I'm swimming in a sea of storyboards! I'm boarding out a music video, three comics and my graduate animation proposal! They are everywhere! Currently browsing my iTunes for the two perfect songs for the last project I mentioned. Decisions. Decisions..

I'm highly considering using this as one of the tunes. For those that don't know, this is possibly my favorite song of all time.


I've had this poster for about 14 years.

I'm sad to say I've received news that director Irvin Kershner has past away. Kershner expanded upon George Lucas's Star Wars universe by directing The Empire Strikes Back. The depth of influence this movie has had on my life is almost indescribable. I lived in a room littered in Star Wars action figures, banks, posters, folders, stickers, notebooks, pillows, blankets and just about everything else you can think of for almost the entirety of my childhood. If i wasn't drawing I was marauding the galaxy with my Boba Fett toy.

Kershner showed the world a side of the Star Wars universe that had been previously unseen. The film has a fun and immediately engaging tone yet is quite menacing at the same time. The pinacle of the dichotomy achieved in the film is the fact that, for the first time that I had seen at age seven, the bad guys win. I wish more writers/directors had the gall to allow such things to happen in their creations. Rest in peace Mr. Kershner!

WRX Animation!

This is an awesome animated ad for Subaru. I won't ruin the surprise with my blabbing but it's very cool! Reminds me of the old CTA blue line ads. I suggest hitting the jump and watching on youtube in 1080p!

R.I.P Bruce

Today is would have been Bruce Lee's 70th birthday. Bruce was a massive influence on me growing up and a man I respect very much. The respect goes much deeper than the fly movies however. Bruce, is to this day, an embodiment of dedication and discipline that I think we could all learn a lesson from. Tao of Jeet Kune Do was quite the read for me back in 7th grade haha! RIP Bruce, thanks for the motivation!

This song came on in the car today! I'd forgotten how much I love this song and video. Like many of Bjorks vids it is super inspirational!!

AE Magic

I'm always doing things when I'm not supposed to be. I just started making a cinematic intro for myself out of no where. I'm quite happy with it thus far though I will admit. Full 1080P too! Stuffs rendering on thing 1 and thing 2 so i might just finish this while I have the time.

A Taste of What's to Come.

Finalizing the piece for the show currently. Then the next order of business is continuing work on the visuals for the show with Anti, Dolor and Lorn. But the project after that is going to be really special. Working on a music video with Anti and Dolor. I think its gonna be pretty solid. I'm not too focused on it right now but like any good DuPree I'm planning two steps ahead. Check it out.

Hello world! I'm currently lined up to be in a show in STL in a few weeks.Sadly, I have had the hardest time figuring out what I want to present. I've sloshed around about 3 different ideas around in my head for the last two weeks and just recently settled on one.

The title of the piece is called Chromacrobe. It's a short non-narrative 3D animation showing the mundane lives of Chromacrobes (haha) What are Chromacrobs you ask? Well, I am a lover of science and am often influenced by all of its mysteries and there is one mystery in particular that I am quite fascinated with. LIGHT!

I am playing around with the idea of light as microbial lifeform. What would it look like? what would it do? Does light have to eat? Well for that i suppose you'll just have to wait and see. It's rendering on my PC right now and if my calculations are right, and they seldom are, it will be done sometime Friday night! Well the renders will be done at least. And thats just the first shot! If you are in STL you should definitely check out the show, which I will be posting up info for soon as soon as I have the official flyer! I'll post up a sneak peak straight from the renderbatch just so you guys can get a taste.

I've Been a Bad Blogger Lately..

I have to apologize for being digitally MIA over the last month. I've relocated to Michigan and am currently working on pieces for two shows I have coming up in St. Louis. I'll have some new pics soon. I think this was the last thing I drew.. I'm not even sure anymore.
