I met Rosemary Murphy through a "Start your own business" course back at the beginning of the year.
On seeing my work Rosemary asked me to design her branding and website for her online wool company "The Constant Knitter" I have to say she was one of the easiest clients to work with, she wanted something different, a little quirky and the rest she left to me. Since then we have become good friends and I am pleased to announce that after months of work on the backend from KRO, her website The Constant Knitter.com has gone live.
Have a look and buy some wool. A knitting craze is sweeping the country, pick up those needles!
These are some sketches I've been working on based around one of my stories and I need a little help.
I am trying to animate characters from the dump but I want to do it without adding anything else to them. I want their faces, their human"ish" characteristics to be a part of what they would normally look like, I don't want them to look like an add on, hope I'm explaining myself. Anyway, this works with objects made from materials that will bend, as you can squish and squash mouths, eyes etc... into places they weren't meant to be, but when it comes to glass, wood (although can use the knots to some effect) and other solid materials it proves a bit of a problem.
Have a look at the drawings and see if they spark any inspirations...
An interesting weekend I have to say... my brain is a little fried, spent most of the time staring at my notebook, trying to think of mad stories to write about a dog with blue eyes.
"Croc an Oir" at the foot of Sliabh na mBan was the backdrop to my creative weekend, I and about 12 others attended a creative writing workshop with John MacKenna. I have to say I reckon there must be something in the water in Mullinahone as I can't remember the last time I laughed so much my eyes were leaking!
