Happy, Happy, Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you all had lots of fun ringing in the new year… I couldn’t have had a nicer one – good music, good company, it snowed, and I even got a kiss at midnight 😉

It’s been a hell of a decade hasn’t it?  I hope it’s been mostly good for you, and I hope you’re all as excited to be heading into a new one as I am.  A big thank you to you all for reading my blog, and for your feedback and comments 🙂

Khoda is a mind blowing animated short film made from 6,000 paintings over two years, by the incredibly talented Reza Dolatabadi.  There are no words…. watch and enjoy.

A stop motion lego tribute to 8-bit video games 🙂  Took 1500 hours to make, seemingly, and I reckon it was worth every second!  I ❤ stop motion…
