Turning a new page...

I'll slowly be letting go of this blog and my Radikin Studios website in the months ahead. You can continue to check out what I'm doing on my new blog (link below) and eventually my new website. Thanks for stopping by!

Animatic work for Breakaway Games

Here's some storyboard/animatic work I did for Breakaway Games awhile ago that I never was able to post. My contact was primarily with the art director/lead concept designer who was not only a pleasure to work with, but also turned me on to SketchBook Pro! Thanks Mike!

All of these were based off of loose ideas or sketches and were to be used in an animatic (a form of pre-visualization combining illustrations or images in sequence) for various cutscenes in a video game. However, as is sometimes the case, this particular game was shelved. A great learning and stretching experience though. I'd like to do some more work for a gaming company.

Here's just a few of the panels I did. A couple of the images are instruction and direction I got from the company, then what follows is the clean-up. If you'd like a closer view just click on the images.

Have a great 4th of July weekend everyone!

More stuff from work...

Here's some more stuff I have the green light to post. Please note, all images copyrighted by and property of The Beistle Co.

Here's a sketch that never really made it to a final...I still think it has some potential though. Maybe someday I'll get the chance to pull it out again.

Toy Show 2009!

Stopped in at the 28th Greater York Toy Show on Sunday afternoon and had a good time walking down memory lane once again. One of the best gatherings of toy sellers I've ever been too and it's just plain fun! Here's some of the highlights...

Officer Big Mac hand puppet. Passed up with great angst by my 9 yr old, but he came away with a lot of other stuff he liked.

There were a bunch of cool, homemade robots. These are just a few that we saw.

The iron tooth robot tank flanked by his evil Santa henchmen...mwaaaaa haaaa haaaaa!

And what toy show would be complete without Cycling Daddy?

By far one of my favorites at the show, but way to pricey for my tastes. Love the copy on the box...the wig wag walk. Classic.

And here's the single item I picked up at the show, after exercising much restraint! Click on the image above for a closer look.

It's a repro, but looked so cool I couldn't resist for only $8.00! We're already planning our trip back again for next year, was a lot of fun!

Work for work, 2008

Here's a few pieces from work that I'm cleared to post now. Hopefully will have a few more in the coming week or so.

Some Day of the Dead masks, a door cover, a DOD cutout, and some stickers for firehouses to give out to kids. (All images copyrighted by and property of The Beistle Co.)

Retro Fever

Okay, after deleting a previous post, here's what I originally intended on posting tonight...grrr...

I love anything with retro art, especially any packaging ads from the 50's, 60's etc. Here's my attempt at that look with a few stickers...with my own twist thrown in.
