I thought it was time for an update as I’ve been unusually quiet for the last couple of months…

Have you seen my most recent animation, “Meditation 101: A Beginner’s Guide”?

I’ve actually been commissioned by Happify to create five animations and two promo videos for website. I finished the second video in mid-August and then I took some time off – 5 weeks in all – as I had some visitors over from Australia.

It’s been a busy time as we’ve tried to see as much as we could, this side of the world:

England, including Bristol and Bath…









and Paris…


As you can imagine, we’re all pretty worn out now. But it’s been amazing that’s for sure, and we’ve been especially lucky with the weather!

During my time away I’ve received a few amazing accolades.

I received an exciting email from the Reel Health Film Festival stating, “Happily, I can say that ‘Blame’ has been chosen for the Official Selection for this year’s festival. Of greater significance, I can also happily say that ‘We’re Having a Baby’ has been adjudged the Category Winner for the Creative Award.”

I also received the amazing news that my RSA animation ‘Blame’ has been chosen to be screened at Raindance Film Festival this year. I’m extremely excited about attending the event and so happy to be a part of it.


‘Meant to Be’ has been chosen for Anim’est.

‘The Power Of Empathy’ has been chosen as a EWAAC 2015 finalist. There will be an online showcase for this award and the public will decide the winners.

‘Blame’ was chosen for the final shortlist for the World Illustration Awards.

So not a bad couple of months, eh?

As the sun is beginning to hide behind the rainy clouds, my time off has come to an end and from now until Christmas I will be shut away behind a desk, with tea on tap, completing three more animations for Happify.

I will of course keep you updated with my progress and let you know when the animations become publicly shared.

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful summer too. Much love.
