Return of cuddlecore

Wow, I've been knee-deep in Angora Napkin projects lately and having a ball!

First off, the Angora Napkin graphic novel is well under way. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I've loosened up and decided to just have some fun with these characters. I'm also making every effort to avoid cross-hatching ANYTHING for a change. I'll post a couple of pages from the book in a little while.

Before I started work on the book, I dug out all the old Angora Napkin binders and took another read through one of the storyboards Nick and I worked out a number of years back. I've always wanted to make this into an animated short and now it's slowly taking shape!

Here's a few snippits from "The Day the Music Died" -or- "Abracadavar". (think: 'Rocky & Bullwinkle' when you read the title).




I also want to give a big shout out to Lisa Marr for permission to use "My Chinchilla" in the short!! Lisa was part of the Vancouver Indy band cub (92-97) and other bands like Shonen Knife really inspired the creation of Angora Napkin, so it's really super cool to have some of that music in there! THANKS LISA!!!
