Time has gone far to quickly and it’s now almost a month since my last post – here are the latest progress on my creative productions !
no 1 and the main project of the last year is ‘brink’ my part live action , part stop motion film I’ve been working on the last nearly 2 years ( along side full time work ) and is very close to completion. This month I have mainly been working on the set and props side of things making backgrounds and scenes, and mapping out walk/run cycles on set for my crab and llama based creatures. I’ve also made some new replacement flames as I want nice shinny new ones for the real thing rather than the crumpled remains of the ones I used for the tests.
My bunting has now been finished and was just in time for my grans 90th birthday party last weekend and it looked great and went down a treat –
I was also in charge of decorating the cake which I had great fun doing and was loved by my Gran
my new knitting project is a Tardis style jumper – I’m not actually knitting the jumper just the white squares ( windows that will go onto the jumper to ( hopefully ) make it Tardis like
drawing – two weeks ago a rare occurrence happened where not only did I have a Saturday off work but it was sunny too ! so I did whatever a good artist should on an occasion like this I took my sketchbook and went off for the day sketching – I filled another place in my 642 things to draw book and I also did some pen and ink drawing of some of the scenes around the Bristol docks
That pretty much somes up this months creative activities , the next couple of weeks is looking very busy but I will be updating as much as possible and hopefully with some exciting reports of a successful animation I’m running for a youth group at the end of this week. Farewell for now !
