30 September to 11 November 2017
Artist and illustrator Corrina Askin exhibits an exciting new body of work related to two new animation series. The Twinkling Tree is a concept which centres on Jude and the characters who live in a fabulous walled garden. Guided by her friends, Mr. Bones, and Wobbly Bob, she could get lost in conversation at the Bridge of a Thousand Beards or learn to speak in pictures with Hoppy or end up flying in a hot air balloon with The Fearless Boy. The Twinkling Tree is a uniquely eccentric and beautiful show for pre-schoolers about the magic of discovery, trusting in the universe and following your own path in life. Corrina is currently in discussions with a leading animation company to develop this concept further.
Louis and How to Just Be is a feel good emotional guide for 12 years to adult. Louis is for those moments when we get stuck. Humour helps us shift gear and let a ‘hard moment’ pass. Louis and How to Just Be is about stillness, curiosity, and love and not taking ourselves too seriously. It will appear on the CBeebies/ CBBC social media platform in autumn 2017.
