The Ballbarians





before we get started - great little doodle site for sketching!

Hi everyone. So things are getting ridiculously busy with thesis. I forgot to announce that I'm back playing intramural dodgeball. After two great seasons, the Artful Dodgers are no more, for now... Nico and I are now on the Ballbarians. We are about halfway thru the season and doing just great. This time we joined the top division in the league. Shit is serious. check out our team blog!

Heres a quick sketch I did for our team. - after we chose the name we found out what it means on urban dictionary - check it out...
Also went to Cut and Paste last friday with Nico.
This was a world design competition. split into 3 categories 3d, 2d, and motion graphics

contestants were given a theme and they had roughly 20 minutes to create an image representing the theme.
