Colonel Chicken

First attempt at Colonel Chicken, I think there will need to be some more shading and a re-look at the colours, but I'm hopeful.

Co Lab

I did a watercolour of an illustration done by me boyfriend Rhys. Yes, Square is spelt wrong in both images. We draw things, you can't expect us to be able to spell as well. Eep.

Holland and Barrett, penny sale yeah

The Penny Sale animation for Holland and Barrett, which was the animation in between the last two ads. I was able to animate up some dusting birds, growing flowers and hoovering squirrels!! This lovely animation produced by Mel Venet at Picasso Pictures was directed by Steve Lenton and animated on by Alex Smith, Linda Kalcov, Jim Farfan and comped by Tony Comley.

Here's a little animation of a Chipmunk mopping that got cut from the final at the last minute, but I thought I'd let it see the light of day on here.

Flora Pro Activ

An animation I worked on at Th1ng, under the wonderful direction of Chris Cray - I was whisked away at the end to another job, so there are amendments that have happened since I worked on the animation. But thnakfully me pepper, calendar, scale and clipboard animations will still kept in! *sigh of relief*

Here's just a little clip of the extended version of the calendar:

The good life

Just thought, despite being a while ago I'd post up the Holland and Barrett TV advert I worked on a while ago. There are three more to come, so keep an eye out on TV and I shall post them up soon when they're online.

Bang! Pff! Smoke!

My first proper time animating explosions. Well it's a start at least.

Magazine Doodles

So a couple of weeks ago (or however longs it's been, time has been flying by of late) I went to Pick Me Up, a graphic and illustration exhibition at Somerset House. An artist from whom I bought a print from was the talented Hatti Stewart, how illustration work on display mainly consisted of her doctored magazine images. Stewart has a real talent for distorting known images into something far more interesting that they were initially, taking the everyday image of a beautiful woman posing seductively for the camera, Stewart transforms the image into something far more stand out - using patterns, text and big eyes reminiscent of early Mickey mouse disney cartoons.

There is a lot more to Stewarts work than doodling on magazines, I would definitely recommend having a look on her website at all the lovely things she produces. Treat for the eyes.

I thought I might try my hand at it when I was passed a Stylist on the way to the overground, it turns out however, that I don't have a natural talent for this. It's actually a lot harder than it looks. For some reason I ended up turning all the woman I came across in the pages as tattooed crack dealers. Not ideal.

Name a scary penguin

I've been putting Penguin bars in my lunch box, so I though it was high time I animated one of their jokes.
Drawing by hand in ink, and coloured in Photoshop.
