In February I ran some animation workshops at the Royal Cambrian Academy in Conwy. I worked with students from Coleg Llandrillo, and helped them to create animated films based on the current exhibition by sculptor Diane Lawrenson. The students were so enthusiastic - I'm excited by the work they made, which will be shown at a follow up exhibition in July.
I'm starting work on a short animation inspired by Lawrenson's beautiful bronze resin sculptures of the Bronte sisters. It's blowing a gale outside at the moment, and my windows are constantly shaking, so it seems highly appropriate to show you the puppet I've been making - of Emily Bronte (who wrote Wuthering Heights. But you knew that!).
Most recently I've been working on some logo designs for my friend Sian's theatre company, 'Stomping Ground'. Here are a few sneaky pictures...still a work in progress.
Hmm...eyes closed. That face is making me sleepy, so I'll bow out for now. More soon.
