A Little Bit About Myself

My photo
I enjoy short walks to the cinema and then sitting down for a long period of time... Reading is good, but films are better. I like drawing, writing, filming. I don't like mushrooms and people that drink Primo One-Shot Decaf Soya Sugar-free Caramel Lattes. In all serious though, I like to be creative with whatever I happen to be able to get my hands on. I try to keep things simple, and enjoy trying new things. So I use my blog as a way to display whatever I decide is worth keeping, and I hope others like them too!

Sketchy City Thunder

Whilst working on a few other things all at once, I decided to post this image. I watched Seasons 1-3 of Misfits a while ago and I always liked their opening title sequence. So, I thought it'd try a dark cartoony-come-painterly style with my own twist. It's not amazing, but I still like it for it's simplicity.

More to come soon!

The BO Series

This post is for links to all posts on my BO Series of cartoon-face-whatchamacallits. The idea was to allow simplicity reign, whilst keeping it looking cool and original.

Kit Kat Cravings Ad

This was a project I did a few weeks ago. It's a 30 second television advert for Kit Kat designed to tickle that funny bone whilst keeping you focused on the product. It's not HD because of the rubbish camera I used, but I feel like the editing is at least decent enough from a technical standpoint.

This video is supposed to be in widescreen, but my Youtube knowledge is severely lacking so it's been squashed. Bear with me.
Now, this may make you want to eat a Kit Kat, so get you shoes on and prepare to run for your closest corner shop...

Under Construction

Huge news everyone, this blog is new. That means a plethora of empty pages. Sorry about that.

You'll be seeing quite a bit of this picture as I perfect the format of the blog, so if there's anything that has caught your eye but isn't yet complete, feel free to give me a prod to see if i'm still alive and i'll work as fast as possible to finish it.

BO Drafts

Well, it's time to start displaying the few pieces of work I feel happy with. Now please bear with me, there aren't many pictures I ever end up keeping due to the fact that i'm such a cynical perfectionist.

This series's namesake originates from my source of inspiration. Call of Duty Black Ops (Can you spot the BO there? Well done you!) has a crummy little emblem maker, but I finally managed to toy around with it enough to create a manic smiley face I felt happy with. Let all foes who pick up my gun be distracted by the glaring red eyes of that crazy little man. Following this, I decided to try and perfect it and create some more variations. And so, the concept was born.

Anyway, at the risk of never getting round to showing anything, here are the first few base drafts for my BO images:

New Beginnings

Hello there, my name is David Saint. Whether you've stumbled onto this blog by accident, by referall, or maybe you're stalking me...Welcome!

I think the best way to describe myself is a "dabbler". I dabble in things. Yeah. Work that one out.

On a more detailed note, I like to experiment with whatever takes my fancy. Poetry, Short Stories, Cartoons, Filming, you name it and i've probably tried it, failed at it, came back to it a year later and produced one good thing out of it. Because of this, my creative output can be...irratic at best. So if you like what you see, feel free to check the blog every now and then.

I'll start posting things as soon as I can, but the surprise for you guys will be what it could be! If you have any suggestions, feel free to comment. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy the few pieces of creativity I jumble together.
