New name, new website and father to be. Welcome to

Feels good to be showcasing my work, and knowledge on the web.

Welcome everyone

Most of you won’t know me, and some might know me as Jose Lopes and others as Harvey Newman, a bit confusing I know, let me start by explaining in the shortest way about my name change.

My name used to be Jose Lopes and after dwelling about it for quite a few years, I’ve changed my name legally this year, due to a complicated background and family issues (long story).

This new website marks the start of a new chapter in my personal and artistic career.

I am an Animator/Illustrator with quite a few years of experience on both fields, and as such I’d like to share my findings, as well as my views and experiences as I go. And perhaps even shed a little light for aspiring animators out there.

This website and future digital content is my attempt to amalgamate all my artistic endeavors on one platform as well as my personal favorites and tastes.

This year also marks the year that I will become a Dad, my daughter (God willing) will be born later this month 26th of August (if we go by what the doctors are saying). And this has given me a renewed determination and a true sense that life is short and is time to get going on all those ideas that I’ve kept in my head and put myself out there.

So this year has been a crazy rollercoaster ride, and it seems that it can only get better, or so I hope.

So without further ado, I give you…. I hope you guys enjoy the ride, as I intend to put as much work as I can, in making this website as good as I can make it.

Keep it humble, keep it fresh.

Harvey Newman signing out.
