Brighton Rock

The last one of the 4 projects I got was to make a 6 page graphic novel from the book Brighton rock by Graham Greene. Ii is a really good book, even though I found myself hating every main character in it… I decided to illustrate my favorite part of the book which is when Pinkie is recording his voice for Rose. If I had had more time, I would have added some more grey-tones, shadowing and fixed some of the drawings. But I feel pretty happy with it considering the time I had.

I liked the Brighton Rock movie from the 30’s a lot, but found it sad that they censored/changed the things pinkie says when he is recording.

How to put a head in the bed

I was supposed to create a macabre “how to” book. So I came up with loads of different ideas, but the teacher found most (all) of them to be to macabre. So I ended up with the tittle “How to put a head in the bed”. I struggled a bit with the art style on this one. Originally I intended it to look a bit art deco, like those old commercials from the 1930’s. You can see one of the finished art deco spreads her:

But due to the lack of time, and seeing how many liked my sketches for this book, I ended up keeping the sketch style for it.

This book will teach you how to place a decapitated head in someones bed while they are sleeping.

I am pretty sure there are some spelling errors in there.

This was definitely my favorite out of the 4 projects I was given.

Hitchcock Posters

Finished all of the projects today! Which means I finally have the time to socialize again.

One of the projects handed in today was a project about Hitchcock posters. I was supposed to make 3 different Alfred Hitchcock film posters. Started the project with watching some of his greatest classics, and after that some of his less known ones. I ended up making posters for “the Birds”, “Vertigo” and “Trouble with Harry”. They were printed out in A2, so they are quite big.

I surprised myself by not making a poster for Psycho, which is one of my favorite films.

Vertigo has one of the funniest endings I have seen  in a long time. Where did the nun come from?

I was surprised that I had never heard of Trouble with Harry before. It is one of my favorite Hitchcock films now.

Still a classic.

Magic Monkey Beans – animation finished!

Finally finished it! I feel kind of bad for the monkey in it, but to be fair, he was pulling my face…

Thank You Katie Markwick for helping me out with your acting skills 🙂

Animation update

I am still animating day and night, but I am finally starting to see the end of it (Hopefully by the end of this week.). So just to keep you guys updated, I have decided to add some stills from the animation. I LOVE the feeling you get when you are starting to see the end of a project 😀
