I've been working on the walk of the Hairy Diary girl and came up with this little gait... almost dance like. Not sure I'll stick with it but I like it. Let me know what you think.

You'll also notice the usual Flash CS5 export to Quicktime problem... yep, artifacts. Its a known issue and very VERY annoying. There are ways around it check out my next post.

New swag in the bag.

Just to let you all know that finally I have my online store for my illustrations and designs. They are all available on groovy products to drink from, to wear and to play with. Go over to Cafe Press and check it out, I'll be adding more as we go along and if there is something you'd like I'd love to hear it.

First off the press is Green Bird and Orange Horse, I know, such original titles!
Enjoy and look forward to hearing from you,

Vector Illustrations for animation.

I've been having a quick play with chair ideas, prompted by a client request. So if you were a small creature wouldn't you love to sit on a banana?
