Loopdeloop - BLACK AND WHITE


LoopdeLoop ran BLACK AND WHITE month in preparation for the Gertrude Street Projection Festival. Unable to shake the image of pandas out of my head, I was compelled to create this micro narrative of one polar bear's dream to be something different.

I created some GIFs of the animation to go up on tumblr, but, once again, their confusing image uploading system rejected every attempt, so I'm posting them here instead.

Animation Workshop MCA



 

The Vivid Ideas Character Design and Animation workshop was a success! 11 illustrators, very few of them having ever animated before, came together to create, refine and animate a character in three hours. I was even able to help those with the wackiest character design (like the tadpole) animated something rad.

Crime Factory "Fierce Bitches"

E 

I recently teamed up with Crime Factory to design the cover of their novella series Single Shot. A vintage style cover reminiscent of a box of Lucky Strikes, the entire series will feature this design, the first being Jed's FIERCE BITCHES (shown here with LEE, cover by Eric Beetner).

Loopdeloop - HOLLYWOOD



Loopdeloop teamed up with JibJab in January to take Loop to HOLLYWOOD.

Animating the only five things I know about Hollywood - cocaine, chiuauas, the homeless, overt sexism and Tom Cruise - I created a religious chakra for the gossip junkie.

Loopdeloop - BANG!


Loopdeloop teamed up with the Bang Short Film Festival in Nottingham in November to bring you, the viewers at home, the theme BANG!

The initial thought was something manic and loud and epileptic. Originally I wanted to use the backing track of Nicki Minaj's Stupid Hoe, but after deciding the copyright litigation wouldn't be worth it (and before realising that I could've just clapped my hands and made a "woop" sound), I settled on Hot Garbage's manic post rock opus Who Broke the Bang Boxxx (redux), which was probably a better (and louder) choice in the end.

I was a bit disappointed with the low number of seizures at the final screening, but I'm pretty happy with the final piece.

Horror Factory Lives!


Do you like scary movies?

Over the last couple of months I've been working on a bunch of illustration's for Crime Factory's horror fiction anthology HORROR FACTORY. Along with doing the cover, I also drew up TEN pages depicting a wide range of horror fiction (some obvious ones and some deep cuts).

And it's out now!

Check out some of the samples below and then head over to the Crime Factory blog to download the issue FOR FREE! Along with some amazing drawings of Freddy Kruger cuddling up with his teddy, there's some great horror fiction, interviews with some pretty big names in the horror world and some essays on some of the best horror films you've probably never seen (including my favourite, Martin).

Go get HORROR FACTORY!

Loopdeloop - HISTORY


I don't know which compulsion was greater: drawing Marie Antoinette in the bathtub eating cake OR doing a ukulele cover of Queen.

Loopdeloop - MAD


To celebrate a long running sponsorship by Madman Entertainment, July's Loopdeloop theme was MAD, so I dove headfirst into my own madness to create this loop. Apathy, self-depreciation, vacancy, sexual-frustration and awesome beards burst forth from my head, animated to an amazing soundtrack done by The Stealing Orchestra.
