Sketch for new peacock painting, it’s tricky to try and think about mood and themes for such a simple subject…
Think I’m going to try and concentrate on the patterns, textures and shapes rather than any grand concept, although I would like it to have a calm, flowing and harmonious feel to it. Not totally sure on the background and colours yet, that will be tomorrow’s experimenting job!

This is a piece for a very quick project that will hopefully be featured in an 80s cult movies zine! Seemed like a classic one to go for would be a Withnail and I montage style scene.. Tried to make the piece seem a bit grubby and scruffy with grey scuffed pencil and yellow paint highlights but wish I had more time to make more of the comedy and expressive aspects.. Still here it is:

Started on book number 2, the classic Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. For this one, I would like to keep the same sort of feeling of loneliness and isolation, using traditional English countryside imagery but using a modern style. These covers below are a bit of a failed attempt at conveying what I want to do as they look a bit twee, but they are ok in terms of composition and imagery. The black ink and white paint image at the bottom has the kind of look I would like to use for the covers.

Animation is pretty much finished.. here is the basic finished product. Not sure on the speeds of parts and I’m aware that some sections came out a lot better than others, so constructive criticism is welcome! I hope the basic story of it is clear. Stay tuned for the completed music video!
