A new Christmas Classic!

I was very fortunate to be asked to design the logo for How Murray Saved Christmas – a show that promises to be a fantastic animated Christmas classic.

Nice to see the logo animated in this behind the scenes look at the show from TV Guide!

How Murray Saved Christmas

It’s the season, folks!

The season to stuff ourselves, devolve into maniacs in the mall parking lot, and get pelted with obnoxious shopping ads (no, I’m not giving my wife a Lexus with a bow on it on Xmas morning).

But it’s also the season to spend a little extra time with loved ones, and observe some family traditions. There’s a new Christmas special in NBC this year, and it looks like a lot of fun – and, I was lucky enough to help by designing the show’s logo. It is called How Murray Saved Christmas , and it was animated by Rough Draft Studios, and directed by the incredibly talented Peter Avanzino.

Give it a look on December 5th at 8/7c on NBC – it may very well become a new family tradition. And I promise it will be better than trying to park at the mall.

Considering buying a new bike.

I’ve had my Altima for a few years now, and while it’s been a great car, it feels a little dated now. Call it a mid-life crisis if you’d like, but I’m looking for something more exciting, something that’ll turn heads, and perhaps allow me to blast to smithereens some of the morons on the 405 freeway.

This is the bike I’m looking for, and it just might be my gift to myself this holiday season.

Bananas!

To quote a friend, “this is bananas!” And he’s right. This is the kind of work that makes music videos worth watching, and should inspire others to step up and push the creative envelope. I’m not a video artist, but after watching this even I felt I have to try harder. This definitely falls under “things I like.” Enjoy! (And make sure to watch the behind the scenes.)
