Sketchbook Project

I have just posted off my contribution to the Sketchbook Project. "It's like a concert tour, but with sketchbooks."
Ours is a collaborative sketchbook, mostly Melbourne comics artists. Draw and post it on is our method. I contributed a page to the little moleskin sketchbook. See pic

To wander when I day dream













Here is a picture of me prancing down the street in Edinburgh. I am pictured just outside the hostel I lived in for about 8 months. Ah those were the days...
I think one of my favourite things to do is to realise memories of places and people through drawings, and particularly so in comics. I really don't do it enough. It is like having many places to wander to when I day dream. To have time to day dream is quite important to me, and to my comic-ing.












This is a picture from the same time (and indeed the same comic that I did about September 11). It is me chatting to a Belfastian named Rick Brown. I have tea, he has coffee.













This is Victoria Street which heads from George IV Bridge to the Grass Market. I worked in a little shop here. It is a beautiful cobbled street. My only regret in this drawing is that I ran out of time to draw in the cobbles. Imagine it is cobbled...

(Why have these pictures suddenly popped up? Just trying to organise my folders of images... its a little crazy in there)

Cars n jumps

video
Working on a project in AE today, though I have been a little side tracked with this little experiment. The cars are from "How Live TV is Made", an animation I did for display in the ACMI Screenworlds exhibition. The jumping man is from a demonstration I did for the kids up in Jabiru, and the image on the left edge is an etching (with a blending mode applied).
So just playing with a few things in After Effects. Mostly I have been playing with the sound. Just a little experiment, though it may go further.

Incidently, I have the cars featured in a card/postcard here
