Puss in Boots...
Well... a while back, there was this colleague who was asked to make a short Flash movie, telling the story of "Puss in Boots" and showed the designs of his Puss to us... Good colleagues as we are, we then show some of our suggestions.
I thought this here was a funny new take on how (my) Puss would walk around on those BIG boots...

Phone doodles (2)

This was the first one I did, but the shape of the bubble itself moved to much (...which I thought was kinda okay.)
For the sake of the picture we had to make the bubble less "alive" ...so I did.

Most of the time I just keep the thumbs to myself and skip the testing part until I have something more. But after scanning this I liked it enough to post on my blog.

Nice little trick (1)
I already know how to post pictures and make links to other sites, but there is so much more you can do with it of course... and that’s what I’m intent to find out. Yes! I too want to become a self-sufficient cybernaut!
...pictures as well, see!
I’m not quite sure what to do with this here new acquired knowledge, but I know now that I can use it. And that's all I want for now anyway.

Another animation (test)
Showing animation (or any type of motion) on this blog can only be done with animated gif's I discovered. The video-upload sites I know, don’t allow hot-linking direct to my posts... but redirect you to there pages full of advertisements. If you know a better way which doesn’t evolve this... please let me know how!!! It will have to do for now though. A simple animated gif file is great, don’t get me wrong (see header), but if you animate on 25 frames a second -using doubles as well as singles- the rendered gif’s timing sucks big time... especially on slow computers.
This is a small animation test I did for the upcoming new short of Arjan Wilschut, tested with a computer program called Ernest Le Linetest... I think this program is great, but it can be a wee bit unstable on some systems. And -as you can see- in this pencil test, the animation moves slower then it should be... so you’ll still have to us some of your own imagination.

City logo illustrations
It started a couple of years back when I worked in a little shop run by several people, each supervising a different segment of the shop. There was a store part which sold the handmade clothes and woodwork made by the other two segments. And then there was a day-care part were parents -who wanted to shop in the city- could leave there kids...
The one whom supervised the woodwork part also worked as a DTP’er. It’s through her that comes these requests of making illustrations for the city. There stationery shows the city logo -a unicorn and a shield- and it was the only picture they could use. But they wanted more drawings for several of there departments... and you know how it is with civil departments right? There a bit boring and uninteresting or incomprehensible most of the time. So most of the illustrations are only interesting for the civil servants in such departments... these two I still like best, because... eh... well you can still see what the unicorn (horse) is doing.
stationery logo designed by someone I don't know
There was only this stationery logo, picture (whatever) from which I had to redesign the character. I couldn’t draw the unicorn in the same style, I’m not that good! And besides I already had a hard time as it was, letting a horse take on all these human poses. I mean the thing has no hands!!!
Nowadays they only want this (style) design... At present I would have done it very differently if I could, but I can’t, so it’s always very hard when they want some new material... and I just got the request for 21 new ones!
