K-J Mathieson: How Corky was Created
Animation artist K-J Mathieson, describes in her own words, the process of creating the animated short Corky: A Bedtime Story in both the USF St. Petersburg Library Gallery and online StoryMap exhibits.
K-J describes the theme of the piece as:
A corkscrew with a screw loose battles a giant glass bottle to uncork seven magical lightning bugs trapped inside.
