me + you – original music

I was having a rummage through my Hard Drive the other day and I stumbled upon what was the very beginnings of the music for my animation me + you –. Listening to it brought back loads of memories, I remember being really into resonance and distortion at the time and spent hours messing around with my keyboard to get the sound right. Hours wasted really as I ended up using a completely different synth and song.

But anyway, if your interested click play to have a listen. Also, if you haven’t already, you can buy a “me + you – cutout toy” from my shop.

Comic update

It’s still going. The story’s starting to get bigger and bigger, and I don’t have a clue how it’ll end, but I’m really enjoying it. I do sort of think this would make a nice animation though. Maybe someone will give me loads of money to turn this into an epic animation and graphic novel…

Tate Modern

I went to the Animate TV screening at the Starr Auditorium at Tate Modern on Friday night. Once again gain we had a Q&A afterwards with the six other artists and Ian White. My family and friends came along and it felt like a really nice conclusion to what was a year of hard, but fun, work.

FACT

Just got back from Liverpool were there was a screening of the Animate TV films at FACT. The screening was really good, there were lovely comfy sofas in the screen and there was some interesting discussion during the Q&A afterwards. Liverpool was fun too, it was my first time there so like a shameless tourist I made a trip to the Beatles Story museum!

The next screening is next Friday at Tate Modern.

Blade Runner

Thanks to CrossOver I’ve been playing the fantastic Blade Runner game on my MacBook. I played this game loads when it was released ten or so years ago and now I’m reliving it in all it’s pre-rendered beauty.
