And

I forgot I've been doing some more plush commissions that I should share. Someone wanted Fable 2 Reaver and I'm proud to say I actually pulled it off, despite Reaver's outfit in Fable 2 being very...decorative. Also an original character from Fable 3, or I should say someone's Hero Prince they named Jake.

Once upon a time...

I was obsessed with becoming a paleontologist. Go figure, right? Alas, I lack the scientific brain for it so every once in a while I go and find dino documentaries to fill the hole.

and sometimes come across really amazing ones. There was one other that was all about the largest dinos on earth which were...crap, bigger than a three story building? I'll have to go and find it again. Makes for decent background noise when you're sewing.

Sanrio

I...don't know if this is for real or not but apparently this is the most recent Sanrio mascot to stand beside Hello Kitty. Gudetama - the sad egg. My Japanese isn't perfect but the first part says (after he's cracked and poured over rice) 'nwaaaaa' which is like a whine. Then "What is this thing!?". Song and dance, song and dance, then we end with 'Leave me alone please'. Oh my God, JAPAN I LOVE YOU, you strange bizarre place you.

Another short film

Dark Noir from Gillian Glendinning on Vimeo.

Oh, I likey - kinda dark, so I wouldn't recommend it to young children but interesting concepts to anyone who is an artist.

Wreck it Ralph concept art

I've been watching Wreck it Ralph over the weekend and have decided it's my new favorite film. This is an incredibly well done animated feature. It's unorthodox, Ralph is a guy you just want to succeed, the characters are fantastically well done and interesting and the art, oh the art. As you can see, I LOVE IT. I'm buying the art book when I scrape up the money. This is the first concept art book I've bought since Finding Nemo. I have an obsession with Sugar Rush. I would buy everything ever merchandized but I would end up homeless. I feel like an idiot for not paying attention when it came out a couple years ago.

A short film

MALAISE from Daniel Beaulieu on Vimeo.

Yanked from i09; Malaise, a short film from Daniel Beaulieu a student from Vancouver Film School's 3D animation program. Everybody go on over to Vimeo and give this young man some serious praise.

I warn you: what you are about to see is addictive and dangerous

I almost think I shouldn't put these here. I have found Blippo - an online store that carries everything Kawaii and teeth rottenly cute. They have TONS, TONS, TOOOONS of amazing things that are all very inexpensive. It is my doom to have discovered such a store. Now I have to go and bookmark what I want. Your welcome.
