Blog: Projects on this month

Monday April 11th 2016 // Children illustrator Melbourne

I haven’t had an opportunity to update my site or this blog since the turn of the new year, since then I have been working on several new projects some of which I am putting the finishing touches to now. Lets see, we had the wedding cartoon for Thao & Linh, the comic book strip for Vlad, Doug and I are waiting on the final text before publishing a children’s book, going live in the coming weeks will be a fitness app I provided some character animations for and right now I am at the beginning of producing several sprite sheets for the Sydney based developer, Codecamp… I think there may have been some flyer design work among these projects as well.. I can never say no to my old friend Nick.

Here are some cuts from the aforementioned.

Blog: Working from a Van 2 – The bad client

Wednesday 12th November 2014// Splash screen

I’ll keep this one short, but some of the difficulties of working from a van can be space, power and the humidity as you pull up in a sub tropical rainforest for the night. I was contacted by a Melbourne client and agreed to create an animated splash screen, it was a days work and in difficult circumstances. I sent them the finished file.. and the dastardly Mahoon never responded again. Cough! The said splash screen for mobile platform application “dive”

Clock yourself App

Client: Megan Lowry

Title: Clock yourself

Myself and Meggen, director at Brisbane based client Next Step Physio, worked together in early 2016 before the launch of her smartphone app ‘Clock Yourself’. 

Clock Yourself is a smart phone app designed by a neurological physiotherapist to train faster reaction-time and psychomotor speed. It guides the user to perform complex motor patterns with the upper and lower body simultaneously. 

Together with Meggen and other mobile developers I worked on the front end design of the mobile app producing a series of character animations. The animations were direct representations of the exercises the users are to follow.

Project Specifics:

  • 2 week contract
  • Character Design/Animation
  • Software used: Toon Boom animate, After Effects


We contracted Will to design and animate a character to perform the complex motor patterns, to demonstrate the technique to the user. This was a tricky assignment because it required the animator to pay attention to the complexities of a very specific and abstract exercise sequence before he could animate it. Will’s communication was prompt and professional, and he checked and re-checked his understanding of the complex movements that we wanted the animated character to perform. We found him to be a most intelligent, insightful and professional person to collaborate with. The final result was exactly what we wanted and we already have plans to utilise Will’s services again.
