>>>> NEW UPDATE <<<< - MORE MIRRORED sites AVAILABLE. Thank you Tagi and Rival. Thanks to the overwhelming response ... My entire Bandwidth for this month was exceeded overnight after posting. After upgrading my hosting services twice, I am unable to upgrade to additional bandwidth. Once the main site is exceeded, that is it for the month. Please try to use the mirrors.


I just recently updated my flat portfolio, put together a new reel and figured, what the heck, might as well put it online. I'm currently looking for new job oppurtunities and would love to hear your feedback.

Smile Nice style!

I really like your style of pretty mych everything you do especially your sketches. there is so much emotion and character coming out of them.
Totally reminds me of pixar. As for crits; I dont have any. It all seems pretty good.

Hey Joe,

I love your character design! It's fresh, unique and most of all appealing. The reel is awesome and I'm sure you'll have no trouble finding work! Wish I could sketch character concepts like you! Brilliant.

Front page stuff imo

Good work!

Like what you do!

Your characters are great! Sketches are fantastic!

Good reel to, but I miss some action and movement though! Your facial animation on unka was really good. Nice flow and feeling. Would really like to see something similar on the others

Wow, Great work! The reel has an excellent cartoony style. I would definitely like to see some more animation out of these characters.

Absolutely excellent modeling!

Fantastic work joe! Glad to see you finally posted some of your work. I think the strongest aspect of your work is the posing and expressions of the individual characters. You really give your characters alot of heart with your attention to their dynamics of movement and facial manipulations.

Really great work! The characters are well designed and modelled, look like they'd be a lot of fun to animate. Nice presentation of the reel also, pans and fades give it some life. I think it's front page work also, let's hope the mods agree! Only thing is the slow download but that's what happens when you post on cgtalk I guess, we're a bunch of bandwidth vampires!

Hey that stuff's a blast!

I really like the way that you capture the essence of the sketches in the models... you've got a really great balance between the CG and keeping it light!
