Hello World

After two years of laying concrete pipes four meters under the ground I knew I wasn't going to be a drainlayer for the rest of my life and so I enrolled into the Freelance School of Animation. Don't get me wrong, this wasn't a sudden unthought about move, I have been passionate about drawing and illustration for some time now, before and while working. Anyway it has been half a year now and I have a reasonably solid idea of how hard it can be to break into the illustration and animation industries, with many schools across the country and world pumping out illustration students and such a limited amount of incoming work. You have to be the best and to be the best you have to get good fast.
 Well this here is my blog dedicated to showcasing my portfolio and progress. I hope the artwork I produce will be entertaining enough to keep you guys coming back after reading my boring rants about development, practice, motivation and bla bla bla...
 To start things of heres two illustrations and a storyboard I sketched up for a school project. They follow a cyborg in a dodgy situation with bombs and guns and thing. Real meat head stuff.
