, Japan. It's about a boy who gains the modest ability to see into people - see their inner desires and physical manifestations of their spirit. It's a superpower of understanding, and since writing this story I've begun exploring the idea of understanding as superpower. The short story grew into plans for a short film, and now is heading toward existing as both short film and interactive game.

Project Spring :
Learning By Doing
The seed planted by Project: "Spring" jumpstarted a journey that took me deeper into the processes of animating in 3D, and constructing a personal way of communication with 3D with my art. I don't have a traditional education in animation, and thus my learning process tends to begin with an idea, and as its author I work rigorously focus its message, solidify its visual aesthetic, and approach learning new things from the perspective of an artist with a goal in mind.
This section of my site I have dedicated to talking about this journey, and some of the many things I gained a deep understanding of by way of working, failing, and having to find new solutions.
Experiments and Thoughts
The last section of my site I have dedicated to the past projects that were seminal in the development of my main project. This includes not only past animations, but also a number of sketches I've made over the last year, exploring different ideas and forms. I will do my best to keep this page updated as I continue to sketch daily, and stumble upon more interesting ideas.
I hope you like them!
