From tomorrow until the 30th, I'll be working at Sun & Moon Studios here in Bristol! Considering their recent awards success, it's genuinely an honour to be working for them, and I've never been more excited and terrified by anything related to my animation before. This'll be a real challenge - one that I'm looking forwards to tackling head on.
So, Friday's "This is Normal" comic related to the 'Green surge', particularly relating to the membership numbers that have been coming out since the 14th as the Greens Party's membership rocketed past that off UKIP and the Lib Dems.
I posted the comic to Twitter and sent it to the Twitter accounts of the Green Party of England and Wales, and their leader, Natalie Bennett. Natalie retweeted it, and I've been getting notifications about retweets, replies and favourites for the last 3 days.
So in the last week, I've been paid to create a short animated loop for the unicorn character belonging to an online client.
Weebly's being weird about animated GIFs, so if you're on mobile or tablet, my apologies if this doesn't play/load.
I've been commissioned by the Senior Lecturer of Social Work at the University of Northampton to illustrate the chapter headers in a textbook that they're in the process of writing and editing. The deadline is extremely lax, which means this is perfect to fit around my current semester at UWE.
Here's some of the headers so far:
So, to kick off the New Year with a creative twist, I decided to get myself back into the swing of animation after the holiday by animating the second TiN of 2015. Seeing as how my site can't seem to handle a simple GIF image, check out the animation here instead!
