Farewell to the “other” Ronnie, (Corbett) who passed today. One of their scripts inspired this creation…
Been plugging my didactics event merrily, here’s one in the Derbyshire Lane Fish Bar. Should get some good results from there 😉
It’s the hottest day of the year today and tomorrow I must brave the M25 to get to an origami video shoot. It may even require use of the air-con in the car! Worryingly, they want to see me in the video, not just my hands. Is the world ready for this?
I found myself volunteering to teach at a children’s festival in Norfolk Park for a few hours today. Non-stop fun & games, for which I wore my favourite hat…
I had several pieces of delicate work to post to a client, so I took the expedient route and drove over the moors to Lancashire, the sleepy town of Wilmslow to be precise. I recently altered my satnav settings to be less obsessed with motorways and speed, so it took me a nice back route along some winding country lanes, like this one.
What a wonderful surprise just arrived, a t-shirt from the aforementioned group. The Madfolder aka Leplieurfou has created some extraordinary Zorg animals by a process of cross-breeding (allegedly a common practice in France). Check them out here. He is a gifted technical folder and designer, with an eye for left-filed subjects. He’s also mad as a box of frogs, but I love him all the same. The T has a crane-like bird with an alien’s head. He even blames me for the original concept!
Here I am, butch as heck. How did a copy of my latest book sneak into the shot? I’ve no idea…
I’ve been looking for (and struggling to find) a way to find a couple of my books within Japan, that I could buy and post to a potential publisher there. Anyway, whilst checking amazon out, I spotted these utterly stupid prices for my Encyclopedia of Ori. I just hope nobody actually pays these prices. What are they thinking of??
I recently spent a happy night at the famous orivideographer Sara Adams’ home – I had work in Germany and flew from Munich, so it seemed a good idea to arrange a visit. We had some great food & conversation and I met her two lovely children – here I am scaring the bejaysus out of Niklas 😉
I’ve been making purple cows (don’t ask!) for a client. I left my final sheet on the bed ready for trimming and nipped to the loo. I came back to find the awful sight shown below! Arghhhh! Cue a trip to the paper shop – hope they still have stock left!
