Happy New Year 2022 · Hop Dog

Back in the office today, it's time for my annual New Year’s animation loop!
A few days ago I animated this doodle straight ahead just for fun, I didn't know where this loop was heading myself. Now we have this bouncy dog hopping around – happy 2022 everyone!

The fourth installment of my Happy New Year Loops series.

The usual chicken turns into mushroom morph animation. I didn't know how this doodle would end up myself. Animated straight ahead with several runs on timing and shapes.

Happy New Year 2021 · Fresh Breeze

2020 has been a tough year, a rollercoaster – enough said.
This is my Happy New Year animation for 2021, trying to bring a fresh breeze into the face masks and foggy glasses.

Dedicated to all spectacle wearers enduring winter right now. (I’m thinking hard about switching to contact lenses lately.)

The third installment of my Happy New Year Loops series.

New Website Portfolio Online · Skater Dawg Trailer

Here it is! My new website portfolio featuring new projects with trains, soccer balls, isometric buttons. And of course this short retro pixel animation trailer.

Skater Dawg was created for the sole purpose to aggressively promote this relaunch my very own website portfolio. But since I started almost 25 years ago animating pixel characters in Deluxe Paint IV on my Amiga 500, this art thing kind of has come full circle.

Happy to hear from you, feedback and bug reports are always welcome.

Skilling It!

Collaboration time. Together with Musclebeaver and MicMac Media we created some shiny neon-style hand-drawn animation. This is a compilation of some spots which kicked off the Bundesliga Season 2019/20 for the DFL.

GAVE Animation for Goethe-Institut New York

Last Month I was able to provide an animated video for the Goethe Institute NY and its new virtual student exchange program. It enables teachers to offer their students a cultural exchange with a partner school in Germany.
Based on the designs of my fellow motion graphic designer and UI wizard Melih Bilgil.

Check out my other loops here in the work section.
