Illustration with Animation

I specialise in 2D paper and 3D puppets stop-motion animation, I prefer to make my puppets from affordable and recycled materials such as craft wire and old fabric.

I'm currently interested in revamping African mythology because they have rich narratives that can be brought out well using moving imagery. This particular story, "The Origins of the Kikuyu", is an origin myth of the Kikuyu tribe in Kenya, it describes where the tribe comes from and how they came to be.
