This is a piece I did quite a few years ago but just stumbled across it in my portfolio and realized I really liked it and should make it available as a print. This was inspired by one of my favorite beaches, Trunk Bay, located in the Virgin Islands. In the mid-90's I was a dancer for Carnival Cruise Lines and got to go to all sorts of tropical locations. Sitting here in Michigan, I wish I was there now! I had such a great time as a cruise ship dancer. I met great people and had a great time. I worked cruise ships from the age of 19 to 23. I've included one of my cast photos from the Carnival ship, the MS Celebration, which Carnival no longer owns. The cast photo was taken in 1995. I'm the guy on the far left.

I was asked by some folks on Newgrounds.com to collaborate on a video game piece that displayed fan art of your favorite video game character. I said yes so I did this illustration of Spyro the Dragon, my favorite video game back in the 90s. This character is fan art. Fan art is my interpretation of an existing character. The original character is copyright Sony, Playstation and Universal. I've included the inked outline and the original game cover.

Often folks ask me to draw them. This fellow emailed me with that request. It's difficult when you don't know the person. He sent me a few photos but he looked like a different person in each picture. He was happy so I guess I captured his best features.

I was commissioned by eGameBids to design and animate the interface of their new Flash chess game as well as illustrate the cover. Here are some still shots of the cover and the interior interface. To see the animation in action, please visit http://www.artbyandybauer.com/chess.html. The game isn't playable on my site. You'd have to visit eGameBid to actually play.

SafeTouch Security hired me to do three Flash animated commercials. It started with a script provided to me and the audio file. I created the character and background designs, then provided storyboards, then animtics. The animatic follows the storyboard and gives a better idea of how the scene will look and feel with motion and timing. At its simplest, an animatic is a series of still images edited together and displayed in sequence. More commonly, a rough dialogue and/or rough sound track is added to the sequence of still images taken from the storyboard to test whether the sound and images are working effectively together. Finally, I inked and colored the elements and animated them in Flash. They were exported in Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 7.0.
