Back to basics

My job doesn't require me to draw every day. So for the last 5 years, short of a quick sketch, my drawing muscles have slowly been withering. 

This month I'll camp out on Exhibition Sreet and draw until my hand falls off. Or my Illustration mojo finds me again.

Must remember to take more pictures

Autumnal Updates

I haven't posted in a good few months owed to a flurry of lovely jobs and fun makes from great designers. Quick highlights include:

A papery job recreating recognisable weekly TV highlights, reenacted by children and set on a small stage. These were the concept sketches.

Big Brother
Bear Grylls
The Hairy Bikers
X (xxs) Factor

Some little propellers, snack-box a jungle jeep and midnight set dressing for Nexus.

A post from months ago which I forgot to post.

An incredibly exciting few months having worked in Set Dec on the latest live action Disney remake, of Beauty & the Beast. // Prod des: Sarah Greenwood Set Dec: Katie Spencer

I also worked on my new car.
I went to this exhibition at the Tate. A hero of mine. And visited the Wallace Collection. Go to both.

I made this.

For the lover of all things small. And burritos.

I've actually been really busy this month... but amongst other things, I discovered this:

HAMSTER EATING TINY BURRITO...and other such delights.

I'm a year late, but the music is fabulous and the joy is great.

Spring Things

Another busy couple of months making papery delights and working with new fabulous designers James Hatt and Tom Gander. Also managed to squeeze in a little more Louis Vuitton model-making AND revamp my tool kit. Not bad. 

May, I'm coming for you...

Whisper Stills

Whisper, a short film which I'm pleased to have been a part of has now been completed and is ready for festival entry. What a lovely film, cast and crew.

"If it's not Baroque, don't fix it!" Cogsworth, Beauty and the Beast

Disney's new live-action feature, a remake of the 1991 Oscar winner 'Beauty and the Beast', is currently in production in the UK. As a little girl of the 80's, I'm barely containing my excitement. 

The animated version is set in France, at a time when extravagant asymmetrical garlands, gold gilded mouldings, ornate wood veneers and over-flourished porcelain was all the rage. (If you could afford the craft, and spare the hall space.) 

All but subtle, it was opulence to it's most vulgar degree during the 1600-1700's. And I LOVE it. 

I had a day off, so I popped to the V&A Museum to loosen up my rusty drawing, heading towards the Rococo gallery...
