Who’s a good dog?

I toddled off with my friend Deb and saw Wes Anderson’s new movie, Island of Dogs this week. This is another stop motion masterpiece pulled seemingly from nowhere (well until I saw the trailer I’d never heard of it.)  

Its funny, touching and heartfelt and looks amazing. I reckon it’s safe to say that Mr Anderson is a ‘Dog person’ because cats and those who look out for them get short shrift). For the record I love both.  I love all animals except for baby Harp Seals. Those duplicitous, evil creatures deserve everything they get.

I guess after you’ve been on this planet for a while and loved movies more than most you really appreciate a movie that’s so wonderfully original and entertaining. I don’t want to say too much about it - I went along knowing next to nothing about it and really enjoyed the journey as it unfolded in front of us.

Five mighty hambones out of five and with plenty of gristle to knaw on later. 

A new Critter for the collection

Here's a new `Critter' image for the slowly growing collection.

And boy is it slow. Life has a way of getting in the way of plans. I had hoped to have enough images by mid year to begin selling at the markets here in Newcastle. Doing two versions of the one image slowed me down a bit. My `Artistic' advisor suggested I try selling sketches of my work as she felt they had more `life' and `energy'. We argued. I said `let me do both and do a feedback test on Facebook'.
She won.  (She always does).

So here's the first official one in my new style, and I'll get to work on some more.
