I'd never seen a tribal dude in a space suit. So I drew a tribal dude in a space suit
Deeear diary!So here I am. I have moved country and I'll be starting at Soap Creative on Monday... simple =)Life can be a hell of a thing, it's crazy what can happen all at the same time - I would have to say that is my own fault, but chewing what I (and my wife - it's her fault too) bite off has always been important to me.I am definitely in the camp of thinking (and acting on) that the more difficult and challenging something is, the better you become because of it. I've handled some life before, but holy shit is this the biggest and baddest bite of life yet. I'm excited about seeing what comes of this one. phewblah blahblahblahblahSo WOAH I'm in Sydney and starting at Soap Creative on Monday and will be pushing myself as hard as I have always wanted to and I'm excited about that and the peeps there are rad which is just a catalyst for good shit and my wife is all good and she is mad chewing right now as well and she will be rad when she comes over here too and shit is super super crazy, but it's all good!Gad damn.Come at me, life.
Uh oh, I think this is art for art's sake...
There is actually some significance to this picture for me. It is a combination of a couple of things that I hold high. I admire quiet, under-celebrated achievers. This picture is based off a photo I found years ago of an old guy weaving a basket and he just seemed so fine about doing it - just getting on with it. And he's probably really really good at it.
The other part of the picture (the donut) is influenced by a favourite musician of mine, J Dilla. There is a whole lot to be said about this guy - so I won't. But he was also a very hard worker, extremely good at what he did, everyone knew it and yet he was completely humble and quiet about it. He made a very fucking noteworthy (to say the least) album called 'Donuts'. And along with his other music too, it gives me feels.
third part is I thought it made a cool pic
fourth part is I like me' headphones =)
Playing with and figuring out some more ideas and techniques for how to make 'rough-painted' animations. And showing some ED-E love =)
This is a combo of Photoshop, AfterEffects and Flash.
