In short, I've graduated university and recently started working at Sony London as a freelance concept artist. In long, it's been 3 years of working very hard with a group of very talented people who still motivate me to keep painting, animating, and improving. Together with two close friends, we made a film called 'The Catch', and it was the most fun I've ever had, along with some darker times nearing the deadline hah... We'll hopefully make some more cool/ lame stuff in the future
I haven't had much time to work on personal things so I don't have a lot to post, but I'm getting the hang of balancing my life with work so I'll be working and posting as often as possible. To all fellow artists, animators, and engineers; keep doing what you love and push yourself to be better than you were yesterday. It's easy (and tempting) to brand yourself with a style early on, but mess around and have fun to find out new ways of creating. A style will come on its own from your own personal habits and preferences. It makes the real world not seem so tough when you practice something you love every day.
Hello! I've just done my first week at an animation studio. I was supposed to be a runner, but I asked if they could test me out with some work, and now I'm a key-framer! ^^ We're making a children's cartoon that's a bit like Winnie the Pooh and it'll be released sometime at the end of next year. Everyone who works here is very cool and talented and my university lecturers are working there too which was a nice surprise :) There are boards full of artwork and Cintiq tablets everywhere it's like a dream come true ha. Sorry I haven't been active; I love drawing my own stuff a lot, so whenever I don't post work it's because life gets in the way which is always annoying lol. So, yeah I'm super excited and can't wait to get back on Monday. I'll ask if I can get some work up to show you guys, it's a lovely cartoon :)
I hope you are all managing to chill out this weekend, I'm going back to bed now...
Peace from a panda!
