Hi there, it's me from 2009!

This site is not getting updated any more.
For recent work please check my current site.

Spacegun - Katy Lloyd

SPACE GUN
This gun was made for a sci-fi TV pilot. Made in four days, it was sculpted out of chemiwood. The silver ridge that runs along the bottom of the barrel was a 'found item' glued and filled in place. For more photos from this job click here.



MODELMAKING IMAGE DUMP
Okay well I've finally got round to posting photos of my paid work. Most of these were created with Duncan Mude at D-Forms in London.


Rabbit Spirit Piece - Katy Lloyd

'SPIRIT PIECE' HAND PROP
Here is a hand prop made for a tv fantasy series Spirit Warriors, soon to be aired on the BBC. We had to make 12 different animals representing the Chinese zodiac. I sculpted them in clay and then each one was cast into clear resin with pigment. The inside the of the moulds were dusted with powdered bronze to give the polished surface a mystical shimmer.
For lots more photos from this job, see HERE!



Star Board Game - Katy Lloyd

STAR BOARD-GAME
For the same project, a scene featuring an 'ancient board-game' was also required. The star-shaped board had holes which held the bamboo-stick playing pieces in place. I made the board from mahogany-veneered MDF, the pieces were painted bamboo.

Giant Bull Clips - Katy Lloyd

GIANT CLIPS
Not long after I made the board-game, I made these over-sized bull clips for an art piece at a fashion show. I took my measurements from the original bull-clip (see in center). The clips were sculpted from chemiwood, and then coated in a layer of jesmonite for added strength.



Silk Flower WIP - Katy Lloyd

SILK FLOWERS
For the same art piece as the clips, several large flowers were required. They were made from wire and silk...

...and the double-layered silk had a watery effect when held to the light.

GIANT CIGARETTE BUTTS
In summer 2008 we made a whole load of giant cigarette butts for a television commercial. This was my first paid job after leaving uni! They were made by wrapping paper-card around cylindrical foam pieces, and then double-siding the printed paper around the outside. Loose bits of foam crumb were glued on top and spray-painted to create the ash. Some cigarettes had wire inside so they could be manipulated into various squished and bent states.

After a dirty-down, they looked pretty good on the street.

'NINJA FLOODFIGHT' SPLASHSCREEN SKETCH
Here is the splash doodle from Ninja Floodfight, the 2D Flash game I've been making with Loz and John. I've drawn/animated all the ninjas :)



Artem Sony bunnies Katy Lloyd

BUNNIES!
Bunnies!! These bunnies were made at Artem studios for a Sony Bravia commercial. For seven hard-working consecutive days I was part of a foam bunny production line- after each one was born from the injection mould, the seams needed tidying/hiding. You can see them in the final commercial HERE! Check it out!
