An animated holiday card I created this year. This is different than the sketch below. I saw Frosty the Snowman the other day, and thought how scary is it to have a magic hat that indiscriminately brings things to life? It would make a better horror movie than christmas special!

Jane is the champion! For November anyway. I actually didn't even know they were running a contest, but Jane'll take it! She likes to win. Anyway, I'm honored considering all the great work that was submitted. Thanks Fred!

Frederator is asking for 2- 5 second animations with a winter theme. Since I was planning on making a christmas card with a snowman theme, I think i'll make an animation that I can use for both. Not much can happen in a few seconds, so this is my first idea. A kid finds an unusual snowman...and then finds out who did it. Then I think something really bad happens...still thinking though. I might change my mind :)

After spending a ridiculous amount of time animating A.D.D. Jane, I vowed to do smaller projects that would allow me to experiment with different styles. I'm about halfway done with this 30 second piece about a reckless alien. The design is based on the business card i threw together a comple months ago.

In continuation of updating this blog with past random projects. Early in the summer, I worked a bit for Spot DJ. Their product is that you can create funky-fresh mp3 players that people can build, and embed on their web page (or animation art blog). Its fun and free. Not to mention customizeable. I made a cassette, an mp3 player, a cupcake (!?), and the robot. If Robbie up there looks a little mismatched that’s because you can mix and match the parts. Go ahead and click play to hear some great music! The actual robots I made are below.

I took a last minute project last week to mock up some screens for a fashion game for girls. It was a little rushed but some of them came out pretty cool. I’ve attached a few examples.

Hey, go check out the game I worked on with programmer Dave Castleneuvo (www.boltcreative.com). Its sort of an initial version with only one level. More levels and variations on game-play are in the works. Be sure to use your keyboard to type the answers. Its more satisfying that way. Trust me!

Okay, so i’m going to Flash Forward for the hell of it and because A.D.D. Jane is nominated. But its a good chance to, dare i say it, NETWORK. Ouch, that sounds really grown up. Well, having been freelancing for about a year now, I have managed to not have a business card. Well, I’m caving in and making one. Don’t ask me why I picked this image. It was the first thing that came to mind. I think I have aliens on the brain!

Jumping on the blog bandwagon! I’m Allan and I’m a freelance flash guy working in San Francisco. I decided to start blogging when my short A.D.D. Jane was accepted into Flash Forward. I haven’t been posting my work to my portfolio because its such a hassle to update. The advantage of a blog is that you can just throw up new stuff and whatever you feel like without overloading the portfolio page. For instance, here’s a piece of flash design I just did for a game I’m working on called “Weapons of Math Destruction” for the (now beta) kids site Bonus.com. Its a space-shooter game where you have to enter the answers to math problems to destroy enemies. Its my first stab at the cockpit.
