Sarah Pollard, On the Farm, 2017, 3.22 minutes.

Sarah is a young emerging West Australian artist whose practice currently explores digital comic style animation and drawing.

Focussing on her own representations of landscape and home, Sarah’s works for Mixed Reality, although still in development, are bright and intimate reflections on her connection to her rural home. Working with virtual reality Sarah’s works are currently directed to blurring reality and non-reality, morphing representations of her farm and her distinctive fictional animal characters into a single dimension.

Presenting their individual DADAA pathways to an audience of over 40 people, each artist shared their visual and digital work.

Feedback was extremely positive and the artists are looking for other opportunities to tell their stories.

I have drawn, coloured and painted a scenery of the chooks yard. When I finished the picture, I had to draw Bendy, Boris, Alice and Simon and to put them in the picture before I took a photo of it. Then I had to put Frisk and Monster Kid in it before George and Travis.

Bendy, Boris and Alice belong to The Meatly’s Bendy and the Ink Machine

Frisk and Monster Kid belong to Toby Fox’s Undertale

Simon, George and Travis belong to me.

Julia Hales developed a goal setting workshop for MIXED REALITY artists and delivered it last week…

 

For my Sync Leadership I always want to help the other young artists to follow their dreams.

I have learnt to do goal setting with MIXED REALITY artists to map out their goals.

First I start by telling them my story about how I worked at achieving my goals.

I also ask them to DREAM BIG and dreaming big means you push yourself to achieve your dreams and to see your self in the future and to keep working in the future.

I also learnt to give them some exercises to help them to map out their goals on their own and in groups. I show them my example of setting my goals to follow as well.

We all worked together in groups over three days to set some new skills to get to their big dream.

The goal setting workshop went every well and everyone in the workshop is very happy and very excited that the workshop had helped them a lot to keep working on their big dreams.

I would like to keep doing more goals setting with other people and also people with Down Syndrome as well.

I worked with Danny, Lauren, Tina, Pat, Hugo, Verity, Cameron, Aidan and Sam.

Julia Hales’ goal setting workshop on May 25 with Pat Carter and Sarah Pollard began with what I like about myself. Sarah wrote the following in response:

What I like about myself is I’m good at singing, drawing, swimming and crocheting. My swimming teacher Marg taught me how to swim now she’s teaching me how to crochet. I think I draw some 1920s cartoons really well. I drew one of my OCs (Original Characters) including Seena and Vineyl in Undertale, Simon the cat in Bendy and the Ink Machine, Spitice in Skylands, Fox-F6x in Crash Bandicoot and I’m still drawing 123 Slaughter Me Street OC called the Pouncer and it’s on my iPad. Next I will soon be drawing a couple of 123 SMS OC including the sucker who is an elephant puppet and the Peeker who is a rabbit puppet. The Pouncer would be a cat puppet. I’ve drawn a Jet Set Radio Future OC calledRainbow and she’s a girl.
