Black Cat Awareness Day

I've just been reliably informed it's Black Cat Awareness Day and seeing as we are currently completely bewitched by our neighbours brilliant little black cat, Indie, I thought I'd illustrate just how fantastic he and other black cats are, by drawing what he got up to this morning... He likes pens.

"Black Cat Awareness Day is upon us!
Black cats are often overlooked by would-be adopters and many of them remain in our care for longer than others. This is why we have deemed today Black Cat Awareness Day. To really get people’s attention, we are running a social media campaign right now, but we need your help to make it a success!

We want to see a show of solidarity for these misunderstood felines so are inviting supporters to share pictures of their black cats now! Ideally, if you use Twitter, we would like you to tweet a link to wherever you choose to post your pictures along with the hashtag #CPBlackCats. We will be encouraging people to tweet this hashtag as much as possible between 12.30pm and 1.30pm in an attempt to get it trending on Twitter. "

Happy to Bed

I do apologise it's been ages! However, as mentioned in an earlier post,  I have been very fortunate recently to work with one of my great friends and most brilliant animation directors: Alice Dupre on 3 short viral films for Ikea Uk's "Happy to Bed" campaign for Mother London.

It was a great project to work on, massively creative and satisfying and a real team effort. When it comes to thinking outside the proverbial box and pushing animated ideas Alice has it down to a tee, which was great to see and work with. I tend to come at film from a story and narrative direction and often forget to give visual design the consideration it deserves, but all 3 films, I think look lovely.

So here for you're viewing pleasure, are the fruits of our labour... Enjoy... But don't nod off until you've seen them all!
