We’re thrilled to welcome the artists of Animal Logic back to Wedge Gallery for their second Kino show!
As digital laborers to the cause of entertainment, we fill briefs: “Change the lens; add some sass to that cat; make it like, the coolest robot that ever roamed the earth.” As production, character and story designers, this is the stuff of our visual effects and animation lives.
So, when not working it’s fun to be led by our own hearts’ desires and this year we did so loosely to the theme ‘Beastly Exhibits’.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Comic: Tenderised Parent 1, 2, 3, 4
Adam started work as an animator for Disney at just 15 years of age. He has spent the past 29 years working as a Lead Artist and Animator for Disney, Lucasfilm and is currently in the Story Dept. at Animal Logic. His old-school comic covers come from his love of old, random comics he’d find in his local news agency as a boy and the many ways his dear son, Welly, would show his love through brute strength.
Round up the Usual Suspects
Donald Walker has been working in Film and Television in Australia and overseas for over 20 years. His careers highlights include animating a certain duck called Donald and contributing concept art and storyboards to the LEGO movies. Recently he worked in the Story dept for Peter Rabbit. He loves nothing more than a blank sheet of paper that he can scribble over.

Lonewolf; Stag; Little Did They Know
I’m Fiona and I’ve been drawing ever since I could pick up a pencil. I’m currently working at Animal Logic as a concept artist and have had the great pleasure of working on projects like the LEGO Batman and LEGO Ninjago movies.

Gibson is a Sydney-based illustrator/concept artist with a degree in design in visual communication at UTS.
He now works at Animal Logic as a concept artist and is quickly racking up feature film credits.
Grime works across the fields of design for film and sound. For this show, he played dress-ups in his lounge room and channelled some early 1900’s Sydney crime vibe as he’s always wanted to be the bad guy. Please note the skull is probably not real.
Gathering; P.A.L. 9000
Kim Taylor hails originally from South Africa and has traversed a career and life journey through London to Sydney where he now lives with his young family.

As above, so Below

Simon is a story board artist and animator with 24 years industry experience. Employed at Animal Logic for the last 10 years, and having just finished the new Peter Rabbit movie, he is also a keen musician. ‘Lockout’ – Sydney’s live music scene is not what it used to be and could go the way of the dinosaur. Let’s hope not.
