Just thought I'd make a wallpaper with a lot of the turnip Head illustration entries. If you did one and don't see yours it is because I used only the ones that were colored, and full body illustrations. Also I missed a few that I wanted to add later, but don't want to start over. :)
Animated short music video for "I'd Rather Be the Wolf". A very fun project to work on.

Some pretty big news was announced today — I'm gonna direct a movie I wrote! It may be the biggest announcement of my life and I'm super excited about it. :oD
I wanted to take a minute and discuss what this news means for us at hitRECord. This feature project is going to be a traditionally produced film. One day I aspire to do an entire feature film using hitRECord.org's open-collaborative creative process. However, I think it is important to have experience directing a feature in the traditional way. I do hope the hitRECord.org community will be involved in this project some how, in various ways — and, I'll discuss that soon when the time comes...
But, what does this mean for hitRECord while I'm directing this feature? Well, we've been planning for this internally for quite a while. hitRECord has grown a lot as a production company. And we've outgrown the infrastructure we built two years ago for hitRECord to operate with. We've proven ourselves — creatively and businesss-wise. So, IT IS TIME TO EXPAND! Wheras it has been a mostly full-time job for our team, it'll now be a very full-time full time job for our team. I'm going to be hiring more people (we're job creators!) and I think we're going to be able to operate more efficiently.
In the past, hitRECord has had more opportunity than we've been capable of taking on - and that's a good thing. It's time to expand to help realize our full potential. We've been planning hitRECord's growth for a while now to coincide with my feature film project. What we're doing here at hitRECord won't falter, it will accelerate. In the coming weeks, we'll get into the specifics about how everything will work. I can't wait to share some of this stuff with you.
I was telling Jared yesterday that the work we've been doing here at hitRECord — the constant collaboration and creative output — makes me feel like I'm trained and ready for the marathon that is directing a feature film. Thank you for that.
And, thanks again.
The best is yet to come...
I had this big inspiration a few minutes ago, so I just had to record it... It's a tiny song I just wrote (it lasts only 1min10sec), and, because it was important for me to get the lyrics right, it's in Finnish! Hahaa I wonder how it sounds to you...
(For those who didn't know - shame on you! - Finnish is the language we speak in Finland which is a country in Northern Europe. You know, the country Conan O'Brien loves.)
Here are the lyrics - in Finnish and in English... enjoy my bizarre language<3
On elämä kummallista tosiaan - Life is very strange indeed
Täällä yksi yössä laulaa vaan - Here this one is just singing
Vaikka pitäis mennä nukkumaan - Even though it's time to sleep
Mut aika on huijari, pelkkä haamu - But time is a cheater, only a ghost
Tääl voi olla yö, mut tuol jossain on aamu - It might be a night here, but somewhere it's morning
Siellä heräilen parhaillaan - I'm just about to wake up there
Nää sävelet ilmassa soi yksinään - these melodies fly alone in the air
Ei niistä kiinnostu yksikään - and absolutely no one cares
Kuluvat sekunnit mua säestää - the passing seconds are accompaning me
Tää hetki on mun, jo nukkuvat muut - This moment is mine, others already sleep
Talo ja taivas ja piha ja puut - The house and the sky and the yard and the trees
En vois pyytää enempää - I couldn't ask for more
Mut hetken kestää hetki vaan - But a moment lasts only for a moment
Se on ohi ennen kuin huomaatkaan - It's gone before you know it
this is a landscape of my city Whangarei in New Zealand.....or how I like to see it. The landscape is the treasure of my city.
