hello! My website lives and so does my blog. Well! I have finally left Australia after spending 9 months there, had a great time, but time to move on! Im heading to Malaysia where i will stay with my girlfriendm but for now I am In Singapore. Its hot here. And humid. Not good weather for a Scotsman. But im surviving! above is a sketch of someone i saw on the train today, and below a nice little lion.

Oh! while I was in Australia, I had the pleasure and privelage of doing some work experience with a great flash animation company called Nectarine (www.nectarine.com.au) I worked on some character design and animation, learnt a lot about flash at the same time. So thanks guys! Here is a project I worked on. I did the character design and some animation, and Steve Piscopo did all the other artwork.

Nice work man. Did they let you touch with any of the lip-syncing? It was definitely dead on that link you provided.

How do you like the change of scenery from Austraila to Singapore? Or rather a more important question how is the food and weather?

Rob: Thanks for your awesome comments!

Marco: Thank you marco!

Alexei: hehe thanks mate!

Irene: Thanks for your comment! Singapore is nice, I really liked it there, more than I thought I would. If you enjoy the heat, then working there would be good for sure! Esp in this industry - I think they are trying to expand it. Thanks again!

Mauricio: Yeh Its been good man! Though Im sad... only 10 weeks left till I go home! travel almost over - thanks mate!

maki: Thank you!yeh having a ball - although posting is proving difficult! hehe too much sightseeing

Ghettofab: Thanks mate!!! Aprecitate it!

Dintoons: Thank you!

Shou: yeh man, I did lip synching on the second girl that talked, and on the 4th to talk... I think. Most of what I did was animate girl 2... the one with black hair. And some of the borwn haired one. Oh, its not too different to be honest - I mean, Australia has a huge Asian influence, so I didnt feel much culture shock going to Singapore from Melbourne! Weather is just bearable - but food is GREAT!!!!!!!!!! haha

Albert: Thanks Albert - Most of my paintings are done in Photoshop, though sometimes I use Artweaver. Cheers!!

Bog-art:haha thanks dude! yeh those guys are great with flash. Its opened my eyes! Im a flash convert. Might make a film in it someday

bambinomonkey: Hey thanks for watching my film! Appreciate it!

Donna Leong: Hey thanks! haha it looks like your room mate? wow. Maybe it is. Spooky.

Martin hsu: haha thanks dude! I hate myself too. Yeh travelling is great. I recommend it to everyone who can afford the time. And if you go to Asia, u dont need much money! woo!

kei phillips: thanks kei! wow appreciate it! Yeh we need more Brits on the old blogging! thanks again

jimbo: Wow really? haha yeh I was in australia for 9 months, had a great time. How you finding it? And Malaysia - I really like it here! haha better than sing? No comment! But i prefer the prices of food in malaysia :D :D :D
