The Casebook of Nips & Porkington: It Moves!


Oh forgot to mention there's a tumblr film blog:
http://nipsandporkington.tumblr.com/


Probably the smarter thing would have been to make a model sheet but I just used the better-looking board drawings instead. Now I have to make things up while I animate.


Some of my favourite frames that you'll feel but never see!


And finally this, because it looks kind of exciting:

AAAH 4th Year Film Project...

Presenting "The Casebook of NIPS & PORKINGTON", the 2-minute film-extraordinaire! Yes I've animated a whopping 4 seconds of those 2 minutes so far.
Some concept stuff and life drawing-influenced doodles. I'm collaborating with a talented UofT music student for the score but still need to find me some voice actors.

L.A... I miss your dry heat

Some cacti! I was fortunate enough to intern at 6 POINT HARNESS this summer and IT WAS SO GREAT!!! I worked at a wonderful studio AND got paid for it AND spent every weekend and many evenings becoming a bonafide foodie and exploring the humungous-you-really-need-a-bloody-car-city of Los Angeles.

Contessa makes a friend

Something for life drawing class!
I meant to colour it but... fell asleep and never worked on it again.

Mice in a Submarine

One of my 4th year pitches involves two mice in a submarine who explore pipes and waterways before getting sucked into a public outdoor swimming pool where they are terrorized by fat sunbathers and obnoxious children... ending tbd.

mi casa

This is what my house looks like! Except not surrounded by lots of other houses. And I don't have a car.

Metamorphosis

Life drawing assignment! The cover of my favorite animal encyclopedia is a closeup of this mandrill's face. They are ridiculous.

Y3 Life Drawing: Some heroes and villains

Wah so many things to upload... There used to be a giant spider in the back, but I rushed the composition so it was no good and cropped the whole thing.

FX13

It's wk. 8 of school which makes this material... 10 weeks old (whoops!)

Rounded up the summer with four days of FanExpo again and had a pretty good time playing with magnets, tictacs, and cash. We jumped into this art contest because they offered free pencils... but then we didn't win and they got to keep the art...


 I did a commission for a different cat-lover also called Nancy:

And my unfaltering love for Harry Potter:

WINGFOLK: birdshit!




I always wanted to print a book!

But it needed a theme... so I went with BIRDS. Spent a good part of Jul/Aug drawing various beaky things and used FanExpo again as a deadline for yet another mini venture.

There are bits of everything... doodles from the ROM, some rendering, some graphic design:
