Je suis tres heureux!

I have been waiting so long to see Sylvain Chomet's next work of art and it is showing right now at the EIFF. Watching the trailer made me feel all homesick for Edinburgh and it looks so lovingly made. I know he lives in Edinburgh so I'm glad he loves it as much as I do!
Another amazing little animation that I am excited about is an adaptation of Shaun Tan's "The Lost Thing" . It is good to see some really good 2D animation and more traditional art techniques in with the CG which I'm hoping is going to have some sort of vogue some time soon.

Cool beans

I wanted to make a series of time lapse pictures of some seeds I've grown, but my lack of commitment and the need to move the plants around alot got in the way! So here are some random pictures I took as they were growing, some of them are pretty big now so maybe I'll update so you can see how they look. I'm too scared to move them out of the pots for fear of slugs/snails eating them, its like they are my babies and I don't want them to go out into the big bad world!!!
