In 2014 my pencil drawings were finally published!! All thanks to Donna LeBlanc, who created the story and wrote all the wonderful rhymes. It was really fun working on it.
I made this in 2014, after I finished doing inking work on Kaspar Jancis’ illustrations for the book Lennujaama Lutikad Ei Anna Alla (Kairi Look).
These characters are designed by Kaspar, but the whole animation idea and execution was done by me.
As the last year of high school was ending I finally saw hope. So I slowly started to get back into drawing.
Middle school made me play more and more games, but my high school free time consisted entirely of video games. It was the only sanctuary from all the disgust and ugliness I had to deal with in the community of my school. I had to often question myself if it was maybe me who was abnormal instead of everyone else. Luckily, all the negativity was washed away once I stepped into the different worlds of virtual reality.
In the mid 2000’s there was a huge battle between different video game companies. This is when I discovered online forums and that is what made me do this.
Still, none of the online forums could ever break my loneliness.
When I went to high school my creativity was probably at the lowest point possible. From the very start I did not know any of the people there, and later I just stayed away from everyone (reason: disgust). So being a complete loner for 3 years made me stiff, anxious and very awkward. As it is evident in very few drawings I did there.
The true Dark Age of my life.
These guys helped me out greatly with their sound work for my films. So it was my turn to help them out.
The guys in the band have these fictional characters as their stage personas, so I made them in a science fiction fashion. Of course with a cartoony twist.
Then we went with this:
Later, for another release I made this:
One assignment I had in the university was to create a bunch of TV idents…using ONLY Adobe After Effects! That was a nightmare, since I had zero experience using it.
The highlight of the project is the creative aspect. I got to create anything I wanted to promote a network (unofficially). I chose NHK, the Japanese one, since not only is it only 3 letters long, this network is known for a huge variety of quirkiness.
So here are the storyboards from those idents I made. Yea, I know they don’t look professional at all. But the goal for me was to create a story in a quickest way possible.

One driving school was asking for a logo. My idea :
But sadly, there are many decisions from the client that made my original idea from this
