A Liar's Autobiography - official trailer!

So here is the trailer for the 'A Liar's Autobiography' on which I worked on last autumn.
I art directed the song section of the film with Director Jane Davies from A for Animation - it was soooo much fun!
And I am very chuffed that they used our design as the title image!

Goodbye JSA!

After 6 and a bit years of fun and hard work, I am sad to be leaving Jamaica Street Studios and all my great friends and colleagues. I will miss the views, the gossip, Katie and Kim's Kitchen, the beautiful Tom Plant and all the oddities that Stokes Croft has to offer.
I am not going too far out of my comfort zone though, as I am setting up my new studio down the road in Old Market alongside the kind and talented animators of A Productions.
I will still be freelancing and doing business as normal, the only difference will be heating in the winter and an endless supply of cake! Wahey!

Knitting Hero!

This is an editorial I did a couple of months back for Knit Today magazine.
I was commissioned to design a logo and a superhero character for a knitting competition.
This was a really fun job as I got to design some typography and characters.
I experimented with making brushes on Photoshop and am quite pleased with the textured results.

A Liar's Autobiography crew screening

Wahey! Last night I went with Mr Paul Hill from A for Animation to the  
Graham Chapman A Liar's Autobiography crew screening. 
Paul was compositor and I was art director and designer 
on the 'sit on my face' song section of the stereoscopic 3D animated film!
Sadly Director Jane Davies couldn't make it as she was getting a tan in France...

There were about 300 people and we got 
free sweets and popcorn!

I packed some smart shoes to posh for the night
but realised I had brought 2 different right shoes.
I wore them anyway.

Animations for health website

Above 'high blood pressure', below 'stop smoking'

Here are some designs I did for the short animations with A Productions for MV Studios which was for the My Health Tips website (with the voice of Terry Jones!!!).
The pile of dead animal meat was later changed to a burger.
