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.

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.

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. 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.

Amazed Espresso Bear

A loop I did frame by frame for the “CharacterReactionGIFs” challenge on pictofolio.com.

This bear is animated frame by frame in Clip Studio Paint and put together in After Effects. Similar to method acting I consumed a lot of espressi during production and performed some espresso stunts myself.

Also part of my looping animations projects.
