My name is Paul Greer I work at BDH Design and Direction in Bristol making computer animation for the television and other formats. I live in the West of England. I am married with three children.
In my spare time (distant laughter) I draw, write and play with animation.
I started this blog nearly ten years ago as a mixture of a scrapbook of internet things, a log of my professional work, and an archive of my more personal art and drawings.
My main interests are animation and investigating different ways of telling stories with pictures. I also like to post about music, tech, film, friends, politics and comics.
This is a very exciting time with regards to story telling and the ways those stories are disseminated so I would like to connect with people who have a similar interest in radiant experiments with media, and who might like share what we can offer to that project.
As well as this I would like to use this blog as a research station and personal feedback loop to reinforce and encourage my creative life, hopefully providing a resource and point of encouragement to readers as well.
Here is a gallery of the some of work I have been part of or have been fortunate enough to make myself.
Fortune: “Done is better than perfect”.
.Caster wheel on very old piece of furniture we just repurposed into a different part of the house. We are undergoing a major reorganising, lots of memories being resurfaced. Pencil and fountain pen.Notebook: Leonidas.
.Tyndale Baptist Church.Pencil on paper.Struggling on with what I started on 10/365, still a way to go. That neo-gothic religious architecture thing is a real number.Notebook: Ethel.https://instagram.com/p/ptPlGEHyy3/
Bit more done to the long term project that is the view over the road. Previously featured as 23/365 and 12/365.Feeling good today. Drawing helps.I have started collecting these on a single page on my blog, go there (link in my bio), and click on 365 on the menu. Also there is a link to my Facebook page which I have just cranked into action again. These drawings will go there as well as anything else I might see fit. Look for the Facebook “F” on the sidebar if you like Facebook.Pencil.Notebook: Ethelhttps://instagram.com/p/26bTgYHyzY/
Horses and riders at this weekend’s lesson. Drawn without looking (no glasses). Tried to pick up the pace on the second page. Will try and Vine these as an animation when I get the chance. 45 mins Blue Stabilo point 88. Notebook: Ethel
More work on the sketch of the beloved Vittoria begun on 91/365. Still warm enough to sit outside so. Pencil. 15 mins. Notebook: Ethel.
Tree stumps drawn on the slow move in Leigh Woods.
View from window at work. It’s taken some time this one. This is probably the fifth update? I thought I’d get the leaves done before they fell off again. Drawn whilst waiting for large framed Arnold test renders. Time: unknown. Pencil. Notebook: Ethel.
Back-ends of various vehicles drawn during mildly epic road trip (when stationary and when it was safe to do so, obv) from Hunstanton through Peterborough, A47, M6, M5 etc. 7 hours journey time in total.See images of both #east and #west seas (taken on same day) earlier in this feed.V-ball.Notebook: Ethel.https://instagram.com/p/tGGy09Hy_9/
