Job hunting and Comic reviews

Just an update on what's happening in my life so far. The job search has turned up nothing, either I'm not good enough or they are not hiring at the moment. Oh and my siblings Lewis and Nerissa are going back to college. This makes me feel sad. I have some drawings here. I've cleaned some of them up.
I've been reading some comics.
Finished New Frontier, it's amazing. Darwin Cooke's book is brilliant, and the artwork's incredible.
I read Spider-man, Brand New Day. It's actually some of the best Spider-man I've read in ages. Story's good and Spidey's actually funny.
Finally I read Ameile Rules. It's quite funny. I enjoyed it.
Hoping to have better luck. See ya.

Animation Station Comic

This is something a bit different I tried. It's a comic I turned into a video. It's about a group of retired cartoon characters running their own digital television network. They get into a variety of mishaps and scraps as they put on a live nightly two hour show. I did this purely to get it out of my system. If you want to read it please visit

New Showreel

Well, since my last showreel didn't get me any luck with finding a job I decided that maybe it was time to change it around a bit. Very kindly David Fortier from Pip Animation and master animator Will Finn gave a look over my reel. They both felt the old one was too scattered, and I could do a lot more with less. Listening to their suggestions, I need a lot of new stuff to add to the reel, for example more artwork and a more emotion filled piece of animation, something more akinned to what you see in features. But those will both take time, so I made up this reel using the stuff I have now. In case your wondering the Mickey Mouse and Winnie the Pooh drawings I did for a Disney Consumer Products Contest here in the U.K. Better start on the new work. Oh, the music is copyright Rare.
