Justice League: The Flashpoint ParadoxOver the last few months I have been getting a lot of questions here on DA about what my next project would be and when it might be announced and released. Also, I am thrilled to say, that a lot of you awesome friends and fans have expressed the idea that following Young Justice, you would like to see more DC animation work from me. Well I am happy to reveal that the next project featuring my design work is the recently announced Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, directed by the super talented Jay Oliva, and it will hit the streets on July 30th. I did the designs for this film last spring and summer (after production wrapped on YJ: Invasion) and we just finished post production on the project last month. I gotta say that thanks to all the tremendous talent involved in making this thing, it's looking pretty epic. I personally pushed my style into a slightly more exaggerated look for much of this film and I hope those of you who dug the look of Young Justice will get a kick out ofJustice League: The Flashpoint Paradox2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Justice League War Premiere(s) UPDATEJust wanted to UPDATE this journal with another quick clip of some of our interviews from Tuesday night's premiere in NYC. This one was a bit strange because I didn't want to look right in the cell phone camera... it was so close to my face, lol! Enjoy the awkwardness.Justice League War Premiere(s) UPDATE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
YO! I just returned safely from our JL: War Premiere in beautiful and blizzardous NYC, and I just wanted to thank all the fans and comics and animation press that braved the insane weather to come see us! You guys and gals helped make it a really special night for us, and on behalf of the cast and crew I want you to know that it is deeply appreciated. We have another JL War screening coming up NEXT THURSDAY the 30th of January at the Paley center in LA. Not sure if tickets are still being sold, but I do believe it's still possible to get in for the resourceful and dedicated who either love what we do, or can't wait to tell us how much we suck to our faces!

More Interviews and JL War stuff...Alright this is the last update regarding JL War, I promise! For those of you interested in what goes into my process and how I approached design on my most recent projects, as well as others, I gave a few interviews over the last few days that might be insightful and or mildly entertaining.

Copying to learnI have been asked a few times whether it's ok to copy someone's style of drawing just to practice. I must admit that I've done my share of copying when I was in high school, but I don't think there's anything wrong with it as long as you move on from just imitation to developing your own creative style. The way I see it is that when you're copying, you are trying to understand how the artist is thinking when he/she draws, and through that you learn more about what it is you are drawing and that's when you can start creating your own style. I had mentioned before that back in school, I got to the point where I could pretty much mimic Naoko Takeuchi's style and draw my own original Sailormoon fan art in it, but over time I found that it was lacking because it really wasn't 'me' coming through in the work… which lead me to explore and look into what was to become my current 'style.' Of course it didn't just come to me overnight, and it was informed by more than just Sailormoon – ratheCopying to learn2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The power's back onMy apartment just regained power today after the hurricane. It's been a pretty interesting four days.The power's back on3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I actually ran through the storm twice on Monday. It was pretty intense and terrifying and you should seriously never do that ever.
While the power was out I reread a the first Lemony Snicket book, learned how to paint (which I'm still terrible at), cooked all of my food so it wouldn't go bad, slept in three different places that weren't my bed, played hide and seek with a bunch of Filipino children, ate an entire jar of peanut butter by itself, took two broken street signs, made friends with the power guys, and became extremely frustrated with my phone for accepting texts on limited cell service but not being able to send them.
Alot of Jersey City still doesn't have power, so I guess I lucked out. Still, it was pretty fun not being distracted by computers and all that for a while.

PET ONE OF THESE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wildlife Learning Center is a small, fantastic zoo in Sylmar, CA. They care for a menagerie of exotic animals and train them as ambassadors to help educate the public about wildlife preservation. Many of their animals are rescues from pet owners who kept them illegally, or rescues from the wild where various injuries would make their survival impossible. The fundraiser is being held to raise money for the animals' care.

When recently asked how his political candidate would explain certain positions taken during the
nomination process with contrary positions to be taken during the general election, the campaign chief
replied that stated political positions were “like an Etch A Sketch,”—meaning they could simply be
flipped over, erased and begun over from scratch.
Were it that adult life were as simple as a happy Etch A Sketch memory from childhood.
(The campaign chief took heavy heat for his flippant, if truthful, statement.) The incident made
me wonder how many of us had early experiences as “sketch artists” with that incredible red toy that
has become almost standard issue for so many children still to this day.

1 year in and some things I've learnedWell I have been drawing consistently for 1 year. I have improved a great deal but am still no where near my end goal. I am still working on it and understand it's a marathon and I am getting there 1 step at a time. In this last year I have learned a lot of things, some of which I am gonna pass on to anyone reading this that is just starting out.1 year in and some things I've learned1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It really doesn't matter which one you are using, a wooden #2 is really all you need. A mechanical can be nice starting if you really want that sharp point but after a while you realize a sharp point is not always what you want. A clutch is cool too but it's really just a wooden pencil without the wood. I mostly use my clutch, well just because I bought it but there are plenty of greats on youtube and else where that just use a good old wooden #2
You're just starting, do you really need a box full of 2h's-8b's? No, no you don't. Why would you? You haven't learned anything yet and a simple #2 HB is really all you need. Us

MLP Contest! Ending September 30th!What to Draw?MLP Contest! Ending September 30th!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Themes to choose from:
1. Disney / Pixar movies have been a major part of our lives. No matter how old we get, we still love Disney. So, I would like for you to incorporate a Disney / Pixar theme from your favorite Disney movie into this contest. It can be a recent movie, or an older one, just as long as it is Disney / Pixar themed.
2. I am a freak for wolves. They are an extraordinary creature. Another theme option is to incorporate wolves within your entry.
3. Basic MLP themes. Canon characters, background characters, anything MLP related. This is here to give you the option you don't have to incorporate wolves or Disney themes and just want to focus on Navy Canvas's talent or Navy Canvas with your OC.
I give you theme options for creativity freedom. You can choose one theme or you can relate all three together.
