Beach Huts

“Do you remember the beach hut where that photo was taken, Mum?”

2017-03-05a

Of course I do, dear. It belonged to a friend of your uncle.

“The huts were on a spit of sand between the river and the sea. I remember wood splinters and cold sand on my feet when I walked between them.”

“They cost nearly a quarter of a million each now, those huts, Mum.”

I don’t believe you.   “Time passes Mum … and prices rise.”

Beach Clothes

You must remember us going to the seaside. When you were little you would run around in your knickers and vest. We had a photo of you … holding up a fist full of wet sand, looking all pleased. I thought you were going to eat it.

You were that kind of child. Always putting things in your mouth.

Clothes

So is this all right, then ?

“You’ve got clothes on.”

2017-02-17c

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?

All Change (The Cartoon)

2017-janvideo

Is that your cartoon?  “Yes, Mum.”  About time too … Is anybody going to watch it, though?

All Change from Mrs D on Vimeo….  In which I explain to my dead mother that I am switching from stop-motion models to drawn animation and she explains that I must have a cat in a cartoon. Or visuals to that effect…

All Made Up

“Of course you’re in the cartoon, Mum.”

2017-01-21b

Well I thought you wouldn’t leave me out. After all, this project is called “Syb & Me” … and I’m the Syb. 

“Yes, Mum.”

… and then there’s the cat of course.

“Mmmmn.”
