James Wolfaardt


Good day! My buddy James Wolfaardt, also from Plettenberg Bay in South Africa, has been doing some pretty kiff stuff.

James (who I’ve featured here before) used to be an award-winning advertising copywriter in Johannesburg but rescinded that lifestyle for a more frugal but more extraordinary life in Plett. What a legend.

I’ve grabbed a couple pics from his blog called ‘Happy Chicken Suicide Cult‘. Here they are for your enjoyment :)










Hi guys. As you may have noticed I haven’t updated my site in ages. It’s because I’ve been kind of busy with stuff, and every now and then I think ‘ok ok, I’m gonna do a MASSIVE update’ and then the update in my mind gets so big that I never get around to doing it. So, that’s what happened. In the meantime, I’m getting prepared to go to Annecy in France for the ‘Annecy International Animation Festival’, and we’re going as a South African delegation, and we’ll have a SA stand there! So there’s been quite a few preparations for that. Part of that included putting together some select animation clips for a South African showreel. I put some stuff together and then thought ‘well dang, I may as well make a showreel now’. I have never made a showreel for myself. But I made this one in about 30 – 40 minutes and I’m happy with it. It also has some Daft Punk music, so, that’s nice.


I Won a Thing


Yay for Mike! I won an award for ‘Best Animation’ at the ‘Short & Sweet Music Video Awards‘ in Cape Town. The award was for my animated Goldfish music video ‘One Million Views’. Thanks to organisers Julia Stephenson and Cara Rust, the organisers for putting the awards together – it was great! Also, so cool to have my buddy Ant Silverston from Triggerfish present me the award! Woot! Some pics (gotta click on ‘Continue Reading’ to check more, yo):
