A New Year

I wish you all the best for 2022.

I’ve been away from here for months whilst I’ve been concentrating on stop motion animating. Most recently, making and stitching together some clips by learning to use a video editor. The clips were made for an annual Instagram challenge – “Folktaleweek” – which is hosted every year by a group of illustrators who devise 7 prompts for themed illustrations, one per day. This year’s prompts were: Moon, Dream, Awakening, Feast, Bird, River and Sky.

I used them to make up a story using animation and this is the result. (No sound) It’s about a Girl who dreams that the Moon comes down from the Sky. She is told by the Forest Ancients that she must find Moon and return it. Rook helps her to search for Moon and together they return it to the Sky.

It’s been a bit of a hair-pulling learning curve. But I made it!
