While I also work a normal day job, on the side I'm an artist who loves to get my hands into nifty programs like Esoteric Software's Spine! With this tool I can generate interactive HTML5 canvas elements. Because of CORS limitations, I'm basically required to host my experiments myself if I want to share them with anyone. That's why I'm here!
Animating is an iterative process. Spine provides numerous tools to help me create refined 2D animations. It allows me to bend and deform images with mesh skinning/weights, adjust timing with a dopesheet, visualize motion with ghosting, pose characters with inverse kinematics, create pseudo 3D effects, and much more!
Great 2D animation requires not only powerful software, but a streamlined workflow. Spine, unlike other programs such as Flash, is dedicated to 2D skeletal animation, providing me an efficient workflow both for creating amazing animation and for integrating it into my projects.
I hope you enjoy anything you find here!

Feel free to email me to provide some feedback on my art, give me suggestions for new art and themes, or to just say hello!
