the circle is broken

My Tiny Pencil comic is beginning to take shape and the clowns, that began as bits of crab and otter and such from the Horniman, are becoming proper individuals in my mind.  It is a sad tale... and also funny.  It's about clowns, what else could it be?  Here is the opening sequence as individual drawings:

More soon!

I have been back to the Horniman again. This time I was looking for bits and pieces to use in the design of six clowns that will feature in my Tiny Pencil comic...

As I did with Loaf magazine I will post pictures of the comic whilst it develops.  Script and layouts next!

calling all Beegus

I spotted this homemade Beegu online today

Got to be one of the best ever.  If anyone has any homemade Beegus that they would like to show off please do send me pictures.  You can post a link in the comments on this blog.  Might give Beegu-related prizes to the best ones...

plants... what can I call them but plants?

I am having a great time playing with the sound recording stuff on this phone.  It occurs to me that with a bit of planning I could actually make a real story this way...  One with exciting installments and a plot - instead of me just saying the first thing that comes into my head into the microphone.

This isn't that story, I'm afraid I just made it up as I went along as usual, but I did make a sort of first installment of that science fiction diary I proposed in the last post.  I used to love the BBC show Journey Into Space when I was small and I would love to do a series of my own in that vein. 

Have a listen...  It has much higher production values than previous efforts ^-^

a world of sounds... in Spanish

One thing I have discovered about my sister's second hand smart phone is that it makes it super easy for me to post things on Soundcloud again as it has a really great microphone and a sound-editing app.

I am thinking I might do some sort of science fiction diary thing...

In the mean time here are two ladies talking about language study.

Making children

I have been drawing in the Horniman Museum working on designs for The Children of Babooda.  It is early days but I am having fun so far.
