The End of Second Year!

Hello all and welcome to the end of second year! I have handed in my final film, gone on holiday to Ireland with my lovely big brother, been nominated for a Glammie Award and written another article for Skwigly. All-in-all, it's been a seriously jam-packed few weeks!

Before I finally unveil to you my finished film, 'A Midnight Tale', just a quick word about the other bits. Here you can find the latest article I've written for Skwigly. It's about the Brian Boru exhibition at Trinity College Dublin, illustrated by Cartoon Saloon. It's a great exhibition and if you have a minute have a look at the article! I had a great time in Ireland and here are just two of my sketches from the trip for your enjoyment.

A few faces of fellow passengers on our eight-hour
ferry trip from Liverpool to Dublin. Pencil.

Sketch of two little islands of the coast of Howth. They were covered in
birds! Ballpoint and brush pen with some blue coloured pencil.
The next thing I mentioned was that I was nominated for a Glammie Award. For those of you who don't know, the Glammies is the annual showcase/awards show for animation from the University of South Wales (formerly the University of Glamorgan) and this year was its twentieth anniversary. I was nominated in the category 'Best 2D Animation' and, once the site is up, I will post a link to the page where you'll be able to see all the nominated and winning pieces from the Glammies. The show went really well and I met some lovely people at the networking event afterwards; all in all it was a great day!

Now, without further ado, here is my final film. I hope you enjoy it!

I would like to thank again all those who I've mentioned in my credits and special thanks and give you links to those who have work online because you really need to check them out!
