A beautifully animated French-Swiss stop-motion animation about the adventures of a courgette who wants to travel to Mars…. Oops, sorry, that’s not true! 😉
Do read on…
My Life as a Courgette tells the story of a little boy who likes to be called “Courgette” who has to go and live in a children’s home. Available on Film 4 for the next six days. Highly recommended for all age groups – even grownups 🙂 And it really is beautifully done.
Created during the lockdown by MC Stevie Youngculture, this is a brilliantly atmospheric music video, featuring Stevie’s own vocals. I love the sound system detail! 🙂
Feeling inspired? Stevie used the 3D animation tutorial download I posted a couple of weeks ago to make this. Why not have a go at making your own and send me the results? I promise I’ll post it on my Youtube channel and here – as long as there are no really rude bits or sweary words etc! 😉
If I had to choose a favourite children’s illustrator I think it would have to be Quentin Blake – I love his drawing style, and sense of humour! He has a Youtube channel which is really worth subscribing to, to pick up some excellent drawing tips, and just for the pleasure of watching him work.
Inspired? Draw your own Hornswoggler and send it to me, I’d love to see what you come up with 🙂
Stay well, guys, remember to take care and look after one another!
I just watched the premiere of a puppet show inspired by Jon Klassen’s book “I Want My Hat Back“. It was created entirely during the Covid 19 lockdown, for the Little Angel Theatre Company, here in the UK. It’s now on the Little Angel Theatre’s Youtube channel and available for the next 14 days, and it’s wonderful
Something to enjoy and smile about on this locked-down Easter Monday. Stay well everyone! 🙂
