Seeing as Blob is not in the film (...much) i thought it would be a good idea for Matt and Puddles to take over his introductory logo section in the film.

However it was the cat in the film called 'Jiji' who was the biggest inspiration in the film, his sarcastic attitude and great design really inspired the development of Puddles.
(One of the best sidekick characters Studio Ghibli have done so far!)
Screenshot update coming soon.

I would like to thank everyone for their kind comments on 'Blob and the Last Phoenix'
My next animation is titled 'Matt and Puddles' featuring a young man called Matt and his sarcastic talking cat called Puddles. A brief summary of the story is that Matt is tired of the city, with its noise and natureless environment. So unwillingly followed by Puddles, he decides to leave, there's just one problem. It's against the law! Not that anyone could leave, the city is surrounded by an ocean and blocked by a ring of rock. However Matt has been given instructions on how to leave. Will Matt and Puddles leave the city or fall into a trap? What's beyond the city?
Hopefully during this week i will be able to reveal a screenshot.

(Blob overhears two people planning an evil scheme)
The big butch guy sitting on the crate is Razza, he's a blacksmith and a man driven by money. Oppisite him although not much can be seen, is Ermot a weapons dealer who is too cowardly to lead but has no problem following. Both appear honest and hardworking but.... money can corrupt anyone.

Apologies for no images in this post but as a new project I have little to offer up to the eyes of the public. However the story of 'Blob and the last phoenix' has been hidden away in my two most recent animations. Phoenix hill where the last phoenix egg rests is able to be seen in both 'Blob and the Celestic Sisters' and 'The crystal of Life'. To see it in both films watch the films below and stop at:
Celestic Sisters: 1:35
The Crystal of Life: 2:21
Updates on the animations progress will be posted soon!
