Chickens Hooray is a cock-a-doodle-do party call from the crazy coop. Two mad chickens created this ecard: Octavian Fitzherbert (artist) and George Grinling (composer).
About the Artist
Octavian Fitzherbert is an Irish artist. His work is sketchy and imaginative, bizarre and brilliant. He was awarded a much coveted place at The National Drawing School and then went on to attain a BA in Fine Art from The National College of Art and Design, Ireland. After that he made the move into animation. It’s a medium that suits his approach to storytelling, which is often inspired by fairytales, is meandering, obscure and hilarious. All more than possible to achieve with animation.
About the Composer
George’s music evokes a contemporary orchestral sound. It’s avant-garde and fun, whilst maintaining a nostalgic texture. His sound is fundamentally a collage of the music that has influenced him throughout his life. From classical and pop, to electronic and jazz. He started writing music at a young age, but for his ambition to really flourish he dedicated a chunk of his life to teaching himself the fundamentals of composition, before continuing his studies as a protégé under some prominent composers in London. Simultaneously George found success in his electronic music explorations as part of THOOL, a band that gives him a parallel vocation, where he experiments with off-beat, off-the-wall compositional soundscapes.
