The other photo above is of the models made from last year, under the theme of the animated film Robots. My assigned Robot was the character Fender and it was quite an experience to see this model put on display in the art museum of Stoke.
It was also a great feeling to sit with Barry Purves in the cafe. We do see him every week for his project, but for him to seek you out and sit talking about opera, amongst all these other animators/enthusiasts, was really cool. His semenar on his passion for puppets was very enlightening and as always gave us all more inspiration to crack on with our own work.
