2001 Sketchbook picture














Had just got back from England and was doing some nice inky sketches.

Ferret Face T-Shirt promotion













Ferret Face T-Shirts
On sale $28.95

Do you want one? I'm getting a blue one.
Think of it as fund raising for ink.
I shall coax Rhys to give me a snapshot of the shirt in action.

While I am rendering (again)










Sample lady - currently she is rendering.













Page from 2001 England travel diary.
This image on the left is of a guy I went to the Museum with. He was French. We also went with a Canadian fellow - he may be the yellow one? It was a very interesting dynamic between the three of us. The French guy was 18, though seemed much older, he was quite arrogant actually, but we had some good arguments (One of them about littering). The Canadian guy was quiet and thoughtful. I didn't see either of them again after that.

The guy who went wrong.


This guy went wrong.
I thought I'd best save his life and screen-grab him.

lock it in

exporting exporting importing importing
(could be a kraftwerk song)
Fellow comickers are drawing (just down the road) for Tango and I'm locked to the computer exporting the final timelock anims. ...nearly done

fig 1. Little bloke with stool.

I still haven't been to the Len Lye exhibition. Apparently it is very good. I can't wait. It is always great to see an artist's multifarious mediums on display, to see how their ideas are realised in different forms.


Looks like the Chris Ware animation has come back. Fantastic.
(See post before last if you're interested in comic artist Chris Ware.)

Chris Ware animating for This American Life

This Chris Ware animation I tried to embed a few weeks ago. I believe it is from season 2, episode 5. I'll have to update later - if I'm incorrect. Below is another one. If you trawl around This American Life I'm sure there'll be more

Quimby The Mouse from This American Life on Vimeo.



It is most exciting. I'll have to find out the specs. Fikaris posted Quimby on FB.
