As part of an upcoming project with film production company Nomad, I created this Flash animated logo depicting a man observing a mountain range from a grassy cliff edge.

Stay tuned for more images from this project.

During my long-postponed visit to the UK this month, I came across a number of original artworks.
Stored in air-tight folders and packed into a steel chest, items from the early to late 90′s (including a number of animation frames and storyboards from the two animations I did for KMFDM) came to light as well as a treasure trove of ink originals, sketch books, silkscreens and graphic porn – all in perfect condition.

KMFDM Animation Frames Unearthed

A fan recently sent me two frames from the KMFDM animation ‘Drug Against War’ which I worked on with H-Gun Studios in Chicago, circa 1993. The top one is a three cel composite (additional inking by Pete Moriarty) while the one below is the basic illustration which was later coloured in Photoshop and animated in Director.

Special thanks to the Bert Bosman collection.

Beautifully-rendered sequence.

I Bombed Beirut

I love this and would appreciate if anyone knows how it was created (Flash? Swish?)

Röyksopp Happy Up Here’

Superb 3D and motion graphics design.

Royksopp video

This is a beautiful animation that contains so many sweet elements: cut-aways, industrial illustration, mo-cap and vector-traced 3D rendering. And on top of all that, its poignant.

Transformer 3D

A very cool 3D Transformer project

Operation Homecoming

Great utilisation of graphic art and motion graphics. Can’t wait to see the series in its entirety.


Excellent use of motion-capture graphics

The Forgotten

I’ve always liked nutty movies like David Lynch’s Eraserhead and the weird stop-action animation of the Quay Bros. so I thought I’d not only pay homage to these great artists but extract a little piss at the same time. I shot this in one tiny room in 20 mins using a feather duster, an action figure, an old duvet and a bust of an old Jamaican guy.


Just three of the mind-boggling set-pieces from the live-action anime, Casshern. See it: it’s mental!
