Rumpus Backgrounds

Joe from Rumpus asked me to help out on some background designs for his latest animation. He's a bit of an no-outline fascist so will no doubt be getting rid of all my lovely black lines... but apart from that, he says he likes it. Which is nice.

I love doodling in me sketchbook... and the best bit is always finding stuff you;ve forgotten about. I did these before christmas when I was working on a character design pitch for Aardman. Nothing came of that, and I have been so busy working on the Musicians of Bremen that these got buried under a pile of paper on my desk. looking at it now, there are a couple of characters that are giving me the wink. I reckon I might have to try and animate some of them. Or at least colour them in a bit...

Back to work continued...

Just finished the illustration I posted a rough of last week...I probably shouldn't post this until the editors have approved it... but I quite like it and thought it would be nice to share. Its for a version of the Musicians of Bremen I'm illustrating. Got some more I could post, but I'll wait to see if there are any corrections before I do.

Back to work...

Well, I've had a lovely christmas break and combined with the trip to Japan I've had almost 2 and a bit months off. But now its back to the old drawing-wacom-board and time to get on with some illustrations...
This one is a work in progress, copying my rough sketch in Flash, then starting to add colour. I'll post the finished one later,,,

Exhibition Photos

At last I've been able to upload my photos from Japan onto the computer... and aren't they boring? I really should have taken photos when people were in there looking at my pictures. But it was a pretty small room and there wasn't enough space for visitors, me AND a camera.
