Irish Sketch Society - Week 5

Irish Sketch Society week five - Super Mario Bros. So I did loads of sketches for this week, most of them based around other characters, not Mario. I have played a lot of Mario Kart and ALWAYS get inked by that stupidly cute squid, so it had to be him. I then decided to make it out of felt because I haven't done that is ages and the design really worked for that medium. I had great fun making it.

Here's my process.. sketch, cut and sew!

Irish Sketch Society - Week 4

Irish Sketch Society week four - Birds. I drew lots of owls, a cardinal and a penguin in a scarf. But I chose to go with The Owl & The Pussy-cat. I did it on yellow paper with red pencils. I have no idea why.

Irish Sketch Society - Week 3

Irish Sketch Society week three - Die Hard. This might just be my favourite movie of all time. There were a lot of amazing John McClane entries, so I decided to go with a great quote from Holly:

Laika also have a creative challenge on their facebook page for the first Friday of every month (which I just found out about), so I chose their topic of "The Unlucky Leprechaun". Two birds with one stone, eh!

Irish Folk Furniture...

I designed the poster for Irish Folk Furniture, directed by Tony Donoghue. It won the prize for Best Animation at the Sundance Film Festival 2013.

Irish Folk Furniture uses stop-motion animation to breathe life into the disregarded pieces of furniture that frequently lie rotting in Irish barns and sheds, showing the process of renovating them and returning them to the homes they once inhabited. The short is directed by Tony Donoghue and produced by Cathal Black under the IFB ‘Frameworks’ animated short film scheme.

Here it is proudly displayed in Park City Utah, home to Sundance Film Festival.

I also did a landscape version.
