This was originally intended as blog designed so that Andy Norton, a postgraduate in Creative Digital Media, could discuss his influences whilst working on a comic for his Creative Portfolio Development module on that master’s degree.
Now, the blog is intended to share articles relevant to his interests, as well as his artwork (past and present), as an experience graphic designer, with a background in illustration and animation.

A Ropey Exercise
August 2008 was an eventful month for me. Whilst completing my master's dissertation, things came to an abrupt ending when I had to leave Middlesbrough for good.
This was the short I was working on for my dissertation, which would be edited into my first (and still only!) show reel showcasing my 'recent' animation work.
It is, currently, the only film to feature my cartoon character, Biffy the Boxer, a character probably renowned, to members of the Animation and Comics Society, for his boisterous catchphrase, "I'm going to punch you!"
I'm surprised I haven't upload it even sooner, as I stumbled all the stuff I did on it, whilst looking for some animation work, within the last 2 years, to put into my portfolio.
There seems to be a trend in my films to along these lines: short, quick-paced, and a bit bonkers. Enjoy!
