The Herbert & Bert Show

I got an idea for a new animated series. It's tentatively called "The Herbert & Bert Show" based on a couple of fish characters I invented some time ago. The idea is that each episode would only be one minute which should help them to be face paced, fun and easy to produce. All the characters would be fish or some sort of sea creature and the settings would be, naturally, underwater. The subject matter would be lessons taken from the Bible or other morally uplifting material.

Anyways, that's the basic idea. I'm still working on the concept and even with the two fish above I'm trying to figure out which one is Herbert and which one is Bert :-)

Zebtoonz Productions 2010 reel



I just finished posting a compilation of animation work I've done over the past couple of years. It was pretty easy to do, just went around picking and choosing some of my favorite scenes, dropped them into Sony Vegas, added some goofy music and that was it! Hope you like it!

New Book - A Fábrica de Ovos da Felicidade

Last year I did the illustrations for a book in Portuguese written by a friend of mine, Mauro Morisson. It came out in print this Easter and he sent me a copy. It came out very well, IMO, and I'm currently working on a second book for Mauro. You can read more about Mauro and his work in Brazil by clicking here.

100 YouTube subscribers!

Yay! Whoopie! I just hit the 100 mark on my YT channel. Interestingly enough, the 100th person just so happened to be one of my daughters, Gela. This was by no means a coerced action but purely voluntary and coincidental, really. Anyways, I know it's not such a big deal but I thought I'd landmark it here in my blog just for the record.

New animation project - Back to Life

Can you believe it? I'm already working on another new animation idea. I'm a little over halfway through with the Construction Crew animation when I got inspired to work on this new idea. My artist friend, Didier who did the artwork above, is working on some Bible stories. The artwork is all done and the text is written. After seeing it I got the idea of bringing it to life in a very simple animated style. I also will be having some of my other friends helping with this project doing the audio narration and music. So please keep this project in your prayers.
