Rikki-Tikki-Tavi 1975

Another one of Chuck Jones' wonderful projects based on Rudyard Kipling's story and narrated by Orson Welles. His adorable rendition of Rikki and the boy is truly inspiring indeed and the execution style of the character's expressions and reactions are truly one of Chuck's signature trademarks. I'm so glad he had worked on these gems when he did,something apart from what we're all used to seeing among the many MGM and Looney Tunes cartoons.

Hey really nice work you have here - an inspiration. Your character designs are superb.

I notice your from Malayisa - I spent 3 months there last year. My girlfriend is Malaysian. Im just wondering what the animation industry is like out there?

Will be back

Mike : Definitely. I'd buy a copy.

Grigory : Aaa,thank you so much,Grigory. I love your wild skills! It's all very inspiring indeed.

Ken : Ah really? The aniamtion industry here is still very much in dire need of proper training and pros to show them the right direction. We're still very much young in the field as compared to other places,but hopefully we can catch up. Let me know whenever you're back here in M'sia. Perhaps we can meet up and chew over some creative rags,eh?

Hey Sandra, I hope things get better out there soon, it would be great to see animation coming from somewhere other than the usual US Europe and Japan. I had actually heard of Saladin before seeing your blog, but I checked out the trailer for the first time - its looking hot!

For sure, I may be back in Malaysia in the near future, If I am Ill let ya know. Chewing on creative rags sounds good
