We recently went to go see Shaun the Sheep, which made me incredibly happy and nostalgic. So I'm doing a flashback post about our trip to Aardman Animation Studios. Once upon a time, Abe worked on “Creature Comforts America." The animation side of things took place in England, and in September of 2006, I tagged along with him for a quick (and I mean quick) business trip.
Bristol, England itself is adorable. I really dug that little city.
This was a few years before I started blogging. I think this may have been the only photo of me taken with food...
...we were obviously much more interested in this!
A peek at all the models...
...and their sets!
It was such a treat, considering how huge a fan I was (and still am) of their art.
Afterwards, we spent a day in London before heading back to Los Angeles. Later that year, Abe surprised me with this commissioned clay statue of Julius. It's one of my favorite birthday gifts ever.
