My recentbeendoingishness…..

Right so what have I been doing lately….

Spent a splendid weekend in London recently. Stayed with the lovely Silver AJ and Andy who we just dont see enough of any more..
Did some shopping. Bumped into Jonathan Ross (literally) he nearly knocked me over in his enthusiastic dash towards the huge HelterSkelter in Selfridges… dint even say sorry… do you know he is Orange in real life…. Hmmm orange skin in a violet suit.. Nice!
Later We ran into Richard Taylor and a bunch of WETA fellows. I had a brief chat with Mr. Taylor and gave him my card as, well, you never know.(If anyone from WETA is reading this…. yes I would love to work with you guys. And I married a New Zealander so there should be no trouble with permits and stuff either…..) Then we realised Alan Lee was signing books so That was another nice surprise. Bryony had the good fortune of picking up a copy of Faries which had already been signed by Brian Froud so she was able to get the full set…
We then went to the 2000AD Zarjaz show for which I did this piece.

Met some friends. Had a drink which was free but horrible..but free. Met some people I talk to in Forums but have not met before in the real world.. Looked at the amazing art. Pics here :

Since then have seen some movies.. Narnia… Hmmmmm! Not bad but has some of the worst blue/green screen work I have ever seen. All the Weta stuff was top notch though..
And Kong which truly is magnificent. Lots of lovely little tips of the hat to the original and some nice references to other stuff like Brain Dead… A truly great re-make. Spot on…. go see it it’s a blast.

This last week i have been locked away making a splendiferous Xmas gift for my wife. I will post pics after Xmas as its a surprise.. I will be reshuffling the website too then as its quite out of date now.
