Yesterday my mom and I walked into the Sony store on Madison Avenue. As part of a promotion for the new Sony Vaio Duo, they had an artist (Chris Carrasco) using the product to create portraits for free. After seeing the artist make a very cool rendering of a man in a blue turban, my mom and I each sat and had ours created.
I really like how he made mine look. My mom said that I look like April O’Neil which is just about the best compliment I can receive.

New Flash Animation →

Made in a few hours just today. I first took the existing low quality image I found online, and traced it out in Adobe Illustrator to get the vector quality for a professional feel.

Then after creating every element into movable piece which can be animated around the canvas. I decided on how I wanted everything to move together, keeping a steady rhythm & flow in mind while going for something modern and simple. 

Lastly I drew out a simple knife to add as a nice finishing touch and to keep the food / cooking theme which matches what the brand is about.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you visit my portfolio www.chriscarrasco.com if you have time or are interested in seeing more of my work.

Flash Sample I made →

By no means the most outstanding animation, but I’m very rusty. I do however, want to add some form of animation to my portfolio since many clients which approach me ask for it. I plan to make a few more and get better at doing these.

Hi All! Chris Carrasco Cartoonist here. Just wanted to say I uploaded some storyboard sample to my portfolio site: www.chriscarrasco.com/Storyboards.html 

These boards were done in a quick time-frame for a very nice gentleman named Donnell Riley, Owner at Suite 317 Entertainment, for a trailer to help promote and pitch a movie / t.v. series. The video can be found here http://youtu.be/El2ob0gmxiY and some parts from the storyboards are there in the film. I hope to do future storyboards with him again and for more films, commercials, and media.

So I have seen friends use ArtRage for ipad and ipod with some great results. So I decided to give it a try. It’s an interesting program since the end results are more painterly and actually can look hand made. I’m so used to Photoshop and having extreme precision over everything. But it’s a bit refreshing to loss some control and let some accidents and human trial and error make something beautiful which no other person can fully replicate.
