Magical results with glass painting animation – Patrick Jenkins

Since I’ve been taking a bit of a theatre break to check out some cinema recently (and get back to some reading), I wanted to give a shout out to artist/animator/documentary filmmaker Patrick Jenkins, whose work I got to know over the past few years when I met him via his wife, photographer Pamela Williams (I have prints of both artists’ work at home).

I especially love the glass painting technique Jenkins uses for his animated films, like Labyrinth and Sorceress.

Check out the trailer for his new film Sorceress:

He also created a new flip book called Morphing City Hall, as part of the Flip-Toronto project. Eight artists chose sites around Toronto and made flip books about them. The flip books will be shown on the TTC Subway Video Screens from August 4 to 19, 2012. Here’s Jenkins’ flip book of Toronto City Hall:
