Here is some deliberately 80s-looking animation I was lucky enough to work on for an upcoming episode of Community (character designs by the lovely and incredibly skilled Miss Julia Vickerman)!  I animated a good chunk of this PSA, as well as the opening credits for this episode.  Tune in next Thursday to see the whole thing!

My first group art show, co-curated with Nico Colaleo and Danielle Kramer!  I designed the poster, too!  Very excited about this!

I am heartbroken today.  Philip Seymour Hoffman was, and is, my favorite actor.  I can’t find the right words to say, so I will turn to PSH instead, as his character Caden Cotard, from a film that changed me profoundly:

I know how to do the play now. It will all take place over the course of one day. And that day will be the day before you died. That day was the happiest day of my life. Then I’ll be able to live it forever. See you soon.

Hey, guys!  Here’s a new promo for COSMOS: A Space-Time Odyssey, which now has a premier date!  Set your TV calendars to March 9!

I’ve poured many, many stressful/sleepless/anxious nights into this show but I can honestly say I’ve never worked on any project as important and rewarding as this one.  Cosmos means the world to me and I know it will to you, too.  Please watch!  Especially parents!  Inspire your kids to pursue science!

My piece “Nothing is Impossible” for this Nikola Tesla: Currents in Time art show opening in Seattle this weekend.  Inspired by David Bowie’s portrayal of Tesla in The Prestige.
