Some times, clients ask me to do animated gifs or illustrations or little animated videos for them to send out as holiday greetings. Sadly they never ask for them in August so it's always a big rush in November/December to get them finished in time. Still, despite the tight deadlines and modest budgets i think they turned out half decent. :) Also here's a link for the video of CSMLS holiday greeting. It was fun to do because even though it's a simple character it was full animation. cheers and Happy New Year!

Recently when i was upgrading some software I use to animate with, the folks at Toon Boom asked what is was working on at the time and if they could do a little interview with me about how i use TB Harmony in that project. That's pretty flattering to be asked.
Here is the link to the article: Toon Boom link
I was hoping they would include more of the finished art and some animation and not just the really rough sketches but I'm not complaining. It was very nice to be interviewed and it's a software i actually do enjoy using so It's pretty cool to be included on their site. I've included some more concept art below. You can see how the style evolved from the almost stick figure stuff to the finished look that ended up as animation in the series. These seals are pretty close to the final design. Over all it was a fun project ot work on and i was really happy with how it turned out.
If you are interested in seeing the program that features the animation it's called "Explore More" and it is currently airing on TVO.
Howdy folks and happy Easter and pass-over to you. I've just update the Frog Feet website as it needed a bit of a tidy up. It's nothing fancy but I think it does the trick showcasing the animation, illustrations, design work, concept art and other cartoon goodness we've been producing here in Toronto.
My spring resolution is to post more art and sketches more frequently both to highlight stuff we are working on as well as to just share sketches and cartoons i think are fun.
Hope you enjoy it. I have some zombie art and some concept art for a documentary i recently finished creating animation for. I hope to share it with you all soon.
Happy Chocolate bunny day! cheers!
