Our Picture Post

In a bid to create more work my friend, Beth Carson, and I have set up a whole new blog for a drawing project!
In this we create a piece of art on a piece of card the same size as a trading card and post it to each other every Tuesday.  Come Wednesday we receive our post.  This is not a new phenomenon.  It has come from USA and is called ATC (Artists Trading Cards).  Much like those pannini sticker books you get... Collect them all!

So in order to document our work and show the world our ideas we have our blog:

So come and see it and see what we come up with each week. xx

Hiroshima 2010

The good people of the distinguished Hiroshima Animation Festival have sent me a surprise package in the post.  In it I received a certificate for having my film, Everybody, screened in the festival and a brochure of what went on there too.
I have only once been to the festival in 2008 and it was a blast, I am sad that I did not go again this year, but hopefully for the next one (in 2012) I will have another film made so that I can have the opportunity to attend again.
Thanks for the lovely post Hiroshima!

Pretend birds

Whilst in the Highlands last week, watching deer and stags, sheep and dolphins, walking in the rolling hills and stepping over streams I decided to get the watercolours out and have a play.
This is the outcome. Enjoy! x

BAA Kids DVD Vol. 1 and Vol. 2

Hello all!
Sorry for the radio silence, but things have been a bit crazy with me.
I am writing now to alert you to the LAUNCH of "Box of Delights" Volumes 1 & 2 a collection of short animated films for kids from the British Animation Awards.
More importantly, however, is that the cover illustration and design was by yours truly.

So feast your eyes on this and if you would like it to look pretty on your shelf it can be purchased here.
