On the 8 April I will be speaking at See No Evil as well as the very talented Tom Muller. If you are in London you should come along. I’ll be playing the full animated short of ‘The Planets’ and showing for the first time anywhere my new stop motion short ‘Plasticine Rhythm’ as well as some other bits and pieces.
So we’ve reached the end of the Illustrated Aliens Project. I want to thank everyone who has liked & reblogged posts, shared the project and sent nice messages.
Over 16000 people have followed the blog which is beyond my expectations at the start of the project last January. I hope you have enjoyed my animated planetary adventure.
I will be updating this Tumblr with any further news about the Illustrated Aliens and The Planets as I hope to send them to animation festivals this year. But for other, new illustrations and animations from me please follow my Handymartian Tumblr (which the above animated gif is reblogged from) and if you use Twitter I can be found here.
"We had a blast, it couldn’t last, so this is the……….."

Here is the last planet animation, “Planet Twelve”. It features a selection of characters from December’s Illustrated Aliens.

Recap: Planet Eleven
Who’s the biggest fool, the fool or the followers of the fool? The residents of ‘Planet Eleven’ face this question while running.
