Loopdeloop - CONDOMS

In November, Loopdeloop teamed up with YEAH (Youth Empowerment Against HIV/AIDS) to promote World Aids Day and went with the theme CONDOMS. 

For my animation I wanted to try a different style of illustration that's usually limited to bored sketches in meetings. After deciding on the initial character and his banshee appendage, the rest was just building layers of flair and style upon that.

Flavour Friends

My friend Simone Bennett came up with the idea of flavour friends, foods that taste great together, i.e. potatoes and gravy (especially potatoes and gravy). So, I drew up and made badges which can be mixed, matched and then worn to express your personal favourite flavour friends, and then cringe at the excessive alliteration.

Loopdeloop - SPOOKY

My October entry to Loopdeloop's Halloween appropriate theme SPOOKY covers my favorite horror / basketball movie of all time, Teen Wolf (even better than Space Jam). I had started doing this animation with the entire point being I get to animate Teen Wolf doing a bitchin' slam dunk, however somewhere along the way I forgot about that. But it does have some sweet metal licks.

In September, Loopdeloop was involved in the 2011 Melbourne Fringe Festival with a permanent installation in The Warren, a bar set up at the Festival Hub. The installation was a collection of the best loops up to that point as well as some RABBIT themed animations done especially for the bar.

To tie all the loops together, I created some short animations of a rabbit looking through keyholes, ala Alice in Wonderland, viewing the secret animations on the other side. A little bit sexual, in a rather unsexy way.

A cut down version of this animation can be seen on the Loopdeloop website.

Hitler vs Churchill

These concept pieces were done for a comic project with Addam Duke that never really went anywhere. It was pitched as an alternative history WW2 story in which Hitler was a charasmatic body builder and him and Churchill would fight on the top of airships. The idea was neat and I liked a lot of things about the concept work. At the very least, it gave me some practice with sepia illustration fakery.

Adelaide Loves Baby Goats

A picture for my lovely and dear friend Adelaide for her birthday.

Loopdeloop - MASK

For this particular entry into Loopdeloop's August theme MASK, I wanted to try my had at a different type of animation. It took multiple attempts to try and get some satisfying movement, but eventually when the mask was falling apart, I had achieved the look I was going for.

Loopdeloop - MONSTERS

This particular image, done for Loopdeloop's July theme Monsters, was actually a redo of an animaton I had done a couple of years ago, lost on hard drives unknown.

Loopdeloop - OPPOSITES

My entry into Loopdeloop's June theme OPPOSITES.

I've always been fascinated by Bizzaro Superman ever since they mentioned it on Seinfield that one episode. So the first thing I thought of when Loopdeloop announced their theme was the ultimate showdown between Bizzaro and his (far more boring) antagonist Superman.

I did encounter a lot of confusion with my choice of 60's comic book B Characters (he was in an episode of Smallville though), however apparently there was enough Bizzaro love to be the ultimate winner of June's Loops.

Loopdeloop - LAUNCH

A homage to my favorite party host Andrew WK done for the launch of Loopdeloop, the monthly animation challenge. The thing I am most proud of is my ukulele cover of A.W.K's seminal anthem, Party Till You Puke.
