New animation: The Chase

April 30, 2015 § Leave a comment

Here’s my latest animated video for The Backhomes‘ new single “The Chase”. Inspired by the early experimental work of Robert Breer I wanted the piece to have a lo-fi analog look and feel. The choppy animation and strobe effects pair well with the driving song, and the hand drawn animated characters introduce a narrative to the otherwise abstract piece. Let me know what you think:

Everyone can animate!

I wanted to share a few of the gifs we created at the Animation Workshop I did at the AGGV last Thursday. It was an interesting evening to prepare for because I wanted to be inclusive to all skill levels, from people who don’t normally draw to those with more experience. But I also wanted to make sure we all got some hands on experience animating.unnamed-2
After discussing different techniques and how they relate to the work that I do we were ready to try our luck making an animated loop. We did so without the help of a light table, instead trusting our eyes to get stuff as uniform and lined up as possible side by side on the page. I brought a number of objects to choose from and we got to work sketching.unnamed-1
Here are some of the resulting pieces, all drawn quickly with pencil, in about an hour and a half. Most were scanned and animated on site. Animations in order by: Rosalinde, Greg, Sheila, Terry, Mariesa, Chris, Robin and me. Photos courtesy of the AGGV.

The Butcher Bar

Here are some photos of a little DIY project I just finished. My baby brother got married recently and I had to think of an amazing gift idea. He and his wife already have an embarrassing amount of my artwork on their walls so I couldn’t go that route… Then the best idea came to me: BUTCHER BAR!
