David Canough

I was born in 1967, in Cornwall, Ontario, Canada with a developmental disability. I get shaky and nervous, and cannot read or write. I have been making art at The Nina for the last seven years. I make ceramics, paintings, and drawings and especially linocut prints. I also dance and have performed in public a couple of times. “Squash Me” is my first animation. I made my Sasquatch from plastiscene and wire then staff at the Centre showed me how to work with I Can Animate on the iPad, and then I shot my footage. We put this footage into Adobe AfterEffects to edit and add special effects. I also made the music for my movie with Garage Band on the iPad.
