Learn. Grow. Expand. By following your passion.

When I was a kid, I liked learning new things, yet I couldn’t wait to get home from school and work on my models. It was one of my passions. I had a blast opening up the box and building it piece by piece to match the box’s image. I was a big fan of […]

The War of Art

I recently finished reading The War of Art, a great book written by the talented Steven Pressfield about his creative process and how he fights the good fight every day. If you are expecting something similar to his usual writings like The Legend of Bagger Vance, this is not it.  This book was a game-changer […]

Responsive logo design: a necessity, not a luxury

I recently designed a logo style guide for my buddy over at Texas Racing Syndicate. As part of my creative process, I researched current trends and came across the concept of responsive logos and branding. And when I talk about responsive logos, I’m not only talking about just resizing; it can go beyond that. The concept […]

A Fresh Start

Happy New Year everyone! Last year I took a big step and updated my studio. Those were big changes that still seem fresh to me today even though the calendar says it’s been a year. (Where did the time go?)  To kick-off the new decade, I couldn’t t think of a better way to celebrate […]

Have yourself a chilly little Christmas

Happy Holidays, everybody! For many years we have carried the tradition of featuring our cats in our Christmas cards. Sadly, our little buddies have passed, so even though they are not the main characters of this year’s Christmas card, I wanted to honor them by celebrating their memories.

Hot Air And The Blowfish: a new addition to SHOP-SMC!

We can all be full of hot air or be on pins and needles sometimes but that does not mean we can’t find common ground with one another. In fact, we would all be surprised by how much we have in common, and that is worth celebrating big time with a simple high five or […]

Thanks Failure

I have failed many many times. But looking back, those have been some of the best times for growth in my life. Society has placed on us that failure is bad and that we are weak if we fail. That is nonsense, and we as a society, need to change that thinking. If you look […]

The 3D Behind the 3D

What is so fascinating about 3D is how convincingly real it looks. What is even more fascinating is the behind the scenes process and how it’s made. It took me a while to get my head around it, and I am still baffled every day on how I make it bend to my will. So […]

Back to TV Commercials

BACK to the days of creating TV commercials. I think the last time I worked on a TV Spot we were all still getting over the effects of Y2K. Yeah, it’s been a while. And the last boss I had developing TV was David Morris. The CD at UPROAR. Fitting that the making of this […]
