British Heart Foundation

My latest motion graphics work for the British Heart Foundation. Directed by Miki Cash at Wonky Films. 





Doing this project about 'No Smoking Day' was brilliant as it knocked some sense into me and got me to stop smoking. :)

Dreamscape

This dreamscape started as a pencil drawing which I then inked and scanned into photoshop CS6 to tinker with.

I recently made a VFX heavy video with After Effects for Nu Desine. A great way to start 2013!

This was the pencil and inking stage:

Cellist - Oil painting

An oldie but a goodie. 
One of my favourite paintings I did a while ago.


Fairies and Cherubs



Corel Photo Paint


Around 1999 - 2000 a friend at college introduced me to Corel Photo Paint 5. 
At first I scoffed at the idea of using computers with my artwork, but the more I experimented with the software the more I found it a liberating experience.
I no longer had to worry about making mistakes and could purely focus on making pictures I thought looked awesome.

So as soon as I got my head around it, overwhelming urge to do a bunch of light sabres..



and heat vision, and ufos..
