So this was my response to a brief called "Destination Conversations" from when I went to Chicago.
Basically I felt when I went to the City that it had its own voice that is unlike any other. So many components of the city interacted and conversed to make up the bigger voice which is Chicago. Although not always spoken word, the conversation that might be happening might be a game of chess, a hockey match, the interaction of the seagulls with the subway...
In the animation I wanted a real continuity flowing from each frame to another to demonstrated how all this conversations join together to make up Chicago.
Considering I never do animation much, I'm pretty happy with this outcome and inspired to do more.
I am very lucky that I do something everyday which inspires me and that no one else can do. I'm Charlotte, or Coop as I am more commonly known.
I've just graduated from Loughborough University with a degree in Illustration. Its satisfying to know that no one else can do what I do. Lots of people can draw and be creative and be ten times better than me, but no one can draw exactly like me or create exactly like me, and nor can i draw or create like anyone else. Sometimes when I'm having a bad day I remind myself that what i do is unique, and not one person can repeat its exactly. And for that I am thankful.
I like to experiment and try new things, whether thats in the studio or in life. I like traveling and exploring new places and finding the anomolies in life that stand out and don't fit in.
I love laughing and smiling, it influences everything I do, and I can't see that being a bad thing.
