Happy New Year!

Oooops! A bit late with the New Year's greetings. Been a bit hectic with moving our studio pixel by pixel. We also got transported to Atlantis for a bit by the amazing Pepe Deluxe and couldn't escape until we'd help finish this trailer...

Dub of A Preacherman

Yes! We've finished our Epic tale of love and lust amongst the seedy Oxford alleyways for Count Skylarkin and Harvey K-Tel's banging Dub of a Preacherman. It only took us about a weekend or something, yeah. It was well easy.

Hope you all like it! It's probably going to be Christmas Number 1!

You can download the tune from Count Skylarkin's Soundcloud HERE

Just found some old cine reels in the Rumpus vaults. We're busy dusting them off to see what is on them. Not sure, but there might be a whole flippin' music video or somefink.

Rumpus Biscuit of the Day 8

Rumpus Biscuit of the Day 8
SHORTBREAD. Shortbread applied to do some work experience in the studio, but he just spends all day fiddling with his i-phone. And he has one of those stupid bikes with no gears.

Had Grandmaster Wazz from the mystical land of Focus-Pocus pop in to visit the Rumpus studio this morning. He said the work we had done on his game was "Magic!" But he says that a lot.

We've been meaning to work with tip-top illustratorer FonFon for awhile now and when she suggested we entered the E4 Sting competition we jumped at the chance. Yeahhhhhh! Bananas for everybody!

Focus Pocus

Over the last few months Joe and Seb have been busy creating assets for a new game by Roll7 what goes on the computer box and is powered by YOUR BRAIN! As a special treat for working so hard they were allowed to make a fun little trailer. Watch out, though, it's catchy!

Biscuit of the Day 5

Rumpus Biscuit of the Day 5
DIGESTIVE - Lead storyboard artist at Rumpus HQ. Seems quiet at first, but very funny once you get to know him. Tends to get a bit soppy at tea breaks though.

We met Matthew the Horse in a field and gave him some biscuits. He told us some stories. We made a movie together... it's all true, apparently

Sort of time lapse drawingy stuff.

Seb had to go to London the other day and do some drawing at a big fancy agency. He came home in tears saying everyone had an iphone and shinier shoes than him.

A right pair of mugs

Rumpus have just moved into their fancy new offices in the heart of sunny Bristol. To honour this glorious occassion we had crafted some special commemorative mugs. These delightful drinking vessels each come with their very own handles and even a hole in the top to put stuff in. Belter! Email me if you want one, yeah?

Shhhh! Top Secret!

I was hunting for Seb's biscuit stash this morning when I found some fantastic drawings of macical-mystical-explorer-dudes. It looks like one of the amazingly brilliant ideas on Seb's list might be starting soon. Joe and Seb are certainly very excited today.
Now, where are those Jammy Dodgers?

Rumpus Animation is GO!

After what seems like years of waiting for the perfect moment, Joe and Seb have decided to officially start Rumpus Animation in the middle of a recession. That's right, our keen animation brains don't worry about downturns in global economics. We use LOVE to make our cartoons here at Rumpus and as long as we have each other that will never run out. (Provided our wives don't find out.)
The new website is up and running and Seb has a list of about 6 amazingly brilliant ideas that they are going to be working on over the next couple of months. Plus I have more bananas than you can shake a chimp at. Everything is FLIPPING AMAZING at Rumpus Towers.
