Checking in, up and out

It’s been quiet as a coffin for a while thanks entirely to my workload. Earlier I was holding off writing a new post because I expected to announce a couple of new projects, but those were delayed. Anyway, I can now post a few pics of what I’ve been working on and talk about what’s on my plate at the moment.


All the Brackenwood Character sketchbooks have been delivered to the Kickstarter backers which, even though long overdue, is a huge weight off my face. As far as the game itself, it hangs in limbo at around 85% while we desperately claw our way back to a financial position that allows us to finish it. We’re reasonably confident that this will happen in the coming few months.

Most updates are posted to the Dashkin Facebook page first, so check it out if you haven’t already.


bobsBob’s Burgers

I’ve been doing the occasional FX scene for the animated US prime time show Bob’s Burgers. It started with the mechanical shark animation, then one or two FX scenes here/there, like fire and electricity. Now it increasingly looks like I’m becoming a regular FX animator for the show. It’s fun work, the people are awesome and the episodes are hilarious. The show is created with Toon Boom Harmony so I can work directly in the scene files and deliver my FX .tpl files (Toon Boom elements) via FTP.


Clear Vision 2

Game developer Dan Erhard Olsson has been keeping me busy doing backgrounds for his mobile sniper game called Clear Vision 2 (available on Android and iOS). Here are a few of the backgrounds. I’m creating them entirely in Toon Boom Harmony and delivering to him in .png format, in some cases with layering, so characters can walk behind scene elements.

  1. Love how the ship says MORBID OBESITY

  2. In awe of your talent (imagination included)

  3. Looking forward to putting my name down for your book and course :D.

  4. Cant wait to see that Bitey game finished! Should the art books have been received by now? I know you had a load of em to mail, pretty pumped to see it.

  5. Bob’s Burgers is hysterical to me. Love the main guy’s voice acting on this and Archer.

  6. I’ve gotta admit, I almost forgot about this series. But I think it’ll thrill (or horrify?) you when I say that I’ve been a fan of Bitey and his shenanigans since I was a child. Embarrassingly enough, I still have sketchbooks from when I was a teenager, filled to bursting with creatures and scenes I imaged you’d find in a place like Brackenwood. I loved your world and everything in it. I still do.
    Now I’m only sad I wasn’t around to donate money through Kickstarter, so all I can do now is to offer you my full support and attempt to relate through words how excited I am about this. Rest assured I’ll be watching this space like a hawk now! Best of luck, and keep up the good work!

  7. good work 👍🏼
