Joanna Susskind, All The Young Nudes

I run Toad’s Caravan which began as a creative collective for filmmakers and animators in 2010. Toad’s Caravan now operates as an umbrella brand for the coworking space I run in the Southside of Glasgow with my husband, Ben Whitney. We were previously based in Ruthven Lane in the west end of Glasgow. TC is the name under which I create any creative animation & film content. It’s also home to All The Young Nudes Life Drawing Club, which started in 2008 as a side project – something to do outside of work at The Glasgow School of Art where I worked at The Digital Design Studio (now the School of Simulation and Visualisation) as Digital Media Specialist. In this role, invented for me, I was a 3D modeller, editor, producer and animator plus I worked on some incredible 3D laser scanning projects: Stirling Castle, Rosslyn Chapel and coordinated the Mount Rushmore scanning trip.

I wear many hats but mostly love to play art director. Currently, the favourite hat has to be house builder! ( The deigned and are building the house ourselves in Maryhill.

All The Young Nudes has always surprised me with it’s popularity and success. Taking it online has been an eye-opener – in the best way. I’m looking forward to discussing this move with you all and hope we can get into a conversation about options and possibilities for the future of creative businesses online.
