I like the people I work with. Sometimes it’s appropriate to roll out my skills from my previous life. Meet Luke Cat 🤗. He loved it. Brought a little joy to a Friday for him after a hard week wrangling Webflow.
Heh heh, I was just digging through some old files to update the Evansfinch blog and I came across these animated shorts I created in 2008 for 4Mations.tv through Team Rubber and Aardman Digital. Thought I’d pop them up for your viewing pleasure :D Also found out that it was @JamFactory that designed the kittehs… the things you learn on the interpipes! Good times.
When I first started making the Dave Cat pictures I was working as a 2D animator at AProductions, Bristol… I managed to rope some of my co-workers into posing for photo’s so I could make them into their animal alter-egos! No-one has seen these for nearly 10 years, and it was great fun creating them at the time, so I’m going to post them up here for posterity…
Now it’s all good fun until someone loses an eye. I’m all too aware that the whole grafting people’s faces on to animals gig may not be to everyone’s taste. I assure you hand on heart, I do these in good humour, but if anyone sees any pictures or has any objections to what I post, please just drop me a message or add a comment and I’ll remove the image no questions asked, no hard feelings. I’m doing this for fun! xx :D
Nice. This is the last Dave Cat pic I’m going to post for the moment. Next its going to be images of the lovely people that I used to work with when I was creating these monstrosities all those years ago (how 10 years flies!)
Its great fun making these daft pics. When it comes to other people its bizarre what works and what dosn’t. People seem to have this curious knack of fitting the look of certain animals – perhaps its their personalities, maybe its their looks… never have been quite sure! Stay tuned!
