My Bio
Hello Friend and friends,

I am Tony Papesh. I am an animator, illustrator, and designer who lives and works in San Francisco, California. I've been drawing for quite some time now and I even get paid to do it now! Over the years, I have worked on commercials, ads, and album covers that have been seen around the world. I've worked with 2d animation, 3d animation, stop motion, flash animations, and motion graphics... basically, give me something to animate, and I will animated it. If you would like to know more about me and my weird-ways, feel free to contact me. I am more than happy to answer questions about work, commissions, or to say "hi".

With love,

Current Residence: San Francisco, CA

I wasn't expecting this! THANKS!
Great Style with these mixed media paints ...
Was wondering how you found the gouache reacting to the untreated wood? ( flooring underlay? ) Birch?
never tried to use Gouache on open grain before... figured it would just soak it up so bad you'd  have apply a lot of coats to get any real affect.
Awesome Stuff!

Thanks! Thank you! Thank you!

The watercolor look is MOSTLY from gouache + water. If you try it for yourself, make sure you use it on some paper (or wood) that will absorb the water and the color and be sure to layer it! Whenever working with water based paint, they tend to dry a bit lighter than when they are wet so just go over it a few times after they dry.

As for working with it on wood, it is great! It can absorb a lot of water, never warps, and can take a beating!

Good luck!
Thanks Very much will keep this all in mind when I try it
