Just got Up; studied some acting sketches from one of my favorite bits of animation in the movie; when the bird's saying goodbye to the three characters, conveying her attitude towards the three of them: deep affection, condescending fondess, and resoloute mistrust.



Some other sketches for the two "Bubble Hub" twins. I don't know whether it expresses strong misogynism or a lack of it, but it was inspired by, in my opinion, girls excessive apprehension over their waistlines; or in the case of "blue-hair" (name in progress), an unusual lack of it...
Roald Dahl was such a huge part of my childhood, looking back and remebering all the old kids books. Per usual, the name meant absoloutely nothing to me. I love how tackfully gory half of them were, hee hee. Roald had a knack for tapping into childrens love of violence and dismemberment without ever crossing the lines of good taste or intelligence.
Funnily enough "The Giraffe and the Pelly and me" was the one I remeber the most fondly, despite the fact that it was probably his most innocuous...
Curious to see the Fantastic Mr. Fox, which is one of his I missed as a child and finally read in the light of the the approaching movie.
