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.

The Argument Draws An Audience

I’ve got the tea… perhaps I should magic up a biscuit as well.

“Now you’re being silly, Mum.” Oh…silly, am I?  “You’re just trying to put the wind up me.”  What do you mean “put the wind up you”?   Sshhh… Mum!”  Don’t you “Sshhh” me. You always were a bit above yourself, Missy.

Mum, stop it. People are staring.”

Tea Causes Argument

“I’m sorry, Mum. You can’t drink a cup of tea. You’re dead.”

2015-10-12

I like a cup of tea. I’ve always liked a cup of tea. And I want one now. And if I’m dead, I can jolly well do what I want.  “No, you can’t.”  Yes, I can.  “Prove it.”  Prove what?  

That you can do anything you want now you’re dead. Go on… Make a cup of tea.”
