New Video Tutorials!!!


I’ve been busy updating my video tutorials. There are some new Flash ones and I have also begun making After Effects tutorials too. So, if you ever wanted to learn, there has never been a better time to jump on board. Plus, the are free!

You might have noticed that I have renamed the ‘Learn Flash’ menu link to ‘Learn’. You can now access both the ‘Learn Flash‘ and the new ‘Learn After Effects‘ sections from here.

Thought Bubble Motion Comics 2012


Here are the results of the Thought Bubble Motion Comic Workshop today at Bradford Central Library. We had 32 children participating and I think they did a great job! Doctor Simpo worked with them to create their character, which they then drew, using FriiSpray into Comic Boom. The end results can be seen below:

Hexjibber @ Leeds Alternative Comics Fair 5

Hi there!
I’ll be appearing at the 5th Leeds Alternative Comics Fair on 8th December, at Nation of Shopkeepers, selling my new book The Hexjibber Anti Revision Book and lots of other Hexjibber goodies. See the press release below.

The Leeds Alternative Comics Fair returns for its fifth outing on Saturday 8th December, and this time it’s got a distinctly seasonal theme. We’re encouraging everyone to ditch the Christmas shopping and discover a haven of creativity and inspiration from some of the finest artists in the North (and beyond), and there will be plenty of unique and unusual comics, art and crafts that will make great gifts. Once again, it’ll take place at A Nation of Shopkeepers, a spacious bar that has proved to be the ideal venue with its great atmosphere, interesting food menu and well-stocked bar, and as usual we’ll be keeping it intimate in scale so that attendees can have a good look at everything on offer, and get to chat with the creators about their wares.

Exhibitors this time include ‘friends of LACF’ Gareth Brookes, James ‘Couk’ Downing, Kristyna Baczynski, Adam Cadwell, Andy ‘Hexjibber’ Sykes, plus organisers Steve Tillotson and Hugh Raine, and Sean Azzopardi will be exhibiting for the first time, along with more new faces to be announced soon.

It’s on from 12 noon until 5pm and as usual the event is completely free to enter, so come along, have a browse, a chat, a drink and a fish finger sarnie, and pick up some unique presents for your friends and family (and don’t forget to treat yourself of course!).
