Skwigly Banner July 2014

I did a new banner for Skwigly this month. Look it moves. Oooooo!


Inspired by my home town (were I'm currently residing before my next job starts in sept). Every local artist has drawn the lighthouse at Portland Bill, this is the closest I'm getting! 

Giving a Talk at Wilderness festival

I'm going to be giving a talk in association with Lost Lectures in August at the Wilderness Festival in Oxford, it's going to be about sexuality in animation, if you can come along it's going to be fab!


Difficulty in the festivals.

A year has passed since I sent my film out into the world for its film festival cycle, with another year still in him I feel this would be a great opportunity to update you on his progress. 

Difficulty's first outing was in Cambridge at the Arts Picture House cinema as part of my degree show, closely followed by it's first international screening in Breda, in the Netherlands.

The film enjoyed quite a nice run in London, being screened at the Barbican as part of the Frame film festival as well as Tricycle theatre-  Takeover Festival and at the launch Party for Animated Woman UK at the MPC Building. 


At the MPC- for the Animated woman Uk Launch

My companion to the screening, fellow animator Erika Lewis 
A Screening in May at the 5th Golden Kuker - Sofia was a nice serprise...i only recently discovered i'd been screened at all.


And a Lovely little screening at The London Animation Club hosted by Martin Pickle. 


I'm hoping for a few more screening before relaxing it online Later this year.

Love, Lust and Libido: animated short films about love, sex and relationships.

Myself and independent animator Ben Mitchel have curated a screening of adult animated shorts, the films stem from a conversation we had when we first met about the possibility of more explicit subject manners in animation being more accessible and easier to discuss. As well as being engaging and often funny erotica in animation is a juxtapositionn of what is normally considered a child friendly medium. We aim to change that haha. 

The event in association with Skwigly online animation Magazine will be held in Bristol with CineMe.
Book your ticket here.



The wonderful Marcelo Cervone ( musician and composer for my film Difficulty) has put my film up on his website and gives a short account of working with my self. Check out his site and indeed his impressive work, he is a busy fella. 

His music made my film, the soundscape he made was hark back to every stop-motion film i loved from my childhood whilst still being utterly orginal. He was a pleasure to work with, and his personal character and attitude is a joy to experience!
