Catherine Egan is a animator from Manchester, ‘a dabbler, getting stuck into paints and other materials as well as working digitally.’
‘I am currently looking for a permanent animation/art related job in Manchester. I have been freelancing in the mean time. Animation just seemed to click for me. I like to animate drawings and watch them come to life. I especially like to make comedic animations. I grew up watching Tom and Jerry & Cartoon Network.
A graduate of Liverpool John Moores University (studied at Stockport College) BA HONS Design & Visual Arts – Moving Image.’
I am influenced by a lot of things, mostly Disney & Tim Burton animations, HISHE animations (Youtube), Art Nouveau & Deco, and Anime/Manga art. As for projects, I am trying to learn Adobe Flash. I have been animating a cartoon head of myself going through a series of emotions. It’s a bit of an experimental piece and I’d like to see where it will go.’
