Look Ma! I'm on TV!!

I got to design myself to be one of the incidentals in Ben 10: Ultimate Alien. Here's a screengrab of me sitting behind Ben, Kevin, and Gwen at a tennis match in the episode "Duped".

Here is the model sheet of the design I did that was colored by our color stylist Chris Hooten. They changed my hoodie color to red from black so that the character wouldn't turn into an amorphous blob.

This was the original design I did of myself. I tried adding the flame logo to my clothes because I'm a HUGE Calgary Flames fan and I'm always wearing their merchandise. Glen wanted me to get rid of the logo to make sure no one sued the studio. :(

Enjoy!! Be sure to look for me in future episodes. I'm usually mixed into a large crowd but my red hoodie makes me stand out quite a bit :)

My Venture Into Sculpting

I've been wanting to try something new for awhile and a friend at work inspired me to try my hand at sculpting. He used to sculpt toys and maquettes and was gracious enough to lend me some tools so that I could show the world that I should probably stick to pencil and paper. I really hope I can put time aside every day to work on this. I found it to be quite cathartic and enjoyable. Two points to anyone (besides my brothers) who can correctly guess what I have begun to sculpt. Hint: #104.
