E Stings competition

I've been short-listed in the final 15 of the E Stings competition with "Dizzy Dave". Yee-haa! This is my second time in this competition but last time out I didn't win a sausage. So, fingers crossed for better luck this time!

In order to win one of the big prizes the finalists had to submit their treatment for another sting about Thursday Night Comedy on E4.

Below you can see my original submission (which will also appear on TV) and my scribbles and character designs for round two...

A statement from Bob

Good afternoon. My wife and I would very much like to congratulate the Brothers McLeod on winning the NHS Choices Cartoon Competition. We are, of course, sad that we didn't win but we very much enjoyed making our films and can't complain at losing out to "The Brothers" as they are indeed amazing animators... So jolly well done!

Unfortunately, Brenda hasn't taken the news quite so well and has gone on a bit of a bender. She's now drinking surgical spirits out of the clinical waste bin at the back of the Bristol Royal Infirmary.

I think it's time I checked her into the Alcoholism Recovery Program at the Clifton Clinic and started my new exercise regime.

Chow for now.

Mail Me Art 2

I haven't done any artwork for ages so the second Mail Me Art project provided me with a great excuse to do some good old fashioned drawing...

I decided to do one multi-coloured drawing on the back of a cereal box... chop it in half and post the pieces in two differently decorated envelopes on different days from different locations.

Whoever unites the pieces will open a portal and awaken the Ogdru Jahad; The Seven Gods of Chaos... or maybe not, we'll have to wait and see.
