Moi's Tribute To The Awesome Peter Falk... :)

Hey Peeps! It is I once again bringing you a new Bloggy Update...But only this time on a slightly sadder note (as you can obviously see from my latest Title). :(

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last couple of days many of you should've by now have heard about the sad news of Peter Falk's Passing. Being an Actor Peter Falk has appeared in many Films/Television Series but the one Character many of us know and love him for is the cigar smoking, trench coat wearing, clumsy but loveable one eyed Detective with a crappy Police Dog and messy Car named Lieutenant Columbo.

When I was kid there were many TV shows my Parents watched which I used to yell from the top of my Lungs "BORING!!!!!" before sodding off to play with my Toy Dinosaurs but "Columbo" on the other hand was an exception; it was the only show I along with my Siblings used to actually sit down with my Parents to watch! O_o Of course the older I became, the more I appreciated "Columbo" and still do to this day. Hell I'll even go as far as to say it is without a doubt (in my opinion) the best Detective Series of all time. Unlike the other Detective Series which frankly I find too repetitive with their "Whodunnit" cliches and the murderer ALWAYS turning out to be the "most nicey, wicey person in the World who wouldn't dare hurt a fly" least suspected person (yeah didn't see that coming), "Columbo" on the other hand; was (and still is) a lot more original, witty and well written series with a really likeable main character carrying the show throughout. We know who the killers are but because they're so clever with how they killed their victims it was the question of how does Columbo figure it out? Of course once he says his famous Catchphrase "Just one last thing..." we know he's figured it out. ;) It's one of the few Shows I can watch it over again and never get bored of it. 

Now onto the Actor Peter Falk...When I heard the news about his death I decided to read up more about his life and I have to say I was quite fascinated with what I read. He declared himself an Actor at age 29 and decided to pursue his dream. Despite Hollywood being a jerk to him at first, he refused to give up and oh behold look who had the last laugh! :D If anything this has just made me respect him even more. Peter Falk is/was living proof of no matter how old you are or how you look like, as long as you work really hard, carry on pursuing your dream and refuse to give up it WILL pay off. 

So to bring this Blog to a close, Peter Falk...I salute you! R.I.P. fantastic Actor, you truly have indeed earned it and forever shall both you and Lieutenant Columbo live on in our hearts and memories for all eternity. Hope you like my above Illustration Tribute. :)

OH! And just one last thing...We all know you're secretly an Angel really! ;)

Well that's all for now folks and until next time...

See ya later Navigators! :D

What does the future hold for this poor unfortunate Soul? Craaaaazaaaaaay Doodle Of Hope has ze answers! :p

Hey Peeeeeeeeps! It is I once again bringing more news from my weird, wacky, wonderful World! :D

First of all I am please to announce that the Film "Bitter Critter" has finally been completed BUT...I'm not going to Upload it mwahahahaha! >:D Well...Not yet anyway. I'm going to be entering it into Film Festivals first so you lovely people may not be able to finally see it for some time.

Secondly I need to talk about the future. I'm now on my way out from Uni and will be facing the big, bad, scary World out there for the first time on my own. I'm not going to lie, I am nervous of what my Future will be. In fact I'm currently trying to gather ideas of what to do next to keep carrying doing what I want in my life which is animation and illustration (obviously).

Remember the original Craaaazaaaay Doodle I illustrated with Joshua Kahan? Well I decided to go back to the image to colour  it and here's the result!

Look at it...Isn't it purrrrrrrty? All he, she or it ever needed was a bit of Make-Up. :'( So screw you Beautiful.Com! Trudie is waaaaaaay more beautiful than you arrogant, vain losers will ever be.

Errrrrr? Yeah I've decided to name the Craaaazaaaay Doodle Trudie! :D Such a nice name don't you think? ;) As well as the above I also took the liberty of trying out different colour schemes for our Dear beloved Trudie.

But wait what has Trudie got to do with this latest Update? Well truth is when I first drew this I was in one of my down moods and oddly enough this really cheered me up. Despite this Doodle not being drawn in my normal personal style I still get fascinated everytime I look at it and would even consider this one of my best Illustrations. Which is why I've decided from this day on to call Trudie my Craaaaazaaaaay Doodle Of Hope! :D Whenever in future I begin to feel down/upset/depressed I shall always look upon Trudie to guide me out of my dark place. *Sniff* :') I also plan to animate this to see what it'll be like alive so watch this space!

AND NOW...Moving on! :p As many of you know by now I've been studying animation for 3 Years and now that I'm nearly finished I plan to continue down this path. Below is my brand new Showreel of 2011 featuring the highlights of my animated pieces of work so far including a few scenes from my latest Film "Bitter Critter" so Fans of Lucius The Squirrel take a sneak peak at how the Film looks like ;). 

But what now? What's going to happen to moi? Well fear not my darling Peep Peeps I am NOT going anywhere! This is the path I've chosen and I shall stick to it! Hell I've even taken the liberty of writing this "To Do" List below... (Note: The priorities are in no particular order.)

I have deliberately made this "To Do" List Public for the entire World to see, therefore, I've got absolutely NO excuse to back out now! I have to stick to this whether I like it or not and you lovely lot have the right to pull me up and question whether I've achieved any of these personal goals in yet to come.

And now to bring about my final conclusion for this latest Update as the below image explains...

Yes that's right Peep Peeps, Uni life may be over but now this New Chapter in my life is only the beginning. If I want things to happen I've got to make them happen, it's all up to me now...AS GOD AS MY WITNESS I SHALL SUCCEEEEEEEED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Awwwwwwww damn! I want to ride on Pegasus now. :'( Hey I've just had a "bright" idea! I shall illustrate myself riding Pegasus! :D And what's more I'm going to give Pegasus 5 Heads just to be more "original" haha! ;D Yes! think I'll do just that! :p Looks my future is looking bright already. ;)

Well that's all for now folks and until next time...

See ya later Navigators! :D In the not too distant future of course! ;p

Get Ready Everyone...Lucius' Day Is Rising Upon Us! :D (And Shout-Out)

Hey Peeps! It is I once again bringing you the latest development to the Squirrel Project and I am pleased to announce the Film is nearly finished and I am now at my Editing Stage! :D

I'm not going to go into too much details but below are a couple images I'd like to share...

The above Image is my Movie Style Poster which I must add isn't finished yet but I'll worry about that after I've actually finished the Film. :p

And the above 2 Images are the Screen Grabs from the Film so far and what they're about well I'm NOT going to tell you that...You'll just have to wait and see. ;p

And in case you're wondering the Backgrounds are done by non other than the brilliant Salomeja Marcauskaite who herself is also an Animator/Illustrator so if you like do look her up. :)

I'd love to chat some more but right now I'm terribly busy Editing my Film and with so little time to do it I hope you all appreciate this little time out I've taken just to Update this for you all.

So that's all for now folks and until next time...

See ya later Navigators and wish me luck! :D
