Beasts



I've been working on and off on these Beast images over the last few years and have just started gathering them all together. Most of them are photos I've taken on my travels and holidays over the last few years that I've drawn into. I'm going to work on an animation using the characters soon but thought it would be nice do a little film just panning across the original images like an old 70's movie sequence.

I've been obsessing over Bill Callahan's latest album 'Sometimes I wish we were an Eagle' (highly recommended if you haven't got it) so I decided to put the little film to my favourite song from it 'Jim Cain'.

Have a look if you've got a few minutes to spare or click here for a bigger youtube version

This is GORGEOUS Chris! I love how the words match up with some of the images.

Lovely song. That album is gone straight to the top of my list. Thanks!

Wonderful vid! Off to track down that album too!

Wonderful, Chris. Perfect song too. I can't imagine what we'll see the beasts get up to in their own movie.
