At the moment I don't have the longest commute in the world - which is good - but being stuck on public transport for any length of time is not really a pleasurable experience. Without the space to draw, I've taken to doing "memory sketchs". This guy was on my train this morning...

Character Design

As I mentioned I've just finished an online character design course with Steven Silver. It was a great course. Below is a lowly thumbnail which we developed into a (much stronger) cleaned up character design.

Old babies?

More doodles. I'm in the process or (amoungst a million other things) clenaing these drawings up and redrawing them a bit prettier - so watch out. But for now here are two old men, who are babies - a bit weird, but hey. There just geometric shapes, with heads and limbs, which was kinda fun to do...

I'm Back!!

So hello there! And a special hello to anyone who has stopped by since (ahem) August 2006 and has had nothing new to view. Sorry about the brief (!) break, but rest assured, the ol blog is up an runnin again - better than ever.

I've been doing lotsa good stuff over the past (cringe) 20 months - including recently finishing the very talented Steven Silver's online Character Design course and coming up with various short film concepts including one which will probably feature quite heavily here in the future, concerning the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Anyway, to get things started - here's a mish mash of nonsense that have escaped from my brain, since last we spoke.

Thanks for stoppin by,

Take it easy,
