Swillistrations by Sarah Wilson
Swillistrations by Sarah Wilson – Illustration & Animation
I work with a range of clients on projects internationally and locally – spanning from editorial to animation.
I use a mixture of traditional and digital methods, favouring pencils and gouache as a starting point, then developing my work further with digital textures on screen. My approach to my practise is playful yet considered, producing outcomes that have a whimsical, nostalgic feel influenced by nature, romanticism and literature.
When it comes to animation I favour traditional frame-by-frame methods, often focusing on the smaller, subtle movements that add interesting depth to an image. I have received recognition for my animation work from New Designers in 2018, Les Sommets du cinéma d’animation in 2019 and Centre Pompidou in 2020.
I also co-ordinate drawing and animation workshops and have previously worked with Manchester School of Art, Elephant Academy, Project Ink and Macclesfield Silk Museum.
