Mic Article About the End of the World!

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Sophie Kleeman at Mic about the good ole' End of the World, or End of Ze World as some call it.

It's always such a treat to hear how far this video has gone. It's genuinely astounding. Two years ago a took a trip to Israel and met someone who was a fan of the video. So cool. I'm usually pretty quiet about this video and can generally play it cool when I meet a stranger who has seen the video, but it really is a privilege to be able to help people suffer less by way of laughter.

Thanks to everyone who ever watched the video, even if you didn't like it and left unkind Youtube comments. :)

Check out the article here! Looks like it got picked up by Gizmodo as well! Pretty neat!


The Unfinished Fable of the Sparrows

Nick Bostrom prefaced his 2014 book SuperIntelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies with a chilling parable illustrating how foolhardy humanity's pursuit of strong, recursively self-improving general AI is without FIRST considering how to control & motivate it.

I'm really happy with how this one turned out. Hopefully it helps with the Control Problem!

Happy Anniversary!

It's our third year as married people, and this year I did a rendition of our little family and gave my wife and 18x24 print. Check it out!

Sneak Peak

I just finished production on an animated short I'm REALLY pumped about. Without giving TOO much away (because it's top secret!) it's an animated preface of a book, and it's about birds. Or possibly artificial intelligence... 

Here's a few boards, character sketches, and art style! Keep an eye out for more info this month!

Welcome

I've been feeling like I need a place to share works-in-progress, behind-the-scenes, side projects, design-related inspiration, and possibly the occasional spiritual insight or family adventure time.

So to start off, here's a quick glance at an art style frame for a short animation about a private detective I've got on the horizon. Currently boarding, going into production soon!
