I’ve been painting. Which is good. I’m also finally starting Life Drawing again tomorrow, which is the main reason I’ve been wanting to start a Blog for so long so I can get my stuff online and seen. *Heart* Life Drawing. More about the that to follow, today we have paint.
I’ve got one of those crazy burst blood vessels in my left eye at the moment which is frankly a bit embarrassing. Its called a subconjunctival haemorrhage but looks more like a rage infected monkey eye from 28weeks later. This is how I feel about it, in paint. Will photo in good light when its properly dry. Painted on white box canvas roughly 8″x 8″
Everyone has a labour of love in their life – this was mine! 5 years in the making (!) and weighing in at a girthy 3 whole minutes. Created in my spare time to keep me sane from animating teddy bears waving day-in-day-out in my day job! This really is what years of working in the kids animation industry does to someone. Officially deemed ‘too strong for Aardman‘ – not sure what to make of that little claim to fame… enjoy (I did!)
It was fully animated from start to finish in Traditional 2D, then scanned and traced in Adobe Flash. It is what it is, but I can’t tell you how much this stupid little film means to me. The SFX and music was a joint effort from Darren Lambourne (who came up with the gruesome baby noises and visceral crunches) and Robin Stout who dragged it up from the gutter!
Meet ‘Dennis’ – he’s trying to catch Hepatitis C! I designed, storyboarded and animated this spot for Rubberductions in 2007 using Adobe Flash. I really loved this job, it was the first project that I managed to get off the back of my independant film ‘Mouks’. Everyone from the agency right the way through to the Hep C sufferers who saw the film loved it! Big piles of win all round :D
