"Winter Days (冬の日 Fuyu no Hi) is a 2003 animated film, directed by Kihachirō Kawamoto. It is based upon the renga of the same name by the 17th-century Japanese poet Bashō."

This is a project I blogged about in 2004 and I am so excited that many of the animations are now available to view online!

Animating Jukurrpa

In February and June this year I have been working in Yuendumu NT at PAW Media as an animation trainer. Here is a link to some of the projects made ANIMATING JUKURRPA
Keep an eye on the Animations listed - there are still a couple to come I believe.
Kinky Kinky is a bit of a treat if you've only got time for one.

Here is a picture of some dogs waiting outside the Nguru Walaja (or Walalja) shop.

At the moment I am trying to animate one thing but being distracted by another. That is, trying to redo this (see pictured) old 2002 animation called Clickity Clix. It was originally done as an animated comic for SBS site Cornerfold (now offline). I like it. It involves a bit of Bingo, some monsters, and Ferret Face.
