Pardon me... I think I mixed-up the captions above :)

Great Drawings!

Thanks! I made them both on the same day, would you believe. I was just having fun trying two completely different styles.

Would the "cute" drawing have anything to do with your horror film? The background looks brilliant on it.
Can we the people see your first horror flick or if not a snippit?

Also I'd take the Thom Yorke comparison as a compliment if I weren't a bit of a Radiohead snob. Though I must say that their new album ain't that bad ;)

The first one makes me happy... the second one is horrifying, it's just terrible, it's pure E-V-I-L!!!!

No, but it was indeed inspired by a film (a great silent classic). Regarding my horror movie... the first one was a group effort at the movie school (I was the storyboarder, assistant director, editor and also did the sound post-production). It's more a comedy than horror, because we didn't have enough money to film the whole script, just the first half. It's quite funny, but I prefer not to share it with the rest of the world at the moment :)
The second movie is in the planning stage (I'm working on storyboard now), and it's going to be quite ambitious and experimental. This time, it's just three of us doing the film (all the class has been divided into the smaller groups) and it should be finished by late September. I'll keep you informed about its progress.

Yes, 'Nosferatu', whilst I was at animation/film school I went to a screening of it where a live band played a soundtrack to it, quite awesome.
As I recall there's a werewolf in it, which was actually a hienna with some more hair stuck on it?
I remember laughing at that, pure genius! Probably back in the day most people may not have had seen one and shit themselves.

Looking forward to the progress!

whuh? what nosferatu did you see?

Hey Jack, the old silent one.
It's when the dude reaches the village in Transilvania and there's the mention of 'monsters, goblins and such I think? And 'werewolfs'. Then, it's obviously filmed in a zoo, a hienna for all of maybe 3seconds is standing there and then runs of down a track through the shruberage.
Go back and watch, you'll see.
