Thank you very much! How very lovely, 100 followers. Here is a picture of another post card from ages ago featuring a still from Jonah and the Whale which was an animation for the series Dog and Duck. It was a story in Arnold Adler's cut out theatre! Which is why it is all in flat levels. It's a cut out theatre!

Morning. Here is a picture of the stairs of the Watershead which is one of the venues holding the Encounters Festival. The 'Cineman' design is Mr Paul's and if you remember in an earlier post I showed you a load of poses of the 'Cineman' we sent to them. Well you can see them here and on the posters, bags, billboards etc. If you go to the festival then have a look at the program, bottom right corner, there is a flip book from us in it. Encounters is running until Sunday.

Hello and good afternoon. Here is a picture of some character designs we did for a project which you can watch here. You need to click on the video to play it. Our clients were EMO. They went for the number 10 designs in the end which you can see. 11, 12,14 and 15 will be appearing in something else soon which you will be able to see here. The video was made by Mr Phil, Miss Jane and Mr Paul.

Hello. Here are some images of some effect work we did that was inserted in a program about Global Warming for National Geographic. This particular one was to illustrate the break up of a glacier. Mr Duncan did the building and animation and Mr Paul did the compositing.

Here is a picture of the model sheet for Musty's canopic jar (Duamutef).
When a body was preserved as a mummy, the internal organs were taken out quickly after death, as they would rot. All the same, the ancient Egyptians believed that it was important to preserve them alongside the mummified body. The heart, the 'seat of understanding', was left in place. The liver, lungs, stomach and intestines were placed in four different containers.
The wooden lids of these jars represent the Sons of Horus, four minor gods who protected the organs that they contained. They are: the falcon-headed Qebhsenuef (intestines); the jackal-headed Duamutef (the stomach); the baboon-headed Hapy (the lungs), and the human-headed Imsety (the liver). These were named 'canopic' jars by modern Egyptologists.
There, bet you didn't think you were going to get a bout of knowledge today did you?

Here is another rough for one of the backgrounds for Frankenstein's Cat. This was for the end of the episode 'HayDay' where Lottie and Nine get carried off into the sunset by the ants!
As you do!
