A seriously crazy, surreal and partly hilarious stop-frame animation brought to you by Bristol’s Aardman AnimationsAardman Animations (the same crew who made Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run). I used to watch this when I was a kid, and I’m amazed im not totally weird as a result. Really atmospheric and kinda creepy, highly recommended.

A real-life, fully completed, coloured illustration with some kind of theme and meaning, yeah that’s right. Second upload in two days, mental. Tell me what you think!

So there we have it. With a full day left before I promised, a new piece of work, a little character design. Not very creative mind, more a test of my technical skills. I’m pretty pleased with this. Apart from the initial sketch, it’s totally done in Photoshop. I’m beginning to to find it a lot better than Illustrator for anything other than messing about with type. Anyway, I’ve included some working layers so you can see how I got there. Peace out

I’ve been into Shok1 for a good few years now. As far as spraypainting on walls goes, he really is quite innovative (and no, semi-political stencil artist Banksy doesn’t count for all you urban scenesters). He’s got it all, characters, wildstyles, illegals, as well as straight up old-fashioned-brush-painting skills.
