Welcome to the Life Form Design blog – – –

This is the new blog for Life Form Design, ‘Tertiary’ the novel and various rolling notes and ideas.  Nothing much here yet, I’m setting up the page and will be back soon.

The heading image is artwork for ‘Tertiary’.  It’s where we’ve been (maybe), not where I think we are going.  The novel, and this blog, are both concerned with positive futures and how we might get there.

About John Coppinger

John Coppinger was born 13th July 1947 in Kent. He went to Maidstone College of Art in Kent and later St. Martins School of Art in London. His fascination with science and art was the main reason he enjoyed working as a Scientific Model Maker for the Natural History Museum, London. He worked there till 1980 and some of his models are still on display today. After leaving the Museum, his career in the film industry started with Jim Henson’s “The Dark Crystal” (1981); a fantasy movie that reached cult status over the years. The second movie he worked on, “Return of the Jedi”, would become even more of a cult. He was an Animatronic Engineer for Stuart Freeborn; sculpting Jabba the Hutt and operating the character's eyes via radio control on set. Pursuing work in the film industry, John worked as a sculptor on various movies. A few examples are: “Greystoke” (1983), “Santa Claus” (1986), “Little Buddha” (1992), “Fifth Element” (1996), “Lost in Space” (1997), “The Mummy” and “The Mummy returns” (1998 & 2001) as well as the first three “Harry Potter” movies (between 2000 and 2003). Tertiary is his first published novel, combining his love for writing, science and art.
