Attack of the Body Armour

John P and I collaborated on these designs for an idea he had for a game. Obviously the inspiration was 'Iron Man' ( this was before the movie thing).

We would sit down together at lunch time and just hammer them out in Photoshop. Having him there while I drew meant that we could easily change things 'on the fly'.

I really like the process of trying to make someones 'mind's-eye' vision a reality, at least on paper.....or screen.

Climate Change Documentary

A couple of shots from a Documentary dealing with local effects of climate change. The show ended up airing on Channel 9. The concept with the dead dinosaur is that climate has played a role in mass extinctions in the past.

It is predicted that the Great Barrier Reef could completely die off if coastal waters continue to warm. The coral etc. was created using Paint Effects in Maya comped over real reef footage.

The Joy of Sox

...more from the Oddsox design archive......Hiroshi...based on a Japanese wooden doll.

Grunt...sort of a 'commando' sock. I think we had to abandon him as it was felt that he wasn't a particularly good role model for little kids. The producers even had 'Vietnam-style' back story for the little guy.

Happy New Year!

2009. Being in a festive and optimistic mood, I thought I would start the new year with a mass extinction....courtesy of an animation I did for the Dinos on Ice project. Happy Holidays!
