it's been awhile!

So I've been working away on the barista film and making progress :)
The script is almost finished and the characters are almost fully designed. I pitched it to rest of my course last week so hopefully it will be getting made :) any way here is the bible I pitched with. Have a flick through tell me what you think? I will do more post going through plots, characters and designs in vastly more detail.

Coffee, hands and tables

I'm in two minds about these. I like using photo's contrasted with simple cartoon but i think the angle of the camera may need to be more vertically flat on.

Bonjour Tim

It's about time here is my protagonist Tim. He is a awesome barista producing amazing latte art with little flicks of his wrist. Despite his confidence with steamed milk he lacks confidence with members of the oposite sex. for more read my pitch bible.......

Live long and try to prosper.

Alice Choi (mark 3)

OK her nose, mouth and face shape are fine. Her eyes still look a little off and her hair is almost there :) So hopefully il have more done to alice by tonight! Yeh i need to practise drawing eyes! Theres a divide in my house.....the ladys say her boobs are too big, but all us lads think there fine. To be honest she probs would suite small bosoms. also her neck needs feminizing and is her body far to small? i like the disprotion but is it to much?

Bus Print (drawing the back ground)

Alice choi (mark 2)

I think the face is an improvement but not sure bout the hair? I'll keep trying its important her face is sweet yet sexy... like she could be a bit of a man eater?

First design of Alice Choi

This is an ok start but its not quite rite I like her hair but maybe her face is too small and the features arnt quite rite they need to be slightly more chinese as her dads chinese. Any ideas people?

The start of new prints.....ABOUT TIME!

So yes i've had a break of about two years form actually making any prints so it's nice to be back doing my 1st love! I aim to make some pictures of a city and just everyday life as concept art work for my animation next year and for a exabition i hope to do along side a screening of my animation. Here is the beginnings of the 1st print in the series, for now lets call it "the 16 is like a secound home" (Working tile)

This is how it began life as a picture of an empty 16 bus. Btw an empty 16 bus is rather rare! i Caught it at 5:30am in an attempt to get an empty was packed! madness! so i ended up stay ing on the bus till near the end of the route. The things i do!

Objects say A LOT about a person

I am one of those weird people that love to collect things. The sort of things i love to collect are generally little bits of pop culture :)

Here are my small air fix Nazi army. They are so iconic! and if they miss behae i can just stamp on them! I picked them up in a charity shop, a box of maybe 300 soldiers for £3 :O bargain and a HALF!
Here is a magic crocodile that can swim through any surface an 11 birthday prez of my nan! she had good taste it's awesome!
Yes i know exactly what your thinking.............THATS FREAKING BAD ASS! I know i know. It has loads of little compartments for storm troopers it even takes a snow speeder :)
but alas i feel a little silly for buying this.........cost me £85 :/ oh well it looks friggin cool in my room! This is something that shows a lot about me: Obviously it lets you know i'm a sci-fi geek, that i dream of space travel and far off lands, that i dont particularly wanna grow up!, that i like building things and that im slightly careless with money and maybe have a slightly disposable income.
Hay R2 :)
this pen is nice :) but not as nice as the instruction of how to refill it :) arn't beautiful. They are like a finely crafted comic!
Here is the finest of all my nick naks. YES this is a note written by a year 7 appologising for taking the mik out of my shoes. The little prick was shouting absurdities at me in the corridor. Unfortunately u are now longer to give kids a slap. so i dragged him to his head of year and was like sort him out. Later in the day he turns up in my art class with this note. I nearly wet myself!!!!! :) Bring back the cain i say! Respect has gone to the wall in schools. It needs an over hall!

To boldly go where no man has gone before!

Thankyou emma for this belated birthday present :) it has been decided that this will in some way feature in this animation! I think the main character may have him on his bed side table as a reminder he should "live long and prosper" FUCK IM COOL!

some pre production work (oldish work)

(click me i'll go big)
Man the only thing i hate bout blogging is just how thin blogs are..... anyway this is a piece i did on foundation titled "yes boss." the actually prints about 4m long hopefully il print it off if i do an exabition this year. This is what i want the animation to look like. A mix of bold characters and photographs.

Starter ideas.

When i was 18 i had a job at the best starbucks in birmingham whilst working there i picked up loads of great storys. Things that happened to me and my colleges. Sex, scandel, lies, love, friendship and frapachinos. So i have decided to loosely base a story on the time i worked there.
The drawing above is taken from a biographical comic i have been writing. It's a picture of me being that dick at a fancy dress party who didn't dress up. This is the style im deffo guna work in. Using stickmen for crowds and anyone that isn't an integral character. I feel it makes it more engaging as it means the stick people are blank canvas and by giving them simple objects or poses can suggest the sort of person they are but not set it in stone. Also having them so blank makes it so they can be anyone. Meaning they can represent all the people we come in to contact on a daily basis but pay little or no attention to as we dont know them.
