Like some futuristic beachcomber…

… I stumbled across an interesting little video whilst wandering the ‘net today, and thought – what’s the point of having a blog if I don’t write random things in it about stuff like this?

The “this” in question is a video released to promote a recent BBC Timewatch documentary. 3 graphic designers on a tiny BBC budget managed to recreate the Omaha beach landing almost as well as Spielberg, with approximately 996 less actors:

“Bloody Omaha” – behind the scenes

A Huge Break From Drawing

Shock, Horror! After a whopping 7 years, I finally felt like drawing again at the end of last month. I’ve even posted what I drew in our gallery and below:

Now, I thought that by now I’d be rubbish – but the piece I produced was a really good effort. Much like this website that Mike’s created for us 😀 . Thanks buddy, and hats off!

The only downside is that I have to think of something to write in this blog every week now. But luckily for me my life is so interesting. No paint drying round here… *ahem*

Anyway, what follows is a link to something that I wrote in the middle of last year. It’s the first draft of a “plan of all issues” that I like to do before writing something. The title of the piece is “Humanity: I think, therefore I am” and it’s a Japanese-style cyborg/android type thing. The PDF that follows is the “plan” (sort of first draft) of issue one (so don’t be too harsh 😉 ). Mike will be drawing this when I eventually get round to finishing it. I’m sure he’ll post some character sketches in the gallery soon (no elbow in your ribs at all mate – honest).

Humanity – plan

Also, I’ll be posting a couple of videos that I shot way back when and edited to music on our youtube account as soon as mike gives me the details. I’ll post links to those as soon as it’s done.

That’s all for now. But I’ll be back soon with some reviews on the Printed Polo’s shirts and more.

Well, well, well….

What have we here, then? Are my eyes deceiving me?

Please do not adjust your set. After an online hiatus of nearly four years, we finally have a new website!

I can explain everything. Y’see, it’s kind of the case of the mechanic’s car… being a professional web-type person, the last thing I want to do when I get home after a day slaving over a hot keyboard is do more web design! But a promise is a promise. Getting the Catalyst Studios website up and running was my #1 New Year’s Resolution… and about the only one I’ve managed to keep so far!
