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.

Getting My Feet Wet

Okay, I've begun playing around with Illustrator, and . . . I LOVE IT! Oh Vectors, how you amaze and perplex me. This portrait is part of a small series of a few of my friends back home.

Issues I'm still working on:
Figuring out the Layering System
Brush & Pen Tools
Exporting an image to a specific size and file type

Roger Evans, So Totally The Man

I know he's already taken Cartoon Brew by storm, but I just HAD to share the latest about his epic "Quest".

Being a fan of the Hanna Barbara animated series, "Johnny Quest", Roger Evans has set out to reproduce the show's popular intro sequence in Stop-Motion. His puppets are incredible and he offers valuable post-production tips.

Check out his website (do it, DO IT NOW!)
