I'm an Australian animator from Melbourne living and working in Halifax, Canada.

Currently Animation Supervisor for Copernicus Studio Inc., I amuse myself by terrifying the locals with ukulele fuelled spontaneous sing-alongs and using snow as shaving equipment.

Request 3:Zombie Jesus

Request number three for Allira Ebony: Zombie Jesus!

I've found I need to look into something that's between a fineliner and a sharpie. Something that lays down a bit of ink too...

For the fun of it I tried roughing out in colored pencil and inking straight over the top (with afore mentioned fineliner and sharpies). I went a bit overboard with the border, but it was fun getting the nice effect with a super thick, slightly running out sharpie. gives it a nice texture.

Removed the blue with photoshop after scanning. ...and you can see the old arm that wasn't working well. Not a strong enough silhouette.

Hope everyone's having a great Thursday,
Don't let the lightning bugs into your harddrives,

Youth animation, scribbles, and why I haven't done those requests...

So, sorry for the lack of...well, everything, but I've been super busy the past few weeks.

Firstly, I was hired by 'Committee for Geelong' to make some short animations for a presentation relating to a project for helping out youths with troubled upbringings.

It's not the usual tone I work with, but I think it worked out pretty well for the timeframe I had. It was really interesting making something dramatic. The music track is 'A Time To Mourn' by Charles Schlacter from royaltyfreemusiclibrary.com.

Also I've been flat chat animating on a pilot, which has been super dooper fun!

...and I know I haven't gotten to the rest of those drawing requests, but I'm getting to them! Really I am.
I just need to sleep a bit first...

in the meantime, here's a couple of sketches I scribbled.

Hope everyone's having a great night,

Request 2: Vegetarian Meeting

Request number two for Sandra Chiang: yeah i want a rotten onion man meeting cherry radish lady, please!

Had a lot of fun tweaking the colors with this one. Getting a nice balance of pastels and textures 'n' stuff.
And yes, I've decided to do them in the order they were requested, though I've gone through and rough sketched/thumbnailed all of them in some way shape or form.

Anyways, should probably get some sleep, or something like it.
Hope you had a great Wednesday, and catch you all soon,
