I will be running a CelAction rigging course over 3 days (Wednesday 17th July to Friday 19th July) at Brighton’s Phoenix Gallery. There are Early Bird discounts available! I hope to see you there. Please see my Events page for more details.
Spring has sprung and I’ve got round to updating my site (it’s actually early summer, but I’ve been busy). I’ve put more of a focus on my work portfolio, as my kids and dog eat a great deal of food. I’ve added to my About page, made a new contact form and have added a mailing list for those who would like to be kept informed of my new work (drawings, comics, prints, animation etc). I hope you like it. Take a look around.
I’m plonking this Linkedin post here because I’m looking for more paid work. If I can eat, I can draw more stupid stuff and post it here. So, if you have a project you’d like me to work on, please do get in touch 🙂
But someone has to do it…
This is a work in progress, and mainly an exercise in getting textures and meshes at the right size for a small side project. Next step is to look into bump mapping the duck, and rigging for animation, of course. This version of the duck is relatively low poly. Below is a render with a sub surface modifier applied to the little fellow. The background textures are hand-drawn and coloured, scanned into Photoshop. They’re imported into Blender as planes. The duck is the usual combination of cubes, spheres and cylinders.
Here’s a broad selection of my freelance animation and design work on many 2D and 3D animation projects. It contains my work on Peppa Pig, Hey Duggee!, Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, Moshi Monsters, Tee and Mo, short films, mobile games and corporate videos. I hope you like it. I use all sorts of tools in my work, the main ones being:
- Adobe Flash (now known as ‘Animate’)
- Adobe After Effects
- Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator
- Unity3D and Godot
I still love Flash, even after all these years. Blender is my new favourite thing and I’d like to work on more projects with it. If you’d like me to help you with your animation project (any size or scope / as an animator, or animation designer… or both) then please get in touch:

The toucan has evolved into a blue-booted chough.
Why am I suddenly making 3d birds wearing hats? I’m updating my animation showreel, that’s why!
What am I using? Blender for the CG, pens and Photoshop for everything else.
When will it be finished? Oh crumbs, soon I hope.
After almost a year of working from my home studio, and nearly going nuts with the daily solitude followed by the chaos of kids returning home from school, I’m travelling to Brighton to work on a new TV project. I get to walk across Preston Park every morning, which is especially handsone in the cold, hard winter sun. I can’t say much about the project other than it’ll be on the BBC maybe later this year and it’s very pretty.
Happy Christmas / Festivus / Mid Winter Festival everyone. I hope and trust we enjoy a calmer 2017.
