October Multimedia Sketchbook

Thinking about graduations.... My brother graduates at the end of this month; I've still got two more years before I get to wear that hat.

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. 

When I'm not creating things, or hanging out with lovely people, how do I spend my time? Reading, watching, travelling. Learning new things and finding new perspectives.

My first real attempts at Lip Sync. I'm currently developing this guy, and will be sharing the final scene soon! 

Blues

Late post this week, I'm afraid! It's been a crazy hectic fortnight overall, between moving to my new little house and travelling to Derry for

ComicCity

, as well as getting back into the swing of college life and keeping on top of freelance-y work. It's been busy, but I'm learning

so

much, and I'm having an absolute ball!

Post-con blues have hit hard this week. I came home from ComicCity in the wee hours of Monday morning, buzzing with a renewed passion for creating things, and a huge appreciation for the people that work so hard to make things happen. This week, I've been feeling an almost overwhelming sense of gratitude, new admiration, and incredible excitement for the future in every sense! I've got lots of books to look forward to reading (check out the photo below!), lots of ideas I can't wait to get down on paper, and lots of experiences to anticipate!
