A new John K's cartoon has appeared this week. In this case is for advertise some t-shirt designs he drew for an online shop called Stussy. The animation is brilliant as always. John animated the cartoon using ToonBoom's Animate program and worked virtually with some collaborators around the globe.
Here's the cartoon

The last days I worked in a short animation, it was a test for an Android application. They wanted a 5 seconds 'freestyle' animation (my own idea and style) for use as an alert for incoming SMS, email, Facebook and Twitter notifications.
I animated in the traditional way, with pencil and paper, then scanned and vectorized in TB and painted with Flash.

Kjell Bigset works for Fjord1 as a bus driver. He lives in Hovdebygda, a little town in the Ørsta fiord. Until here everything would be normal, the life of an ordinary citizen. But no, I'm talking about 'Kjellen' a character created by Thomas Ryste for the norwegian comedy show 'Klypa'. I find him very funny, in some ways reminds me to Richie Richard from the english serie 'Bottom', a histrionic character with the ease of moving from happiness to violence in question of seconds.
Here you can see a sketch from Klypa, it's in norwegian, so maybe you don't understand anything. For me it's a bit hard ( I understand about 70% ), I don't have a perfect knowledge of the language and I don't understand all , plus he talks in sunnmøring, one of the dozens of dialects that exist in Norway.
I tried to make my own version of the character, I used a retro-cartoon style, like Dexter or Powerpuff Girls. It isn't my style but if you think in animation terms, it's easier in this way.
I recorded two pieces of audio to make a little lipsync. All was done in Flash, using graphic symbols and tween animation.

In my last post I wrote about inking in Illustrator, I made an illustration for a blog called Scandinavian Muppet Art. In this blog you can see a lot of fantastic illustrations made by scandinavian artists and other people from other parts of the globe. Highly recommended !

Some days ago I discovered a fantastic blog called 'Cartoon Snap', made by Sherm Cohen, a storyboard artist an animation director. It's full of interesting and useful information such some tutorials like storyboarding, digital painting with ArtRage or Inking drawings in Illustrator.
I never inked in Illustrator, I tried for the first time while I was watching the videotutorial and... I liked it, I i need to continue improving the technique, but in general terms I'm glad with the obtained result.
This drawing is a part of an illustration I made, I'm going to show you within the next days.
