The following is a guest post by Aimée van Drimmelen as part of the Hothouse Program.
Hi everyone, my name is Aimée. I’m an illustrator and artist formerly of Montreal, currently living and working out of a cabin on a lake in Saskatchewan (my home province).
My animation will be about the Alberta Tar Sands. I’ll be using a combination of stop motion and hand drawn animation, ink, and the surface of drumskins to get some of my effects… My piece is called “Chasing the Dragon.”
