Hurray for memes!
Animation definitely isn’t the best medium to take part in these kinds of silly things (which is why I’m amazed by this awesome legend of korra version someone made).
But I thought the idea would be funny enough to make even though the momentum has already pretty much faded.
I mean, animating Iron Man doing a pelvic thrust; “totally worth it”

Yesterday I spent the day painting a wine barrel. A local organisation in Rotterdam, promoting vegan cuisine and a green lifestyle, is doing this project where they are going to plant fruit trees in these wine barrels. They’ll place these barrels in the middle of the city. The idea is that locals will take care of these trees and eventually be able to grow fruit from them.
To bring a little more colour to the whole thing they asked people to paint them. So me and a couple of other artists took out a day to add our personal touch.
I had no idea what to expect of the end result, as I didn’t have a plan going in. I also hadn’t touched an actual paintbrush in years, but I actually think it turned out pretty neat for something made in an afternoon. I might do some more paintings soon because this was a lot of fun to do.
Also, check out the work (from left to right) of Stephan Brussche, Aimee de Jongh and Kenny Rubenis who painted the other barrels that you can see in the second photo.
whoo boy, this took longer than planned.
This was supposed to be up on lovely Valentine’s day, but since I came up with the idea a week before I wasn’t able to quite make it without half assing it. So I figured I might as well take some more time to tinker with it.
But hey, it might not be Valentine’s day but the sentiment still counts.
Just a little preview of a new animation I’m working on. Haven’t done anything animated in a while aside from the occasional gif. But I might as wel do something with that degree I have lying around here, so I’m trying to beef up the ol’ portfolio.
Look for it later in the week.
I guess a fun side effect of having always been shy about self promition is that I can pull out old art I’ve only shown to few people and show it to a whole new audience. While browsing an old photobucket account I stumbled upon this drawing I made back in 2009, when Disney acquired Marvel.
It seems my most popular work are the pop culture mash ups I’ve posted up here, so I thought I might as well put this up here. I know, shameless, but I still like the drawing.
Obviously this was made back when the movies of The Avengers and Green Lantern were still pretty far away. We still had no idea how those franchises would end up outside of the comic market.
Seeing as how Disney/Marvel dominates the superhero movie market right now, and The Green Lantern movie pretty much flopped, I find it funny how that joke in the corner has become really dated.
I don’t think I have any more pop culture mash ups laying around, so next time I’ll post something original again.
