Dear Followers,

After uploading to this site for nearly 4 years and after more than 100 posts I have made the decision to stop updating. In the second half of this blog's life I've not had the time to post nearly as much as I have wanted because of work/time restraints. I am going to concentrate new work onto my portfolio site from now on and leave this blog here as an archive. I am trying to be better with twitter and am flirting with the idea of instagram, so I'll see you over there from now on!

Life Drawing 2016

It's probably been a full year now since I last went life drawing - moving around for freelance jobs has stopped me from finding a regular place. This evening was incredible, though I felt very rusty! I also had Simon and Garfunkel stuck in my head the whole time because all I could think was 'Hello Charcoal My Old Friend'! Cheesy but true!

(Apologies for image quality - I don't have my scanner with me at the moment. Images will be re-uploaded at a later date. All images are A3 in real life.)

One 5-minute sketch, one 15-minute rendered drawing

20-minute drawing.

Final 30-minute drawing.

Ballerina Animation

A little animated doodle I did this weekend of a ballerina, done after seeing this image by Omar Z Robles, which I felt just had to be animated:

It's been a while since I last posted, but I'm hopeful that a regular posting schedule will resume shortly!

Scarves of Red

Well, here it is, the finished film! When I originally had this idea back in October - after hearing this song for the first time - I thought I'd challenge myself to making a film in a month as I knew I had a free December. Very soon after deciding to do it however, December became decidedly not-free. So, the updated challenge was to make a film in a month's evenings and weekends. I hope you enjoy the result!

Happy New Year and may it bring you all happiness!

Well, film production is wrapping up today - a film made in a month! The final film will be put online tomorrow at 6pm. I hope you've all had lovely holidays spent with people you care about and are looking forward to a great New Year!

Happy Christmas Eve!

Latest image from the film. I hope you're all well and have a Merry Christmas!

First Glimpse

I thought today, as it's now half-way through the month and therefore half-way through this production it was more than time to give you a first glimpse of my main character!

This is a shot I'm working on at the moment, so no background yet. We're on target though - keep anticipating January 1st!
