Another Great One

It's so full of this very particular muppetish anarchic energy I so much love with everything Jim Henson.

So Good

Three old 1960s commercials featuring Jim Henson's La Choy Dragon. Commercials representing La Choy Chow Mein that is "Quick cooked in dragon fire!"

Creepy Yet Inspiring Character

The most creepy yet inspiring film character of my childhood was the Child Catcher from 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' (1968), played by the great Sir Robert Helpmann (1909-1986).

Another One Million Dollar Gift I Brought Home From Florence

My childhood's most, most, most favourite TV cartoon series was 'Vicky The Viking' ('Wickie und die starken Männer'). So, guess what Nemo Academy's art director Luca Chiarotti made me as a gift, last week? An animation drawing from the original 1970s production! Thank you so much Luca for this amazing piece of animation art. And a million thanks to Laura for having told Luca that I loved (and still love) this very series so much.

New Toys

Finally, the new workstation is set up. First warm-up sketch with the new toys...

One Million Dollar Gift

Uber-talented Disney artist Francesco Guerrini made me a one million dollar present in Florence during my workshop's lunch break, last Saturday. He presented me with two sheets full of original drawings of him. One sheet with Donald Duck all over it, the other one with beautiful versions of my own birds designs. I was really, really blown away. Francesco has no idea how big this is to me.
