Click to play! This project has been a long time coming (you can read about Update 01 and Update 02, if you like), but I'm finally sharing the final render. It was something of an experiment, which meant it came and went with a whole bunch of challenges, but I did have a lot of fun with it!Read More
It’s amazing to think that we’ve made it through another academic year already. In LIT Clonmel, that means a few things: it’s deadline season, it’s exam season, and it’s almost time for the annual Pen & Pixel exhibition!Read More
It's been a super busy few weeks coming up to the last classes of this semester, but it's pretty satisfying to be finishing off so many projects I've been working on for a while. There's a bunch of things in the pipeline that I really can't wait to share! Ruth and I are still keeping busy with our series of musical adventures too, and we've just released our latest music video; a romantic little tale called Table for Two. The fifth in the series!
One of our assignments in college this semester is to create a 30-second advert for a product of our choice. I picked Zippo lighters; mostly because the product itself is pretty cool, so I found it easy to come up with an strong, visually dynamic idea which would sum up the product well. I'm having a lot of fun with it, and it's starting to come together now, so I figured I might as well start sharing the process involved in it as I make progress. Here's step one: The Pitch! ...Which, in this case, also includes styleframes and the storyboard.Read More
It's hard to believe February is coming to a close already! It's been a pretty hectic, eventful, fun-filled few weeks for me, and with that in mind, I'm happy to share Ruth's latest song - Love Heart - which celebrates love and life and energy. Click to play! And be sure to stick around, because next month, Ruth and I will be releasing a particularly special project together; which I may have hinted at in the past... :)

Last week I shared a teaser for something I was very excited to share; and it's finally here! The first of many videos with music by the wonderful Ruth Butler! For the next six months, Ruth and I will be releasing a new original video every month, which are all just that little bit different!
This is my last post of the year; so I just want to say thank you so much to everyone for your incredible support. Every like and share and follow really helps me out a lot! Looking forward to seeing you all in the new year, and for now; I hope you all have an incredible Christmas!
Next week I'll be sharing my last post for 2015, and it's going to be a good one! Ruth Butler has written a brilliant new song in time for the holidays, and I've made a simple kinetic text video to match! (The images above are a teaser!) We can't wait to release it; and I promise it's worth seeing and listening to! So be sure to check back here next Tuesday to see and hear how it all came together!
Between all the "real" work that I create, I make a lot of random bits and pieces of things. Illustrations, animations, sounds. Some of them are tiny segments of projects that I'll never share here, some of them are the result of me playing around with software, some of them are the end results of tutorials, and some of them will lead on to final pieces. Either way; sometimes I make things that I kinda want to share, but they don't really warrant a whole blog post on their own. So here, I've gathered a few oddities that fall under that category.
