Building Inspector

Here's an animation of the illustrations I mentioned a few posts back.
There's a few more on my vimeo page.

Spydentity

Here's a digital piece I did in work about a year & a half ago when I was learning how to use Flash (I'd probably use AfterEffects if I was doing it again now as the animation in Flash is a bit jumpy). This was an internal presentation piece for a communications client that bookendended the rest of the presentation, so whenever it fades to black in the middle it would then cut to more info about that type of customer.
They wanted it to have a kind of techy spy movie vibe to it, so it's kind of a homage to the Bourne films and Bond and the like.
I only had a few hours to design & animate it so it's pretty basic & repetitive and some of the sound effects don't synch up exactly, but it was a fun little piece to work on!

Get Carter


Turned my Classic Caine illustration into a poster for Get Carter, which got featured on Reelizer again. This might become my new hobby!

iPaddy






I recently did some illustrated borders for Paddygram, an iPhone app for St. Patrick's Day where you can add a frame to your photo & send it to someone as a Paddy's Day greeting. The deadline was pretty tight, had to turn them all around in about a day & a half, and they were going to be seen on a fairly small screen so decided to keep them fairly simple.
I was given the four titles and it was up to me to add as many Oirish clich├ęs as I could muster, like a pint of Guinness doing a jig!
begorrah.

Presentation Animation Illustration





Here's some illustrations from a couple of short animations I did a while back. The client had written the script & was pretty specific about what he wanted, they were sort of little gags that he'd play during a presentation. I had a really tight deadline on this so I chose to do a sort of 60's style and keep all the shapes fairly simple to make it easier and faster to animate. The animation itself was fairly crude which added to the humour of them.
