But this new one below is just amazing! Thanks to Jean-Denis Haas over at Spungella for posting!

You Animator

So this is probably not new news to most but I just found this site YouAnimator and love it. It looks like a great resource for animators to get their stuff out there as well as view other animators demo reels! And if you're a reel junkie like me the you're going to love this site too :P

Setting up an account.........Now!

Moonbot studios iPad book!

Saw The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr.Morris Lessmore app/book for the iPad a little while back but forgot to post about it.


What a great idea! This looks like a lot of great art went into the making of it. Another way to share art has been born in moving and interactive stories. Check out the video tour as well!

The folks over at Moonbot have also posted a video tour of their workspace. Looks pretty awesome to me!

8 Bit Strange!

Found this site while at work today. If anyone has known about this then why haven't You shared!? This is some really fun and stylistic looking stuff! It's very simple but hugely entertaining. Looks like it's 8 separate artists that work on these although I could be wrong. Have a look for yourself

Awesome Drawing Tool!

So I was perusing the interwebs a little while at work today and came across This nifty life drawing 30 second animal thingy while over at Bill Robinsons site. Basically you select what you want to draw, how long you want to draw it and if you want the skeleton included! Badass! Careful though, it does have both nude male and female models. Not exactly work friendly.

Thanks for sharing Bill!

Off to New York for the weekend!

So I'm sitting here at Pearson airport in Toronto and came waaaaaay too early for my flight. I've got about two and a half hours left until I hit the tarmac. So I figured what a great opportunity to use some free airport wifi and post to my site!

So here is a splash page made entirely on my iPad for my next assignment.

The idea is that there is an old man on his way to visit an old time friend. While waiting at the bus stop he doesn't realize that Death is standing right next to him. Hilarity to ensue!
