I made an animation about my partner and her friends’ ongoing legal case – to get sign-language access at entertainment events and venues. They have a Crowdjustice funding page over here – it’s a great cause; go and give them loads of money!
I drew a sketch portrait of Ben, and then he drew a portrait of me. I think Ben did the better drawing!
I may have been watching too many Marvel superhero films lately….
Recently we went on holiday to France. It was great! The highlight, for me, was Nantes, which seems to be a really quirky, fun little city. I loved following the green line and finding all the art installations and exhibitions that were going on. In fact, I almost want to run away and start my own little bijou animation-design studio business out on the island, but, (A); I am the world’s worst business person, and (B); I am also the world’s worst speaker of French. I can’t even speak Breton. And (C); I probably wouldn’t get any work done, because I’d be too busy trying to get a ride on the elephant.
Anyway, I digress. I really enjoyed exploring Nantes, and I think everyone’s favourite bit is Les Machines de l’ile. I couldn’t afford any of the expensive tourist tat though, so I’ve decided to draw my own.
I’m running in the London Marathon tomorrow. To try and calm my nerves a bit, I’ve been drawing some of the things I have to take with me.
I’m running for National Deaf Children’s Society. Massive thanks to everyone who has sponsored me – I never expected that I’d be able to raise the amount I have. There’s still time to donate if you haven’t already.
Either way, you’re more than welcome to point and laugh at me tomorrow, puffing my way around London.
