Ethel & Ernest

I worked on the hand-drawn animated feature film Ethel & Ernest as Assistant Art Director. 

Ethel & Ernest is a film adaptation of the award-winning graphic novel by Raymond Briggs. Brought to life by Lupus Films and Directed by Roger Mainwood, Ethel & Ernest tells the true story of Raymond's parents - two ordinary Londoners living through a period of extraordinary events and social change.

The Snowman & The Snowdog

I worked as a Background Artist and Renderer on The Snowman and The Snowdog, the sequel to the 1982 animated classic The Snowman, from the book by Raymond Briggs. Here are a few examples of some Backgrounds and Rendering I did for the film.

The Snowman and The Snowdog premiered on Christmas Eve 2012 on Channel 4 and attracted over 11 million viewers over the Christmas period.

It took a team of 77 artists and animators over a year to create the 24 minute hand drawn animation, consisting of approximately 200,000 drawings and using over 3000 pencils.
