On my latest Adult Swim short I wanted to show a world where for some unknown reason everything turned into triangles. It would begin benign and playful, progress to annoying before finally become fatal.

Charles Huettner and Andrew Onorato animated some of the shots. Charles also helped contribute ideas for scenarios.

Character designs for our Adult Swim short,”CHESS MATING” by Ivan Dixon.

I collaborated with Courtney Hopkinson on these character designs for CHESS MATING. I drew them originally then passed them to Courtney and he modelled, textured and lit them then returned to me and I drew line work details on top.

Featured Curator of the Week: Philip Intile [@pi-slices]

Ivan Dixon, known as pug-of-war, is a 25 year old Melbourne based animator, pixel artist, illustrator and game maker. He started creating pixel art at the age of 12 because he wanted to make games and to do that he needed art. Ivan co-runs an animation studio where he spends most of his day drawing or planning new projects. To let off steam, he creates short, looping pixel art GIFs. He likes work that involves characters, narrative and humour and is inspired by other artists, musicians, television, film and real life situations. To make his art, Ivan uses a program specifically designed for pixel art called GraphicsGale.

Philip (@pi-slices) has written this kind post about my pixel art for Cross-Connect.
