Have fun today - don't eat too many sweeties!
Yesterday we went to the first screening of the Nudinits film at Canterbury Anifest. Took us a while to get there from Hampshire as the good old M25 was terminally congested which added an hour to our journey. It was worth it though, and I think the film went down well. You'll be able to judge for yourselves tomorrow when it will be available to see in it's entirety - I just cannot wait!

It is half term for British schools, which means a blessed break from the day job - it's been very tough lately, working with a little chap who I am positive has 666 tattooed somewhere on his body... So a peaceful week ahead and a chance to get on with the next dog portrait, some clearing up round the house, and at the end of the week, the first screening of Nudinits. I'm getting quite excited now, especially at the prospect of seeing all our work on a big screen and finding out what people think if it!

Well, initially you take a deep breath, gulp slightly and smile, saying it will be fine, of course I can. Then you have a couple of days of serious self-doubt and find anything else to do rather than tackle this knotty problem!
But thanks to the internet and a wealth of photographs of chocolate labradors, as well as a couple of mediocre extra photos of the spaniel pup, you bite the bullet and give it a go and find to your surprise that it all goes rather well.
Next up, a portrait of a black spaniel with some superb reference photos to work from!
N.B. Yesterday the lady who commissioned this came to pick it up - as soon as she saw it she burst into tears! She was still crying an hour later apparently - I think I got it right!

...an egg waiting to be laid.
On the easel : that double dog portrait...sigh...
On the needles: some unexpected bits for the animation!
