Earlier in the week my little boy had his 2nd Birthday. His favourite book is the Gruffalo, so his party was done in the theme. Mum did lots of Gruffalo goodies including Gruffalo Crumble, Lolly bags and decorations and I made this model to sit atop his cake.
He was a bit of a rush job (especially the paint), with less than a week of nights to complete it. It was a lot of fun though 🙂
He’s since retired and moved to the penthouse suite in Jude’s IKEA bookshelf.
I was Principal Artist on BandStars, which launched earlier this month for iOS. The game was made by our team at The People’s Republic of Animation/Six Foot Kid and is published by Halfbrick, makers of Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride.
It’s currently #1 music app in a bunch of countries and is free to download and play, with optional in app purchases for upgrades to studio items, instruments and certain characters. So what are you waiting for? Get it here!
One of my favourite things to do is just zone out and draw faces. I set the clock to five minutes and did this (video’s at double speed).
Last year I did some character design work on a production called The Eggsperts, with Flying Bark. Some early pics have surfaced here. It’s interesting to see how he ultimately ended up as a 3d model, with the colour changes and axing of a couple of limbs. I bet the animators were relieved!
Quentin Blake is wonderful. I love watching him draw, his illustrations are so full of energy and life! Please, if you have the inclination, watch this video…
