Crazy Busy...

A couple of months ago when I made the move to cut back my Toy Industry work to part time so that I could focus on growing my freelance business, I kinda thought it'd be a slow transition that involved me twiddling my thumbs a bit till the work came.

Boy was I mistaken. Its been crazy busy, but also exciting. Its exposed me to work involved in both the Animation and Video Game industries and provided me with whole new experiences. Its nice to be learning new skills.

The downside tho, is that I've had no time for anypersonal projects but hey, when the work's there you've gotta take it! This little rat sketch is the first bit of sketching I managed for myself in a little while. Scribbled it up last nite - obviously still seeing the carry over of the Tim Burton influence.

Tim Burton Exhibition

Went and saw the Tim Burton exhibition at ACMI on the weekend.
Fantastic! Absolutely loved it! I never realised he had such an extensive body of artwork. Was really inspiring. I loved seeing how he has carried his personal style through his art over the years and managed to evolve it.
I reckon any Tim Burton fan gets along to see this.
The exhibition has inspired me to do this little character concept with some very distinct Tim Burton influences.
