This blog is as old as the hills

May 16th, 2016 No comments

It’s funny how blogs are like sketchbooks…in this case, a half forgotten one that’s collecting dust in the attic. ?I’ll probably deprecate this and start fresh, as it’s not as relevant as it once was. I’ve used it primarily for design based work, but my animation usually takes precedence.

Lots of new things happening.
Most of my animation work can be found at
Vimeo.com/coopanimate

Including some animations from the North Bay Aquatics logo.

A few new logos over the past year or so, but I spent most of last year animating on

Mafia 3

and am now at Pocket Gems, where, after a stint on War Dragons, am on a new super secret IP.

Took another pass after many designer friends mentioned the swimmer got lost. Coach Marie likes this font, so I’ve narrowed it down to these.

Logo proposal

August 23rd, 2012 No comments

I had to opportunity to present a logo to my children’s school when it was renamed to be “Hidden Valley”

It was a great design challenge and I forgot how much I love logo design and how much work it can be. ?????It didn’t make the cut, but I was really happy at where it ended up. I took photos of indigenous Red Tailed hawks and did about 20 drawings to arrive at a shape and pose that felt appropriate. ?I ended up really enjoying inkscape, as I’d do some occasional tweaks to it at lunch while at work (animators don’t get illustrator) and found I now prefer it to illustrator as it’s light, fast and can edit with the speed I used work pre-Illustrator 6, before it turned into the juggernaught of all vector creation tools.

Cinematographs

July 28th, 2011 No comments

 

An interesting collaboration between Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg, which they dub Cinemagraphs, essentially looping animated gifs where often just part of an image moves. Really, it’s the principle of a strong pose with a moving hold, but done in an artful yet low tech way.

work in progress – MaisyJump

In getting back to this blog, I’m trying to figure out a purpose for it and to differentiate it from my teaching blog. It’s easy to become reticent about posting, but I’m going to start to use this as an opportunity to put myself out there again. I’ve been in a bit of an animation rut lately and hopefully putting up crappy unfinished works in progress will motivate me to buckle down and push them to completion.
