Doing everything, all the time.

It's been ages since my last blog post. Crazy times. Uni is finishing up in a couple of weeks. I'm also doing a 3D animation course through CDWstudios, which is amazing. Trying to write a thesis proposal and project proposal has left little time for fun.

Finishing up with uni has had my mind in a bit of a daze. It's been pretty hard to concentrate on structured writing, with the thought of the real world looming over my head... Sure has been a crazy year. Can't believe how much new info I have fit in my head, pretty sure I've pushed some old stuff out.

Projects that I have recently finished up that I had a great time working on are the 'Got me a beard' music video for 'The Beards.' Chris Edser oversaw this project, it is his gem, so check out his site heeeere. This was an awesome animation job to be a part of. Working with a bunch of super inspirational people, learning new things and drinking lots of coffee. I started off colouring the other animators shots, then I got to animate some smaller characters, and finished up with a few whole scenes that I got to animate, under the direction of all the other animators.

Anyway, check out the music video here:

I also finished up on this super fun project:

I designed the marquee for an arcade machine box. It involved recreating existing retro characters in my own style. It was a great project. I was happy, the client was happy. I got paid. Life is good.

I have a showreel up on Vimeo to checkout as well. I'm really happy with it. It has some of, what I consider to be, my best animation work.

OH! big news. I got shortlisted in the QANTAS Spirit Of Youth Awards animation category. I don't know HOW. haha. I got shortlisted alongside some really brilliant animators. I am really honoured to be regarded so highly. It's been quite exciting. Although I didn't take out the top prize, it's such a huge reward to be shortlisted for something like that. I don't know, maybe I am good?

I have entered my animation work in AgIdeas Newstar competition too. The top 30 will be announced soon. So fingers crossed for that. Last shot at taking that one out, since I will no longer be a student after this year, EVER again. haha, well, not in a full time capacity anyway.

That pretty much sums up what I've been doing over the last 3 months. I better get back to it.

so much procrastination.

Procrastination is going to kill me this year at Uni.
Why, I'm doing it right now!
I have a brief due tomorrow and I've been playing 'Nyan Cat Jump' most of the day, watching Dr.Phil and updating my Facebook Page. Now I'm procrastinating by writing a blog about procrastinating.

Anyone got any handy tips to stay on task? I really should have this down pat by now...

Deviant Monster T-shirt Design

vote here

This is a dear little Monster named Oliver.

All he wants is to make friends. He's the friendliest monster you'll ever meet!

Give Oliver a vote, and he'll cherish your friendship always.

Painted in watercolours, then reduced to a 6 colour pallet in photoshop. Would make an adorable T-shirt in white or pastel blue.

I'd like to call myself a bit of a monster designer, so if you like monsters as much as I do, feel free to check out my illustration page  or check out my Etsy store  I'll have more monsters up for sale soon!

This entry features three monsters partying under a bed with the words "while you're asleep" written underneath, implying monsters like living under your bed for awesome parties!

I'd really appreciate your vote if you can spare a second! thanks again!
