The Begining of Something... Hopefully Good!




















Ok so I've kinda hit this point where I feel I'm not doing as much as I could be creatively so thought "hey I know!" I'll start up one of these blog things since it seems EVERYONE but me has one!

WELCOME: I'm Max by the way. A 27 year old freelance animation director/ animator based in rainy ole London Town. So I guess the main reason for me setting up this blog stems from the 1st sentence of this post, but to put it more specifically... "I'M NOT DRAWING ENOUGH!!!"... well at least not as much as I would like. It all began after I was speaking to a friend of mine who's also a fellow animator about how I was feeling. After listening to me rant on for a few hours he suggested I watch a few video casts on YouTube of Digital artist guru Bobby Chiu. I'd heard of him before & knew he was an amazing artist but honestly, without sounding like I'm an actor from one of those fake ass anti depressant/ weight loss ads; after listening to him talk about going through the same things I was & am still going through too, I was like "Wow! So it's not just me? So other artists also occasionally get a little too comfortable where they are?" Anyways in short I found his experiences very inspiring so I've now decided to push myself even more to reach new heights in my career & life in general I guess. Not gonna list all of them of course but one is def to draw a heck of a lot more.

So as you can now see setting up this blog is a way of me... & I guess in a very scary way 'you' (whoever/ wherever you are in the world reading this) to monitor me & my progress. Well, hope someone actually found this of some interest & inspiration too. Feel free to comment on my posts/ artwork or ask questions (not that I'll have the answer but... you know).


I'll do my best to keep this blog consistent!
Let's Go...
