La Souris

So, last year I created an animation, William Kentridge style, using pencil, blue tack and pieces of text on paper. It's about a mouse (made of lines), and a cat (made of text), and their jolly meeting one day, all to the tune of Terk in Amerika, by Clozet Klezmer (used with permission). It took two and a half days of solid drawing - all for under a minute's worth of animation - but it was so worth it! And I am very, very excited to be finally able to put it up on the web, not using you-tube. Do enjoy.

A blogging beginning

I've just started a blog! How very exciting! :) 
I suppose the impetus for such an act could partly be attributed to my involvement with the COFA spring fair today, which was a lot of fun. I got a job working in my studio space all day - working on my own projects and talking about my own work! (and the excellent courses and opportunities that COFA offers of course, as it was their open day.)
Anyway, during the course of the day the importance of having a website or at least a public space where people could view some of my work was highlighted. So, while the website part won't happen for at least a little bit longer, I thought that I might as well start something now! And hence this blog.
