jotta animates the V&A

jotta lands at the Victoria & Albert Museum on Friday 26th, where we’ve been invited to host two amazing areas as part of Pen Paper Scissors. Help us colour outside the lines at a night devoted to the crossover between Illustration and Animation.

“Discover the multi-disciplinary nature of illustration by making a stop motion movie with the Peepshow collective and marvel at the live collaborative animation by artists from Jotta. Join a talk by inventive illustrator and writer Graham Rawle and listen to Julie Verhoeven discussing her varied practice. Witness illustrators battle it out at the Secret Wars Drawing competition.”

jotta has been invited to join a impressive roster of world renowned illustration and animation luminaries to create an interactive, exploratory and fun night of creativity.

The animation arena will see a multi dimensional performance encompassing illustration, set construction and digital animation inspired by the Monsters of the V&A. Drawing from the myriad of inspiration housed within the grand museum’s galleries, from scary masks (Japanese), to enormous marble giants (David).

Marvel at the live transformation of a miniature theatrical set, filmed and animated onsite by jotta collaborators Moving Picture Company, then finally projected in the V&A’s grand entrance with accompanying music, for all c. 3000 visitors on the night to see!

On the other side of the museum, jota's Greasy News illustration workshop will take you on an illustrative journey from the newsroom to the chip shop!

Choose your breaking stories from the newspaper stand, dive into the newsroom where our editors will help you fill your broadsheet template with leading stories and illustrations specially design by jotta artists Emma Rios and Dan Jones.

Take your completed paper to the chippy, fill it with 3d yellow card fish and chips, then have your pic snapped in our super size paper chip shop.

jotta have extended a call for submissions of illustrations from the jotta community, which the team on site at the V&A will incorporate into the animations.
