This was a pretty cool little logo that I did for a male enhancement drug. Simple and clean, but you do get the message. Created in Illustrator.

My Star Wars Animation Demo Reel

Star Wars Demo Reel 1999

Star Wars Demo Reel 1999

Back in 1999, the year Star Wars: Episode I was released, I created a demo reel of my 3D animation work, hoping to score a dream job with ILM or Lucasarts. Lucasarts saw the reel and called me up to come to California for an interview, unfortunately I could not come up with the money to go, being pretty much broke at the time. Then the real world intervened and took me on a path away from all of that, but I still wonder what my life might have been like had I been able to go.  Oh well!

I built all the models and textured them, lit the scenes and created the animation sequences in Lightwave. I then rendered all the footage out as stills and compiled the whole thing in Adobe Premiere.

I edited all the sound fx together with spatial placement and mixed the music as well, it is amazing how far 3d animation has come since then when I was working with the computing power of a Pentium 200Mhz PC!

Law Firm Powerpoint

Created for a law firm, I typically try to establish a color scheme for the presentation and then use images with similar tones.

Business to Business Marketing

Business to Business Marketing

Created when I worked with GNUSA Marketing, a business to business powerpoint presentation that showcased our credit monitoring product. The slides were set to automatically move forward upon completion of the voiceover script for each slide, so the presentation was pretty much autonomous.

I used a combination of logos created in illustrator, pre-matted stock photos and some vector work with the ‘arrow’ for this slide, voiceovers were produced through AmazingVoice. I highly recommend these guys, they are professional and affordable.

Modeled and  rendered, note that there are quite a few differences between the concept and final design. After much pondering on ‘form vs function’.

I love the Art Deco styling of the 1930′s, here I infused it with the sci-fi style of Flash Gordon.

I was thinking more of a Samurai Warrior when I did this bit, but it works well for a Jedi!

A lot of my personal work is Star Wars themed, the Star Wars films are what inspired me to become an artist, designer and eventually get into computers.

Sugardarlings

A funky cool site made for a local cupcake shop who also happen to be good friends, alot of nifty css touches here including rounded corners, shadows and gradients. Also a touch of jQuery for the image gallery.

The site evolved from just the logo which I created quite some time before the actual website was requested. The owners had some specific ideas about the logo and I integrated that color scheme into the website design.
