Grande Dame Stickers for Facebook!


World Domination is happening! Introducing Grande Dame animated stickers for Facebook! The universe heard my call and sent all the biggies at once! When it rains it pours – Ha! I custom designed this sticker pack especially for them. It’s called Kaleidoscope. There are a cast of fun characters to help you express yourself in my signature trippy color palette. Above is Jazz Cat. Not pictured – Lamby, Owl Babies, Milly Mandrill, Bouncy B’day Alien, Sowwy Rooster, Chick and Spidey. I designed this pack as a more all an ages/ kid friendly collection, as I have a more rock and roll one dropping on there later in the year. Massive thanx again to Amelia Gregory for setting me on this life changing path! And to Facebook & the FB sticker team for being so cool. Here’s a little promo vid I made. So click the pic or here and start stickin!

PS – Google, Adobe, Epson- let’s talk! 🙂

New Video for Alabama 3 by ME!!! WOO!

bama2
Ladies and Gentleman! I am very pleased to share my new work with you! I directed the latest video for Alabama 3’s new single – (I’ll Never Be) Satisfied. I kinda can’t believe I just wrote that! But yes – it’s true! I had a 3 year break from videos after The Trip, and honestly wasn’t sure when or if I would ever do another one – but was over the moon when they got in contact and plucked me out of video retirement! Of course it is psychedelic and a bit rude – natch – that’s the way I roll! Ha! It’s a killer track and was honestly a labour of love! I am super proud of it and still pinching myself that I got to work with my heros! Woo! Big thanx to Steve Finnerty from A3 for making it happen! And ladypat for the special fx help! Please share the link and as always – ENJOY! oxo gd

Grande Dame on Youtube!


I am sooo late to the gate on this one! Kinda pathetic ha! There is a reason behind my tardiness – I was never keen on youtube. When it started (yes I remember that far back!) the compression did not look favourably on animation. Esp mine! It was all so pixelated and blocky and fuzzy, I just didn’t see the point in bothering with it. To me it was just a place to watch cats playing keyboards and people falling over, not to display my art! My art that I had painstakingly worked on for ages, so that it could look like a big ol sloppy mess! I was a Vimeo disciple – it was created by video artists, for video artists & it’s compression always looked great! But over the years things have changed. Youtube’s compression has improved dramatically. Also whilst going over a recent ASCAP statement, I was taken aback to see that I receive royalties from youtube plays because they have ads! Vimeo does not have ads, so no royalties there. So I thought – what are you waiting for?

I put together some visual mash ups to more songs from the Grande Dame Album and more. I also put my critically acclaimed animated short – The Trip up – NSFW FYI! Not all are “music videos” more psychedelic visual montages. In fact some are super rough – my computer broke down while I was rushing to put bits together for Burning Man. It went into kernel panic and ate up all my RAM! I couldn’t properly edit. So I wrote down the seconds where the time changes were and dropped the clips in that way! Some are not as smooth as others – but still cool as SHIT! Anyhoo, I made a playlist above – nearly an hours worth of rockin tunes & twisted/ psychedelic animations! Some with stories, some just trippy visuals! Perfect for Halloween too! So have a play, listen and share with your friends so I can get paid! Ta oxo GD
