Kelly Bounce Rough

Apparently that's how she likes it. For those of you who remember this

Colleagues Pillow Fight

Some girls I work with were talking about moving in together, this is how I imagine they're evenings would have been spent.

Token Xmas Song

Done in a couple of weeks alongside fulltime work for very little money in 2005 (look at me getting my excuses in), despite being able to clearly see everything that's wrong with this I still quite like it.

So the desks at Google have a CD case with your name and job title printed on the sleeve. So far so whatever. Unfortunately it is in the hated COMIC SANS!

So I thought, well that's rubbish, and I'd been playing with the idea of turning my job title (Visualiser, check it out!) into a type of X-Men superhero for a while, et voilá: THE VISUALISER!!

Regular readers may recognise an early incarnation if the Ice-Man.

Other people thought it was a good idea and I ended up doing a few more. Here they are:

Student Fancy Dress Characters

Characters for a game where a bunch of students are trying to sneak home without being seen after staying out all night at a fancy dress party.

7 songs for Brian

So, 7 songs I'm into now. Not my 7 favourite songs, that's not what I really take this to be about. Songs that I've found drifting through my head, unbidden, recently.

Modest Mouse - Float On

What can you say? Future classic, will be on radio playlists for years and years and everytime it's played people will go, "Oh, I really love this song, who's it by?" and no one will know.

Radiohead - Karma Police

Standing in Victoria Park on a lovely sunny summer evening with, what, 40 000 people quietly singing "This is what you get, this is what you get, this is what you get when you mess with us," to that nursery rhyme melody is a genuinely spooky experience that will stay with me for a long while.

Cherry Ghost - People Help the People

My Grandma died in Autumn last year, about the time I was listening this album to death on my MP3 player. On the train home from work a couple of days after she died, I was in floods of tears listening to this song.

Sara Bareilles - Love Song

Listen to Capital FM in the car when the missus is driving otherwise might not have come across this one. Quality pop music.

Ryan Adams - Halloweenhead

Ryan doing his best Neil Young impression. Proof that lyrics don't really matter all that much.

The Fray - Hips Don't Lie

Scrub through to about 1:00 minute in. Now I like the original but this is brilliant.

Kelly Brook Trampoline Game

You got to pop her ballons without, ahem, popping her balloons.

Cometh the hour..Official RBS 6 Nations Drop Kick Game

Becoming something of a speciality it seems, rugby games. Thanks to some fantastic work by the other designers and developers and a bit of courage and belief by the people writing the cheques the game has turned out uncannily similar to what I woke up thinking about at 5 O'clock in the morning the day after I was first given the brief. In practically all cases where things have changed they have done so for the better.
Couldn't be more chuffed.
If you can figure out how to catch the ball without being given a hint then you're doing well. If you can get anywhere near the top of the leaderboard then you're a far better man than I. I've never been good at games I've worked on but some of these guys, Welsh mainly it seems, are posting scores that we never thought would be feasable.
Good luck!

Two minute poses

10 minute pose (I think)
20 minute poses

Much happier with these than the first of the year last week, though the proportions might be a little off, especially the heads. Trying to find a good balance between line-drawing and tone and not pulling it off. Might have to go for a higher B pencil.
