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.

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.

Happy New Year 2020

My latest happy new year animation featuring the bird of my next short, very short animation.
Also part of my happy new year series. Have a good start in 2020!

[Edit Nov 2020]
Well, yes, the „happy“ in “happy new year” only lasted until March 2020 when Corona made its global debut … but I hope next year it will last a bit longer. Fingers crossed. The next loop is in progress.

A Little Turnaround

A few poses of a rough turnaround of that guy. The tragic/mean main character of a short story I’ve been working on lately. And I took him for a spin … (see below). More character designs on this project page.
