Today 5 years ago, my first nephew was born. Way back then, I dedicated my first post on this blog to him. He's grown a lot since then and has just started school. Here's a few digital doodles to mark the occasion!
I don't particularly like this last sheet but I included it to remind myself that today during lunch, my 3 year old daughter said she wanted a real dog!
Here's a publicity spot I worked on awhile back for Boolab studios. It was for the new Frixion pen for the Pilot brand. Although it looks like one continuous scene, it was animated by a crew of around 7 animators using Wacom tablets and Flash. I just did 3 scenes, starting from just as he falls to his knees in the desert and finishing just before the first drops of rain fall on his head.
It was good fun to work on, especially the quick "morphing through history" section.
Started working in animation in 1989 with Don Bluth Ireland.
1996 went to Warner Bros, London.
Since 1998, have been living in Spain participating in various european features including the Oscar nominated "CHICO & RITA"
