Belsay Hall, Newcastle

The above image is one of 12 that are part of a new show that opens Saturday 1st May at Belsay Hall, Northumberland, UK. The show is titled Extraordinary Measures and features work by Ron Mueck, Tessa Farmer, Mat Collishaw and many others - all scattered around the gardens and buildings of Belsay, an English Heritage property.
My installations were placed around Belsay last summer and photographed for the show - visitors can now track down all the images around the grounds, placed where the installations once were. This is my first work outside of an urban area and takes on the theme of tourism and the joys of the day trip - so expect to find images of dodgy ice cream vans, alternative 'donkey' rides, toilet queues, depressing picnics, bored school kids and gift shop dramas. The show runs until 26th September 2010.


I finally have some new 25mm badge sets available - as well as an Inner City Snail 38mm badge. Clickety-click below for more details!

Rock Marí | Opening Credits

My illustrations all over Mexico City!!! :)
This is the opening credits animation for the Mexican feature movie Rock Marí. I was commissioned by the team of Maribel Martinez in Mexico to collaborate in the creation of diverse illustrations compelling the personality of this little musician girl (Rock Marí) who likes to travel and wants to be a rock-star. They had these aerial scenes of Mexico City and the idea was to populate all kind of "girly" illustrations giving life to the buildings during the initial credits. The work was done in a super short time, last minute job! At the end everything turned out good.

Thanks to Gabriela Badillo, Diego Huacuja and some other animators (I don't have all the credits) who made the great 2D/3D compositing, animation and motion tracking work on this piece.

Here are the illustrations I provided and the final animation!
