The Art of Halfbrick

Halfbrick recently collaborated with Dynamite Entertainment to come up with this; The Art of Halfbrick, a hardcover treasury of concept, production and marketing art from Halfbrick’s varied game projects. There’s a fair bit of my stuff in there, but don’t let that stop you checking from it out.

Sketchbooks Exhibited

A while back I had a bunch of my sketchbooks exhibited at the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery as part of a UniSA alumni exhibition titled The Power of Illustration: A Legacy for the Future. If you want to go and see them, you can’t – this  post is very late and the exhibition ended months ago. Photos below.

Fruit Ninja Frenzy Force – Complete

Fruit Ninja: Frenzy Force, the project I’ve been working on for the last three years, is finally complete. All thirteen episodes are available to watch on YouTube Red. First episode is free.

I had the opportunity to take on on a number of different roles on this project, learning a lot and working with a number of skilled and interesting professionals from all over the world.

If you’re interested in a peek behind the curtain, you can watch the director’s commentary on episode one, featuring myself and co-director, Gordon Crum.

Twisted Miniatures

Some of my designs* have been made into tabletop miniatures! The Dickensian-steampunk project “Twisted” by Demented Games is well underway and features some beautifully sculpted pieces based on my character concepts.

I designed the Nightingale and Sowerberry figures a couple of years ago in the early days of the project but only recently found out that the miniatures have been made.

Check out the catalogue including these and other Twisted miniatures and be sure to mosey on to the Kickstarter page to support the project.

*Coloured 2D art featured on product page was not created by me.

Fruit Ninja: Five Fruitful Years

Halfbrick – the company I work for – has just released a documentary on the history and future of the Fruit Ninja brand. It’s worth checking out if you’re interested in Halfbrick, Fruit Ninja or just all things mobile development. It’s quite an interesting story and features exclusive interviews from original creators and developers.

I also make an appearance  and speak briefly about the up and coming Fruit Ninja TV show I’m working on. My bit starts at 41:40.

Fruit Ninja Origins Trailers: Concept Art

As promised, below is a small selection of my concept art from the Fruit Ninja Origins Trailers (see previous post to view trailers).

The project required concept art in several different areas including character design, prop and environment design, and my favorite; weapon design.

Fruit Ninja Origins Trailers: Complete

Here is the full set of Fruit Ninja trailers I worked on for most of 2013 with the People’s Republic of Animation and Halfbrick. As far as I can remember, this was the first time I took on a role that was not exclusively art related (though I did also produce much of the concept art for these – I plan to post some of this soon).

I co-wrote and directed these trailers with the team at Halfbrick. Check ‘em out below:
