Welcome to the Small World Animations website. Small World is a Bristol-based artist, specialising in animation and illustration. She also has over 7 years experience facilitating animation and visual arts workshops for people of all ages and abilities. Please get in touch via the Contact page if you would like any more info about any of the services I can offer you, your school, company or organisation.
You’ll find examples of animations I’ve facilitated on the Showreel page, and a selection of illustrations on the Illustration page. And there’s more on my tumblr illustration blog including sketches and drawings for my own animations.
There have been (even more!!) interesting developments here at Small World Towers recently! These include a drama-animation project in Birmingham and a Blu-style graffiti animation for Bristol’s graffiti festival, Upfest, workshops and illustration for the Inventive Inventors’ Inventory, and a whole Summer of animation workshops for Birmingham City Libraries. I’m also going to be doing storytime once a month in Waterstones, in the Bristol Galleries branch.
On the illustration front, I’ve been commissioned to do the illustrations for a book to be published in September by Carlton Books, and I am also now on file as an illustrator at two children’s publishers – Egmont Press and Walker Books, which is completely amazing and exciting. And as for my own animation work, I’m hoping to have a 3-minute cut-out film finished by the end of the year. Here are a few storyboard drawings…

And here’s the animation we made recently at the Egg Theatre in Bath – a gripping murder mystery “Murder at Hotel Day-Glo!”
