Wrapping Up

I'm sure I had short hair and was clean shaven (and had working feet) when I began this book... Apologies to anyone I owe e-mail, phonecalls, violin recordings. I haven't been much of a person in weeks.
Anyway, the book is done done at last (bar changes, endpapers, and cover but that's always a separate project in itself). I worked all weekend and sent it off yesterday. It's called Red Ted and the Lost Things and is written by Michael Rosen. I'm not sure when it will be published.

Open brackets:

Shall I keep it? Close brackets.

Now I'll take a bit of a rest and then begins work on the tv show. I won't be able to publish much about that here since I have to sign confidentiality papers etc.

In other news: I think I'm going to learn how to make my own wooden-soled shoes in the style of British Clogs, since I've tried every shoe in London and nothing much helps with my foot. Anyone know where I can get some Sycamore logs?

Oh and obviously the violin on this recording of Poor Lazarus by the Jangadeiros has nothing to do with me, and the windy-mountain-top guitar solo nothing to do with Greg Box. Yo Zushi is right out of the picture too.

I'm pretty sure it is me playing the accordion in this video though, and maybe some of the electric guitar? It's my banjo Yo is playing as well. But Zoe gets to do all the running about on the beach...

For the sake of history

Re. Earlier post on rubber glove bagpipes:

My dad pointed out that it isn't a new idea.

In other news I worn my feet out even more using irony (searching for shoes to quiz my podiatrist about). Half the keys on my keyboard are suddenly all busted and I'll post some actual drawings/book things soon.

Ooh, ooh look over at Crista's blog at the post about the Beatrix Potter puppet/costume designs. Amazing! They give me all kinds of sneaky ideas for my tv show that are probably quite above my station
