Similarly I recently learnt that Americans don't use the phrase 'getting on my wick'.
Yesterday's commission saw me making dozens of 1:12 scale fiddly realistic candles with dripping wax, and minuscule wicks that I had to attach using jeweller's tweezers. The phrase "getting on my wick" sprang to mind for obvious reasons. Points if you bother to Google the definition and etymology!
Annie Awards on Saturday evening with friends from Dreamworks who worked on the film which won Best Animated Feature - How to Train your Dragon 2. However, it was hard to see The Boxtrolls not receive as much recognition as I think it deserved.
Nicolas Marlet (character designer on How to Train your Dragon 2) did a new drawing of me. It's meant to be me sitting at my local coffee shop, The Alcove, sipping tea.
Here are some quick candle photos from yesterday. They are not wax, but a blend of polymer clays with enough translucency that they do look like wax when you hold them to the light.
