Hello! I'm Sarah Wilson (swillistrations on all of my online platforms)
I'm an Illustrator and Animator based in Manchester, UK.
I've worked for a range of clients both local and international, as well as developing personal projects in my free time. I've worked within animation, publishing and editorial.
I work with a mixture of traditional and digital methods, favouring gouache and pencil as a starting point and developing my work further, experimenting with digital textures on screen. My approach to my practise is playful yet considered, producing outcomes that have a delicate feel.
When it comes to animation I favour traditional frame-by-frame methods and enjoy working on large and small projects, often focusing on the smaller, subtle movements that add an interesting depth to an image.
I approach my personal practise and development with drawing as a starting point - I love research based development and location drawing which informs my final outcomes. I have a range of personal interests when drawing which include folk, magic, cultural traditions and historical narratives.
My projects have been shortlisted in animation in the UK and abroad, the most recent being Les Sommets du cinéma d'animation in 2019.
