Enjoying How To Train Your Dragon the other day (currently on BBC iPlayer) seemed as good an excuse as any to share the work of the talented & lovely Sharon Colman, who was a story artist on the film.
I had the great pleasure of meeting Sharon when she was a student at the National Film and Television School and she stayed with me for a little while finishing her graduation film Badgered.
The utterly charming film, showcasing both her beautiful style of illustration and story-telling skills, went on to be nominated for an Oscar.
Here’s an article I wrote for the Telegraph about the NFTS and Sharon’s Oscar nomination.
There’s a selection of her work on her website including examples of her illustrations, a few of which I’m lucky enough to have as original watercolours.
And a teaser for a film she has in development, Tumbleweed, music by Peter Gosling who also created the music for Badgered.
