Elliot's Zoo Short

Elliot's Zoo from Dave Needham on Vimeo.

Here's a short film I directed when I worked at the Cartoon Network's European Development Studio. This was made late 2009, and I went on to make a full length animatic based on this idea. 6 short pilots were made that year, but none of them were ever aired or put up on the web.

Now i've left CNW, I can finally show it to people! A big thank-you to everyone who worked on the project, including - Tim Bjorklund, Kwok Fung-Lam, Rich Wake, Matt Layzell and Lee Gingold

3D Art Book

I was asked by Tristan Eaton to contribute a piece for his 3D Art Book project.
Tristan is the founder and creative director of Thunderdog Studio's, and the designer behind the Dunny and Munny vinyl toys. There's work by 100 artists from Jon Burgerman to Shepard Fairey all turned into retro 3D - the type you need the red and blue glasses for, and it's just gone on pre-order at Amazon.

Fortean Times

Here's a cover I did toward the end of last year for Fortean Times Magazine. Nice chance to do some photomontage of an old haunted house.

This is a print I designed for an exhibition up at Leeds Metropolitan University last March. The theme was 'Survive', and the exhibition was to support a conference on making a living out of illustration.
