Uncle Antlers: origins & early sketches

Sometime shortly after graduating in 2010, this mental image popped in my head. I sketched it out. 
Two characters, walking in the rain; one being a child and the other an odd deer-head creature holding an umbrella.

 
From there came exploratory drawings; 
who the characters were, and what their relation to each other was.




How did they meet?



How did they interact? 
What were their personalities like?

Snow piles



Snow piles.
I have always loved these things.
Crunchy, crispified snow with brittle ledges that break when you stand on them. 
Excellent for thinking on.

  It rained today.

  I mailed another film festival entry (and so it begins! Yesterday's was Japan, today Slovakia). Thankfully DVD screeners are less prevalent than they used to be - a lot of fests just ask for a vimeo link.

Still, there's a certain sense of satisfaction and accomplishment in walking to the post office and mailing something.
