Bugging The Baby Elephant

There were hundreds of these orange bugs taking off from the bushes in front of the baby Elephant enclosure at Melbourne Zoo...I'm pretty sure if he was where I were standing, he'd be a little freaked out.

Moi

I'm redesigning my website so that it's compatible for tablets, ipads & phones...here is my new personal illustration for the main page (minus colour background). 
My flash website doesn't really work anymore & I need to go back to basics...no more pretty roll over buttons with falling leaves (sad face).
Gotta keep up with the times!

Vial of Youth To Be Screened At ASIFA Egypt

I found out this morning that my 2005 graduate short film Vial of Youth is going to be screened at the ASIFA Egypt (in Bibliotheca Alexandrina, the major library in Africa on the shore of the Mediterranean). Its part of The Best of 25 Years, A retrospective of graduate films from the Griffith University, Griffith Film School Bachelor of Animation program.

If you want to check out the event details on Facebook, check out this link

If you would like to watch the film on it's own blog, check it out here...there are also some old bits of artwork and photos.

Wonder Woman Welcomes 2013


First drawings for 2013 & I decided to do something that would ease me into it; good old Wonder Woman. 
I've done the usual action pose and another version where I have given Diana a hip hop vibe...my new sketch project could be Hip Hop Heroines?
I'm hoping to do much more drawing this year & work on my projects (a children's book & a plushies project) that I had to put on pause due to the pilot. 

Maik bought me a fancy Samsung Note for Christmas, so I'm going to take that out & try some life drawing. I'm going to be horribly rusty, but that's why I need to go do it. I also want to go to the zoo soon to do some animal sketching with it.

Christmas Gifts From John K

Last year I donated some money to John Kricfalusi's (John K) Kickstarter campaign "Cans Without Labels". The first part of my gifts came in the mail this week and it was pretty exciting to get some signed doodles of Ren and Stimpy, Yosemite Sam and George Liquor. I also love my Sody Pop and Jimmy the Idiot Boy pencil toppers and Spumco club membership...I feel like I'm 12 years old!

Here are some photos of some of the items I received. 

Thanks John!
