news, making ofs, oldies

We have a new stop-mo animated short in the making, working with the same core team as Under The Apple Tree. In the US one would probably say that it is going to be bigger and better than Apple Tree, and it certainly feels that way. But to be precise, it is going to be very different, insanely bizarre and thought-provoking. And it is definitely going to put a broad smile upon your face. I ain't joking!

Today I start work on the design. Keep you posted.

A little fun-fact about 'green in the office' (commissioned).

My friend Martin Fondse asked me to design his new CD and promo material. Needless to say I enjoyed it very much because, well... just listen to the music. Utterly brilliant.

My copy is a bit battered and scrached and autographed, because I got it at Noth Sea Jazz Festival. Get your own copy at Martin Fondse dot com! 

Inside the CD you find drawings that I made with eyes closed, listening to the music. I drew Martin's many faces of jazzzzzzzzzz...
