I storyboarded and made the animatic for the theme song and all (minus one) of the rest of the songs in series 1. I also animated the middle chunk in this, the part where the bugs come in and introduce themselves.
In related news, "The Lingo Show" was the most viewed children's show for June 2012! Hurrah!
All of the episodes are now available to watch in the UK on the BBC iplayer.

Clara acquired a best friend called Evie. I wanted Evie to be Greek and have a huge crazy family, which you don't see much in cartoons! I always liked her, maybe she should have her own show instead...
Evie's big sister, Anita, would have been Clarabell's babysitter.
She had a fancy cat who was based on my fancy cat. Another character I'll be re-using elsewhere if I can help it.

The silver lining to this, is that I've at last been given the go ahead to post the artwork from the pitch! I've got some fun designs and storyboards lined up to show you so check back! :)
I decided Sparky should be much bigger than he was in the short, as what's the point of having a pet dinosaur if you can't ride it around?
The unfamiliar character on the giant spider robot was a new addition, meant to be Dr Gloop's assistant. More on him later.

There's 3 or 4 more parts on the way, but it's going to take a little longer than previously anticipated to get them done. This is due to some exciting side projects that have been hungrily consuming my free time. Can't say much about them yet, but watch this space!

The show has aired at last, so finally I can make a post about it. This is the first time I've done design/animation work for a Cartoon Network show so I'm pretty excited!
Over the past few months, I cartoonified the cast of a live-action show called the "Ha! Ha! Hairies" and animated them in about 35 short sequences. It was a lot of fun to work on, my favourites were Pa (Third from the left) and the dog with it's wiggly little toes.
The show is a live-action/CGi mix, with 2D animation representing the characters' thought bubbles. I'll post some of the sequences once more episodes have aired.
Ha! Ha! Hairies is now on airing on S4C (UK), and is coming soon to Cartoon Network's Cartoonito.
