This was my Year 12 Studio Art piece. So so long ago!
Inspired by Sesame Street and Monty Python animations I set myself the task of learning-by-doing and tried to explore 26 different styles of animation to make an alphabet. Some were more successful than others but it was a great learning experience!
My teachers gave me a studio to myself and free reign over the media studio computers. It took all year working every free period and every night until the cleaners locked the school up. All good preparation for a life of animating.
