It was a rather painful process towards the end and I've discovered how much I hate having to rely on technology to let me create things, but it's finally done! It's really low-tech and kinda jumpy, but not bad for my first proper attempt at animation. So ladies and gentlemen (all 3 of you who actually read my blog - so ladies and 1 gentleman, rather), without further ado.............. my animation!

Be sure to check out Evelyn Evelyn's website for more beautiful music and fan art.

Patience is a virtue.

Still soldiering on with the Evelyn Evelyn animation. Progress is slow but rewarding and my intention is starting to seem more achievable. Who knows, perhaps this may not be my only animation. I'm going to upload the whole thing to youtube when it's done, but for now... stills...

To be an art student, you basically just have to be good at carrying things.

I had to cart all of my stuff home from the studio today, after having everything marked for assessment. There was rather a lot to carry - too much, in fact. Thankfully, being Not Quite Good Enough At Carrying Things, I was assisted by the wonderful Mr Shaun Tyrel Hartley, whom I love dearly. He changed his shift at work especially so he could come to Manc with me and help me bring everything home, only to have to travel back again (50 mins on the bus) to go to work. He's sweet and selfless and I don't know what I'd do without him.

Here's a picture he didn't realise I was taking:

1 minute sketch... a preliminary study for a stop-motion animation I'm making for the following Evelyn Evelyn song...

Trying to do animation!

I've been wanting to try stop motion animation for a while, this is my first attempt. The drawing itself is pretty terrible but it was more about trying to figure out the process... I'm working on something much better, hopefully ready within the next 2 weeks!
