About me

Dizzy Little Dotty (Lauren Carney) is a visual storyteller of the digital age. Her quirky character based imagery connects with audience on not just an aesthetic but personal level. She is driven to make beautiful illustrations that move each person differently through digital and contemporary design. Her illustrations have been projected on giant screens at international music festivals like Coachella and Splendour in the Grass, hung in galleries, sold in international stores, and printed in magazine publications. She has also lectured at universities and national conferences and run workshops within different communities for youths and adults alike. Her dreamy drawings have partnered her with international musicians Azealia Banks, Angus & Julia Stone, popular Australian music festival Splendour in the Grass, Iconic Australian fashion label Blackmilk Clothing, along with Laika Entertainment, Westfield Group, Brisbane Writers Festival, RACQ and Top Advertising Agencies.

  • This degree prepared you for a career in the animation and visual effects industries. The theoretical and practical skills that were essential to these career paths are comprehensively covered through majors in Character Animating, Art Direction and Technical Direction. Using top of the line hardware and premium, industry-recognised software, original animated films were produced from script to screen. This degree developed my skills in concept development, storyboarding, 2D and 3D character animation, editing, sound recording, visual effects and post-production.
