Louise Fogerty
Artist | Professional | Film & Animation
United Kingdom
Hi! My name is Louise, and I'm a freelance 2D animator and comic artist. :iconmytforskare:

I am the director and animator behind the short film 'Leyenda Del Quinto Sol' ►youtu.be/Ed2jUq35pMg

I am also the creator of 'What's New Under Tonatiuh?,' an online comic strip featuring the antics of Nahua gods. whats-new-under-tonatiuh.tumbl…

Currently I am collaborating with the writer of the comic 'Nahualo' to produce an exciting graphic novel series called 'Sun King Tonatiuh', set in modern day Mexico. It is an urban fantasy comic updated once a week that follows the adventures of Yohualtzin, a young university student, and an ousted god who seeks to reclaim his throne before the world as we know it succumbs to the primordial chaos… www.facebook.com/ReySolTonatiu…

Ever since childhood, it has been my dream to make a mythology comic. I have always loved telling stories, drawing, learning about different cultures, mythology, and history… It is something I have always found important; they are ancient stories from the great tapestry of humanity and something beautiful to cherish and be proud of. I wanted to make something fun and accurate, without its liberties undermining or butchering the source material. This is how 'What’s New Under Tonatiuh?' and the animated short 'Leyenda del Quinto Sol' were born – Frequently humorous, and attempted faithful adaptations of Nahua mythology, created to capture the interest of those who might be turned away from the tired old words of a dusty history book. Indigenous culture is alive and flowing, and so too is the mythology. My content is never created to replace a history book – it is simply there to encourage people to pick up that history book.

Hello everyone!
Thank you for your patience - I have been very busy pouring my sweat and blood into my university projects and I have finally finished for the year. These last three months, we worked to make a 2 minute animation, and I was a little bit ambitious and made mine 3. If any of you would like to watch it, I have uploaded it privately to vimeo with a password entry, which I shall give to you.

My film is based on my favourite of the Norse sagas, a story from the Poetic Edda where the thunder god Thor has has mighty hammer stolen by the jotun Thrym, who has but one condition to give it back... 
I put a lot of research into this to try to make it as true to the original as possible, making only minor changes in order to fit it into the space of a short film. I hope you enjoy it!
Backgrounds were made by :iconkamazotz: and some final design work was done by :iconladycat17:

I have... decided to return to DA! I am sorry I went so inactive on here for so long. I deeply apologise if you missed me on this platform. But in return I gift you with a whole lot of cool new stuff! :D

Some of you may have been aware that I decided to animate part of the Legend of the 5th Sun for my graduation film at animation school. A lot of time, effort, research and dedication went into the creation of this little film, as well as many painful all-nighters, untimely setbacks (I'm looking at you, Nanahuatzin!), and mugs of coffee sweetened by tears. I intend to post a link to the film so you have a chance to see it, but for fun I am also releasing it in comic format which I shall be posting to you twice a week. I hope you enjoy the fruits of labour that went into the making of this animation.

According to Aztec myth, there have been five suns; five eras; five different births to the word. Each sun cyclically succumbed to its destruction, fatally identical to that which came before it, and the world was created again. Some years after the forth calamity, when the world had been created anew with life forms an improvement on the last, the gods gathered in darkness at the city of Teotihuacan to charge a god with the momentous task of illuminating the world. This animation tells the story of the last of these divine creations, the dawn of our own sun, which still exists today.

Sorry if this is sudden, but, I'm so happy I found your profile. I've looked through your gallery a million times already and can't get over how creative it is! Your style is so cute and I've fallen in love with it. Squee!  You're probably busy but I hope that when you get the chance, you'll draw more.
