In 2010, I discussed doing VFX for a client’s feature-length film. I gave him an estimate, time frame, and a PO Box to mail a hard drive of raw footage to. He promised to send the footage within the week.
Three years later, I received a bubble wrap envelope from the client. The envelope contained a single CD, with no case or paper envelope protecting it.
The only file on the CD was a single JPG image. It was a picture of a hand-written note taken on a webcam.
The client, thinking the webcam would flip the image, wrote the entire note backwards; every letter, every word, every sentence, all of it was written from right to left.
The note (to the best of my reading ability) said:
Client:Here is the footage, like we discussed. Call me before you start.
This one will be hard to top.
Visual Communications 4 project:
Character designs and Key frames presenting a redesign for Super Mario Bros. in which Princess Peach, aided by a mysterious Toadstool Merchant, sets off on an adventure to rescue Mario from the evil Bowser!
This project was a lot of fun for me! I wanted to really push myself with the shapes and proportions of characters and try a different style. Usually my work tends to be on the cutesy and conservative side so this time I wanted to make something a bit edgy and tongue-and-cheek. It was fun re-imaging a series that I’ve grown up with and finally giving Peach the spotlight. (We won’t mention the DS game they made for her….)
Thanks for playing!

These are so great.
It’s pretty amazing what go.com, which you’d think would be a key web domain — especially since it’s owned by Disney — resolves to. A completely broken, janky website that looks like it’s straight out of the 1990s.
Complete with dozens of little blue links, awful banner ads, broken images, and auto-playing tiny video ads.
Wow. I can remember when they were trying to make that domain the center of their entire online presence.
