My Hotel Transylvania Poster

I made this for a crew print and a t-shirt design for the cloth and hair crew on Hotel Transylvania.

Hotel Transylvania fifty percent complete illustration

We are wrapping up the last remaining cloth and hair tasks for Hotel Transylvania. A few months back when we hit our 50 percent complete mark, I made buttons for the cloth and hair crew with this illustration on the buttons.

The Adventures of Spacecat : Animated Short (2005)

This is an animated short that helped create while at Clemson University. I was so lucky to be able to work with a group of talented people to bring Spacecat to life in the form of animation.

New Maya Book out

The new Mastering Maya 8.5 book is out. I got a chance to write about 10 pages of a nCloth tutorial for the book. Nothing much but it got me a “with Ed Siomacco” writing credit on the cover.

Mastering Maya 7

So, I might be a little biased but I’m excited about the new Mastering Maya 7 book that just came out. Three of the writers are good friends. John Kundert-Gibbs was my professor at Clemson University. Mick Larkins was a classmate at Clemson, and Mark de Sousa was my supervisor on Open Season at Sony Imageworks.

It’s also exciting because they used one of my rigged characters for the cloth and hair chapters, and they used a quote I wrote for them on the front page of the book. So, If you are in Barnes and Noble look for it. If you want to buy it, it’s a good price on Amazon.
