All the things I learned from the workshop are constantly shouting at me from inside my head, but alas, I have to get some things out of the way before I start on my new, fresher, kick-ass portfolio. Some of these things I have to get done are pretty damn cool, but some are... underwhelming.
One of the cool things I'm working on at the moment is a collaboration with Sydney writer Damian Madden. This will be a short film for Tropfest 2012. Progress is still at first sketches stage, but I'm pretty confident it's going to be pretty awesome when finished and on the bigscreen. I can't say much about it at this stage, but it will include a bad-ass killer carrot. I'll post some more info about it when I can. :)

Children by Ransom Riggs
'A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs.'
So this great book is going to be a film, and, here's the best part, there's word that Tim Burton is going to take it on. Oh man, what a great combination! Those familiar with my style of work will know that drawing creepy kids is one of my specialities. So, really, there is no question about it, I MUST work on this film adaption! I was born to create art for this film, I believe it whole-heartedly.
So here's where the real work begins! I know the book, the story and the characters well, so it's a great project to start my new portfolio with. I can't wait to get started!
