My Super Saiyan gif goes viral for the second time, declared by Josh Levin of Slate mag as “The greatest gif in the history of gifs”. Also, my book, coming in Sept 2014.
Whether you use Animate, Animate Pro or Harmony, my upcoming Toon Boom book will get you started. It’s called “Animate to Harmony: The Independent Animator’s Guide to Toon Boom”.
The release of Toon Boom Harmony 10.3 brings amazing new blur and turbulent noise effects.
Ever get that thing where your finances don’t reflect how busy you are? Like somehow the money doesn’t seem to justify working your eyes to the bone? Yeah me too. Story of the independent professional in the 21st Century huh? It’s a good thing I love what I’m doing, for the most part. Here’s ►►
The intro cinematic I made for EA2D’s Dragon Age: Legends, now owned by Bioware.
I was recently given an opportunity by Wizards of the Coast to come up with my own ideas for a DnD-themed webcomic. I’m not sure exactly what their plans are for this new section but it appears they’re simply getting a bunch of artists together and gauging which makes an impact. Here is the full ►►
My second music video, which I wrote and animated for Cilla Jane’s song “Into the Woods”.
There’s a good reason I haven’t updated in 2 months. Dashkin has now got a sponsor and I’ve been holding off on making the announcement until contracts are finalised. However, as these things go, we’ve been held up and I won’t be making the official announcement just yet. So rather than stay quiet until I ►►

At the end of last year I completed some illustration work for Dungeons & Dragons’ latest ‘The Player’s Strategy Guide‘. As it’s been published now, I’m allowed to show the stuff I did for it. The book is full of incredible work by other artists too, so it’s a huge honour to be sharing page ►►

D&D Cartoon #6 – DMG2: The Lady of Pain
This was another attempt to make something from start to finish in a single day, but it ended up taking two. It’s also the first time I used ToonBoom instead of Flash for a personal work. I used Animate Pro 2 which, back then (early 2009), was known as Digital Pro. The response to this ►►
