Prelim character design by Tommy Rodricks for HFC

Prelim character design from Tommy Rodricks, a very talented student that Gav met when teaching at Mass Art.  This is great to have some young talent contribute to the development cause.  Great design Tom.

Moving forward and outward

As the Knock Knock Cartoons website gets its build on, Horrendous is moving in several direction in the process of becoming Knock Knock's development arm.  Working on several projects, redeveloping a few others.  2015 looks bright.

Horrendous Fiasco

We are changing the overall purpose of the "Fiasco" into the development arm of Knock Knock Cartoons.  Knock Knock never went away, and now it just makes sense to split the purpose of these two entities.  The Horrendous site will stay up for now, but will soon transition.  Knock Knock's site is slated for early January 2015.

Have Websites to build

Have a lot to do in the next few months and Horrendous Fiasco is surely on the list.  I have needed to update its website for quite some time now.  Flash sites are just not in the mainstream anymore and for good reason.  Looking forward to simplifying Horrendous into the site it needs to be since I am bringing back Knock Knock too.  Horrendous will be my "stream without a paddle" development and Knock Knock, mainstream production.

Columbus and beyond

Getting set-up for a big push in both Knock Knock Cartoons land and other ventures.  Knock Knock Cartoons which has laid dormant but active for a number of years, will once again be reintroduced to the Ohio and national market.  Both Knock Knock and Horrendous will be active but will work on different ventures in animation market.  KKC will focus on traditional and corporate markets and HFC will push the old animation envelope.  Look forward to updates.

Went to Chicago for longtime creative partner, RPM's 20th Anniversary.  Very nice party and a very nice way to celebrate some longevity in this ridiculous business where there are many failures and few successes.  RPM has been a loyal agency and I hope that I have provided the highest quality work I could achieve, they deserve it.

FIASCO in Columbus

Yep, Gav and Horrendous Fiasco is on the move again and has landed in Columbus, Ohio, south of the city of light and magic, Cleveland, but seated securely in the heartland of this great country.  Looking forward to getting the C-bus rolling on multiple fronts.  This blog after being pronounced dead several times is back up and running.

Background for a project in house. About 90% complete.

Still have to extend to accommodate a pan and make some tweaks.  Heavy influence from Maurice Noble

Birches, finished

Love the work for Pascal Campion, and being a chameleon artist, I can learn a lot from emulating another.  Here is "Birches" commissioned by my darling wife for above the fireplace.
