And an animated logo

While I'm at it...


While I'm at it, may as well post some of the logos I've worked on over the last few months. Some more successful than others, but still, another string to the bow! Dunno why the HAPM one is coming up shades of orange. It's meant to be blue! I'll fix at a later date.

Lara and Shane

A friend of mine is making a book for her boyfriend for Christmas. She asked for a cartoon of herself and himself wearing crowns, backpacks and magnets on their feet...? I don't ask, I just obey the brief. And here it is!

Animation Showreel Lite

Here's the lite version of my showreel. Pared-down, cleaned up and streamlined. Because the other one was a little heavy...

Solar System

An expansion on the original Earth idea. Obviously it's not the complete Solar System. Only Neptune, Jupiter, Mars and Earth. But you get the general idea. Used CC Sphere, fractal noise, Trapcode Particular, CC Particle and other bits and bobs. Doesn't look great here, but in High def.... slightly better....

Earth Rotation

Something I whipped up in After Effects the other night. It uses CC Sphere, fractal noise and some other little tweaks and effects. Quite a spiffy result considering I just used a regular old map of the earth! Good old Video Copilot and it's array of wonderful tuts!

After Effects test

Been messing about with my favorite new program of all time, Adobe After Effects. Just arse-boxing around with Particle World, and following tutorials from the wonderful site, Video Copilot. Took a photo of a courtyard at the back of the Boulder Media building and applied some effects to it. God, how I love After Effects.

I'm on the nets!

My website's finally up and running. It's not much, just a portfolio, really. But it's a beginning, and shall be redesigned, reimagined and reposted in the future. For now though...

The Bear And The Boy

Completed in 2003, this is an animated short I created as part of my final year in college. The backgrounds are kinda weak and the animation is... dodgy, but it's a complete film! It'd be a whole lot different if I'd known then what I know now!

Showreel Titles

The end titles for my showreel. Created them using Adobe After Effects, a wonderful program I've been getting my head around recently. It really is a great program! For tutorials, check out Video Copilot.

Robot Bear expanded

Here's another quick sketch I did. Based on the robot design I did before, but a little less cartoony... for a robot bear!


Something I was messing about with t'other day. Mignola-inspired (thanks Jamie) Batman
