Today, it’s cold outside and the weather can’t make up its mind if it’s raining or not.
Tucked away indoors, I’m busy lavishing all my time and effort today into our little Barry and Molly duo.
“Into the Hallowed”
As this is a semi-commercially minded project at the minute, not all of the details of this project’s creation will be going up here. But there will be lovely snippets, pictures and musings as I go.
I have 7-8 backgrounds to make, and as many scenes to animate. Altogether, this project is likely to cost me somewhere in the region of 398-414 hours to create. If this was my day job (as I would like it to be one day) that would be 3 months worth of work!
Did you know? In one of the first animations I am making for our site is a lovely, long, long…why is it so long lol…background.
You see, there is a forest. Lots of trees. And the start and end location to consider. As well as what I can and can’t tell you. I wish I could spill everything, it would make this feel so much simpler. I look forward to when everything is out in the open and I have finished drawing all the woods!
Here, have a small snippet…
So…what have Barry and Molly been up to this past while?
Well, they have (temporarily) taken on a more grown up appearance. This was so that they could try on the outfits I have for them for their winter schedules. I’m sure they are going to be keeping themselves very busy – especially in the snow!

And aside from getting my little geminis all kitted out for the winter weather, what have I been doing?
Haha, well. It’s perhaps less interesting – my geminis certainly weren’t interested and have been planning what to do with their snow…
Well, with the schedule sketchily sketched out in a sketchy way, I have a much clearer idea of how to get Barry and Molly into their own adventure.
So let’s start the count down: 414 hours to go.

I’ll keep this one brief –
Welcome to the blog of Cat Garrett and the home of my projects. These are little budding sapling projects which will grow with time, patience, dedication and lots of love!
Meet my current kids: Barry and Molly! If you follow me on instagram you will have seen these two before. My little geminis are very young, I need to really get them all grown up and running sooner rather than later.
Currently, they have been written into at least two short animations that will be made into seasonal greeting cards – a website for that is coming soon!
For now, please wait patiently for that and I will whip it up sometime in 2016/7.
P.S. If you stumble across this site while it is still under construction, I apologise for the inconvenience. I’ll have it all up and running soon!
