Vaati


This month's Character Design Challenge was a redesign of a character from Legend of Zelda. I've never played it but chose Vaati, as a New Orleans Voodoo style magician. Unfortunately I have too much on this month to prep for Supanova, so im not sure if ill get to finish him off. Here is the concept scribble I did.

Travelling Guest Speaker

In the past two weeks I have had the pleasure of talking to students of Animation and Film at two of Australia's Arts universities; Griffith University's Film School and The Victorian College of Arts (The VCA). These were similar to past talks I have done at RMIT. 

It was lovely to return back to my old university in Queensland and share all the work and my stories over the past ten years since graduating from Griffith. Here I did a two hour talk and Q & A. I showed some of my pilot and talked about the progress from developing it at uni and how much it changed over the years. I wish all the best to the new students starting their journey in the BA Animation degree.

There are more people in here...it isnt empty!
I also had to opportunity to visit the VCA in Melbourne for the first time, a college responsible for many brilliant artists in our field, including Adam Elliot (who I managed to meet recently). I was interviewed for a couple of hours in front of students across a few areas of production, talking about my process making the Irazu CN pilot and all my experiences in my life and career. I really enjoy talking to students and sharing my tips. I look forward to returning in the future.
Posters for my talk ALL over the place.
This is officially the largest screen I have seen Irazu on.
