So have you been filming your Angry Old Woman, dear?   “No, Mum. I’ve been drawing an animation for a LoopdeLoop challenge. The theme of this one is “Fear”.

Fear? Well that’s typical of you dear, I must say. Who in their right mind would want to make a cartoon about fear? … Apart from you of course.

What on earth is a GIF then?  “It’s a kind of moving image … a short, looping animation. Very short. And these days … more likely a video clip.”

I really don’t know what you’re talking about, dear.  “Neither do I most of the time. And probably not now.”  Oh you’d better just get on and show me one of your gifts then. “GIFs, Mum.”

“You’ve got clothes on.”

Yes. At the end of your cartoon … you said that I had to put some clothes on.  I said I didn’t need clothes because I’m dead. And you said you couldn’t draw me with no clothes on.

So I put this on. It’s a sundress. I found it in a photo on your bookshelf… Me on the beach with your Aunty … 1950 something. Remember?
