    Cool crab! I’ve probably said it countless times before, but I’m the same with parties and crowds – I just can’t be doing with all that noise, and having to raise my voice just to talk to someone. And then there’s the obligatory hullabaloo over why I don’t want alcohol or ice cream. Ugh! If YOU were at the party, though, that would be different.…[Read more]

  • Ah, nice! I don’t have Netflix, so can’t watch that, but have heard lots of good things about it.

  • Yes, and it’s funny how it’s often stuff you think insignificant or aren’t entirely happy with that garners such a response. I think creators sometimes overlook the big picture, but there’s always someone out there who wants to see what you’ve made!

  • Wow wow wow, Charlie! What a beast! I got excited just at the mention of you opting for a motorcycle for the first time, and I hadn’t even seen the image yet. I think I can say you exceeded my expectations (and believe me, they were already suitably high). That is truly incredible! I can barely ride a bike, though, so I wouldn’t fancy my chances…[Read more]

  • Well, I’m glad I wasn’t alone in thinking the original a bit off. Perhaps that explains why the Beeb switched to celebrities – also, I imagine they’d feel more able to fire back should those mean judges cross a line! 😛

    Yeah, Portrait Artist is the highlight of my viewing at the moment. I’ll be gutted when it ends in a couple of weeks! There’s…[Read more]

  • They may be shades, but with glass, metal and reflections, it’s a hat trick for you! 😉 They look pretty cool too, though I’m sure I’d manage to make them look bad if I were to try them on – seems to be the way with most of them!

    I watched the first series of The Big Painting Challenge which was with regular contestants, and it wasn’t the most…[Read more]

  • “Look what you’ve done” is becoming a bit of a catchphrase for me at the moment, but it needs saying even for the umpteenth time this week. It’s crazy how much this place has blown up, but hardly a surprise – 1,500 days (and counting!) of joy forever wrapped up in those sketchbooks! And I think you should bring back the signature – be all retro…[Read more]

  • Yay for metal and glass! I was oddly fond of timepieces as a child and always wanted one of these. There was a show on after school called Bernard’s Watch, where Bernard could freeze time just by clicking his pocket watch. I wanted one even more after that! I don’t think I ever got one, though, I assume because my parents didn’t like the idea of…[Read more]

  • It was that windmill you painted which did it 😉 Aw, well I don’t know about inspiring, I mostly just talk nonsense. It has been a fun journey, and I’m sure there’s still quite a way to go yet!

  • That is hilarious! You’ve gotta love Essex!

  • They are adorable! And I’ll say what I said just yesterday – look what you’ve done! 😉 Social media and its trappings can be a drag, but when it’s done right, it’s brilliant. This place is the best!

  • That looks just as I remember it (he says as if he’s been – not sure I’d cope with Vegas or Paradise, but nice to enjoy the neon from a distance!) It is funny how it’s often the quicker, sometimes ‘lesser’ things that take off, though I suppose ‘lesser’ is the wrong word if it’s captured so many imaginations! If you want a great place sign, check…[Read more]

  • Oh wow! Look what you’ve done, Charlie!! It’s great to see it all collated like that. And here’s to addiction, well, at least where watercolour is concerned!

  • Ah, glad to hear it! I missed most of it so I need to check out the hashtag and see what craziness went down. The game is called RetroMania Wrestling and should be out early next year. It’s all 2D/pixel with arcade style gameplay so hopefully will be fun, fan or not.

    Yeah, I miss you too! Keep on doodlin’ and washin’, though I’m sure that goes…[Read more]

  • Haha, hiii Charlie! <3 It has been a while. I'm fine, just working on a video game at the moment and failing spectacularly to keep up with this place; I've made one post in six months. I don't know how you juggle all this stuff daily! I trust you are doing well too, and that World Watercolour Month was the usual triumph!

  • Yarr! Shiver me timbers! That be one grand galleon, even if it is a pirate ship. Amazing. Pirate stories always promise adventure and buried treasure, so it’s sure to be a fun journey.

    I don’t remember our video tapes coming in those cool colours! Oh, the memories: the horrifying sound of the tape being chewed up or worse, someone daring to tape over mum’s soap operas.

    We managed to get a DVD/VHS combo, which meant there was no need to get rid of the tapes and free up some space – there are loads of them sitting in my room, and…[Read more]

  • Happy birthday, Charlie! Here’s to never growing up! <3 Sounds like you've a great evening lined up, so make the most of it; it's one day where any amount of ice cream is allowed 😉

  • Aww, how could anyone resist that look? I’ve become a little obsessed with huskies recently – well, more than I was before – because of K’eyush the Stunt Dog on YouTube. It’s hilarious how clever and chatty he is – his social skills are better than mine! Check him out if you need a laugh 😛

    They’re amazing! It’s been unseasonably warm here over the last couple of days, which is quite nice, but snow! Snow wins for me – especially when it’s a Friday and there’s spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. Jealous! 😉
