Long Time No Duck

HEYA BUTT HEADS! I mean, sorry. Best buds.
I've been so deep in film production I almost forgot I had a blog. So here is a splattering of stuff for you.

Hey look! Using TVPaints crazy system called the stroke animator, I hand animated all this rain. Aint no cycles there. Pretty neat and really quick and easy for what I think are great results.

Here are some drawings.

Aint even gonna explain any of that haha.

Kairos Trailer: This is by some buddies of mine in Paris, former Gobelins students who formed Studio La Cachette. It's like French Ghibli!So unreal. I would looove to see a feature film of this. This is a trailer for a comic believe it or not!

New Gobelins short, Myosis. Not crazy about the narrative and themes (a little cliche) but visually? OH BABY!

Umbra: This one is slightly biased as it's my animation mentor Malcolm Sutherland's award winning piece. BUT IT'S SO GOOD.

Late Night Work Club presents Ghost Stories: This is a collection of beautiful beautiful short films by some really out there unique animators. Take a load off, cos this one runs 40 minutes! BUT WORTH IT.
The most exciting piece of Alex Grigg's short "The Phantom Limb". This guy is the best working Australian Animator in my opinion.

Ducks 2013

A bit of a dump of junk.

Annnnd I was the illustrator for the 2nd issue of the very cool Brisbane writers journal Stilts. Here are some of the illustrations that I drew like... almost a year ago!

There are more in the issue too!
Annnnd here are my christmas cards for 2012. The last one is for my big sister of course.

ANNNNNND here is an amazing picture I found that I forgot I drew and was wrongfully put into a folder called mess. It should be in a folder called Masterpiece.
I sure like pink hey.
Hey some duck background samples why not
More... pink!?

Oh and we have a bunch of new Beast Chorus entries that you may have missed, they gettin better and better! Here is a little sample of one illustration, but it's the written pieces that my man Samuel Maguire writes that makes it!

Wait a second... that looks very... OH MY GOOOOOOOOOD
