The return of Domestic Cowboy?

Would you believe its been about 2 years since the last Domestic Cowboy? Surprise!! I may redraw the lady in this comic because she looks weird.

Below are some paintings I did that were auctioned off at some church-type event. Alot of paint was used on the the painting of the girl. This was because I kept wreaking and trying to fix it.

It's probably obvious, but the painting below was a very cool series of accidents.

Recent Arting

Katie and I are getting married! Yay! These are some drawings from our wedding invitations. Above became a sticker for the back of the envelope. It also had the return address on them. Below is a picture for a little insert containing useful information.

I've also been dabbling in the art of painting. Here was my first painting, and so far my only complete painting. I was not happy with the line quality.

And finally, my notes from POLS2703 - Principles of Research. I'm thinking of doing it up and submitting it to threadless. Thoughts?

He's meant to be saying: "I'm not feeling well... Feeling gross".

And another random drawing I did.

From the archives

I just noticed that I have never put this up on my blog. This is the first 'proper' animation project I ever worked on. I didn't do much of it but it was fun. Imagine 4 or 5 guys squished into a tiny basement of an old house. Computers and wires everywhere, one wall was dirt. I don't remember too much of what went on... but I do remember alot of incense and poker. I did the littler things the little yellow thing and the angry brown things.

You-tube day

On Saturday I tried to have a Youtube collaboration day at my place. The idea was to get my friends together and in 12 hours make a Youtube clip based on whatever skills and ideas people brought with them. Unfortunately none of my friends shared the enthusiasm I did... except for a few who couldn't make it the whole time due to other things. So nothing of greatness came forth. What did come forth is this Yak... which was drawn by Bec-O'Brien... and animated by me. SDAL got some teddy bears to fight him and he filmed it which should be rad if we can get it off the camera (we are having quite a bit of trouble). We did have fun and alot of sushi.

Morals of the story:

-Don't make your Youtube day a social event. Its for people who want to make films, not someone who wants to play risk (which has its time and place).
-Make sure everyone is going to be there on time, for the whole time and be enthusiastic.
-Have it organised long in advance.
-Don't have Flash and Live Action in the one day... Either Flash or Film. They are different arts... that require different attentions.
-Perhaps make it a competition?
-Don't go to Sushi train (in someone else's car).
-Have the event more mobile... In a car... going from location to location (if filming).
-Make it iPhone free.

Light photos!

So what's going on here the camera is set to long exposure and then a touch is used to draw the picture in the air. It's had for 3 main reasons; you have 16 seconds; you're drawing in the air with no point of of reference; has to be done in the dark. Above: a domestic cowboy rabbit.
