Gnome Coat Rack

My girlfriend Meg's birthday is December 1st, and I burnt, stained and painted a coat rack for her. She likes gnomes a lot. And she's a little slow, so I made sure to have the gnome showing her how to put on a coat.

Haha! Just kidding, dear.

I meant to just burn the linework, stain it selectively, and then seal it without painting it. So I did the first two steps, uncapped the spray sealer, shook it, sprayed it, and then realized that green spraypaint was shooting out of the cap. NOOOO! But I made the best of it. I laid down some masking tape, and did both ends, and then painted the hats red. I like how it came out. Happy accident. And luckily, Meg liked it too, even though she's quite capable of putting on her jacket.

Good Draw-er

My dental hygienist, when she found out what I went to school for, told me that I must be a really good draw-er.

New Montage Intro

I've been teaching myself After Effects, and I decided to redo the intro for my montage as a way to make it all sink in. My last intro was done in After Effects too, but wasn't very good, since I just knew the barebones of the program. Not that this is anything advanced.

It's my hope that you come away with the impression that I am a man who's unafraid of having his name associated with flowers and curly-cues.
