Moonhead and The Music Machine


My debut Graphic Novel "Moonhead and the Music Machine" published by Nobrow is out now. "Meet Joey Moonhead. A normal kid in every way.  Except one… He has a moon for a head". You can see more and buy the book on the Nobrow site.

"The visual humor and ambiguity are just delightful." Cory Doctorow Boing Boing

"...with all the psychedelic colours, triumphing of the underdog and dream-like illustrations, the book, as well as the music machine, is truly magical." Emily Gosling Design Week

"An imaginative and visually poetic take on the stock American high school drama, Moonhead is a subtle blend between Wayne’s World and Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Andrew Rae’s graphic novel is enriching and powerfully illustrated." Nobrow

...and here's a short film about it:

How We Got To Now



Here is the first glimpse of some of the work we have been creating for the six-part series How We Got To Now. The show is presented by popular American science author Steven Johnson and explores the legacy of great ideas.

We created 6 bespoke title sequences and 73 animated segments on a variety of topics ranging from Hollywood actress Hedy Lamarr's invention of a frequency hopping torpedo to how Boyle's law and the nature of gases led to the invention of artificial refrigeration.

We were tasked with creating narrative sequences and explainer sections within one distinctive style - mixing archive photography with illustrated elements. The resulting collage imagery was created by Luke Best (you can see some of his work in progress images on his blog) and brought to life by a small team of animators over 8 months.

The series is a co-production between PBS and Nutopia and will be broadcast in the Autumn (or the Fall) on PBS in America and on the BBC here in the U.K. We look forward to being able to show more of the work as the transmission date approaches. In the meantime here is a small clip from the episode about Time.
