gravity falls

here are some long overdue character designs i did for the disney channel show GRAVITY FALLS

big thanks to RAD SECHRIST for bringing the gig to my attention, as well as character lead/show director JOE PITT for being an awesome person by taking a chance on me. it was a super fun experience, i couldn't have been more excited to be a part of the show

i contributed design for about 5-6 episodes. the characters cycle through every now and then tho, so every now and then one of them may randomly walk through an episode they weren't intended for

and heres a screencap of bunch of them from the episode 'boss mabel'
