As the year comes to a close, I'm proud to announce that I have completed a (non-actor) goal of mine! Earlier in the year, I wrote and illustrated a children's book, which is now available on Amazon.com.
Slipping Beauty is a clumsy penguin who helps teach an aggressive orangutan the importance of resiliance.
I finally got around to shooting a couple of videos of some tricks I can pull out at your next party. By the way, you should totally invite me to your next party.
Don't worry, though: I found some more projects to work on in September. I look forward to sharing the next few things with all of my readers before the year is up. Now, let's make some magic!
Exciting news: I'll be spending the next couple of weeks mentoring the next generation of artists! USPA and Relativity Studios have teamed up to provide students with an opportunity to work on their projects with industry professionals on a real studio lot. Where was this when I was their age? Anyway, I look forward to taking pictures and finding new stories!
I finally got around to doing this cover of "Boil Them Cabbage Down," featuring guitar, ukulele, balalaika, and violin. Hopefully, I can get more song covers out in the future!
After two years of saying, "I'm going to record a cover of this for Youtube," I've finally recorded a cover of this for Youtube! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I finally finished working on this song, just in time for the holidays!
This weekend I finished a run of "Trolls Stole the North Pole," where I reprised my role as Stripey the Elf. I didn't do a great job advertising the show this time around because it was for a charity event, and they weren't selling tickets to the general public. I realize some of you are disappointed that you couldn't see me portray an elf saving Christmas. Fortunately, thanks to Mike Hammari, I'm able to show off this clip where I play an elf who ruins Christmas.
Earlier this month, Art Shulman asked me to reprise my role as Stripey the Elf in Trolls Stole the North Pole. I'm glad to help out where I can, and I'm trying not to be the guy who constantly says, "Last time, we did things this way!"
In addition, Mike Hammari had me reprise my elf role for his advent calendar: A Christmas Barrel. It was a fun shoot, and I got to be in a music video about socks. My feet will finally be famous.
I finally got around to starting an Instagram account! I already feel like I'm Instagram famous because I got 40 new followers before posting my second picture! As tempting as it is to refuse following anyone back, I actually do know most of these people. I think I'll be "famous" a little longer, and then I'll start following them back.
