Flux Machine turned 3 years old today! Here’s a happy face.
I know I haven’t been posting much (at all) recently. Will be making more GIFs soon. Also will start posting some other fun things that I’ve been working on. Here are some of those things, in link form. 
 - The Washington Breadskins (a proposal for renaming the Redskins) - sassybirds (gifs of birds being sassy) - twitter! (not really a new thing but hey) - an interview where I was only allowed to answer in GIF

In the 1960s, GE engineers developed the Cybernetic Anthropmorophous Machine, or Walking Truck. In 1966, the US Army awarded GE a contract for building the experimental vehicle. However, its hand and foot controls not only fatigued operators, but were impractical for prolonged use on the battlefield, so the project was discontinued. Kevin Weir at flux machine recently reanimated the Walking Truck so the mechanical beast could gallop once more. 

Here’s another thing I made for GE!Imagine this fearsome beast ambling after you on the battlefield.And then tripping over a pine cone and exploding everywhere.Also imagine a walking truck ice cream truck.

In the 1960s, GE set out to create Hardiman, a mechanical exoskeleton that could give its user the ability to lift up to 1,500 pounds. Unfortunately, the suit’s size, weight, stability and power-supply issues prevented it from ever leaving the laboratory. Kevin Weir at flux machine recently re- animated the wearable tech to help us imagine what Hardiman might have been.

GE gave me some old photography to play around with. Here’s an Edison GIF.

Did a piece for A&E’s Bates Motel. Lots of fun to work on. Pretty creepy show.

The Flight feat. Keaton Henson - Dark Corners

A while back this band asked me to make them a music video. Took me over a year (because I had no idea what I was doing) but now it’s finally been released. Anyway, check it out. Pretty spooky. Might wanna watch it somewhere dark.
