Comic!

Here it is! The first Aardman anthology comic-book.  Featuring artwork by Aardman artists past & present 'Tales of The Spiffing' is available for pre-order at the project blog

The book has a British theme - my contribution is based on a real-life incident that occurred over the summer in North Wales. 81 year old Bert Forking rowed out into high seas to retrieve his neighbour's wheelie bin.  Picked up by life-boat rescue the story made the national press.

Wowzers! Excellent looking stuff Matt- I look forward to my free copy!

We're out of milk, sugar and cotton buds. I've tidied the kitchen YET again and have hung your underwear out back to dry.

See you tonight darling, enjoy your day at work.
