Yes, here is the answer to the question that literally millions of you had no intention of asking!


I recently submitted my graduate film to Newgrounds - where it achieved the Daily Feature, and then won 3rd on the Weekly awards! That's my highest ever achievement on the Newgrounds rankings, not just with original projects but in total, with a whopping 4.36 as the current score. (The score is out of 5, and above 3.8 is bitch-difficult to get.) So yeh, that's had me buzzing for a few days!

And on top of that, it got featured on, an animation networking and showcase site based here in Bristol.

Speaking of that website...


I took part in Show Me The Animation's "Do it in Ten" competition - where every month there's a different theme, and the challenge is to make something 10 seconds long to respond to that theme. This month's theme was "Late", so I made my entry about last month's theme, and it went ahead and won! Success!


So since my internship ended, I've been looking for work and working on applying for Job Seeker's Allowance, a form of social security payment here in the UK. There may be no more need for that, because today I had a job interview with an advertising/sales company based in Bristol City Centre, and that seemed to have gone pretty damn well. It's face-to-face marketing, so I'll be going into the offices of other businesses, holding stalls at events, little bit of mall stand type stuff, among other things. And even if that falls through, there's another interview Monday just after noon that I can go to.

But all that's being overshadowed right now because of...


I'm still nailing down the details, and I don't consider this a done deal until I have it in writing from them how much they intend to pay me (I have an implied amount from what they've said so far, but nothing I could use to demand payment in court should they refuse to follow through on their end of the bargain), but it's looking like I may have a proper animation commission to do next week. It's a motion-graphic-y type thing and it'll only be a minute long, but it's a real proper commission and I'm super psyched to get it done.

On a more sombre not...


So we're finally not calling refugees "migrants" anymore, which is a great step forward (shame it took a child dying to make it so), but right now lots of people are wondering how they can help stop it happening again. The relief effort I feel has the most direct impact in stopping people dying at sea is MOAS - the "Migrant Offshore Aid Station", which is basically a boat that goes out and rescues people from the smaller dodgy boats floating out on the Mediterranean. And right now, they are crowdfunding to buy a second boat so that they can literally double their efforts. I've chucked in $30, and I think that if you're able to you should as well (doesn't have to be $30, just whatever you can afford). If not, please share this around so that it reaches more people. At the current rate of donations, it won't even reach 10% of it's goal, so if you can help - whether by donating or sharing - please do.

Hi, I'm an animator/cartoonist, recently graduated the Bristol School of Animation, who also does comics in his spare time. Anyway, you're probably already bored and have stopped reading, so here's more completely uninteresting things about me:
- I live in a house.
- I am tall.
- I have a cat called Pillz.
- That's the way, aha, aha, I like it, aha, aha
- I have a digital watch.
- I skipped number 6.
- You just checked to see if I had, even though I'm using dashes and not numbers.
- Several of these facts aren't actually about me.
