Thanks for the comments guys, appreciate it.

 

Here's a weird wee creature for ya: eejitus ai-ai-ai. It's always on the look out for trouble from any angle. It'll waddle up when ever it can. It's just not easy to run when you've got eyes between yer legs......!

You've got one heck of an imagination, George! :D  Still absolutely loving your little guys! :D

 

Incidentally, I'm anxiously awaiting the book... I can imagine reading it with my son when he's old enough! :)

Thanks guys!

 

MattP: By the time I get it finished (and hopefully published), you're son might be old enough to read it himself. It turns out my writing of these creatures is skewing a bit older than the standard kids picture book. It's going to be a short chapter book with illustrations aimed at 8-10yr olds. That's the plan.

 

Of course, I'll be using AD and possibly AP to illustrate this book (s) with.....

 

Can I ask what you'd expect from an eejits story book (always gathering opinions and loo0king out for ideas!)?

 

Thanks again guys, :D

 

George

I'd imagined it as a series of books, each book follows one of the characters and their interactions with some of the other characters as they go on a task to do a certain thing... Basically in a similar vein to most other kids books (Mr. Men for example) but with a more modern, slightly cheeky (parp-gag-related) sense of humour to make kids smile! :)  That, and bright, bold, fun, larger-than-life characters :)

Credits! :P

 

Naah! Seriously I like the Mr Benn approach: an eejit, an adventure/task and suitable ending/moral tale, without being patronising. Yup, I've got the book, the DVD and a few of the limited edition 6 inch statues.

 

How's the PIF ideas sitting with you? Want to carry on or have you got more fresh ideas? Either way, you are in the honoured position of having the support from this forum users and staff alike. We expect great things from you mister.

 

PS

 

other PIFs to whet the appetite

  • Learn to swim
  • Cross the road safely, without gawping into yer phone
  • No playing with matches...remember that toasted clown?
  • Helmets: use your head (Headway Foundation)
  • Lights! Don't be so dim; get them on your bike! (Deaprtment of Transport/British Cycling)
  • Dentistry: we don't bite; come to us sooner, rather than later! (NHS) (eejitus tweefium)
  • Social networking: trouble online? Call our hotline! (Childline/NSPCC etc)

There's plenty more from where these come from

Hey Peter, good to hear from you again.

 

Yeah the story I'm in the middle of writing/editing/writing/procrastinating just now follows that approach slightly. I have an eejit who has something stupid/terrible happen to him at the start of the story, which then sets him on a quest around the Wee Glen to recity it, meeting the other characters along the way. I'm having trouble with a suitable moral/ending but I'm sure I'll get there.

 

Always loving the PIFs idea, but I think I can incorporate some of those ideas into future stories for my characters to deal with (in their typical eejit-y way)

 

It's been great the support you and others have given me so far. I really  look forward to releasing the first book and getting your opinions on it. Can't wait.....

 

George

Did you miss me? (Christopher Eccleston/Dr Who).

 

If you want me to have an input to your early scripts/draft; I'd be honoured; to be the one of first to review them. Just PM me.

 

I have also noticed the Challenge channel's cartoon characters idents, look very similar to your Eejits. This means that your work is already at the pro standard. You just need deserve that lucky break. :)

 

Thanks for enjoying my PIFS!  B)

Thanks Peter, appreciate the comments. I'll let you have a peek at the story as soon as it's finished. I've working on the character designs at the moment, but I've finally got the structure sorted out and what I want to write, so now it's a case of getting it down on paper and making it funny.

 

Haven't seen the Challenge TV's characters. Tried looking online but couldn't see anything.

 

Thanks again for the encouragement and support,

 

George

 

P.S New creature on it's way shortly......

Here's a long awaited new creature for ya. He went through a couple of transitions, before I finally landed on the pose but he's here, bouncing along on his squeaky wee butt.

 

Have a look at my website for his description/backstory....

 

Cheers,

 

George

Peter,

 

Pretty cool characters they've got going on there at Challenge. Nice designs but with more human touches/features than I have in my creatures (thankfully!)

 

Thanks for sharing......

Woohooooo!! There's finally a new eejit in the gallery (it's been a while)......

 

Have a peep at eejitus softfruitguardium; protector of unprotected soft fruit everywhere and probably the only creature in the world to own a banana guard!

 

 

 

Enjoy!
 

George
