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…

I Explain The Major Tom Effect To Syb

2016-01-16

I can see that it’s sad for you that David Bowie is dead, dear … but I don’t see why you’re quite so bothered about it.

“I think it’s because he was like … my own biographical Zeitgeist, Mum.”  What?  “… He was the same generation. The same geography when I was a kid. Streets not miles away from mine. I could have gone to the same school. Major Tom in his tin can – Space Oddity – I was at art college when that was playing on the radio.”

Oh, I remember you coming home from college for the holidays. I had to tell you off … your nails were filthy. “That was printing ink, Mum.”

Syb’s Ghost Story

2015-11-04

I was going to bed on the first night in the new house. Of course I was on my own because your father had died a long time before that. All of a sudden, I sensed a presence near my bed. Cold, just cold … and I knew it was a ghost.  

“What did you do?”

I said… I don’t know who you are but I don’t want you here. Go away. 

“Did it?”

Yes.
