The Hidden Park iphone game


I've been working on this iphone GPS game called 'The Hidden Park'.
It just been released and I can finally show you all the illustrations, character designs and animations that I did to make it come to life.
If you have an iphone and a child handy, then you should get this game! Here's a link to where you can buy it.
www.thehiddenpark.com
It's $6.99 I think. Well worth it.

I'll try and get some images up here soon.

My DreamWorks dream....

One month ago I had a fantastic interview with DreamWorks Animation in LA for a Character Animator position on 'Shrek Goes Fourth'. I met with five great people. In particular two of the Heads of Animation Rex Grignon and Jason Schleifer who I really enjoyed chatting with. Wow what an awesome couple of guys! and so talented!
Unfortunately I wasn't able to get the job due to some timing issues, so I'm not moving to LA just yet. But you never know what's around the next corner :)

Winner! 11 Second Club April 08 (Oh is it already 2009?)

Even though it was one year ago. I thought I'd still post this.
In April 2008 I won the 11 Second Club animation contest with this animation of a delusional bus driver.
I got the best E-Critique from the wonderful and talented Dana Boadway. Dana you ROCK!
I really think that it improved a lot from Dana's suggestions. If you want to see the original, go to http://www.11secondclub.com/competitions/april08/winner/
