Walter Palmer, the huge douche of a man, murdered a protected, endangered animal for $50K. The internet then ‪#‎consumed‬ his flesh on a witch hunt of epic proportions with their digital torches and pitchforks. BUT when do we become the monsters that we are trying to kill? When will humans stop, think and ‪#‎consume‬ compassion instead of hate and murder? This is a real cray cray situation--one that should make us ALL stop and think about life and what it means to be alive, be human and be compassionate.
Jeb Bush-Consume THEY LIVE by HalHefnerART
Jeb Bush-Consume THEY LIVE
Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said Wednesday that in order to grow the economy “people need to work longer hours” -- a comment that the Bush campaign argues was a reference to underemployed part-time workers. Bush is out of touch with reality. With the middle class. With America.

I like to tell stories around the digital campfire and I use any media necessary to do so. As the founder and CCO of CATMONKEY, a digital storytelling studio, I have had some amazing opportunities to create my own stories. As CCO I wear multiple hats such as artist, writer, creative director and producer.

Currently at Catmonkey studios, we are producing a full spectrum narrative, called the Serpent Seed. The Serpent Seed is an evolving story that is told across multiple media platforms and is designed to exponentially grow with little to no repetition. Through Heavy Metal Magazine's first online comic book series, GATES, we launched the Serpent Seed in 2011 in graphic novel style format available for free online, here at dA and at this website

The Serpent Seed series has evolved into motion book format on Madefire, continuing the story of Gates and his ancestors. The Serpent Seed is the first Transmedia series created for the Madefire motion book platform and is stylistically unique in that it is designed to be more of a cinematic experience than a traditional comic book.

In addition to the Madefire series, the Serpent Seed will be living and breathing all over the internet on websites as well as extending to different social media platforms like deviantART, twitter, youtube and more.

In addition to the Serpent Seed, I have worked on franchises such as the The Simpsons, X-Men Days of Future Past, SyFy's Defiance, Darksiders 2, Ninja Turtles, Mr. Peabody and Sherman, the NFL and many more.

My personal website

I am also the Managing Director of Transmedia Los Angeles, one of the United States' largest multiplatform storytelling organizations. We hold monthly meetups and more in Los Angeles. In 2013 I will be launching an Experimental Storytelling Lab called Prototype, within Transmedia LA. Please check us out and us know if you'd like to participate.
I woke up to some awesome news this morning. My recent series of posters was featured on io9. CONSUME, inspired by John Carpenter's 80's cult film, THEY LIVE was on display today on the fun, news website.

You just need to remember to stay humble, and take everyday as achievement.
