I’ve started on my “daily theme” idea on my IG account and so far it seems to be working pretty good. It makes it a lot easier to post things because I can just search for images matching the theme of the day. Today was “Lightside Tuesday” and I’ve made two animations to celebrate it. Here you are, enjoy πŸ™‚

The image above was taken from an iPhone background and I just made it look more sparkly and shiny and electric πŸ™‚

I collect a lot of the Black Series figurines and it’s actually one of my favourite types of star wars collectable to collect. So the art for these figurines is of course, also pretty up there with some of my favourite star wars art. Gregory Titus is an amazing artist, and his artwork for The Black Series really brings the characters to life.

Speaking of bringing to life, here’s one of Gregory Titus’ pieces for The Black Series, with a little special addition by me πŸ™‚

I’ve been thinking about my Instagram account for a little while and I want to try something different on there going forward. I want to start using “themes” for different days of the week and see how that works for my followers. So this is what I came up with:

MONDAY – DARKSIDE MONDAYΒ  – content from any source but only from the dark side
TUESDAY – LIGHTSIDE TUESDAY – same as above but celebrating the light side
WEDNESDAY – OLD SKOOL WEDNESDAY – posts from the Original Trilogy only
THURSDAY – TOPPS CARD AND COMIC THURSDAY – Followers can vote for the next animation and posts from comic covers and art
FRIDAY – WHO IS THE BADDEST / WHO IS THE COOLEST? Character discussion and comparison with art and maybe my own edits
SATURDAY – COLLECTIBLE AND GAMING SATURDAY – celebrating Star Wars collectables and video games
SUNDAY – RANDOM ART AND FEATURE THE ARTIST DAY – I will pick an artist on IG that focuses on Star Wars art and showcase their art on my blog as well as random posts throughout the day

I’ll try it out and see if it works for my followers and if not, that’s OK at least I gave it a try, right?

And to celebrate the new IG themes here’s an animation I did yesterday picked by my IG followers:

I’m on a mission to try and animate something every other day. Some of the better posts I’ve posted on Pinterest and Instagram are animated motion art. I’m still going to be picky with what I animate (because not every image created looks good with animation) but I want to try and do more of this because I really enjoy it.

Here’s my first comic cover animation – the textless version of Rod Reis’ Darth Maul cover art – I had real fun with this one πŸ™‚
