Happy post Christmas and pre-New Years

Hey there good folks.  I hope that you all had a wonderful Holiday filled with fun, family and good cheer.  I've really enjoyed the holiday and I'm working on some new posts for the new year.  Here are some rough Santas that, for one reason or another, didn't make the cut for my santa of the day posts.   I'll be posting new content every few days so feel free to stop by, have a look, and let me know what you think.

santa of the day: day 25

Well that was fun. I really enjoyed doing a Santa-a-day for the past 25 days. I have some additional Santa concept sketches that I'll be posting later in the week. I hope that you all have the happiest of holidays and a very prosperous new year.

A brief flash of Flash

Here are two small scenes I did for George of the Jungle awhile back. Just your standard monkey attack.

Snow Angel Santa. I remember making snow angels when I was a kid. Heck! I even remember snow. Ah! Good times. Pure bliss.

Paper Craft

I take my wife to the mall photo booth every year on our anniversary (romantic I know). Last year I made paper craft versions of us for her gift, along with a paper craft photo booth, to boot. I modified the Paper Dude Template from custompapertoys to make the paper versions of my wife and I.

I then designed and created a template matching the scale and style of the figures, from which I constructed the photo booth.

I really enjoyed working on this paper craft and I will be working and posting more examples in the coming weeks.

Update: I am no longer updating this blog as I have moved to my new website cardboardtreehouse.com I'll be adding new paper craft, illustrations, animation, and other offers on the new site. Feel free to pop over and have a look around. Thanks for your interest in my work.

Some stop motion animation

Here is some animation I did on the second season of Lunar Jim while working with Halifax Film. In this episode there is a large creature that is jumping around shaking everything when it lands, causing much chaos.
