Portrait 16

Business cards!

Woop woop! Since I'll be attending Annecy this year I thought I'd design my own business cards (which I've actually never had before, shock!). Anyway, I printed out a 100 and they arrived yesterday, and they look great!:)

Final Design

Woop woop! 

Just finished the final character design of my short, Obscurum. THE MONSTER.  I had a little bit of a hard time designing this character, as I wanted him to have more of a disturbing & creepy quality to him. 

Next step is turnarounds, model-sheets and color

Shapes study 4

I was a little late with this one, but I did a a little shape/character study. I love doing these, as they really teaches me how to push the character's body shapes and contrast!

I wish I had time to color them though, but for now I'll leave them in B&W.

Comp study 1

I wanted to finish up this composition study which's been stewing in my folders for a bit. I think it took longer then it should, because it was hard to find out what to draw in each panel. XD 

I used the template from one of  Bobby Chiu's youtube streams, you can check it out here. It's a great way to brush up on your concept art - and composition skills. Hopefully I'll have time to do more of these!

Bingo time!


An "Iron Carpet" just crushed my creativity this morning, so I just decided to draw an old bingo lady...

Who doesn't love old ladies though, right?!... RIGHT?

Character design progress

Continued my re-designs of the FATHER character in my short-film, Obscurum. I want him to be imposing and strong, but also a little off-balance, slightly like a drunk. 

Check out my production blog to follow my progress and more pre-production art for the film:)

ITFS 2017

Just finished off a week at the ITFS 2017 (International Trickfilm Festival) in Stuttgart. For those of you who's not familiar with it, it's one of the most well known animated film festivals in Europe, after Annecy. I've been going there for the past 4 years it's become sort of a tradition for me, as it's basically 6 days of screening (the newest) short and "long"  animated films, both student and professional. They also show the newest Animovies,: Feature films.

Since festivals are sometimes a hit & amp;miss with their programs, I would say the overall quality of the festival this year was great, I would even go as far as saying it was the BEST! The three main programs, "International Competition, "Young Animation" and "Tricks for Kids" were AWESOME, specially for the kiddies. The one program I was a bit disappointed with, was the "Panorama" program. It's where they show the darker/serious Int. short films.

Other highlights: Meeting friends and old acquaintances from the past. Talking to Bill Plympton, and buying a signed print from his newest film, "Revengeance"! Woop woop!!

ITFS always manages to inspire me, and although it's back to the grind again, I do so with new energy and vigor! 

Until ITFS 2018!!
