Mel Roach’s short TONK’S ISLAND is so close to completion. So to celebrate I made some little gifs of the main characters Tonk and Pip bopping. Also, happy birthday, Mel!

Bop bop bop. Ivan turned my characters from Tonk’s Island into pixel GIFs! Look at them bop.

Exclusive: Nickelodeon Announces 2014 Animated Shorts Program

Hey everyone, look!

My big secret thing has finally been announced. I’m directing and animating a Nickelodeon short called ‘Tonk’s Island’. Wahoo!

It’ll be amazing and magical, spontaneous-fanatical. You won’t believe what you see!

It’s the main reason why I’ve been so busy and not put much on here lately. Proof that I have been doing new and exciting things.

I helped work on this pilot! Put on your excitement socks because it’s coming out soon.

Dead End is my spooky comedy made for Frederator’s Cartoon Hangover (Bravest Warriors, Bee and Puppycat) and it will be coming out very soon!
Have a new promo image featuring our heroes Pugsley, Norma and Barney and a sign which I can no longer walk past without smiling (and shuddering, obviously).
I want to try and do pictures like this every week because you’re all being so lovely and patient.
