THE CORNISH BAKERY

My latest speed draw film…

CornishProbably about number 120, I am devoting one of my precious blogs to this little film because it was such fun to do and, according to the illustrious client, pretty damn good. In fact this is what Lucy said. “You’ve made our day! It’s absolutely delightful and a truly innovative way to show the information…”

Can’t think why I should have repeated that…

Because a very special person called Tony Thornby manages to get me high on the ratings on Google, i get calls from all over the place. This one was from the girls at The Cornish Bakery – a chain of really good ‘pasty and a whole lot more’ cafés.

By the time we got chatting they had seen some of my speed draw films on http://www.duncancartoons.com/speed-drawing-films and thought it could be a fairly up way to get their message over to potential Cornish Bakery staff. I went to Bristol to discuss the whole thing, and ended up submitting a script that was changed a bit but still retained the spirit of my bon mots. A storyboard followed, voiceover artist found, and before I knew it I was drawing away under Alan Fenemore’s prying camera. Lovely result –

I love doing these things – they give me an unique opportunity to show off what I can do, and delivered so fast that any mistakes are soon covered over. I have another six speed drawing films on the go at the moment – long may it continue.

In the light of all this excitement I have just spent the morning with my friend Stuart who singlehandedly updated my website to include (a) loads of new speed draw films to replace the rather tired old ones, and (b) my very own online shop, where eager punters can get Duncan cartoons printed beautifully on T-shirts, phone cases, hoodies, canvases, tote bags, mugs and cushions. While I’m in the mood to reproduce website links of every description, a quick way to get to this treasure trove is to go to RobertDuncan.redbubble.com

Try it. You know you want to…
