iPhone 4 Stuff!

Hey everyone!

Yes I got myself a new iPhone. I haven't had one since the original one came out 4 years ago, so I thought it was time for an upgrade.

So, I have decided to make a few backgrounds, made from my posters, for all you swanky new iPhone 4 users! You can still use these on other iPhones too. I will be updating this with more as I get them finished off. Hope you like them! And let me know if you use them.

Just click the poster, then press and hold the enlarged image, then click save image. You can then go to your settings and change the background from there :)

News! Bits from all over the Internet!


My Poster Blog has been growing in popularity over the last month or so, riding mostly on the crest of the Lost Finale, I had every Lost related Tumblr re-blogging my 3 Lost posters. So thanks everyone who "liked" it and re-blogged them. Hopefully I will be uploading more soon!
Also on the note of posters, I have made some rather swish looking Oddworld Posters! I have so far made one for Abe's Oddysee and one for Abes Exoddus and another Soulstorm Brewery one, shown below. I happened to also post them on the Oddworld Forum, see what the Oddworld community had to say about them HERE.

Short Films!

After shooting Hunter with Ollie this weekend we are more than on track getting Hewitt and Walker finished. But on another note, after doing a quick search online for our films, one inperticular, called First Date, was featured on some persons blog! check out First Date on there if you haven't seen it already, and see his other collection of pictures, films and poems HERE

The Pixar Talk Says Hello!

Recently me and Ollie went to a Car Boot sale. Upon browsing some of the stalls I found an original Fisher Price Chatter Telephone, as featured in Toy Story 3.What made the photo brilliant was the couple in the background, looking at disbelief at what I was buying.

After Tweeting it to several Pixar Blogs I got a reply from @PixarTalk saying:

PixarTalk @ameba2k that is an awesome photo!

Hunter! Filming a Grindhouse Trailer

We are (again) wrapped up filming Hewitt and Walker. And given ourselves a deadline of the end of the month to get it all finished. I can't wait to get it out there and get people watching it! I really hope everyone likes it!

Yesterday me and Ollie filmed our last grindhouse trailer, called Hunter. A story of two Vietnam prisoners of war who escape their captors. Only to find something more horrifying than they could have imagined waiting for them in the jungle...

This was our first proper film shot on Ollies brand new camera. And we were very excited to be shooting in full 1080p HD! We got some shots that would never have been possible on Ollies old camera, and the quality is just amazing! Here are some screenshots taken from some of the footage gone through so far, click to see in High Resolution...

Also feel free to go and check out Ollies Blog for more beautiful high res screenshots, his thoughts on the film and other projects he is working on! His website is here too.

Was a brilliant day filming, the weather held out and hopefully it looks more like Vietnam than a chicken shed in Yorkshire.

Jamie Smart Stuffs!

Around 5 years ago, I was taken on a shopping trip to Leeds with a friend of mine, and she made me buy this comic, called Bear. Ever since buying that issue (and the other 9 issues), they have completely turned around what I wanted to do with my life, and inspired me to create the design work I do today. And more importantly, to keep drawing. I have been a huge Jamie Smart fan from then on.

If you remember a few months ago, In my spare time I went ahead and made some Looshkin related content in Touch Designer, Starting with a Looshkin clock and climaxing with an interactive Looshkin. I sent him the links and he was kind enough to get back in touch! He told me he really liked my designs and that he will feature me in his blog sometime.

A few months later and on his blog he does a fantastic feature on my work! For those who can't wait to see what he said about me, here is some of it...

"So there’s this guy called Jonny Eveson, and by all accounts he’s a bit of a demon with graphic-nobbery (i’m not sure the correct technical term, though that’s probably close?). He showed me some of the things he’s been doing with Looshkin as testers recently (we’ve also been talking about working on something together), all of which you can see on his youtube channel HERE. From rotating heads to Looshkin clocks, he’s quite the inventor!"

-Jamie Smart

Its amazing that he will give my work the time of day, let alone actually liking anything I produce. I look forward to working with Jamie in the future, making something fantastic, as only he can.
