Pumpkin Fun Times

One giant pumpkin, ready for gutting. I'm no master pumpkin gutter, so I had to collect together a bunch of crap that I thought might help to hollow this bad boy out.

I drew a rough idea of what I wanted the pumpy to look like, stereotypical Halloween pumpkin stylie.

Hollowing him out was pretty grim, he was full of slimy pumpkiny goodness and seeds, I felt like a murderer.

Minus pumpkin = sad faces!

I recently discovered FontStruct through that online revelation, twitter. I have been getting to grips with it, here are a few of my creations.

Tea animation

The 'final' piece for my stop frame animation project. I'm thinking of doing another one, concentrating more on drawing and close up macro images perhaps.

a tad more type

A couple of days ago I attempted to create my own typeface in Illustrator. It was my first real attempt at it. I have added a piece using the type to the digital section of my I have a few more quotes/type ideas for it lined up, will most likely end up on the studio wall before long.

Updated the post with something I quickly shoved together. I want to try screen printing something using this type.


These designs are part of an idea for my stop frame animation. It all centres around a polystyrene ball. 'Nuff said. More info to come as I get on with the filming and editing...

Obviously influenced by retro-wocked japanese ads/product design. I'm hoping I can incorporate some of this style into the animation itself. I'm thinking of trying to make the stop frame a kind of advertisement for a new product.

I have been testing out some ideas for the stop frame animation brief. No where near a final piece yet, but I'm getting there slowly.

the right type?

the finished article. Will probably work up a few...ALTERNATE versions of this. Looking at greek and phoenecian lettering. Who knows if anything will come of it.

This has been added to a new section of the digital element of my website - here.
