Blue Sky - RIO

Here is the trailer for "Rio". I worked on this film at Blue Sky Studios, New York, back in 2007, as an Environmental Designer, when the film was originally being pitched.
Hopefully, in some time to come i will be aloud to share some of the original concept art and designs i created for the film.

For you guys who know me, or follow my blog, you will be aware that my graduation film was set in Rio, and so i have spent many a hour drawing shacks and studying the environment. If you want to see my grad film and artwork etc check out "Favelados".

The Illusionist - Official Website

Check out the official, new website for Sylvain Chomet's, hugely anticipated, 2D feature, "The Illusionist". There is plenty of animation, stills and information for you to drool over..

I lived in Scotland for just over 2 years, during the film's production. I worked on The Illusionist for year, and was forever blown away by the style, immaculate attention to detail and of course, some of the best 2D animation i have ever seen.

Well done to every one who worked their socks off, to make "The Illusionist" such a beautiful and wonderful film.
Make sure to go check out this wonderful creation from June 16th 2010.

"Drawing Inspiration"

These few images are visual development, pieces i have made for a short flash animated film, currently in production at Partizan, called "Drawing Inspiration".
The film is being made in Soho, London and should be finished in the next few months. Keep an eye out for it.
You will notice, the styles are pretty different to my usual way of working, which were really fun to make. I was able to step away from the computer for a change and dive into my "REAL" paint box and splash out using traditional watercolours.
