Alphabuddies completed

While I’m at it, here is the Alphabuddies short that I animated a few years ago, completed.  I’d love to find a way to make 26 of these… one starring each letter.  If anyone knows anyone with some funding, let me know!

My wife, Rochelle came up with these characters for a book that she’s working on.  This is part of a pitch to try to get these little guys animated.  The voices are by my daughter Avery and my nieces Anika and Raina, years ago, when they were tiny.

First scene animated! (work in progress)

The slow process of animating has begun!  Here’s a rough test of one of the scenes for my short Possum film.  This is a second pass in blue pencil.  I’ll do this pass and make a list of things to fix in the animation when I go over the drawings in pencil and try to make them more appealing.  Once I’m happy with the animation, I’ll put a new sheet of paper over each of the drawings and clean them up with a nice clean pencil line.

This is a scene, just before he gets hit in the head by a garbage can!

Just Like on the Farm

The kids are getting old enough to be put to work!


My daughter Avery (just turned 10) colouring while I have a coffee.

(No seriously…  My son (7) and daughter (10) coloured a good chunk of this for me)  I knew they’d pay off.

Over Worked and Under Paid

Here’s a sneak peek at something I’ve been working on for the 2012 SPACE Anthology.  I’m a little late getting it in, but hopefully I’ll still make the final, final deadline.  The PossumThis will be a 3 page stand alone, Possum Short.  I haven’t forgotten about issue #6 though, so don’t worry.  My hopes are still to have issue #6 finished for later this summer, but at the moment I’m not promising anything, as I’m barely keeping my head above water with story boarding, teaching, and being a chauffeur to 3 hockey playing kids.

I’ll let you know how this turns out when I finish it (just a taste though, because you’ve got to get the SPACE anthology if you want to see the whole thing….. at least for now).
