You have just got to watch this… Stunning animation (and of course the fact that it uses paper delights me). Mesmerising! “Shugo Tokumaru – “Katachi” (Official Music Video)” on YouTube

I know days like that!

Rather delicious working around the problem, that really is my process… it’s always the events around the main stage that unravels the brain. Doodles are most definitely my most effective tool and my most effective time waster!

So found this wonderfully rich animation that illustrates the point, excuse the pun!

Olympic diversion…

Ok, so it’s been way too long away from the computer, the studio and all that is creative. I have been busy with my other hat on (coach driving) and getting the necessary pennies rolling in that doesn’t come so readily from my creative pursuits. On the plus side, I have been very caught up in the Olympic buzz with multiple trips back and forth to the Olympic Park, and surprised myself as to how much I am enjoying it and more specifically the upbeat mood that I am encountering with all the spectators.

Having a day of rest, I am able to reacquaint myself with some creative inspirations… this one I just had to share… most delicious!

And more stop motion…

I’m am so fixated by stop motion at the moment, and wonder if I should be paying more attention to this… perhaps dusting the cobwebs away from the camera and re- investigate my own practice in this field should be explored… ahhh, if only time would allow right now (and of course ability)!

Check out this amazing work from the clever stable that is Aardman with the incredible sand artists from sandinyoureye

More Stop Motion

I always find a draw towards stop motion animation. It might be that I use this alot in my educational practice and the wonder and magic of seeing objects ‘come to life’ never  fails to be lost on the wonderful young people I work alongside. That kind of delight is infectious.

Just found this one… delicious if not a bitter sweet outcome.



Let Yourself Feel…

…relaxed, sublime, refreshed… just a couple of words that spring to mind when watching this. I now feel ready to walk away from the day that was and look forward to the day that could be. Delicious!
