What's your flavour
Dir. Lucy Izzard 2014
Animation screened in The Drawing Books Studios exhibition 'Common Sense', opening in Sydney on the 2nd of May.
"Dancing is something that excites all my senses at once! As sponsored by the Mexican food company Zambrero, I created three characters inspired by Mexican ingredients, a bean, a lime and a chilli pepper. I gave them all dances to represent how they make me feel when I taste them. The hat initiates the dance and they share the hat with each other in reference to Zambrero's Plate 4 Plate scheme in which the company donates a meal to staving children in developing countries with every burrito or bowl of food purchased. "
I thank Laura Coates for creating the music which brings these little characters to life!

Born with two teeth in Sydney, Australia, at the age of four I took residence in my parents birth place, the UK, and began to grow outwards but mainly upwards in Kent. Together with my brother, I explored my creativity with my mothers make-up, fashioning cuts and bruises for ’999 Lifesavers’ home video recordings. I went to KIAD art college after A-Levels to hone this creativity, chose the field of illustration and proceeded onto Kingston-Upon-Thames University taking home a 1st Class Honours BA Degree in Illustration & Animation. Since then I’ve been making films and drawing, in London with Slinky Pictures, 12foot6 & the BBC, in Sydney with the Drawing Book Studios (who continue to represent me as an illustrator) and I now reside in Bristol with my small family where I continue to do the drawing and animation for ArthurCox and Aardman.
