Animation Art Show 2016 - Growing Up Fast

Here is my piece for the 2016 Animation art show. 

The Animation Art Show is an exhibition and auction in aid of Irish Children's charities and is fast becoming one of the biggest animation events in Ireland. It was first created in 2011 with the purpose of tapping into the bubbling creativity emerging from the fast growing animation industry in Ireland. 

All artwork is kindly donated by animation professionals and students and showcases a wide range of mediums including painting, print, sculpture, plush toys, animation cels and more! The small team of volunteers have now raised over €40,000 since the first public event. Not only does it give animation artists a platform to showcase their personal work but every single cent raised goes to charity.

​This years event is in partnership with The Ark and it's chosen charities are the ISPCC and
