** If animation doesn't play right away, just click REFRESH on your browser, it should play after that **

This is an EARLY group walk pencil-test to show the clients what the characters from "My Friend Rabbit" would look like together on the screen. It was just one of the many hoops we had to jump through to appease the clients for this show.

Holy crap! I remember this! Haven't seen it in a dog's age!

Your designs were always great on this show.

Heh..  Thanks..  It's been a dog's age since working on it, and believe it or not I miss it.  We only did 17 episodes, sadly..

Cute as the dickens. Love the music too.

Thanks so much..  I loved directing animation and designing on this show.  I can't claim credit for the music though.  Gary Hurst was the one that got that together.  It's some local Toronto band too.

Aww, your characters are so cute.
Nice little cycles and such sweet looking characters! The mouse is really cute as he runs/bounces to keep up. Nice job :D

The music playing sounds really nice. Could you tell me what music you used? :)

Thanks! Yeah I really had fun animating this, even though it took me away from important jobs like prepping the show for production. But I suppose happy clients are also important. ^_~

The music is just a clip from the instrumental track for the theme song of the show. We've been out of production on this show since 2009, so I'm afraid I've forgotten the name of the group that did the theme song for us. It was a local Toronto swing band if my memory serves me correctly.
I guess it's not so wise missing these important jobs, but one mustn't forget about having fun :b

Hmm... Okay, I see. I will try to look it up! Thank you very much ^_^

I have read about you on your Deviant ID and it has made me really excited as well as very impressed!
17 years on the field is awesome! No doubt you must have experienced a lot!
But I suppose you mainly work with 2D animation then? Have you ever worked with 3D?

And can I ask, are you familliar with The Animation Workshop school in Denmark?

Hope you don't mind all the questions~ :)

The reason I ask is because I'm educating myself on The Animation workshop as a character animator, and I'm very excited about the future. I'm only halfway through the education but time goes fast!
