This is my contributing piece, to a pack of cards currently being put together by different artists at Aardman. The cards are going to be sold to raise money to help support Japan after the devastating tsunami that shook the country last Friday (March 11th).
If you are interested in purchasing a pack of cards to help support a much needed cause, please either contact myself or my buddy, Ashley Boddy.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all the people of Japan and any one effected by this disaster.
Peace be with you all.
Love Tori Cat.xx

EDIT: There is going to be an exhibition hosted at Cafeand in Shoreditch May 7th - 22nd 2011 to help raise money for the people of Japan. The Exhibition is called "Animators Vs Earthquakes" and has been organized by Paul Nicholson & Sylvain Marc.
"Animators Vs Earthquakes" is in aid of 'Artists Help Japan', a charity created by Pixar's Dice Tsutsumi.
I have individual prints available for sale of my piece above and the framed original is going to be included in an auction at the exhibition, all in aid of raising money for the charity.

Thank you to every one for their support in helping a much needed cause. Every little bit helps.

Back to Reality...

This week whilst visiting a friend in London, we randomly went to a life drawing class. It was a beginners class, so i felt a lot more relaxed, especially as the model only did long poses. Prior to this, i have recently spent a lot of time getting back to basis and focusing on anatomy and using different materials. I want to get back into the routine of attending weekly classes... I didn't realize just how much i have missed it. :)

"Drawing Inspiration"- FINISHED and "Tori Bird"!!

Its Finally here.... the long awaited and much anticipated "Drawing inspiration"!!
A Massive Congratulations especially to Tim and Wes, and of course all of "Team Wino"!
I worked on the pre-production of the short nearly a year ago now. I was responsible for the background / concept / colour designs. It was a great honor to be included in its making and I am very happy to see how well it is already being received. In just a few short days, live on the net the film has made it onto the front pages of Vimeo and Catsuka.
Thank you for letting me be a part of it's creation and all the best for its future success!! :D
For all the juicy 'Behind the Scenes' and 'Making Of' check out the Production Blog. You will also be able to se some of the design work i did on there too!
Congratulations again to all the team!! The hard work has all been worth it!!

And... for something a little different.... Here is a commission from my really good friend Uli Meyer. "Tori Bird". Even with a broken beak, i think he has still made me look glamours with a little bit of red lippy!! Thank you Uli, it's Perfect!! :D
