Progress West Healthcare spot- “Pediatric Doctors”

January 16, 2013  |  Animation, Joe's Work  |  No Comments

This is one of a three-part series I directed for the blr/further ad agency in Birmingham. The 15 second spots are for Progress West Healthcare. This one shows the doctor’s connection to their St. Louis Children’s Hospital. I had lots of help on this from animators Chris McMurray and Joanna Davidovich, illustrators Trevor Irvin and Mike Schultze , and After/Effects wizard Rob Fearon.

University of Alabama at Birmingham birthday animation

January 9, 2013  |  Animation, Joe's Work  |  1 Comment

This is an animated birthday card I did for the University of Alabama at Birmingham through the agency “blr/further”, also in Birmingham. I have added all the sound effects and music on this version, just some stuff from iMovie that I put together for kicks. Much thanks to Rob Fearon for his excellent After/Effects work!

Ugly Americans on Comedy Central tonight!

July 7, 2011  |  Animation, Events, Illustrations, Joe's Work  |  1 Comment

Finally! I worked on character designs for the second season of Ugly Americans from December 2010 to May 2011. I was fortunate enough to get to work with my old buddies Sam Leyja and Matt Jenkins as well as the rest of the fine crew at Turner Studios, as we cranked out dozens of characters for every other episode.

Tonight’s show (10:30pm, Comedy Central) is the first one we worked on, Episode #202 “Callie and Her Sister” (that’s one of the show’s main characters above, Callie). After the show airs tonight I will be able post some of the designs I worked on, including some “dress-ups” (and “dress downs”!) of the main characters. Look for more posts right here (it’s about time) over the coming weeks, as I reveal some other projects I’ve been up to!

One year later, I’m full-time again…

May 16, 2010  |  Events  |  1 Comment

Yep, it was just about a year ago I was included in the lay-offs at Turner Studios, where I had worked in the animation department as Senior Animation Director. I had been there for about eight-and-a-half years, and suddenly found myself back in the freelance world. Fortunately, I was able to find work and it didn’t seem as bleak as I’d heard, until I got stiffed for about $4,000 on a freelance job. I was finally able to collect some of it (still trying to get the rest) but the ordeal reminded me of the downside of self-employment. I did have some positive experiences working with new clients and some contacts from the past that I enjoyed collaborating with again. It was also great working from home in my studio across the hall from my girlfriend Rebecca’s office. We enjoyed being able to take breaks in the back yard with the chickens and hiking over to the Village for tacos. It was a good time for me to work on a variety of jobs, and pursue some different creative outlets. Finally, I visited the folks at “Floyd County Productions”, creators of the “Archer” series on FX. I had met them originally at an ASIFA “Blowin’ Smoke” event, where I first saw their show “Frisky Dingo” (Under their old moniker: “70/30 Productions”). I loved the look of the show, and it was hilarious. At the time I remember thinking I would like to work with them at some point. Well, the opportunity arose when they earned a second season for Archer. They hired me on to help storyboard the new episodes, and after a month we both agreed it was a good fit. They need the help with a very tight schedule and thirteen new shows to produce. I am happy to be drawing again every day, though I must admit I had become rusty doing this particular type of drawing. I’m working hard to recover my chops, and inspired every day by the extremely talented crew around me. It’s good to be a part of a fun loving, hard working team; and there seems to be a genuine affection among everyone involved in the production. I look forward to improving my skills every day. Oh- I’m also a reference model for the the main character! Actually, just the body (killer suit). So I get to play dress-up from time to time. Look for my action poses when the new season starts- I’ll keep you posted… http://www.fxnetworks.com/shows/originals/archer/

Brushes for iPhone

February 4, 2010  |  Animation, Illustrations, Joe's Work  |  3 Comments

My first attempt at using “Brushes”, an iPhone painting application. This is “Freckles”, our chicken who is ailing from an eye infection. It’s a little tricky figuring out the program on such a small canvas, but it works pretty well!

Toon Lesson

Animation Director: Joe Peery *Writer/Voice: Craig Adams *Studio: Primal Screen *Client: CNLA

This was an especially fun piece I directed for Cartoon Network Latin America when I was still at Primal Screen. The writer is Craig Adams, a great guy and fun to work with (that’s him on the voice over). I got to create original characters and come up with lots of gags for the spot.
