'Toon' -  Animated Series

2021 - Current
Blender / Procreate IOS / Adobe Creative Cloud

"An alien named Toon did unforgivable things in their past, and now must face the harm he has committed."

T00N is an animated project created by myself. The series explores multiple mediums & animation techniques, including non-visual mediums such as prose.

The series follows an alien named Toon who is forced to confront their reckless youth by his old victims, the Men In Black.  

3D Models, illustrations, scripts, editing & the majority of the voice acting were designed & created by myself. In addition, I created promotional material such as posters, and behind-the-scenes materials.

Merchandise is available on Redbubble.com, with designs curated myself.

(Above) Characters featured in the series | The series is not obligated to either Science Fiction or Fantasy. Characters evoke or are directly inspired by myth, real-world accounts of extraterrestrial life, and gothic fiction; this series nests the post-modern new weird movement.  Embrace your oddities.

(Above) Screenshots from across the series | The creative project is a hybridisation of video footage, 2d & 3d animation. Typically, characters are 2D whilst sets and other elements are constructed in Blender. Attempts are made to unify the contrasting mediums, or purposefully contrasted for narrative purposes.

Logos from the Series | The series features many strange & alien locations. To signify locations of importance, unique logos help characterise them.

Hadas Font | A custom typeface is used to signify the language of the Alien Hadas & Mermaids. It is featured on Hadas technology, or as subtitles whenever they speak.

Aspect Murals | Many assets develop the universe of T00N through visual storytelling. Featured here are ‘the Aspects,’ entities not directly referenced in the narrative, beyond small cameos. 

Symbols | A diverse range of logos and icons were created to develop the universe of T00N.

(Above) Blender to AfterEffects Workflow | Textures are typically created via Blender's procedural materials unless specific or unique details are required. Exports are then edited in AfterEffects, adding film grain and chromatic aberration to simulate vintage film cameras.
