Kirstie Sinclair


I’m a Scottish 2D animator and editor. I chose to come to NUA to experiment with the variety of animation processes and in doing so, found my passion in character animation and performance. There’s nothing more satisfying than watching a series of flat drawings come to life.

I’m influenced by the work of Jamie Hewlett and Stephen Silver for their stylish character design and comprehensive world-building. Specifically, the characters of Gorillaz are massively inspiring to me because people believe that they’re real; people talk about the fictional band members as much as they do co-creator and musical genius Damon Albarn. I would love to be able to create cartoon characters with this level of realism!
