Captain Ahab

I'm doing a 'Cultural Exchange' with a friend to read books we selected for each other to read. My choice is Moby Dick, and so here is my impression of Captain Ahab.

Doodle practice

Just a lil doodle because I had been watching (and loving) the BBCs adaptation of Michel Faber's excellent novel 'The Crimson and the White.' The acting, sets and costumes were all wonderful. Watch it here.

I have returned to London... and I'm whiling away a few hours with 3eanuts.

"Charles Schulz's Peanuts comics often conceal the existential despair of their world with a closing joke at the characters' expense. With the last panel omitted, despair pervades all."

Yes indeed.

Goodbye ilovedust

Cupcakes from Primrose Bakery are always delicous, though this batch were a little bittersweet as they marked the end of my almost 4 years at UK design studio ilovedust. I'm off to South America for a few weeks and then I'll be returning to London to set up by myself and see how it all works out.
Goodbye ILD, you'll be missed. And thanks for the tasty cakes!

Around town

Animal hats! Likes.

Chinese New Year of the Rabbit

On February 3rd, it will be the Year of the Rabbit!
So this is a little early, but there won't be any posts on here for a while soon because I'm off traveling, so here are a couple of rabbit related doodles I made earlier. Wishing everyone a happy, lucky year of the rabbit!

Cat & Bird

Hurrah! I can finally share the finished short that I worked on with the superawesome ilovedust animation team.
It was very much fun to work on and I hope I'm going to work on more backgrounds and things for animation in the future.
Stay tuned for some bits and bobs of mine from the development stages.
