calling all Beegus

I spotted this homemade Beegu online today

Got to be one of the best ever.  If anyone has any homemade Beegus that they would like to show off please do send me pictures.  You can post a link in the comments on this blog.  Might give Beegu-related prizes to the best ones...

plants... what can I call them but plants?

I am having a great time playing with the sound recording stuff on this phone.  It occurs to me that with a bit of planning I could actually make a real story this way...  One with exciting installments and a plot - instead of me just saying the first thing that comes into my head into the microphone.

This isn't that story, I'm afraid I just made it up as I went along as usual, but I did make a sort of first installment of that science fiction diary I proposed in the last post.  I used to love the BBC show Journey Into Space when I was small and I would love to do a series of my own in that vein. 

Have a listen...  It has much higher production values than previous efforts ^-^

a world of sounds... in Spanish

One thing I have discovered about my sister's second hand smart phone is that it makes it super easy for me to post things on Soundcloud again as it has a really great microphone and a sound-editing app.

I am thinking I might do some sort of science fiction diary thing...

In the mean time here are two ladies talking about language study.

Making children

I have been drawing in the Horniman Museum working on designs for The Children of Babooda.  It is early days but I am having fun so far.

my precious

So I just inherited my sister's old phone and have been dragged into the 21st century as a result.  And what can people do in the 21st century?? They can post pictures of stuff they like on Instagram!

WARNING! Do not click that link if you want to see anything other than toys from the eighties!

...On the other hand if you like toys from the eighties then we have something in common.  Click away!

In case you are wondering, Spud and Fox were the two names my parents were thinking of giving me before my Gran stepped in and vetoed them.  Probably for the best.

Soonchild sketchbook

I did a lot of development work for Soonchild as it was one of the first projects I was involved in after a four year lay off and I needed a lot of practise to get back in the swing of drawing stuff...   It just occurred to me that I should post some of that here!
