First animation

Hmmm - my first attempt at using my new animation programme. Seems to be pretty easy to get the hang of the basics. I'll try to make any future films a little bit more exciting.

Lumberjack wood 2 (2007)
[Clay, plaster metal]

I like this little lumberjack fellow. Think he might be an interesting character to continue to draw and design clay sculptures about. Here he has stumbled upon a bear while walking in the woods.

Break Glass in Case of Emergency

Break Glass in Case of Emergency (2004)
[clay, perspex and wood]

I sold the above piece at an exhibition in London a couple of years ago and last week we were reunited as it requires some repair following a wee accident. The glass did indeed break but thankfully it was not an emergency and with a wee bit of work over the weekend, it will be good as new and on its way home come Monday.

There are lots more of these wee guys availible for viewing and purchase at my website

Pirate Wood

Pirate Wood (12cm dia x 50cm) 2007

Pirate Wood [close up] 2007

For some reason I'm a bit obsessed with making things with woods/ forests or trees in them. Guess its because they are such good backgrounds for stories - full of magic, mystery and possible fear.

I plan to make a series of these wee models and with each one I will attempt to capture a moment from a story waiting to be told.

Lumberjack (14cm x 20cm)

My cousin told me a story about his adventures on the NYC underground. One morning, in his first week of work, when getting on the train, he dropped his paper. As he bent down to pick it up, the doors closed and he got stuck with his head on one side and his body still on the platform. Luckily the train won't move if the doors aren't fully closed so he didn't have to run really quickly down the tunnels. The New Yorkers quickly lept to his assistance and forced the doors open. Once free Stuart fell face first into the train and then had to try and stand up with the remenants of his dignity and act like everything was ok.

First drawings of the year

The hook (14cm x 10cm) 2007

This year, I am going to attempt to be a bit more proactive when it comes to producing artwork. I will now try to create a new painting or sculputre every week. We shall see how long this manages to continue for.
