behind the scenes

  • #Selfie

    As construction material, I really like cardboard. From time to time I get the drive to immediately start tinkering around with it. Yesterday I constructed this gigantic mask and a huge smartphone as props for a selfie. Can’t wait to think of other ways to put them to use.

  • Frame by Frame

    Guys, I’ve rediscovered Photoshop’s animation tool. Now, using video layers and onion-skinning is way more confortable to animate frame by frame. 
I’m not really sure what it’s gonna be in the end, but from time to time it’s fun drawing some weird objects and making them come alive.

  • Books for Inspirational Purposes

    I’ve bought some books for inspirational purposes. I highly recommend both of them.

    1.) The Animator’s Survival Kit – by Richard Williams

    Wow, everything you need to know about walk-cycles and character movement itself.
    Hopefully, I’ll find the time to experiment a little during the upcoming holidays. Although I don‘t think I’ll ever really master this unique type of art.

    2.) Cartoon Modern – by Amid Amid

    This one is about style and design in fifties animation. Man, I love these artsy-fartsy cartoon drawings from back in the days.

  • Brand New Website

    After months of busy work in my spare-time, my brand new website is finally online. It’s wider, greener, more comfortable to manage and responsive. Let’s go to the next level of mobile future.

  • Flying Fries

    Yay! I’m very proud to be working with the great guys at Thauma Stuttgart once again. I can’t reveal too much at this point, but right now we’re working on the first concept studies for a new Panasonic project. Huh? What could this be? Flying fries maybe?
