New Work From Earlier This Year

Earlier this year I did a "hundreth" redesign of my characters and story based around my 2012 pilot just to freshen it and my body of work up. We also wrote a script and storyboarded it, which you can see below.
I have also updated my website and Im glad I finally get to show off some of my 2012 pilot stuff, since the option has expired. If you would like to see artwork from the original pilot and conceptual work from all the years beforehand leading up to it, you can check it all out at my new website here and here. I will be uploading a video of my favourite scenes from the pilot soon, so stay tuned!

Midnight Scribble

Little character I came up with tonight...don't have a name for her yet. She can be my new alter ego, since I own these clothes. She looks way cooler in them though...mostly because I don't have bubblegum icecream coloured hair.

Freelance, Freedom and Frederator Pitching.

Freelance jobs finished! Money earned!

Unfortunately I can't show the other job I have been doing. It will be revealed at the end of the year if all goes to plan.

That is all my freelance done for this first half of the year. Second half will just be my position at Working Dog and my own artwork...and relaxing!

First thing on the "me" agenda: new website!

Then its back to my children's book and a whole lot of new art for my first ever booth at a convention in 2016.

My very last bit of business this week will be on Saturday morning...I'm pitching storyboards to Channel Frederator for funding. Wish me luck!

Aardvarks Eating Asparagus

 
Finally got this illustration done. Being ill for two weeks caused a big slump. Anyway, I have FINALLY gotten around to the animal pages of my book! This is one of the first sketches I ever did for this book project. I'm pleased with the way he turned out after such a long time. But now I have to take ANOTHER break to storyboard an animated short in my evenings for a pitch. If only we didn't have to spend eight hours of the good part of the day working for rent and food...then we could just sit around and draw all day.

February Update

Today I rode to the dog park to lay in the sun to draw dogs and read Batgirl comics.

Unfortunately for the past two weeks I have had a virus that sent me into the hospital. So I have not been able to continue any of my art projects due to being bed bound and then because I wasnt able to exercise, my old back pain came back. So to make my back better, I cant sit on the computer over the weekend. So lame! I should be ALL better by Monday and then I can get back to exercise and artwork!

January Book Update

I'm determined to keep this personal book project going. Here is another page. I am finally finished with the humans in the intro, everything after this will be animals for a while...so excited. Although I have a feeling some freelance and project pitch work I have to do before March might stall this book for a month or so.

Sia Inspired

I love this music video for Sia's Elastic Heart and I have been itching to do a scribble. My favourite part is when Shia LaBeouf randomly climbs the cage and just hangs...the dancer, Maddie, is just so engaging and a brilliant dancer. I love her expressions. Such a character.

Officeworks Growing Minds App


I made some game graphics for a school brain training app for Officeworks called Growing Minds. I did this at Millipede (my new job). Download it for Apple or Android and you can check out my work. The Dodgeball game was my favourite to work on. 
(Logo not by me, just the pencils)



"Growing Minds provides a fun and healthy collection of brain games for students of all ages from prep to year 12. Each game is based on classroom curriculum and focuses on improving attributes of the brain, including memory, attention, speed, flexibility and mathematics by presenting simple math equations, literacy questions, and problem-solving puzzles."

2014 Wrap Up

The end of 2014 turned out to be a very busy one and I am officially wrapping up 2014 today. 
After returning from Peru I began a big search for a job (after finishing working on The Day My Butt Went Psycho) and nothing much came back from the 30 or so applications and enquiries I sent out. Thankfully I found a full time position as a designer at Millipede in Melbourne, a game app studio. I also had some freelance work doing some turnarounds for a toy line and I picked up a gig helping out a sports agency design some mascots for a football club, which will continue in 2015.

Surprisingly had some interest from Nickelodeon Jnr as a possible future designer and got my name on the books at Penguin Melbourne. Im hoping to get some freelance work for either of them sometime in the future. Call me anytime, guys!

So last night I did the final bit of freelance for this year (finished up at 4am this morning) and today is my last shift at Millipede for the year. 

In 2015 I will continue to work on my book, which I have been really enjoying and I will be hoping back onto my Cartoon Network pilot project and reworking it for other funding avenues. 

I wish all the best to everyone and hope all my fellow friends, animators and illustrators a prosperous 2015 and a Merry Christmas!
