Thanks to everyone who responded to the auction of original artwork.

More original artwork has been made available, only this time for direct purchase rather than auction, with 50% of the price going to assist with Japan's earthquake and tsunami relief through Artists Help Japan.

The title says it all. "Sumo Lake" has had over 100,000 views since being posted publicly on Vimeo less than a fortnight ago.

Now I know I haven't had every one of those two hundred thousand eyeballs go the full three minute distance and love every frame of it, but that's still a lot of punters.

Just might be something in this whole interweb thingy after all …

A Good Week for Sumo Lake

Indeed it was. With the passing of the last of the festival entry restrictions holding it back, "Sumo Lake" was put online. The good folks at Cartoon Brew gave it a mention, and the hit counter has been running like a dodgy taxi meter ever since. As of this moment, over 30,000 pairs of eyeballs have gazed upon "Sumo Lake" and along with the many kind and complimentary comments, it's a little overwhelming.

Then last night I had placed in my hands this little beauty for "Best Animation" at the South Australian Screen
Awards.  It was a fabulous evening. Those that were there will know it was a memorable event that we'll all have trouble remembering.

Thanks to the Media Resource Centre for being such great hosts, and big thanks to GooRoo Animation for stepping up and sponsoring this award. Onya, guys!
