Miles Morales – The Sunflower
An amazing film, probably the best animation of 2018! It’s just breathtaking, beautifully executed and so visually pleasing! I had to draw some fan art. Above all the representation in this film is so important, even I didn’t realise how much until I finished the movie the impact this has. It’s things like this that drive me forward in order to make sure there is more diversity in art and animation.
After a long hiatus I have a few prints up for sale on my Etsy store (while stocks last) so check it out!
I have set up a Twitch account to begin live streaming my art – you get to see me draw live! Give me follow to keep in the loop, I will also update on my social medias when I’m live too.
I also hope to be streaming games soon too especially when Kingdom Hearts III comes out – believe there will be tears!
I recently begun my idea to create a self-love comic series depicting the everyday struggles around mental health and how we can tackle them. I was feeling quite low when I drew this, but I felt much better once getting it out. Just goes to show the power of Art! And of course, I shall continue this story when I have completed another animated lyric video commission.
The Yellow Diamond (2018)
A good friend of mine (and also dedicated client!) has commissioned me to illustrate another picture to give his lady friend as a birthday present. I was first given this task last year and comparing the 2017 illustration to this year’s one, I am so happy and impressed with how much I have improved not only with my skill, but with my composition, colouring and speed.
I made another vlog for a series I call ‘Why I Love…’ and it will be short videos including time lapse drawings, advice on art and how particular things fuel my inspiration and why I draw them.
I was commissioned by talented singer Blits to create an animated lyric video for his new song ‘Not Like You’.
Hearing this for the first time, it was so catchy and I was amazed at his talent. I was very flattered Blits wanted to work with me and create an animation for his awesome tune! Blits was awesome to work with and I’m really pleased with the outcome of this, it’s my first lyric video and there is more to come soon in the future!
I am now a fully qualified Arts Facilitator for the Arts Award!
This is a big accomplishment for me, I am now able to run art activities for young people and get them fully accredited with a recognised certification to help further their careers. I definitely have achieved a life long goal of mine and this is only the beginning!
Working with Nics Music UK, I helped create a strategy for the design and promo of his second upcoming EP: Stories for MANDY launch party! I also designed the album artwork for his EP, it can now be preordered on all good music platforms.
I’m really proud of everything we have achieved so far with our collaboration and time has really flown by, the launch party night is going to AMAZING!
