Should You Meet A Lady In A Darkened Wood

On a dark, dark night,
'neath a cold, full moon,
There a gentleman sat,
In a candlelit room...
Searching for something.

A trashy, campy, Gothic fairytale with visuals inspired by early Disney concept artwork and UPA animation of the 50s. My graduation film from the Royal College of Art, London, MA Animation.

  • I'm an animator and illustrator, specialising in hand-drawn, frame-by-frame animation. My practice tends to show a strong interest in human culture – from psychology, anthropology and classics to history, myth and folklore, I love examining whatever it is that makes us collectively tick.
