The past few days have been crazy getting ready to move to The Netherlands – that’s right, I’ll be there for a year on an MA course. Very exciting! But first, must pack.

Last week I animated another stanza of the Mario film. This one says: “My second day off I saw her, and she was with a marshal. She said: “Mario, my lovely Marino, I am engaged to him, I shall never leave him.”

The screen is now all blue, the profiles of two faces appear, and they kiss.

The lines of the faces turn into lines of a furrowed brow, and the background turns from pure blue to a darker blue-green. The eyes frown.

In this show you can see more clearly how the marker eyes relate to the layer below, which holds the constantly moving paint background.

You see I am continuing the technique of having the marker on top and paint below. So far I’m really liking it. We’ll see how the technique changes when I am able to pick up the film again in Europe.
