2D Animation

I’m building my first 2D animation team to bring my characters and stories to life.  The music is done and ready to go.  Now it’s time to put animation to it and introduce you too some NEW characters.

Currently, I’m starting off with shorts, about three minutes long each then working my way up to eventually creating feature films.  Part of the process here is keeping tradition alive.  Some of the shorts, two minutes and under will be created by cel animation (as much as possible).  However, because I don’t have hundreds of people working with me yet, most shorts will be created digitally with what I call, “digital cel animation”, bringing both processes together for one fun awesome look!

Coloring With Jeff

Coloring with Jeff is a weekly episode series where you can actually see a black and white picture come to life just by coloring it using markers!  Yes, MARKERS!  Each week I color a black and white piece from start to finish right before your eyes.  Showing you some tips and tricks of the trade.  This is a live broadcast, so if you have questions, I’ll answer them in “real time”.

Season 2 of Coloring with Jeff is coming January 2022!  Don’t miss out on an episode.  Join our Facebook page.
