#175 - make a stop-motion animation

Aaaaah gotta love it.

A friend of mine is doing some clever illustration of these gorgeous "Guimelpods" - 
you should definitely take a peek. (here!) 
She's perhaps talking about doing some stop animation with them or 
something of the like - whatever it is, can't wait to see the results, shall have to keep you posted. 
Please tell me if you take a visit, I'd love to know what you think of her!

But indeed, stop animation - although the world of technology has developed far beyond it, 
it holds a lovely kind of appeal.
Like typewriters, letterpress and film cameras, I guess.

Here's this adorable stop-animation video I found this week :)
All to one of my favourite rags by Joplin, its inspired by old circus acts and Charlie Chaplin skits...

somewhat whimsical. Made of childhood stuff. 

Speaking of gorgeous childhood... 
why not give the lovely little ones you know, lovely things to wear? 
Free clothes yo! Head here: yep, here.
