Buon 2007!

I'm finally back from my holidays in Italy...it was really a great time, very quiet and relaxing as I wished..my mother is a fantastic sicilian chef and every single meal was a joy for the senses ;) I could enjoy sleeping till late as I love to, chatting with my sister and I had also the time to knit a scarf for Alfredo.. :)
The weather was pleasantly warm, especially in Rome, where I spent the first of the year..that city is just amazing, so full of beauty and history..
And now back to reality, with a terrible cold caused by the temperature difference! Yay!
So, since I'm not getting out of bed, I decided to upload "Marla" on the blog. I haven't watch it for ages and it looks sooo old to me...well, it was actually 2004 when the short was completed and the three little girls graduated...:) But I still love the style and the atmosphere we created, it brings me a lot of memories.
Here is the Link:

Hope you'll enjoy it and wish you all a lovely new year!
Ale

Keep well, and definitely, Rome is ABSOLUTELY amazing.

Ale said...

Thanks Marcos!
We must organize a trip this year.. ;)

Marcos Mateu said...

Too tempting. Honestly, the first time I ever landed at Fiumicino I felt the urge to move overthere for good, I'm not kidding you. (Obviously didn't happen...!)

Rasmus Norgaard said...

I'm confused... do you actually own a "teddy bear", that's not Totoro?!?

Ale said...

but my 369 totoro have been very welcoming with the little reindeer.

Sooo CUTE! HE ! HE!! Welcome back!

MickFred said...

yeah cute... big deal!
Can it load a trailer and drag it 12 miles to market? No? I thought not. Well neither can I, so that makes three of us (four if you count Alfredos scarf).
Did your mother offer to return my 'Green Cobblers' DVD? It's been fourteen years now and i am begining to worry

Christian said...

nice reindeer!

Armand Serrano said...

Congratulations on your new buddy! Wish you all the best this year.

bsleven said...

Your work is really nice. I like your storyboards.

elephantmarchblog said...

you kidding? I love Aisling! I can't wait to see that bloody movie: I hope canada get a theatrical release. I wanted to work on the movie but I guess the timing was bad; I hope to work on future projects there.

Sorry for ranting, I love your blog too, I've been here a few times. There's so much I could learn from you folks in Ireland

Ale said...

I agree with you, they are making really nice things here in Cartoon Saloon. 'Skunk fu' is very cool, i've been boarding some episodes last year and it was lots of fun!
and now i'm animating the little Aisling ;) i love her too.
thanks for coming, man!

elephantmarchblog said...

That's amazing. I'd love to see some of the rough animation; she's such an endearing design, with her bewitching eyes and hair and the simply body. I know I a guy from my college who's boarding on it (i think he is, anyway), his name's Leo Ito. sound familiar. If so, tell him I said hi.

Ale said...

of course I know Leo!! he's such a nice guy. he's boarding on skunk now.
anyway, i hope i can post some linetest, some day....;)
