Polaroid Picture Illustration - 5

I mentioned a while back that I had created a Polaroid Picture and not posted it. Here it is. This is the fifth Polaroid Image in the series. I'm not sure if I'll do any more. The plan was to create a website to present the images (similar to what I done with the Live Project). Not sure when I’ll get the time but that is still the plan. Either way the images are on my Portfolio and on this blog.

New Showreel - Winter 2011

I've just updated my showreel and uploaded it to Youtube.
It's about a minute less than my last one so I've taken a lot out edited a few clips and added some new stuff. The reel is viewable below. Eventually the link will be unusable when I upload anew showreel and take this one down. My plan is to update my showreel every 3 months. So an update should be due in January 2012.

Flash Animation - Throw Ball

Another Flash Animation, this one shows someone throwing a ball. Just an animation test, but I've added it to my Showreel and the Cartoon Cinema. The image below shows the drawings that make up the animation.

Flash Animation - Dog Walk

Been doing a lot of Flash Animation recently. It's been a while since I've done a four legged walk cycle so I thought I'd give it a go with a dog. The animation is on my showreel and is being presented as part of my Cartoon Cinema, which is on my Portfolio website. More on the Cartoon Cinema later. The image below shows the walk Cycle.

A Thousand Cranes – Published Poem

I have a poem published in a new anthology. The collection is called A Thousand Cranes – Scottish Writers For Japan. All the funds raised from sales go to the Japanese Red Cross and will help with the relief efforts for the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.
My poem is called ‘The Positives’. The book is available from Cargo Publishing and can be bought here.

Polaroid Picture Illustration - 4

Haven't posted one of these since July.
I was going to post one Polaroid image a month but I've been so busy recently. I completed this one back in July and have another image to post up, which I will do soon.
Basically these are illustrated images that mimic Polaroid pictures.

Flash Animation - Dog Fall

Now the I’ve pretty much wrapped up the live project, I’ve concentrated my attention on doing some Flash based animation (in my spare time I am mainly writing - I’ll blog about this later). The image below shows the sequence I’ve recently completed for a cartoon dog. It’s mainly just a practice but I think it looks good.
The final animation will likely make my portfolio.
The animation itself is short and I am about to complete a background for the sequence. I’ll post the final piece up here when I add to my portfolio and I also post up the another flash animations when I get around to finishing them.

Lomography ActionSplash camera

Earlier in the year I bought myself a lomography ActionSplash Camera. This camera takes 4 consecutive photos. The effects can be pretty cool. Here are some of my photos below.
