A “Sound Creature” is a drawing or animation inspired by a creature sound.
I started the project in 2011/2012 by sending designed, “imaginary” creature sounds to selected visual artists and animators who then sent me their visual interpretation in return.
Participating Artists: Sac Magique / Sami Viljanto / Ryan Quincy / David Luepschen / Mark Verhaagen / Lotta Nieminen / Bill Plympton / Santa Maria / Stefanie Augustine / Ian Macarthur / Kristof Luyckx / Ville Savimaa / Joonas Utti / Tomas Garcia / Jon Saunders / Hunter Gatherer / Nick Sheehy / Rex Crowle / Tara Tucker / Janine Rewell / Kirsten Lepore / Dave Prosser / Lucas Zanotto / Juan Molinet / Eirian Chapman / Matt Saunders / ManVsMagnet / Nomint / Bran Dougherty-Johnson / Matt Williams.
Sound Creature Sessions
Later on, I hosted multiple drawing sessions where I played the Sound Creatures to a live audience equipped with pen and paper. Pictured below is a drawing session at the amazing Pictoplasma character design festival.
I also recently collaborated with TATE KIDS, inspiring kids to draw based on my sounds.
