Where did you get that great Yoda figure, Matt? Wow. Looks like some nice big life drawing there. Is that your studio? Cool.

This was taken back when I worked for Dave Edwards Animation in Cardiff, 1997- 1999. Dave is the man responsible for SUPERTED, Prince Charles' THE LEGEND OF LOCHNAGAR & The Animated Shakespeare.

I watched superted as a kid and loved it. I thought the animation was amazing! Then I saw it again a couple of years ago and was very disappointed. How camp is that yellow spotty guy?
Goes to show once again you should never revisit the good old days! Don't watch doctor Who either!

Gee thanks Boris, I think I prefer you commenting as Adriaan!
