I found a box containing the drawings from my BTEC Foundation animation, along with a good whiff of air left over from the mid 1990’s. I would have been 17 or 18 years old when I made this. It was originally shot on a roll of Super-8 film – which is now long lost to the mists of time.
So I decided to re-shoot using 21st Century technology (a creaky old iPad).
Now I’m able to watch it again, I can confirm that I still don’t have a clue what’s going on, but I do remember having a lot of fun making-it-up-as-I-went-along. I think there is a gangster clown in it, and it is his birthday.
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.
In 7 weeks time, I shall be running in the London Marathon. Eek!
With the snow interrupting my training regime this week, I decided to draw a picture instead, to try and motivate myself. I’ve also been re-reading Terry Pratchett’s The Colour of Magic recently, which might explain the Death character popping up.
I am now three weeks into my OFFICIAL London Marathon Training Programme. As you can see from my diagram below, I’ve been working very hard.
I am running mainly for self-serving glory, and mid-life-crisis reasons, but I am also going to try and raise some money for the National Deaf Children’s Society. I have a pink branded vest to prove it!
Any donation will be very gratefully received, and will also help me to run faster. Thanks!
