LittleBigPlanet: Tokyo Game Show

LittleBigPlanet, the game I'm working on with my friends at Media Molecule, for Playstation 3, just had its first proper showing in Japan at the Tokyo Game Show. So I needed to make a proper Japanese trailer to go with this.

It's a bit of a compliation of previous trailers I've made for the game, but with a new stop-motion intro (made using a glass table, my hands, some programmers piling up packs of paper as ballast, and some pens), and some motion graphics explaining the 3 key principles of the game: Play, Create, Share.

Little site update

I've done a little update on the main site just to add the recent illustration I did for Computer Arts Projects magazine. Here's a smaller version of it, right here:

And the only other update to the site is me sneaking in a couple links to this blog, as I reckon its about time someone actually sees it.

DesignersBlock / SecretWars

I went along to DesignersBlock: Illustrate last night, 40 currently empty retail units were transformed into a kind of doodlevillage, with over 70 artists involved. Plus a good excuse to drink beer with friends that were exhibiting, like Jon Burgerman and Cristina Guitian

Here's Cristinas wall:

And here's my drunken contribution from the end of the night:

Computer Arts Projects 102

Something landed on my doormat this morning, or at least the patch of wooden floor where I should have a doormat. Issue 102 of Computer Arts Projects. It's got a tutorial by me in it, showing how to make huge stompy monsters stomp around in a monsterious manner. Here's a preview, showing the illustration I did to do with it:

Its a really interesting issue, all based around character design, and purdy cover by Tado.
Plus my friend Jules has got a great illustration in there too.

Stop looking at my withered old hands - look whats stuck on them: Stickers! I just got these printed. They are pleasingly shiny. Shiny is good.

They make good facial decals as well:

Don't worry Laptop. You get one too:
