Exciting times....

There hasn't been much time for blog updating over the last few weeks... very very busy.

For a start I've been working on a short film proposal for funding from the 4mations scheme (run by channel 4). Being my usual self, I got a bit carried away trying to get it perfect so I ended up not sleeping a great deal over the last few weeks. Anyway, now it's just a case of wait and see.

On top of that, I may (fingers crossed) have a big commission (about 2 months worth of animating) but I can't really say much more about that at the moment...
'Monday to Friday' (the short I've been working on with the monsters in the factory) may have to be put on hold for quite a while!

These truly are exciting times for me!

Also, if anyone is interested, I have a temporary website up (until I have the time to build a proper one), but it does have a gallery full of my woolly monster artist-toys:

You can also see a selection of my woolly creations on Flickr:

Exciting times indeed, Ceri! You deserve every success. Your animations and woolly monsters are witty and warm.

I'm so honored to have a famous Ceri Original made for my project!

[sigh] Comission job fell through, but 'tis still very encouraging to think that a London marketing agency were considering comissioning animation from me!
Hopefully they'll consider me again in future.

Well, back to working on 'Monday to Friday'....
