Jeff Miracola’s Fantasy Art Workshop

With just over 20 days to go, Jeff Miracola‘s acrylic painting technique DVD Kickstarter is well on its way to hitting double its pledge goal. You might be asking why is this news worthy, well we love Jeff’s work at the LCS and… it shows that people really do want original fantasy art and there is genuine interest in how it’s created. Jeff does a fantastic job of presenting his work and his videos are brilliant. He took part in our Mail Me Art project a few years ago and he even did a WIP video for that, so thank you for being awesome Jeff!


Please support Jeff and fantasy art in general by backing this awesome Kickstarter project. You won’t be disappointed and I’m pretty sure whatever you pledge you’re getting good value for your money.

Hot Toys Action Figures Process Video

We don’t know about you, but we think Hot Toys make the most amazing action figures and it’s really awesome to see part of the process of how they’re made. You have to check out this video, it’s got English subtitles. If we could afford to purchase all of their releases and actually had somewhere to put them on display, I think we probably would.

Meditation 101: A Beginner’s Guide

Are you new to meditation, and interested in finding out how to start a practice? We’ll walk you through the basics!

This is an animation I’ve been working on for Happify – a company that creates science-based activities and games that help you lead a more fulfilling life.

As with all of my work, this animation was created by drawing pen on paper. Each illustration was scanned, cleaned and coloured in Photoshop and then composited in After Effects.

It was a fun little project. I’ve been commissioned to create five animations for Happify – three which will be launched publicly so I’ll update you with the others when they’re ready!

Lonely Sound

‘Lonely Sound’ is artiste Srinidhi’s first single release, produced by Hermitage Records. Its music video was directed by Shalini Shankar and animated by Sandhya Prabhat and was released on Srinidhi’s VEVO page on February 14, 2015 for Valentine’s Day.

The song captures one of a few rare days during which a couple in a long-distance relationship gets to meet. The music video recently crossed 10,000 views and has received positive responses from audiences all over the world.

Carlos Garde-Martin at Pick Me Up 2015

I made this video to document my involvement in Pick Me Up 2015 at Somerset House, London. You get to see behind the scenes footage of us setting up the Niki Best shop. There are clips from the private view, and more general shots over the 12 day festival. It was such a fantastic thing to be part of, if you couldn’t make it I hope this will fill you in on some of what you missed. Similarly if you did make it down and want to reminisce watch away!

I Can Feel It In My Bones – Short Video

I CAN FEEL IT IN MY BONES is an animated short exploring themes of motivation and experience by following a woman searching for purpose as she finds herself confronted with the potential of change. Unsatisfied with her life as a studio photographer, the woman chooses to follow after a giant. Years pass as she follows. Certain that this is the path to fulfilment, she persists until one evening when she meets a dog and her notion of purpose is challenged.

Profile Picture Project by Patrick Girouard

A little over a year ago I made a small painting of a pirate and posted it on my Facebook profile in honor of Talk Like A Pirate Day. The next day I changed it to a cowboy, and the day after that a mummy. It was kind of fun and my friends were responding positively, so I continued with a hipster, a mime, a fly, a robot… and then someone asked, “Are you going to do a new one every day?” And I said, “Yes. 365 of them, every day for a year.”
