Doug's Intro

Animator/Illustrator/Student Director

A drawing is an idea. As an animator, I turn ideas into stories.
I am currently a junior at the Kansas City Art Institute. It's been a blessing and privilege to be a student there after earning my AFA at the Southwestern Illinois College in Belleville, IL. I keep this as a journal of my latest projects and explorations in animation.

Motion Capture

I've become rather fascinated with the movement of squirrels. There's quite an abundance of them on campus. So, each morning I try to observe them before going to my classes. They have this odd ability to elongate their body which gives them a unique squash and stretch effect.


  1. Lol, increment squirrel studies. Are these burst shots?

  2. Yes, they are. It took a while since squirrels don't often run at people.
