I really enjoy my part time role as a lecturer in animation within the School of Arts Media and Design at Staffordshire University. Working in this environment has acted as a creative catalyst for me. I have been curious to see how computer software could be used to explored to rig and animate my prints. I had already started to use Photoshop to isolate key elements.

I approached Annabelle Morley, a third year animation student. She struck me as someone who genuinely enjoys the challenge of bringing characters to life and making their movement believable. In Summer 2010 I commissioned Annabelle to create some animated cycles using a couple of the relief print designs:- “1 Bird In Flight” (which I wanted to see as a flock!) and Four Sail Boats. See the results below!
