Getting Stuff Into and Out of Your IOS Devices
12 May 2012
Being an Apple ‘fanboi’ of long standing [I got my first mac way back in ’93] I love my shiny iPhone and iPad. But one bugbear I have with these gadgets is the way that Apple makes it so difficult to get stuff on and off them, without either using only Apple apps, like the execrable iTunes or using clumsy workarounds such as emailing files back and forward as attachments....

Another Hefty Scroodl Roundup –Part 02
11 May 2012
Here’s the next batch in ‘Operation scroodl Catchup. This lot takes us from 24th April to 07th May. Now the smart boys and girls amongst you will have noticed that there are less scroodls here than there are days between those two dates. “What has happened?…” I hear you cry, with your stupid faces twisted in confusion “Has our hero and role model failed in his challenge of doing a doodle every day for a year?...

Another Hefty Scroodl Roundup –Part 01
11 May 2012
I’ve been neglecting my increasingly froth-lipped scroodl repostings of late and I have so many accumulated in the reserve stash that, when I tried to upload them all at once, all smoke started coming out of Tumblr and a man shouted “Hey, you! Stop that, or you’ll break the internet!” Anyway, here’s the first batch. these were originally posted on scroodl between 14th and 23rd April. As ever, top British secret agent Colonel Wanderbury features quite prominently, fighting his ongoing valiant rearguard action against the despicable Baron von Brücken-Stempfl and his invading hordes of Nazi triffids....

Review: Starsky and Hutch
06 May 2012
Boyz on the Hoods [That was a clever pun, for my American readers!] Seeing as it’s a proven scientific fact that all popular culture created after the mid 1990s is complete shite, I’ve resorted to downloading complete TV series of classic television from ‘the good old days’ off the internet, to give me something to gawp at while shovelling my dinner into my gob, of an evening....

Not Your Usual Weekly Scroodl Round-Up
13 Apr 2012
As I’ve been enjoying a well-deserved week off work for Easter, I’ve been able to devote a bit more time, than the usual half-arsed effort at the end of the day, to my daily scroodls this week. So, I did a mini set, still featuring my fuckwitted creations, Wanderbury & co. but paying homage to iconic movie posters. See how many of them you can get. ——-... [ Read More ]
No.100 –One Hundred, Not Out!
08 Apr 2012
My one hundredth scroodl. Go me! Having donned his best driving bra and taken a firm grip on his joystick, Colonel Wanderbury is looking forward to an exciting evening’s racing, when he discovers to his horror, that the rampaging triffids have completely smashed his Scalextric! [With apologies to B-movie fans, everywhere!] ... [ Read More ]

Huddersfield Tapestry
03 Apr 2012
For the past two days I’ve been in Huddersfield at the Subject Specialist Conference, which is part of my PGCE/Cert. Ed. Given that the entire course up to now has consisted entirely of essay writing and spreadsheet sucking, I was expecting the conference to be similarly creativity-sapping. So imagine my delight when, on arrival, we were all given long strips of paper and invited to make some kind of ‘artistic reflection’ during our two days there.... [ Read More ]
Mini Review: The Last Station
31 Mar 2012
One of the websites I frequent is currently holding a poll to find the “Worst Film Ever”. I added my tuppence worth to the debate and then realised that, with a bit of cynical recycling, I could rehash my post there as a review here . So here it is. Apropos of abso-bloody-lutely nothing, save the fact I’ve not actually written anything for a while, just been re-posting my scroodls:... [ Read More ]

Floor Plan
06 Mar 2012
More work done on the set for Project Innocence, this Monday. At the weekend, for the good of the team, I put myself through the soul-destroying hell that is a visit to B&Q. After being harangued by Alan bloody Titmarsh on loop tape in the garden department, searching in vain for the right sized wood and then futilely trying to find a price on the not-quite-right sized wood, which was all they had —I emerged broken but unbowed and loaded up my van with some timber and hardboard sheets....

All the World's a Stage
25 Feb 2012
As self-appointed “Person Who Stands at the Back, Pointing at Stuff” and general dogsbody for the Animation 2nd years stop-motion “Project Innocence” it fell to me to knock up lovingly hand-craft the stage, within which the ‘magic’ will take place. A few weeks back me and Stefan did a bit of setting up cameras, fiddling with tripods, measuring distances etc. in the dirty room at college and arrived at a set of dimensions which constituted the maximum field of view we were going to work within....

Seventh Weeks Worth of Scroodls
19 Feb 2012
I’m afraid the Post-It note offerings have continued into a second week. [it’s just so much more convenient than dragging my sorry arse all the way over to the computer and setting up my Wacom tablet!] I also seem to have created a monster; namely Colonel Wanderbury and his arch-enemy Baron von Brücken-Stempfl, who seem to have taken over my scroodls, at the moment. Trouble is, having given spawned the two eejits, I havenae the heart to kill them off.... [ Read More ]
Sixth Weeks Worth of Scroodls
11 Feb 2012
This week, depending on how charitably disposed towards me you’re feeling, I’ve either been “pushing the boundaries of what constitutes an art medium”, or “being a lazy bugger”. However you want to dress it up, it means i’ve mainly been doing quick 10-20 minute doodles on Post-It Notes. Normal service will be resumed as soon as arse is once more in gear. ———... [ Read More ]
