Working on this

So here's the first image from a Graduation Film I'm helping out on.

Its called Damned by Richard Phelan at the NFTS and its going to be going round festivals next year.

I've been helping out on the Backgounds for these, and it nice because the influences are so great and hopefully you can see what they are.

I saw that Gemma Correll has expanded her what I wore today posts into a blog of it own, where others can submit their state of fashion.
Here's me. Working from home. Today. I have been working on other things. Not just this.

Amazingly made in just two and a half weeks.

Directed by David Wilson at Colonel Blimp
Illustrations by Keaton Henson

Update; Davids added a Making of which is quite nice.

One Day animation

I have a few days of relaxing so..

Based on another idea I did in my uni days. Its a little exercise to do an animation in a day. Silly thing. Maybe I'll add sound one day.

I'm sure Bill Plympton must have done this already.

Here's the earlier one;

This was the second bit of animation I ever did I think! sheesh.

Render doodles 003

ok it's a bit more than a render doodle and its now a render/bluescreen thing.
My computer completely went wrong with an update and I paniced a little. well looks like it's temporarily sorted. so..
It's a banner for Fernando's Blog Cinenext. He's had the idea of getting different illustrators to do the banner every so often which is quite cool.

The blog is about film review disscussion and although written in spanish has a handy translate widget built in.

I'm hoping I can post a finished project this week. Fingers crossed.

Render doodles 002

So now Ram Previews are taking forever, and Renders even longer.
AfterEffects is collapsing under the layers, effects and frames.
Its was working fine a couple of days ago, but it just isn't happy now.
So as I wait to see if the correction has worked and the problem is solved I've been doodling. Here's one. Maybe more as it goes on I'll post more.
But I could use the time to do my andacoffee post.

Final touches,

Still working hard to finish my current project. Its all the little final things that take time though isn't it. Hope to post about it here soon. In the mean time a doodle as I wait for the massive Afx projects to ram preview.
And yes, drawing myself again, I know.

Some work

Been a while since I posted but sooooooper busy right now, just about managing to find time to squeeze in andacoffee posts, but here's a video that I animated on for Slinky Pics and the lovely Rebecca Manley. It was screened at a concert for the world cup. Had a great time working with everyone there and hope to again soon.

Procrastination Issues 33. Blue Mews

I did this recently for an art exchange, which by the way I was rubbish at. Couldn't even do it in the week!

Anyway. Hope the person who gets it likes it. I just enjoyed doing it as I don't get work out side of the computer that often.

I even took a close up pic because I feel artistic.

Another 60th

So my Dad was 60 recently and we had to do him a book for his birthday too. We tried something a bit different by making a concertina book. So that we had two sides, one for this story and another for a walk we were going on with him.

Some of the spreads worked so that you couldn't see both halves until you folded it out.

Procrastination Issues 31. Pugs

I'm busy busy at the moment but that means I am also trying to find time to do a couple of other things too, as you do.

So here are some Pugs in the city, I had been looking on Gemma Corrells flickr and been inspired. I'm sure she will not apporve of my versions of her favorite dogs.

This also lead onto this,

Mr Norman Pickles being Gemma's Pug and Stanley Pickle being Vicky's main character. So Norman Stanley Pickles a merging of two great things.

Coloured Sketch

I was re-watching The Venture Brothers and drew this. Quite liked it. So thought it could balance out the crappy drawing I did earlier.

Very quick

To get it off my chest. I am an old man now, why do these people go to gigs and talk so loud you can't hear the fantastic band? Sigh.

You can tell they we're art school too. They stood facing away from the band rolling cigarettes. Rolling cigarettes is the only way.

Billy Childish still rocks and its was a fantastic gig.

Happy New Year, March? What happened to the other 3 months?

ok bad joke to begin.

Get it? Not sure if its get-able. Based on a gag from Sorry I haven't a Clue a while back.

So I am trying to sort out a web site at the moment and hopefully will be putting random updates on here as well.
