Struttin' to some cool music!





Yeah well here is a little thing I worked on yesterday... I had been meaning to study and copy the 10X Double Bounce Walk from Flip the Frog animation tutorial that John K so generously put up on his Blog ages ago,


so I took it, studied it and now I feel a bit closer to understanding how this animation thing works...



looking at my walk though I see that Flip the Frog has more of a bounce and that I should have exagerated a little bit more the poses,maybe distortioned the form a little more... but really I wasn't ready to do that... because I am only starting to understand the mechanics if the animation.... but I will repeat this walk and apply it to whole range of characters!!! it's the best WALK there is! everybody should walk like this!

The great music is from Hawaiian Steel Guitar Classics. By Sol K. Bright.

KAFRE TEATRE


On top here is the First of my attempts to colour the poster, as you can see I went bazerk on it with colour... I thought it was too computery, so I went for a more old fashioned limited colour poster, I still don't know which one I like more though... I chose the later one because it was easier to work with, my computer couldn't hack the wight of the first, also I think if I had painted it by hand I would probably like it even more!!! anyway this computer inking and stuff, I'm not much of a fan! I'll stick to raw materials!

KAFRE TEATRE 2009

It's that time again... Kafre Teatre TIME!, but this time I have decided to try some new stuff out... The drawing above is the sketch for the poster.
So... I read in Brian Romero's Blog about inking in Adobe Illustrator, and I thought that that was kind of interesting, then John K said something about getting a job cleaning Jim Smith drawings, which I reackon are awsome!! hehehe.... so I gave it a go but because I'm a bit of computer neanderthal I cleaned them up using a pencil and a light box... yeah!?, I had a look at the people that John K was talking about and I noticed that they all had used Illustrator as well, so I thought let's give this a go, so my brother in law who's a bit of computer junky, brought me a copy of illustrator and a kind guy that I know that is a computer graphics illustrator, gave me his pen tablet thing which he didn't need, so I've been playing around with it a bit, first I did some Flash animation stuff with the pen... and now I'm having a go at inking with illustrator... I think it's looking pretty good... but it's bloody time consuming and this sitting infront of the coputer all day is driving me a bit out of my mind!

Hope you like it, I like how it's looking but like everything now a days, computer's give you the possiblity to be too much of a perfectionist and that kind of bores me, but hey it's good to learn things.



Here aree some close ups... when I finish it... I'll give you a geeze at how it turns out...





see ya!

We're............back.........heh ehe ehe

Howdy folks... well we got back last week from our European tour and we've been trying to get back to normal... but after so much running a muck it's hard to sit down and just draw...the tour turned out really good though....and... I haven't laughed so much in my life!!! hahaha!!! there are so many little stories... hehehe.. I think we all had a balst!!! It would be good to write them down and do a little comic about it, but I have mixed feeling about doing something autobiographical... dunno? we'll see...



Also here is the first big sketch I did after some quick thumbnail sketches, I changed the face. his posture too is more leaned back relaxed and not so eager leanign foward, the angle of the car is also different, any other differences.. pick them out ... there are many!



...Anyway that's the latest little thing I done (finished it this morning), Both Screwtop Detonator and Midnight Woolf are launching our respective records on the 6th of December at The Tote Hotel, Melbourne. Both CD's are put out through Off the Hip, Midnight Woolf also have vinyl which we put out ourselves, it's beautifull!
Here is a photo that our friend Pat the Headsucker has taken of his beautifull copy, he is a happy man!! why not get yourself a copy today!!

Skate!!!!


About a week ago I received from skatepaige.com an uncut, no holes blank skateboard... it was quick easy and real good. so I got my jigsaw out and traced an old Natas Kaupas I have which is dear to my heart and then I added a bit of extra nose... now I'm painting it and it should be ready to be ridden this week!! can't wait.

Are You Cockeyed?

Here is a the new cover for the Sydney based band The Dunhill Blues, Good funny guys!!! I had a real blast doing this one 'cos our stupid humor clicked real good and their idea suited me to a tea, it's not always like that..so enjoy... the record should be out soon... look out for it!!


Here is an illustration I did for some party goers here in Melbourne, thay are organizing some gigs around town with the name El Trasho Loco, Midnight Woolf are keen to play there but the gods would not let it be so... we have to wait for a couple of months before we get back in the saddle and ride where our spirits can be free!!!!!

Last night at the GB (Great Brittain Hotel) in Richmond, Melbourne, Toby from The Hotel Wrecking City Traders came to see us play, we all a had a ball and laughed a lot, Toby gave me a copy of their brand new spanking DVD, with four Psyched out Experimental Dark as Hell songs recorded and filmed live at the East Brunswick Hotel. This is the illustration I did for them Last year some time I can't remember, but... Yeah they have used it for the cover of the DVD... so have a look out for it!
