Christmas Ad

Let me explain... every year, my clan gathers for a battle royale between the five families. This year, part of the competition was to produce an ad for mince meat using any medium we like. This, is my effort.

Boulder Blog entry #4- The Thinker

This is my uncolored entry for the latest Boulder Blog theme- Scangers. Scangers, for those of you who don't know what they are, are a subculture of charming young folk in Dublin. They can be recognised by their thin, whispy facial hair, blood-shot, half closed eyes and pale complexion. They are typically adorned in tribal colors of Celtic jerseys and baseball caps perched at a 45 degree angle, covering approx. half of their beached hair. Known for their valuable contribution to society, small groups of scangers can be seen wandering the streets with cans of Dutch Gold in their hands, pointing out the quirks and foibles of any passer by. When travelling in larger packs, scangers are known to have a sudden surge of patriotic pride, a pride that paradoxically results in the destruction of the country the 'love' so well.

Samuel L. Wright

This be my god sonny, Sam. Born on the 9th August this year, he came into the world an 11lb 11oz little monster! This be a little sketch I did of him the other day. Head's a little long compared to how it actually is, but for better or worse, this is him!

Here's another short we worked on for the Disney Shorty McShort's Shorts program. This one, entitled Mascot Prep was completed in April... or was it May....?

REM @ The Olympia 2007 # 2

Some more photos!

REM @ The Olympia 2007

REM performed over 5 nights this week as a sort of performing rehearsal before recording their new album here in Dublin. I was one of the lucky... thousands to get a ticket to one of these extraordinary, intimate shows in Dublin's Olympia Theatre. Here are some of the photos I got of Michael, Mike and Peter rocking out to give us one of the greatest live experiences I've ever been at.

Boulder Blog entry #3- HAL 9000

I'm afraid. I'm afraid, Dave. Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I'm a... fraid. Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley, and he taught me to sing a song. If you'd like to hear it I can sing it for you.

Here's my entry for the third of the Boulder Blog themes, 'Favorite Film Scenes.' 2001: A Space Odyssey is my favorite movie, so here's HAL, the homicidal computer, made through Macromedia Flash. Just something I did to see how close I could get it to the actual HAL.

Robot bear

Here's a character I've been messing about with for a while now. It's for a short I've been mulling over about a couple of animals who escape from a laboratory. The rest, I'm keeping to myself for now!

Boulder Blog entry #2 - John McClaine

Well, the next theme for the Boulder Blog is up, and this time it's summer blockbusters. Since Live Free or Die Hard (which looks appalling, by the way, see CRITICAL MASS! for more info) is out this summer, I thought I'd do the bane of the Gruber family, John McClaine. Color version to follow...

Orangaroo final...

Well, here's my first completed submission for the Boulder Media blog. Had a crack at painting it, and this is the final result. First ever digital painting I've ever done.

Orangaroo in progress...

This is a work in progress. Never painted in Photoshop before, so I'm just experimenting, really. HELLUVA lot better than if I was using an old paintbrush and paint though!
