Powwow Launch


Phew! Powwow's new site is up and running. Well that was a fun few months. But its all about to come to an end, and now the real work can begin. Liftoff is upon us, and with it a chance to talk to the world about our plans and adventures.  Thanks to everyone to for their support and helping hands, and also to the guys that contributed animation, editing, layouts and moral support. There are Powwow T-Shirts, cardboard cut-outs and a 7  foot tall captain Fred in the room below me. Man I'm I looking forward to this.

Music


We've just received the ShipAntics theme tune and Otto and Amanda reckon it'll be their first number one. But they're only releasing it on vinyl made from dried seaweed. The B side is a re-mix by DJ Derek the Prawn, having just figured out how to use the auto-tune function on his laptop.  (seriously, they can't wait to share the new tune with you guys, its really rather good. )

New Poster

Here's our poster with a few tweaks and changes. I hope it captures the insanity and style of humour that the show will have, and that you get a sense of the world and the awesome places you can explore.
Here is a show that I am animating upon. I do enjoy animating the Ninja, as he is mostly black, and rarely sits still for long. This means you get to experiment a bit, with blurs and cool poses. Also, it stars John Ralphio from Parks and Recreation.

Cowboys in the hood

Just a quick sketch for a new idea about a bunch of crusty cowboys and rustlers who  head to Hollywood and become huge style icons,  eventually finding themselves as the most famous stars on the planet. But will they listen to their hearts and return to the ranch or will the highlife and success go to their heads ?

Been quiet around here.

The World OF Shipantics - We are the Sea Dogs!

Ive been trying to create a poster for Shipantics lately, but as the world keeps expanding - I keep having to start again. I'm currently working on a trans-media bible that will work for a film, TV or game and that means the whole " Universe " of the concept has to be nailed down. Great craic so it is.
