Here is a little 'tutorial' on how to apply Hourglass make-up and create the classic 'Marilyn' look. For this I started with the traditional animation technic of drawing frame by frame on paper and capture that on the defunct Omega machine (super old school!). This only happened because I 'recycled' some animation exercises I made when I was at college, UAL - Central St Martins in 2005, on the course where at the time we were learning animation starting with the traditional method. A long and laborious procedure which roughs and their vintage look to me are still the most interesting to watch, (you can watch them in my video list - 'Hourglass Cosmetics Rough animation').. For the 'Hourglass Cosmetics' video I drawn and couloured the animation in Procreate and then edited in After Effect with the unmissable help of PSD for prepping the stills assets. 'Hourglass' is a cruelty free cosmetics brand, all vegan because animals are like us and the planet needs to be looked after. :)
TCO / Huck Magazine
Short animations to compliment a promotional video by TCO / Huck Magazine 'Meet the green-fingered student helping your plants thrive' When the pandemic forced her to move back in with her parents, Tesni Boughen decided to turn her plant obsession into a new business. Botanical Babe is at the beginning of its journey – one that has seen it grow exponentially in an incredibly short period of time. For that reason, Tesni has never really had an opportunity to think about her brand’s visual identity in a meaningful, long-term way. But thanks to support from 99designs by Vistaprint, which will include a new logo and design refresh, now is the perfect time to begin. By Design is an editorial series created with 99designs by Vistaprint, in which all participating businesses receive a design makeover, as well as a financial grant to help them embark on their next chapter.

Curry Naked Noodles
I absolutely loved working on this project where I helped out at final stage of the animation with this fantastic artwork by Illustrator: Justin Poulter. Justin says: 'I was commissioned by Creature London to create a series of illustrations to be used as social content for their client Naked Noodles. The creative brief asked me to use bright neon colours to complimented Naked Noodles brand colours and energetic illustrations influenced by street art and skateboard graphics. I loved working on these! This campaign was featured on renowned advertising showcase, campaignlive.co.uk' Art Direction: Haley Koehn Graphic Designer: Alissa Metsnick
