Winter OlympicsThis years winter Olympics coverage in February was advertised with this amazing animated film for the BBC. Talented Illustrator Jon Klassen teamed up with renowned director & designer Marc Craste of Studio AKA to produce an amazing piece of animation about an inuit hero who has to use all his skills to restore light to a dark and troubled world.

I suppose you could describe Wilfrid Wood as a 3D illustrator. Made entirely by hand his figurative models have Wood's distinct style which steams mainly from a great sense of humour. Originally a graphic designer and after working on TV programme spitting image as a model maker he decided to ditch the 9-5 jobs and just create what he wants. His subject matter often comes from people he's met or seen in his day to day life. He has created some great fun characters.
It would be an understatement to say that Wood's work leans towards the naughtier side of life. "Sex is such a great subject for art," he says. "What I try to do in my work is look at the tension between pornography and primness, realism & cartooniness and hopefully the work ends up somewhere in between those things."
