A couple of my works have been featured on Tumblr Open Arts, "The official hub for all things Art on Tumblr".
It's been too long since I've made an animation just for the joy of animating. Here's the beginnings of a new project I've been sketching in my spare time over the last 2-3 days.
I love having a project without boundaries, rules or even an aim. I consider this project like a moving sketchbook. I keep going over and adding to it, so one thing you can count on is it will look different next time I post it. Enjoy.
So honoured to have won a prize for my website! Thanks to the great peeps at Weebly :)
Below is an article about me from the Weebly Blog.
MEET THE BEFORE & AFTER CONTEST WINNERS AND SEE HOW THEIR BEST FEATURES WERE CREATED
Benk is a Melbourne-based artist, illustrator and animator. He used a customized version of Birdseye along with the background editor to create a new, visually striking homepage with a greater focus on his artwork. He also used a simplified top navigation design to make it easier for visitors to consume his content on internal pages.
Benk uses a Facebook like button to facilitate social sharing directly from his homepage. This new “How’d They Do That” video walks through the implementation of this feature, which you can apply to the social media website of your choice:
Benk uses his website as a hub for his online presence. He says, “Having my website well coded, good looking and up to date definitely makes a positive impression on clients or anyone who wants to see what I do.”
Previous versions of Benk's website, though well made, felt either like a nightmare to update or too bland. He eventually found the right mix of good design and easy-to-edit content, saying, “I’ve found a good balance. A visually impressive site that’s easy to change around as I need.”
Benk also has some advice for other creative people looking to start their something, “Not everything you do will have monetary gain, but if you keep working hard and getting stuff out there, opportunities will begin to come back to you. Making your website as concise, clear and easy to navigate as possible also helps.”
His advice to fellow entrepreneurs? "The main thing is to keep working at your passion."
