All Time Low - "For Baltimore"

I worked with Tinman on these videos for All Time Low, all based on Brett Jubinville's lovely artwork. 

On the "For Baltimore" video (above) I animated all of the dancing crowd as well as several characters and creatures throughout the yearbook.

For the lyric videos (below) I animated the majority of the album artwork in Flash (except for the band playing/mushroom cloud), it was then composited in AFX by Brett for multiple songs (featured on their YouTube page).

Hope you all enjoyed the Olympics and
are feeling super sporty now too!

Today as I was going through some old work I found a birthday animation which I always enjoyed and by adding an extra transition between the kayak & windsurfer I managed to turn it into a looping gif.

Doggy Paddle

Lucy the Westie

Lucy is my girlfriend's West Highland Terrier who I have got to know over the past year or so and after doing a bunch of Octopussy drawings I got a bit bored of counting the eight legs each time and threw in some dogs which led to the illustrated debut of Lucy!

Here's a tiled version of the first selection of Lucy drawings for use as a wallpaper,
I already have a bunch more done so look out for those in the future!

Stone Giant

A sketch of a creature partially inspired by Shadow of the Colossus - the stepped platform on his back would appear as part of the landscape if he laid down for a century long sleep, blending into the landscape.

Familiar & New.

Here's a selection of characters I had drawn a while back and never got round to putting online.
You may notice a few from other things (Firefly/Portal) whereas the rest are original characters.

A selection of lips that I've been using for a recent project, as I hadn't been collecting them together initially I ended up with a few almost-duplicates, but thought it was a fun image and reminded me of the drawers of mouth shapes you see Aardman using for their films & tv shows. 

And, since you've been patient with me, here's a preview of two more Batvent characters,
Ra's Al Ghul and Scarface the ventriloquist dummy.

Flight of the Conchords

Here are a few little drawings I did of the FOTC guys the other night while watching a couple of episodes, turns out I'd not seen them all (or my memory had dropped a few to make room for other things) but I couldn't forget their fantastic Daft Punk homage robot costumes!

Canada's Technology Triangle

I animated this information film about Canada's Technology Triangle and the Waterloo Region last year, all of it was hand drawn by me in Flash except for the factoid circles which were added after in After Effects.

Hourly Comic Day

Today was Hourly Comic Day and I tried to do something for each hour of the day, also I attempted to have a more interesting time of it than sitting at the computer the whole day.

Wild Lomography

Like Lomography? Like animals? 
You'll love their new range of animal print cameras 
and my animation to tie in with them all!

This was projected all night at the Lomography Toronto Store
on January 26th as part of their launch party for the new range of cameras.

Toast is this guy, and yes he's not wearing any pants.
If you want to find out more about him and a multitude of his other strange office co-workers then check out Jamie Smart's fantastic Corporate Skull comic at - but be warned it's not one for kids, (this particular image was from Issue 4-5).

Made because… who doesn't want to give animating 'willy-wobble' a go?

Batvent - Day 15

Here's a gift for you all since you've been so patient while I sauntered off and went skiing.

I also moved to Toronto at the start of the month and have started to finish off the remaining days of Batvent, I've got a few ideas for what to do with them all once I'm finished, maybe this year I'll come up with an advent idea before December!
