How am I driving?
This website turned one year old last week. So I thought I’d do a little stock take, see what’s working and so on. Find out what I can do more of, or better.
For that, I need your input.
So if you’d like to be involved, I’d love to hear a little about who you are and what brings you here. What are you interested in? What do you like or dislike? Does a specific topic bring you back? Did any particular post resonate with you?
And what am I missing? Is there anything you’d like me to cover or would like views on that I haven’t yet touched on?
Please feel free to leave a comment below or get in touch directly via the little ‘contact’ section above. I’d love to hear from you and get your views, so that my little site becomes, well, still a little site but a better little site.
Thanks so much to all who have visited over the last year and especially those who have left comments (thanks Andy!) or who got in contact through other means. Questions, views etc. are always welcome, any time of year.
It was a quick year but, wow, a lot has happened. At Monster Animation, we made Punky, a little show about a girl with Down Syndrome. I put my all into developing Cosmo and, with the help of some amazing talent, put together a presentation for the Cartoon Forum. I gave a talk for Pegbar on Creative Disobedience, the one common trait in all my career jumps. My father passed away, which kind of sucked and still sucks. I wrote some articles for the excellent parenting website, Dad.ie and one about princesses and the messages we send to girls really took hold. It’s clear that is an issue a lot of people care about, mothers and fathers alike.
And, through it all, I spent time with my two amazing little girls ‘ Daisy and Alice. They can wind me up something rotten and then make me double over with laughter. They inform what I do and always remind me how big a responsibility we have when we make anything for children. As I said in one of my earliest articles on this site, EVERYTHING is educational. I see that every single day with my girls.
Yes, a packed year in uncertain times. I enjoyed sharing some of my thoughts with all of you here on the site and I hope you enjoyed some of them too. Here are a few posts I particularly enjoyed getting out of my system and onto a (virtual) page:
Thanks for popping by the site and, if you have the time, please do leave a comment or get in touch with feedback.
