Partnered up with the fine folks at OddFort has been great. We've worked with some known brands like Sprig to help build new ideas, plus a few of our own. BADVINE- The now defunct wine brand had the idea to bring the drinking culture of tequila and college to the vineyard... The world, alas, was not ready for the extreme brands such as Trunk and Disorderly or Party Fowl. Maybe one day. WONDERBUND- Ever find yourself at a wedding, wishing that you could flip your lame black cummerbund over only to expose a WWF styled CHAMP belt?! I knew you did. You can get one now.
We worked with Sprig to design a few car topper's to help build brand awareness while their drivers delivered delicious foods. The garden box worked best.

Burt Destruction, the brainchild of myself and Michael Hurley, is a story about a kid who has the inexplicable ability to transform into a testosterone fueled 1980's–style action hero (complete with mullet, handlebar and eyepatch).
He lives in a secret lair that's a cross between a Chuck–E–Cheese and Indiana Jones' private office with his best friend Bigfoot, an overly mothering robot, and a depressed dodo bird. In this mobile game/cartoon series Burt does battle with his arch nemesis The Yeti, and his forces of EVIL. These include a pair of sadistic leprechauns, a giant german earthworm, a bloodthirsty chupacabra and a malfunctioning mastadon cyborg.
You know, that old cliche.

We wrote a set of cutscenes between certain levels in the game. Making the cartoons was by far my favorite part. Someone pulled them all together online for easy non-gameplay viewing.
VIDEO GAME TRAILER
Here's the official trailer for the game.
Level One game map. It's a dark, dangerous amusement park run by two crooked leprechaun carnies.
The overall story arch is that the Yeti is upset that he's a freak compared to modern day humans. He develops a Rogaine Ray gun, which for copyright purposes we call the "Hair Ray" so that he can turn the world hairy just like him. I imagined that if this was a real thing Shepherd Fairey would be on the ground floor. He seems down for the cause.
CHARACTER + NARRATIVE DEVELOPMENT
Just like Burt Destruction, I've partnered up with some weirdos and come up with characters and stories for all types of animated adventures. Here are a few highlights.
BRAIN BUCKET- 3 super weird kids at a super weird summer camp.
Tina Tinker works hard to make all her dad's toys way more useful...and destructive.
Lazer Suzan- stoner with superpowers.
BROBOTS- a bunch of really shitty transforming robots living in a junkyard not helping humanity at all.
The Soft Temple- a really great story that has yet to be finished.
TO-GO-NUTS- Donut shop on wheels that has tons of tiny, strange donut-men working behind the counter with Larry, the happiest kid ever, and Larry, the fastest sloth on earth.
MAXPACK- If having fun was an eating contest Max and Thunder would have PHD's in rad.
Poops McGee really wants to destroy Deputy Ferret.
This Mariachi is dead, but that doesn't mean he doesn't need love.
