Illustration // Wednesday, January 30, 2013
'Late Night Work Club is a loose, rotating collective of indie animators. That is, animators who do independent, non-commercial work. It’s an excuse to bring a whole bunch of people together to make something great, and also to promote the work of the artists involved. Some of the best, most personal, experimental and vital animation going right now is happening on the internet. It’s being made late at night when other people have gone to sleep and on weekends when everyone else is out...'

Growing up in the Ren and Stimpy generation, I can't help but get excited about this kind of animation.

Emmanuelle Walker: Illustrations and Animation

Illustration // Tuesday, January 29, 2013
'I’m an Animation Director and Illustrator, currently living and working in London. For my illustrations, I work more and more directly in Photoshop. I always draw an extremely rough little sketch on paper just for the composition and all the rest is done in Photoshop. I still draw on good old paper for character design assignments for which I use a light blue Chromacolor pencil and then I clean it up with a simple HB pencil.' Emmanuelle Walker
