We’re pleased to introduce to you this very animated version of the mechanical writing table that’s on view—in very still form—in the Large Library of the Huntington Art Gallery.

The GIFs come from a video that is part of a five-part suite of short, silent videos focusing on objects or architectural elements on view in the first-floor period rooms of the Huntington Art Gallery. Each video is installed on iPads in the room where the object is on view.

Read more about the iPads and other interpretive features of the period rooms on VERSO.

My desk is not this organised. 

I get a lot of questions about what I draw and paint with, so Kate (my wonderful wife) thought this would be a great time to make our first video.

Cute!

There are a few materials missing, like my print making paper and the many empty bottles of gin that litter my studio, but this is pretty much the lot!

On a side note, I might eat too much Turkish Delight…maybe.

Big thanks to thedanperry for all of his help and expertise and most importantly his patience while helping us shoot this!

Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start!

An Gadhar Dubh Animation Concept

As a little treat for any newcomers, here is the animation test we created for our initial pitch of Pádraig’s Frameworks funded film An Gadhar Dubh:

vimeo

I received my Priority Bicycle yesterday in the mail and was SO looking forward to putting it together that the only clear logical thing was to draw out the assembly from 20 minutes to 2 hours to make a stopmotion animation of the assembly.

There are some clear issues with camera stability, but the only tripod I have is a desktop tripod, unfortunately. It was a lot of fun, regardless. ALSO LOOK AT MY CAT. THE ASSHOLE KEPT WALKING THROUGH so we just kind of let him carry on.
