Eee I ee I yo!

Curtis Jobling has remininded me of one of my favourite Funny Farm comic strips, just wanted to share it with y'all. Take a moment to enjoy Curtis' blog here, especially his trampoline prowess!

A Great Book

Its good to see the influence of 2D animation is still alive and well, as this book proves. I have high hopes for Open Season, its a 3D film that leans heavily on the huge history of 2D animation. This book shows some of that development and is well worth a look. Also I love the fur on the main character, we have had many fur related discussions for our rabbit characters, it would be great to get it looking something like this.

(Shame we don't have a feature film budget to experiment with, but we'll do what we can.)

Roof work

As some of you suggested we are now working on improving the roof of the farm by building individual tiles instead of using a texture map to do the job. This is a work-in-progress.
