Time's a wastin'

While my friends discuss travelling in France, I doodle aimlessly on 3" by 5" cards.

If I were to start a second comic, I'd have to do it on 3" by 5" cards. They're just so convenient. (Or at least 4" by 6".)

Also brilliant for animation, or so I've heard. Just draw a different 'frame' on each card, then flick through them quickly and presto! the Albion Fuzz movie! 'Course, you'll have to hum the soundtrack.

Which reminds me of my own brief animation career.

I've thought about doing animation in the past, but almost immediately realised each time that it would take a ridiculous amount of time and money to put my twenty-minute epics into effect. (Unless graphics tablets and copies of auto-inbetweening animation software start raining from the skies, that is.) Sadly, I'm also a detail fiend, which means my drawing style is rather laborious. Still, perhaps flick-booking might work...

Your animation was very chucklesome, by the way: good timing. Certainly better than the lumbering Asterix films I've been watching instead of revising lately.
