Bicycles, Rolling Stops, and the Idaho Stop from Spencer Boomhower on Vimeo. I created this video – everything from the writing to the narration to the art to the editing – to support the Bicycle Transportation Alliance‘s effort to pass a law that would allow people on bikes to treat stop signs like yield signs: carefully, [...]
This is a sample of some rigging and animation I did for a small indie project called Greysoul. The rig is a standard biped skeleton with some additional bones attached for things like cloaks and wings. And I made use of IK for the sword and staff, and for planting the feet solidly on the [...]

Concept art, characters, and level design for Paintball Net, a Torque Engine game by David Michael, author of the Indie Game Development Survival Guide. We took as inspiration for the art style the toon rendering techniques seen in games like XIII and Jet Grind Radio.
