Blinc 2013

I'm collaborating with dancer Alys Hughes again for this year's Blinc Digital Arts festival, which takes place on the 25th - 26th of October. The theme this year is Action / Reaction and we are devising a dance, sound and animation piece which aims to highlight Welsh culture, language and freedom of expression.

For this project we are also enlisting the talented input of Afal Drwg Efa, Casi Wyn (TBC) and ironworks / crychddwr studios. 

We were so proud of last year's performance and felt it had the potential to go further, so being part of Blinc 2013 is a great chance for this to happen. Watch for more updates!

A new term begins!

I'm excited to say I'll be trundling back off to Cambridge tomorrow, to run another term of the Illustration for Picture Books course at Hills Road Sixth Form College. There are ten splendid weeks in store, of drawing,  picture-making, dreaming up ideas and stories, and making books. I'm looking forward to meeting the new students and seeing what wonderful ideas they come up with!

Now Will You Listen: Furry People - this Sunday!

This Sunday an eerie collection of stories will be read aloud at the Lantern Theatre in Sheffield, as part of Sensoria Festival. It looks like a fantastically spooky line-up, narrators including the likes of Richard Hawley, Reese Shearsmith and many more.

I've made an animation as a backdrop to 'Furry People', written by Michael Ward and read by Julie Ellis. It's a story about a pet shop, where the owner has a bit of a peculiar secret...and that's all I can tell you. You'll have to see it to find out!

Nick Edward Harris - The Flood

A couple of months back I had the great pleasure of making a music video for one Nick Edward Harris, and his beautiful song 'The Flood'. Here is the finished film. It is out now and available to download as a single / video / b-side; find it, along with other treasures, on his website.
