I made this pixel art animation a couple of weeks ago. I did the design and animation of the separate components in Pyxel edit, and brought them together in Godot.
Here also is the timelapse of the process. It's a long one!
Black Friday Prints
I'm not a big fan of Black Friday, but if you want to support my creative work, or have been undecided about buying a print, now is a good time because there are deals everywhere. Details below... RedBubble have up to 60% off with the code CYBERDEALS. They print on all sorts, including apparel, homewares, and wall art. Displate print metal posters exclusively, and plant a tree for every one sold. A good option if you are after wall art. Buy 1-2 Posters get 33% OFF, 3-4 get 37% OFF, 5+ get 41% OFF Use the code BLACK at checkout InPRNT are offering 15% off and free shipping with the code THANKFUL. Use the code IVCBJG as well for an extra 10% off. They do art prints, including framed and acrylic mounted, and canvas prints. Society6 have 30% off plus free shipping (with some exceptions, apparently). They print on all sorts. Pixels.com have 25% off all wall art. I don't have as many designs there as other places, but if you like one of them you might get a bargoon.

Will I regret it tomorrow? To vote, press red now!
I went out tonight, and I got drunk. Not pished, or hammmmered, just nicely drunk. This was because it was my sisters birthday. Tonight was the first night I've had fun in... forever? No, but a long time. Was it because it was in Galway, rather than Cork? Was it because I didn't know most of the people there? Maybe it was just because I was with my sister? Fine possibilitys all, but I suspect the real reason was that I spent most of my afternoon flipping through some old scribbles and thinking: "Shit.

The art of saying nothing
The Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy movie is to be released at the end of this month. This fills me with a strange mix of emotions that I normally wouldn't feel about the release of a movie, and the fact that I feel them now is a little unsettling for me...

I don't know what I'm talking about though, and from what I've read it should be good fun and true to form. The whale is in it, after all. Seco
