Paper cut kitty: Weekend work in progress

I’ve been working on a fun piece based on one of my cats. I’m about halfway there. Here are a few pics.

I also make art. You can things with my designs on at my shop here. Could even treat yourself if you wanted to. Just saying.

Weekend work in progress

I’ve been working on an animation for my documentary that involves some figures playing poker. Here’s a quick peek at one of the work in progress images.

I planned for the hands to be more of a mint green but didn’t have the right paper. But I think this shade works fine – I’m pretty happy with them.

Weekend work in progress: animated sections for my Doc

Here is a little extract from a documentary I have been working on for a long time now. I’ve been experimenting with different forms of animation and this one is pretty simple compared to some of the other things I am thinking about, but actually I think it looks really nice and clean. It could probably do with a few tweaks around speed and that kind of thing, but mostly this one has come together quite nicely.

Would love to hear any comments/ feedback.

I’m ill, hopefully back up to speed next week…

I’ve not posted very much for the last few weeks as it was Christmas and since then I’ve been ill at home. On the run up to Christmas I was actually being quite careful to take care of my self, going to the gym and eating well, but I think it was a bit a a too little too late situation – for lots of us last year was quite a slog. At the moment I’m concentrating in just doing what my body seems to want – lots of sleep, watching trashy telly and eating good food. I have been very fortunate to have my boyfriend looking after me.

However, I did manage to finish the Christmas presents I was making before Christmas in time to hand them out at the appropriate time. Here is one of them below, minus it’s frame as the reflection off the glass made it difficult to take a photo. What do you think?

Animation, finally finished

I have been working on this little animation for what feels like forever. It is a short excerpt from a documentary that I am working on which will eventually feature animated sequences alongside filmed footage.

I’ve had to re-start it several times because of mistakes I made when I set it up, and through getting my head round how to combine my paper cut art work with digital animation and film making soft ware. It has been a real trial and error journey to get to this.

If you have time please have a look and let me know what you think. The film is just over 30 seconds long so short enough for a quick peek. I would love to know what people think about this.

New work: Time to get wobbly.

I’ve just added a new work to Redbubble. I was trying for something irreverent and funny. Possibly suitable for festive times. At the same time I tried to keep it simple.

What do you think? I had made the paper-cut champaign bottle and glasses some time ago for an animation I did that really didn’t work that well. It’s nice to see them have a bit of a new life in this design. It’s a tangible reminder that things can go wrong, or not work out, but in creative work none of those efforts are really a waste. Some part of that experience, sometimes even the bits of work them selves that didn’t quite work the first time, can be useful in some other project later down the line.

Things with this thing on available here.
