The Music Video Devil

Some faithful readers of this blog might remember that I built a cartoony devil puppet last year, to be featured in a video for the band Angry Johnny and the Killbillies song "Kill Again". Well, that video is finally finished and posted on YouTube. Most of the cheers go to my pal Christoffer Åström at Wizworks, who designed and edited the video. My contribution was to build the puppet and animate it. The devil pops up a few seconds here and there in the video.

But hold on to your hats, ladies and gentlemen; though the video has its own brand of bizarre humour, it's also pretty gory!

The Lovecraft Alphabet: The Finished Film

So, here it finally is. I started working on this in April 2013, and finally finished it 5 January 2014. It's still far from perfect, but it's the best I could do at this point in time. And I'm quite happy with it.

What for 2014, then? Well, my aim has always been to be very productive, but I rarely live up to that ambition. Trying to juggle a day job with various illustration assignments, and my film and animation interest doesn't really pan out. At least it hasn't yet. For the last year I have gradually upgraded my technological assets, as far as my economy has allowed it. For example, I now have a Nikon that allows me to shoot in slow-mo (sort-of), animate in HD, and create greenscreen shots with clearer image quality. Things like that actually make a big difference, as it allows me to work faster when editing.

Anyways, I hope you'll keep visiting my Blog, and find stuff here to inspire or provoke you into getting creative yourself. Happy 2014, everyone!
