Rex the Runt models by Author Wirral writer model maker Daisy Dawes Writer Illustrator Journalist Wirral Merseyside


As a model maker for children’s TV series Pingu, I created props - everything from Valentine’s Day cards and parcels to a miniature washing line - for penguins.

I learned much of my technique as a model maker working on BBC series Rex the Runt, about an unorthodox plasticine dog and his friends, for Aardman Animations in Bristol. My stop-motion animation Futurhuman, about what lies in store for the human race won a Royal Television Society student award.
