“Dancing Queen” (2015) is a short animation that is best described as the love-child of Dance Dance Revolution and Robot Chicken. It is a montage of multiple digitally rendered dancing drag queens, wrapped in various zentai suits with 80’s graphic design motifs – layered onto an assortment of whimsical image sequences. The pastel pastiche painting is focussed on intersecting 3D and stop motion animation, digital mark making, dance and fashion illustration.
