As I started work at Siriol Animation in 1986, I missed out on working on their "SuperTed" series. But in 1990 I finally got to draw the famous bear for this poster to celebrate his 10th Birthday! Also because I worked on "The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" series I guess I was the perfect choice for this poster. The SuperTed 10th Birthday party was held at Cardiff Castle on Sunday 8th July 1990.

Happy Valentines Day!

Just to get you all in the mood for love, here's a short animation I produced in 2000 called "Lovespoons". It was the first of four commissions I was awarded by S4C's Short Short scheme. Using the music of Bolero and combining Welsh Lovespoons it was a homage to Torvil and Dean!
