Comicon, new vinyl, postcards

I've been very busy the last couple of days, yesterday I went to the MCM comicon expo in London which was... interesting to say the least! I'm not a big fan of cosplay but we did have alot of 'oh my god look it's _____!' moments bursting out from our nerdy younger selves. Again i've never been massively into comics though obviously I can appreciate the design and characters, but there was some really, really awesome stuff around!
Particularly Richard Starkings and co. who were really top guys. They gave us a free issue and a signed sketch! Apparantly the comic is about to be made into a major motion picture, so throw a google search their way!

In other news I bought myself a couple more blank toys, I can't wait to get started on these! Keep your eyes peeled for a giveaway of some sort!

I  also picked up a couple things at 60% off from the Kidrobot sale that many people missed out on,
My first Kozik Smorkin Labbit (10'') and a kid robot dealy also by Kozik!
 I think this is my favourite dunny to date, it's an Amanda Visell from the 2010 series!

That's all for today but there's alot to come- the summer has just begun and I am as motivated as ever!

Artrage sketch
Another quick sketch, I don't really intend to use any of these, just firing them out and trying some new things


I am really pushing these free postcards, I have no idea how long i'll be doing this so if you haven't already, click the postcards tab above and check it out!
I've finally finished my first year at university! It went so unbelievably quick, so I'm not going to waste any time this summer.
You can expect;
More postcards,
Some possible T-shirt designs for Stay dead clothing
Pre-production for my 2nd year film
more custom munnys
and loads of things I haven't even conceived yet!

Sneak peak

Here's a little bit of unfinished animation from the project me and a friend are working on!
It is for a slovenian film (so all the voices are slovenian), and I can't wait to see it!
I'll upload a video file once it's done, but for now you can just click here to see the .swf!

Zoo Times, DUNNYS!

I went to London Zoo on saturday, and saw my good friend Jamie from the isle o' man, which was good (considering we both live so close together and have barely made an effort before)
We got some strange looks in the petting zoo, probably because the main demographic was 4 year old girls
Petting Zoo
And we also saw more than enough monkey masturbation.. it's not as funny as it sounds after 20 minutes!
(Though we did catch a bird going poopy on another ones head)
Cheeky Monkeys

In other news I have far too many dunnys now (all for dirt cheap/next to nothing!)
and just today Kidrobot had a 60% off deal so I treated myself to a late birthday present (thanks to my sister for the cash! :-))

My college friend Jade is also working on a little custom owl plush for me in exchange for a couple spare dunnys :-) (Kinda like the one pictured here)
Plush Owl

What am I up to now? Working towards my final deadline on the 24th, I also have a personal animation project for my friends brother, who is studying film in Slovenia :)
Looking forward to the summer, and hopefully big things to come!!

Burgered part 2

I am dying from lack of sleep (can that actually happen? or do you just eventually pass out) so I'm going to keep this short and sweet!!
In between deadlines I burgered Jon Burgerman, just to return the favour :)

All nighter, Gots me Burgered

So after an all nighter preparing for two deadlines it really cheered me up to see that Jon Burgerman had sketched a terrible photo of me haha

How awesome is that?
I can't sleep now though, not by choice, but because I finished a little earlier than I anticipated and now I can't hand my work in for 4 hours..
If I sleep I know I wont wake up, this really is some sick kind of purgatory!
It's my birthday on thursday, and summer is on the way! So I really hope to fill this blog with all kinds of personal projects..
Ok it's not likely, I'm a lazy bastard!
