Why? Because I've had a fair few people ask me if I have Tumblr so they can follow me. Either that or my work will get reposted without credit and I'll have to break someone's legs.
Anyway, add/follow/blow up in a firey ball of death and destruction.

A wise man once said "I told you man. I told you about stairs!"
I was walking down the stairs yesterday and completely and utterly missed the bottom step, fell and landed on my right knee. Which is connected to the right side of my pelvis. Which is what causes my back pain. I'm very sore.
In this uncannily real and dramatic reconstruction, you can get an idea of what it looked like.
I laughed. A lot. It was an amazing fall. Notice how there is hardly any upper body movement in this animation? That's because there wasn't. I was holding a tray of plates and cups and didn't drop A DAMN THING. It was a funny fall and I didn't drop a thing and NO ONE saw it happen.
I have a bruise. And my knee hurts. I would love to have had a video of this fall but my life-like animation will have the suffice.

We, as humans, can generate sound, smell, movement, warmth and shadow. We cannot generate light. We are drawn to it, as if we cannot escape our primal fear of the dark.

I've been playing with (very) basic animations in Photoshop and Illustrator and although this is hardly Studio Ghibli, it's not bad for an hour of messing around! It's quite exciting coming from a 99% static image making background to think about how your characters will move, you can see it in your head and can draw an action on a page but to actually make them move is quite exciting. I like how the paper swatches I use change position on Lur's head like the actual sea (happy accident...)

Ok, this image needs a small explanation. I went to see Supersilent and John Paul Jones perform last year. During instrumental performances, I often enter a semi-sleep state where I am perfectly aware of the music and everything around me but I am somewhat asleep. When I'm like this, I often get really vivid images flash into my head, they don't slowly come into focus but literally jump into view in my mind's eye. It's pretty weird and it happens without the aid of external substances. This is one such image that appeared during this performance.
