Almost finished the rigging of Jim (cartoon version with stretchy joints). Looking forward to create a basic environment and take him for a walk!
Just started a new experimental hand drawn animation (the 2nd one in line). The animation will be dealing with the way Glaswegian women deal with the subject of romantic love. There will be a voice over of different women talking about their experience in juxtaposition with the artist's personal experience and voice evident in the drawings. It will be a project about balances and imbalances, about the personal and the public, about longing and fear, about love...The drawings will be sketchy yet dynamic, bursting with colour and textures. They will be following a woman's symbolic path to love. Below is a first test of a sketchy walk. I am happy with the general quality but this is only 8 drawings and the initial sketch phase rather than the actual end-project in process.
*This is an A-N funded project.
