Hello, i'm a newly graduated animator. I'm originally from Orkney, but i am currently based in Dundee. I specialise in script writing, storyboarding, character/concept design, animating and compositing. I enjoy both traditional and digital painting. I'm a compulsive doodler, and love photography, getting lost in vintage shops, long walks, sunshine and friends.

my film!

So here's my graduate film i did for my 4th year at duncan of jordanstone, dundee. It was developed from a graphic novel, and took about a year and a half to develop, animate and finish :) i was in charge of the direction, script, character design, lead animation, and all after effects wizardry.

Character Concept Art

Some coloured character artwork for my graduate film "Last Show!". These are for the character of Bouquet - an flamboyant transvestite. I took the lead on the key animation for him, and i feel very close to his character now - i love to draw him.
