Music video and life update!Firstly here's my latest freelance work, it's a horror themed animated music video, that's based on a story called Dark Amelia by Sally O'Reilly.The song was written by Darla and the Blonde, and it was inspired by the story itself.We went down a very 'motion graphic' approach to the animation which makes a change for me! It was fun to work on. Collaborating with a writer and musicians was a great experience!Now as for the boring life stuff, some of you here will know I'm going to be moving flats soon. My housemates/landlords are moving out to their new house just before Christmas so we've had to flat hunt super rapido! Luckily we've found a place now and we're awaiting all the paper work etc. So I've got a super busy month ahead with the potential to not have Internet for a brief period of time because of this as well. So bit of a heads up there really! And

Official music video to Light Through the DayHey everyone! Super quick update from me because I need to run around and sort out friends wedding things. I only finished baking for them at 00.30 AM this morning... So yeah I'll be away this weekend helping out and attending a friends wedding.

Most of all I hope you all like it! I got to speak to Alexander directly whilst working on thi
My deviantART StoryI was introduced to deviantART by a friend who is no longer active on here. I joined 10 years ago and it's been an amazing journey so far. I started off just posting mostly animé/game inspired drawings and fan art to get feedback from the community. It wasn't until many years of lurking that I finally started to open out and post in the forums. Over time I got to know more deviants and I made some great friends as a result. The only other site I was a real part of was legendofzelda.com, where I also made some great friends over the years!deviantART has grown so much over the years and the artists in every gallery on here is absolutely amazing. Initially it was more about the fan art and game art that I was interested in, and over time as I learnt more as a student and started seeing more of the world, my appreciation for every form of art grew with it. In fact I touch on many areas of art and design, did you guys know I did origami as well?
