Its a Mad, Mad World

With so many projects going on, its been tricky just remembering I'm still in school. Ah well. Graduation is near, but I'm not too stressed. I suppose I should be polishing my demo reel instead of messing around with all this other stuff, but I'm ready to move on to stuff I want to do while I have the spare time.

I've fully immersed myself in a short animation project with some fellow Ex'pression students. That's about to go into production and we can hopefully look forward to seeing it in festivals this summer. I'm very excited for its potential to rock. Too bad its still at a stage where I can't talk to much about it.

David Beck, my room mate and I are still facing the previs of our up coming graphic novel. While David writes the story, I'll be doing lots of concept art. I'll be posting some of that here. I'm hoping to get the whole thing posted on a website when its done (or close to done,) and David's hoping to see it published. Though, at this rate, it may be a while before we even see the first issue. Right now I'm really rooting for David, who has plenty on his plate already, to meet his goal of finishing the script before I graduate.

Ooh, how lovely, Gromit.


No, a blog! Well, all of my favorite graphic artists were doing it, so I thought I should do one, too. I know I don't talk a whole lot, but when I do, isn't it usually about stuff like art or what I'm doing at Ex'pression College? Yeah, so those of you who can stand listening to me wramble about that stuff (or at least would rather skim through the boring parts,) can now enjoy my life as a blog.

For those of you who might not know me, a short intro:

I, Tyne Delwiche, strive with all my might to illustrate stories, invent interesting new characters with in dept persona's, and bring to life the creative perspective of my good friends. Sometimes just with simple sketches, sometimes full blown animation. Ok, I like to draw... and animate; but in a way that suggests life! If my characters don't look like they could move or breath or bleed, then I've failed! Sounds dramatic, I know, but there are a lot of great artists out there that I feel the need to keep in stride with.

Right now I'm going to a little digital art school in Emeryville California called Ex'pression College for Digital Art. I'm in the Animation and Visual Arts program currently, but not for long. I'm about to graduate and I'm looking forward to being unleashed on the graphic art world.

I mean to post a little art work here, maybe some current projects in process, but I do already have a deviantart account ( ) and I wouldn't want this to get redundant, so I'll try to keep things a bit segregated here.

As far as current projects I hope to see up in public eye soon:
My friend David Beck and I are collaborating on a graphic novel. Its still in previs right now, but the storie's almost done and soon I can start thumbnails.
Also building a 2D animation reel as well as a modeling reel, most likely. The animation reel is almost complete, but there's no rest for the wicked: the animating continues.
One illustrated childrens book commission still in the works.
Aaand one website: Under construction.
