Please, don't thank me all at once.

In the spirit of good old Christmas procrastination hard work, I have spent the last 2 days developing a new font. For some reason I have felt inspired to make a font since my visit to Stockholm, and so have appropriately named it after the city (albeit with a different spelling) - A_B_ Stochome.
The font is still in the beta stages (the kerning isn't perfect, and I haven't yet included numbers or punctuation) however I hope to polish it off soon enough. I created using a modular method, using a square, half a semicircle and a line. (hence the shapes at the bottom of the poster)
Anyway, below is a sample of it. It is available to download HERE, but only 10 times. (if there is an overwhelming rush for it - i.e. 11 people want it, which I highly doubt, then I will re-upload it.)

Happy 23rd December.

I don't particularly enjoy Christmas (not in a 'bah humbug lets be grumpy for the sake of it' way, I just don't really 'get' it).
So here's a video that has nothing to do with Christmas, but is certainly way better.

If anybody wants to buy me a Christmas present, maybe get me a flight back to Iceland?
Don't bother with the return.

Is there anything new?

I am going to strive to make something different.

A few photos from sweden.

Whilst in Sweden in November, I took up the opportunity to further develop my photography skills, particularly in the area of long-exposure.
Below are a few images that I took at night, venturing out into the bitter cold of the swedish outdoors.
These photos are merely works in progress, I have many photos yet to edit, and the ones below are not yet finished. I hope to create a book of my final images for my silence project.






OneDotZero Progress.

Below is a visual style test for Me, Ste and Arrons onedotzero 'disappearing city' brief, in which we are basing upon the idea of singularity.
We have been looking at influences such as 60's modernism and architecture, and will use these influences for lots of the animation. The animation below is a visualisation of within 'singularity' and so will use different influences than the rest of the animation.
The test is below:

I'm quite pleased with the animation, however I think it looks a little bit to like 'tron' and as this is a look that is quite cliched, I need to further develop my own visual style.
