|That's also the shape DVDs are... whooda thunkit?!?!|
This is the pinnacle though. The Amazing Few have a live DVD out and I did a bunch of stuff on it. They'll be selling it at their show tomorrow (Saturday 6th) and you should definitely come along and dance with me and buy a copy. It's a great DVD with colours and fun and what not. Also my animation's in there so you can't lose right? RIGHT?!
Anyway, the gig is called the Throwing Shapes Show and it's certain to feature new animation by me, including the image above probably. As well as others. That's a loada shapes!
Venue: The Grand Social (formerly Pravda)

I've just started a new blog of weird celebrity (mostly Tom Cruise) drawings called Tom and Pals. I did a load of these recently and had a lot of fun with them. I'm hoping to do more. Don't ask me why. I thought it'd be a good idea to make a separate blog for them rather than just post them here. It'll avoid this blog feeling repetitive and will motivate me to make more of them... I reckon anyway.
Currently I've a small back up of them to post but I should get going on some new ones soon too. Do enjoy!
I recently made these 3 images of my own face in Photoshop.
I initially made the first one just for my Facebook profile as I was bored with what was already there. Later on I made the second one and now the third, mostly because I'd shaved and the first one no longer looked like me.
The second 2 have a similar approach in that I took a photo of myself and then layered over it with the polygonal lasso in Photoshop. It gave me some nice angular shapes. I wanted to follow my face but not precisely. I like the effect that came out.
The colours are just my usual thing. Something about drawing over my face in black and white appeals to me...
The Amazing Few just posted a video of a few highlights from their 3D New Year's extravaganza show. The video is full of animation from me in magical 3D!! Ooooohh!
I had a lot of fun working on this and look forward to working with these guys again. If you ever see an Amazing Few gig coming up, I suggest you go. They're always great fun and usually feature plenty of animation from yours truly.
I will be screening at the New Volta Film Club yet again!
This time it will be my experimental short music video 'Amanda's Tears'
