Jarryd Jacobs

Ladies and gents, I’d like to introduce to you Jarryd Jacobs.

My first contact with Jarryd is when I saw some fan art for one of my Goldfish videos pop up on Twitter. I thought ‘hey, that’s cool!’ and retweeted it. I got an email from Jarryd saying thanks. Then, I got a couple more emails asking about animation and complimenting me on my work. Flattered, I responded.

Anyways, I got a couple more emails and we got chatting. Jarryd seemed extremely keen to learn animation, and really *really* liked my animation, particularly the Goldfish music videos. And then I started getting more pics. Some of these I think are amazing – I particularly laugh out loud when I read the comic about the mother chicken telling her youngster they’re having chicken for dinner. Nuts.

I got Jarryd to sign an NDA and put him on some of my projects. I offered to pay him but he wanted the experience. What I have below is a MEGA-post of some of Jarryd’s work he’s sent me, that includes Goldfish, Beatboxing Dave, Mike’s Universe, The Kiffness and some of his own comics.

Amazing. Thanks Jarryd. I get a kick out of seeing someone drawing in a similar style to mine. They say ‘imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’.

It may be worth noting that Jarryd’s autism hasn’t curbed his creativity in the least. I haven’t met him, but look forward to hopefully meeting him in December.

ICON 2016 Disney Triggerfish Story Lab Interview

Hi guys.

So, Les Allen interviewed me and Nas Hoosen at the ICON GEEK EXPO 2016 in Johannesburg recently. We talked for almost an hour about stuff. The video is above.

Also, my brother Dave aka The Kiffness recently dropped this amazing song and video. Love it:

What else is up? I’ve been developing ‘Dogshow’. Would so like to show you some images, but I don’t think I’m allowed to. Yeeeargh! All this kiff stuff I’d dig to show. I’m nearly finished animating the next Bru & Boegie short, then my bro will do music and sfx. I’m also busy making another special animated music video.

Thanks for popping in.
