A small thing part of a bigger thing.


And here is the finished animation test, first of a series of fashiony things I'm enjoying playing with. Clothes and silly dance inspired by the brilliant Prada SS11 collection I still look at 3 years later- rococo sunglasses, finger waves and hawaiian shirts, yes please!


Amazing 20 year old box of 15 field bleed proof paper I am using to animate with at the moment :)



I made this tiny animation way back in the never ending snow earlier this year. It's for the second tutorial I've written for Digital Arts magazine and it should be coming out anytime now - this time it's about using AE particles in organic-y tactile feeling hand drawn animation.
As soon as I'm less busy I have plans to expand this little clip into something bigger...

Update: tutorial is now up and you can find here


The other day I remembered to check a website I haven't looked at in ages and was reminded just how much I love it - if you haven't seen it check out JeffBridges.com I love so much that he has such an impractical drawing based website and that he actually updates it, more famous people should have sites like this :)


little black book interview

I'm a little late in posting this, but the lovely people at little black book sent me a bunch of thoughtful questions about my work and the interview went online last week, you can read it here


This came today, a deck printed by zazzle with a design I did just before christmas :) 
I was a bit scared the print would be crappy and jpegy because the scan of the original drawing was on the small side, I'm really pleased it turned out so well.
Luckily it's not for me, I have all the co-ordination and relaxed stance of a stick insect when it comes to standing on anything mobile...


I've finally got round to uploading the second ad I directed for Tempo Tissues last year. It's actually a slightly evolved version of one of the 4 animatics I made over christmas 2011, It's amazing how much time these always seem to take. Those animatics were made just over a year ago, then we spent the summer sweating making this and then right up until christmas working on an alternative version for Italy. So in a way I spent a year working on this one commercial, off and on. I have to say it makes a lot more sense now in January than it did last July, it's annoying how out of synch moods and seasons can get with the work you are making! music as before, by Owen Davey.
