A Project From the Past

I keep playing with old drawings because of my constant need to experiment with images. Yesterday, while going through my portfolio, I pulled out a couple of drawings from a little story I wrote way back in the early nineteen nineties for a video class at Emily Carr College of Art And Design. It was a short story with images drawn very quickly with coloured pencils to meet a deadline for class. I finished the story but I never finished the final video. I made a promise to the instructor that I would finish it but I never followed through and it has haunted me for years. Now, with the technology at my finger tips, I think I might give it another try just to see if I can do something with it in video form.
These are two dusty old pencil crayon drawings scanned into Corel Painter11 and 'painted' over with the pastel brushes with my little Wacom Bamboo Tablet and my little plastic tipped pen. I do love technology. But I must get my portfolio together and I must stop experimenting. Oh my.

Simon's Cat in 'The Box'

A friend on Facebook noted this animation today and I think it is brilliant. Cat lovers everywhere will laugh and relate. Simon the animator certainly knows his cats.
He has a series of them. Enjoy!

Pencil Sketches to Vector Shapes

I am working up some ideas for a story board and it's been a while since the last posting here so I thought I would share this.

Pencil sketches scanned into CorelDRAW and then turned into vector shapes.
