Naked stuff

Hey... been two posts in one week... It must be down time.
I just wanted to do another plug for a great blog my Welsh comrade, Mr. Matt Jones... the Tom Jones of cartoonists, put up a while ago: It's a site dedicated to the life drawing sessions from the gang over here at Aardman and there's some fantabulous stuff up there. Check it out. We've been off the naked train for the summer, but it starts back up again tomorrow, so I'm getting itchy to smack some Conte down on newsprint and draw on something real as opposed to the little Cintique TV-thing that I've become a slave to (how did we ever storyboard without the lens flare filter?).

Tis Autumn over here in Britain and I get to wear my plaid (it never really gets cold enough in LA for flannel)... brings my Canadian sap up, it does.

Enjoy the bums!

cloudy with a chance...

Well... I don't usually mix business with blogging, but I've got to plug a movie coming out this Friday that I was lucky enough to be a part of. I haven't seen it in a while, but the last I saw... it was fantastic and the crew behind it are some of the best in the business.

If you get a chance, check it out. I can guarantee some laughs (the directors... Chris and Phil... are two of the funniest human beings on the planet). And if that doesn't talk it up too much... I do believe this film could finally solve the arms race in Saskatchewan. Love and rainbows of sunshine are promised to all who see it.

That and a sandwich.

I'll mail you one.

I'm not begging though... I just have too many sandwiches.

pub doodle

I slapped these two down over a couple of pints with my dog sitting at the beer garden of our local pub, The Mouse, in the waning days of a soggy British summer. For some folk, a warm beach is the salve for all of life's slings and arrows, but give me a cozy pub where the bitter pumps comfort into heavy pint glasses any day of the week. Cheers all.
