This week The Tim Burton Exhibition opens at the ACMI in Melbourne. So by way of celebration I dug out this old eCard I produced for Sugarqube back in the olden days of 2006!! Back then the Internet was slow and wheezy like an asthmatic elephant, so all content had to be produced at an agonising 12fps. Which is why it's a bit jittery.

I think the Burton influence is pretty obvious here, all creepy kids and stripey shirts. I've included some original concept art below, as well as the original storyboard idea I submitted. Hope you likes.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Oh! This animation is adorable! I like your concept art, it's nice to see that you've done a different fine art!

  2. You sir, are mighty talented!

    I really enjoyed the animation, I think you did a brilliant job. I love seeing the behind-the-scenes concept art as well.

    Me likes very much!

  3. I agree with Jason, good to see where and how it all started. I like the last scene. Very disney-like. ;)

  4. Man, I really like this. The animation, story, and characters are superb. And I would hang the concept art on my wall.

  5. Nice job. I miss Sugarqube!

  6. I just recently ran into your blog and I am loving your work. Trying to get to your level ... hopefully someday.
