FTG Logo Animation

 So I animated a logo...

...Using Photoshop frames

No luck with GIFs so here's youtube upload. 

Here's the final logo, I actually worked backwards,
animating the little people running out and then 
played in reverse.
Looks okay though, it worked. Each character was given the illusion of speed by adding a blur. I enjoyed this a lot but really need to get my hands on After Effects or some other animation package.

Massive thanks to Liz for hiring and to Frenkel Topping Group.

Starburst Magazine #479

 With halloween quickly aproaching, we are reminded of the blah blah blah... intro platitude. 

I was hired to create the cover of Manchester's very own Starburst Magazine. Several years ago I made four covers back-to-back and now I have returned to this lovely publication.

Well, I say lovely. The theme of this particular cover is horror. Featuring a host of horror icons, this cover was as much about layout trickery as drawing because the characters are all crammed in tighter than a mall full of zombies.

Bruce Campbell, synonymous with cult,
horror; Evil Dead, practically a shoe-in.

And the final cover with adjustments

Alien, Dracula (Christopher Lee), Buffy, Eleven (Stranger Things) and The Creature from the Black Lagoon are all strutting their stuff, but if Texas Chainsaw Massacre-ing isn't your thing, order the magazine anyway. It's full of reviews, articles and all sorts. Stay in the loop with Starburst, order yours today!! 

Reel Britannia

I illustrated a couple of episodes of "Reel Britannia" currently screening on Britbox; about the British film industry, featuring the likes of director Bruce Robinson (Withnail and I).
