misc. videos

Sometimes I get bored and make videos to amuse myself. Sometimes those videos end up on social media. Sometimes, because of the videos that end up on social media, I get hired to make stuff for others, which is extremely gratifying since it ends up being a lot of fun.


Made with bad '80s clip art, old ads, and old comics.

After I posted the previous video, a friend reached out to me and had me come up with something he could use to promote his business' Cyber Monday sale.

This was intended to be one of those sharable 600x600 Facebook videos. It was quickly thrown together to commemorate the anniversary of a significant album. I'm currently working on an actual logo for episode 2.

Ok, so here's the thing: a few days ago I was all, like, “VIVA HATE is turning 30 this week? I have opinions...I should make a thing.” This was supposed to be done on Wednesday the 14th, the actual anniversary, but then I started working on a project for a client and put this aside for a bit. Btw, I couldn’t get the fancy podcast mic that I just got to work right and stopped caring about how the narration would sound because I’m not an audio engineer. So with all that out of the way, here are some hot takes on Morrissey’s debut solo album, Viva Hate.


These four animations are for a work-in-progress augmented reality enhancement of a zine that I recently finished.

A band that I'm an off-and-on member of decided to play a show, so I made a couple of video flyers to promote the gig on Facebook and Instagram.

These two are from my brief obsession with Filmation Studios' Archie and Sabrina the Teenage Witch cartoons from the '60s and '70s.
