So I’m on Twitch!

Good evening folks!

Only a small post as I’m under the weather right now and wanna get back to bed and rest up so I’ll recover quicker!

Just thought I’d let you all know I’m now streaming some of my artwork on Twitch! It’s limited to Pixel Art right now as I’m still waiting on some tools I need to do more traditional styles of work on my computer, but there’s music, and I’m happy to chat with anyone so feel free to pop on over, and if you’ve got a Twitch account, click the follow button on my channel to be told when I’m streaming!

A Blog Post!

This Saturday I’ll be attending Mini-Con Cardiff! This one-day event is an awesome place to test new products and for newbies to cut their teeth on the Convention Scene. It’s where I first got my start and a place I’ve not only returned to year on year but have also begun to lend a hand in its promotion and setup.

This time I’m doing my biggest shift in product range since first establishing Ommy’Stickers a few years back.

In recent conventions, I’ve begun to notice stickers becoming a more and more commonplace product on other stalls. For this reason, I feel the bottom may be about to fall out on the sticker market. It served me well and stickers will always be a cornerstone of what I make and sell, but clearly the time has come to explore other products. Those who don’t adapt are left behind after all.

New products tested at this convention will be Pebble Pets, a proven success in shops but this will be my chance to test them on a smaller scale in a different environment.┬áI’m also bringing greetings cards, bookmarks, and some original art (maybe prints – time is short to procure the stock┬áneeded).

PLEASE HOLD


Please Hold was my final film in University.

This 3 minute film was born out of my dislike for speaking on the phone. The inability to see the other caller results in all kinds of awkwardness which I felt was a good source for dry and often grim humour.

This film played a major role in my Upper Second Class Honours in Animation Direction and Production.

Launching this site!

Good morning, how are you? Sexy I hope!

Hello, so as you’ve probably guessed my names Timbo. I’m a freelance animator, illustrator, designer, and artist. I setup this site as I felt the name I was going under, Ommy-Noms.com, had become more a brand of it’s own rather than a site that reflects who I am. If you’re looking to buy my work in product form I’d recommend checking out Ommy-Noms though as all that kind of stuff is done through there.

If you’re looking to use my services though you’re in the right place! Feel free to poke around the site, see if you like what I do. If you do then by all means pop by the Contacts page and find your preferred way to drop me a message! I’m always interested in new clients.

Bored to Death


Bored to Death was the result of a University project in which we worked with a medical research team to create a healthy living awareness. I was director, writer, concept artist, assistant 3D modeller, and assistant animator on the project.

Inspired by my work in ‘Car‘ I decided to apply the simple low poly look to this project. I also felt that scare tactics and preaching don’t help someone to asses their lifestyle and if anything will cause some to be stubborn so the basic plan of this animation was to give the viewer enough to come up with their own conclusion.

Car


Car was a test animation leading on from the Low-Poly Beauty project to see how simply I could give the illusion of more with low poly graphics. The scene above involved a stationary card that bobs up and down, and objects on the side of a static road designed to slide past giving the illusion of a car driving down a long road.

Quack


Quack was originally built as part of a 36 hour animation challenge where the theme was the word ‘Duck’. As a result of writing, recording, drawing, and animating the whole thing in 36 hours single handedly it’s quality did suffer. As a result the above video was created to fully realise the idea behind Quack and was shown at the Chapter Movie Maker screening event in Cardiff.
