I have been wondering if its possible to do storyboards on a graphics tablet, I am interested in making my graphic novel type illustrations on the computer.
Storyboard for potential sci fi themed animation
The story is about how the subject is kidnapped from his mother and taken to be tested on and used as an involuntary subject for a new potential scientific break through of alienating cancerous cells with a semi organic bio chip which is injected into the bloodstream and once activated, using white blood cells and other organic matter to construct practically invisible and flexible mesh shields...
Back to sci fi themed project
I have been doing some preliminary sketches for a story board/ graphic novel. first two are just doodles A man wakes up in a laboratory to find his arms missing.They have been replaced with needle sharp, articulated limbs capable of killing. A bio semi organic microchip placed into an involuntary subject at birth has remained dormant throughout his life, till one day the chip reacts and...
Short therapy project
Here are the paintings I created whilst I was being looked after by Crisis Point in Levenshume.They provided me with a lot of art materials and encourage me to focus on using them as an emotional release opposed to my “previous” methods. this painting was based on a reoccurring nightmare that refused to go away. In the dream i would look into a blue watery surface and a monstrous...
2 and a half weeks I have been unable to update or concentrate on previous work due to unforeseen personal circumstances.
KatzKausenship Space motion project!
I have recently become really interested in science fiction as a genre in film and books. The idea for the new animation is to make a short film including 2 aliens who come to earth to infiltrate the earth in the form of cats and use mind control techniques to access the humans weaknesses!
I have been looking at my old toys from child hood and I have been wondering how i can work them into a project????
Feedback for Vos Duivel
The feedback I received off my peers and tutor was extremely confidence boosting and made me want to continue doing my stop frame animations but maybe not focus so much on model making anymore..
3rd final day of filming Vos Duivel
The animation will be debuted tomorrow on tumblr
Finished the Vos Duivel set and models!
Finally I have completed everything ready for filming, heres one of the foxes onset!
Devil (Duivel created)
It was difficult to get a good picture of him but his body has been made out of wire and masking tape then covered in red plasticine and scratched to give a rough edge to the model.He unfortunately is not very flexible and Im worried he will fall to bits during the filming :(
Still building the set
Struggling slightly with how to get the set well lit enough so I have made a moon for the back of the set which is just a hole covered in tracing paper to give it a milky type translucent effect. Then I will shine a light through this and it should provide adequate lighting for filming.
Vos duivel animation set in the making
I am currently creating the set for the foxes to run about on Using lots of materials I found outdoors for this set including bits of cut up grass!
Fox models completed!
I have made a big fox and a little fox for the animation. I constructed them out of chunks of balsa wood and stuck wire in with glue so the joints could move about. I used a thick acrylic paint layer to get the initial browny red colour and then my boyfriend kindly donated some of his own hair to create a fur like surface which actually looked quite good once it had dried! Here they are
Dream Animation. Fox and Devil (Vos Duivel)
I have in the works currently a dream based animation based around a nightmare I had the other night.It involved two foxes who were eating pills and a horribly disfigured demon type entity that frightenend the two foxes, I’m going to make an animation out of this, i think it has a lot of potential.So i wil begin my modelmaking of the foxes this afternoon.
Magazine collages book
I have started using old magazines to create collages which could be used as backgrounds or stand alone pieces in a video? Here are some of the ones I have made so far. (front cover)
Cut and paste book potential?
I was thinking of maybe producing a book of my collages
Cut n Paste Project more images
A the moment Im making a book of these torn up paper pictures to use for an animation at some point
Cut n Paste Project
I have this idea to make collage type animations using bits of ripped up paper from newspapers, magazines or any kind of paper really… heres one i made earlier!
My anchor to this world Is just a pillow Dreams scarce I only hold on to feel rooted Secure Not alone And most importantly of all Sane.
The tales of Monty Mouse
Still trying to work on my story telling skills so I’ve created a character to start with and last night I ended working from one of my illustrations of Monty and managed to sew a lovely big plush toy version of him trying to make his character a physical thing to develop stories from which is why in my opinion something you can hold and move about is more versatile than an illustration,...
Site project idea- Bicycle rack animation
So I’ve got what I think is a pretty good idea for my first project that’s been set this term. Basically reading through the brief we were given it suggests that you choose a space within the confines of the All saint campus so I have decided to choose the bike racks near the Chatham building, from now till monday I am going to take photos periodically and arrange the photos into a...

The tiger who came to tea →
Childrens illustrator and author Judith Kerr is one of my biggest heroines! A “tiger who came to tea” animation is still a pipeline dream but maybe after the site project I could give it a go?watch this space.
Shelter project animation nearly finished
I am proud to announce that I will be finishing the animation shortly and debuting it on tumblr for its first performance!. Even though the animation I have made so far is very short I think It would be more complicated in such a short space of time to lengthen it any further..
I ‘ve just done some screen tests to see what the set looks like on camera and it actually looks quite genuine compared to when your not looking at it behind the lense! This is a happy accident indeed!
Shelter Project animation has begun!
I have begun filming my short animation, it will be very very short as the message in the animation is very simple “Leave places how you found them!” and the idea so far is to have the tipi frame work tiptoe like a human being onto the set and the canvas covering to follow it and for it to set itself up, i think im only going to use two of the models I’ve made as I think three...
Shelter Project tipis are finished!
After an extremely late night getting deeply involved with making up the miniature tipis for the set (which is now dry!) I added the final touches this morning (the pictures on the tipis) So here is the finished set and models, all ready for animating! I added some rocks and gravel as well!
Shelter Project (Set finished)
Its taken two days but the set has nearly been completed. For future reference, polystrene is an excellent idea for set use as you can cut it to desired shape very easily, paint can go on quite thickly without looking “overdone”. Watered down acrylic was useless so concentrated acrylic was applied and I managed to get a dense opaque colour which matched the colour swatches I had set...
Shelter Project so far....
Today I have been foraging for materials for set building as I have decided I want to make as short animation highlighting the eco friendly benefits of nomadic type structures. In the skip I found a hug chunk of polystyrene which I am going to use as a base for my set so I can stick twigs in which should look like trees once I ‘ve decorated them a bit more.I’ve also collected a load...
We have been set our first project of the year and the theme is “Shelter” I have several ideas for this already after doing a mind map with my peers and the one im most interested in is nomadic types of shelter: A short animation involving tents or tipi’s A giant modernized tipi (installation art) A medium sied tipi which the audience can climb into and watch an animation on ...

In my shopping basket : Herbal teas Various pastes Rice cakes Options hot chocolates Tins of soup Milk Weight watchers bread Linda McCartney vegetarian sausages .
