Now that I've distracted you and made you forget about HOW LONG IT'S BEEN SINCE I LAST POSTED...hello!
The cat doesn't have a shadow. Something terrible happened to it. We don't like to talk about it. (Don't cry, I just haven't painted it yet.)
I've been a bit busy of late, doing happy fun things. I also moved into a shiney new flat (in Sawf East Laaandan - that's how I say it), and then a few weeks later I moved into a shiney new (albiet chilly) art studio (which I WILL post about soon), and my poor blog has been neglected. I am a terrible pet owne...BLOG! I meant BLOG owner! But talking of pets, I also got a new pet for my shiney new flat. His name is Bear and he is a hamster.
Sorry for neglecting you, Blog. I have been rather busy doing wondrous things like drawing and writing and playing and building strange things out of cardboard and making not-very-award-winning short films with some children I know. Here is a still from our latest: Robot and Fluffy and The Great Hide And Seek Hunt. I did not come up with the title, but I MAY have done all the voices - The director (Mathilda, aged 7) MADE me! I showed it to some friends last night, and they weren't very impressed. They asked for subtitles. SUBTITLES! Mathilda and I are highly amused by our film though, and I think she made a marvellous director, so there.
Robot, the boy Robot.
I might, one day, post the film up on here. Maybe. Then I'll go and hide and leave Mathilda to collect the award.
Oh and 'ere is a doodle what I doodled recently:
And a scribbly girl I drew after waking up from a nightmare about, well, I've forgotten now:
I'm moving out of this little village I've been hiding away in for the past few months and heading back to London, so here's a country gent- type thing:
His name is Spangely Amaretto, and after painting him I realised he NEEDS one of these. Alas, that will have to wait until tomorrow because I need new glasses and so, quite frankly, I think I've broken my eyeballs. O_O
Seymour kicks dinosaur
This Seymour figure was made for my birthday by my lovely pal Jamie Bishop, based on a little character of mine. I thought Seymour was kind, but apparently not. He has been suitably punished.
