Work Vs Cartoons

It's been a little while since my last update since l've been quite busy with work and a few freelance bits'n'pieces. As for work you can see the latest game trailer we've just completed online at http://www.gametrailers.com/player/22855.html . And below is one of 2 freelance cartoons that completed the other day ...

REAL ART!! (Thanks to Pixar)

Finally! Thursday, Friday and Saturday l spent down in Melbourne attending some visiting speakers from Pixar at ACMI's 20 Years of Pixar exhibition. I can't describe in the blog what l got out of this so l won't even try! However one thing l managed to do was to be inspired enough to come home and spend yesterday painting. With REAL paint. I'd bought a small pack of gouache a few months ago with a plan to try to paint again. Something l'd been hoping to do for the last 5 years since l discovered Painter and hid my paintbox under the bed.

To cut a long story short: the following 2 paintings are far from my best work ... but hey, they're REAL.

(I must mention that l used Bob Kato's method when painting these, which is why l stole his intense aqua uplight in the second painting. I'd actually like to go back and fix this (along with a few other things) but l can't remix the colours l need .... if only l had an eyedropper tool.)

Zombie Dave

This was just an experimental illustration using some new brushes in Painter. I don't really like how it turned out at all.

The other night l thought l'd do a warm up sketch before starting on a cartoon l'm working on. The first thing l saw was the wood carving of an Elephant we got in Africa. I sketched away. It turned out ok so during my lunch break today l thought l'd add some colour ...

Howdy Partner

Going to try to post a little more often. Its been a bit hard as l've been putting my children's book submission together since l can't show any of the work. But here's anothery from the vault. The other star from my never-to-be-completed short western, ... the Sheriff.

Self Portrait

For some reason there's an unwritten rule that great artists create a self portrait very couple of years. I'm obviously not in that crew since this is my first in 28 years. It'll be the first for a while to come too, there are much sexier people to draw out there than me ... it was good fun all the same though.

Another Lucky Monkey

Why is this one lucky? Because his gun is the one smoking.

Lucky Monkey

This was a sketch that came about when trying to come up with some ideas for Tshirt designs. Some of the ideas where ok ... many were not, I quite liked this idea of a South American drug dealing chimp though for some reason.

Gone Fishin

Since there's nothing new l can post at the moment ... here's something from the vault. A couple of ideas for a short film that is yet to materialise beyond these concepts.


No new posts for a while sorry. Been sidetracked, mostly with our trip to Africa, but also working on a pet project or 2 that l can't post any sketches for. So in the meantime, here's a couple of pics from our journey through Tanzania & Kenya

I promise there's more visual goodness to come soon.
