Happy CHRISTMAS 2014!

Happy Christmas to you all (please insert whatever holiday you prefer, religious, or secular) and I hope you gather with your loved ones today.

The Boxtrolls

I’ve admired the films of Laika for years, and now I’m pleased to say that I’ve been involved in one; THE BOXTROLLS.

Koala Lumpur: Mystic Marsupial

When I worked at Colossal Pictures we showed animated series ideas to TV networks every year. One of my pitches was about a marsupial magician called KOALA LUMPUR, who I saw as a tiny, mystical problem solver; a cross between Yoda and Mandrake the magician.

New Web Host

The pic is a sketch I did last year, recently coloured in photoshop. I have just found my own web host, so even though I am still a part of the Maverix Studios site, my files are hosted by www.digitalriot.org, who I can heartilly recommend.
