izzy wizzy - its been busy!

It appears that i haven't blogged in quite a while, so i am going to post a few blogs in a row to catch up with what i've been up to! So first... introducing the final Marlo the Magician character design by Claire:
And here is our script:

MARLO the Magician walks in, tired, slumping on his coat with a CUP OF TEA in one hand as he gets ready backstage for a show.
He takes out his MAGIC WAND. While sipping his tea, he zaps his slippers into shoes.
Using his magic wand, he vanishes his tea cup.
Marlo then vanishes magic wand between hands, slides up sleeves and turns to face desk.
Picks up first GLOVE, puts in on and wiggles fingers. Meanwhile, the other glove comes alive and starts walking away.
Marlo goes to pick up second glove, notices its not there, looks around for it confused. He spots it about to jump off the table and catches it just in time, glove continues to walk while he holds it in mid air.
Marlo shakes glove annoyingly and puts it on his hand.
He then picks up his TOP HAT, brushes off dust, holds it over his head, breathes in, pauses...
As soon as the hat is on his head, he straightens his back, smiles, becomes the performer 'Marlo the Magician'!
The Magician bows, fans out some cards from thin-air, makes one card jump to the other hand, shows the card.
Carried away in the moment and caught up in practising his magic tricks, he takes off top hat, shows the inside, goes to introduce...
Marlo is in the same pose as the old poster in the background, which depicts a young Marlo the Magician introducing his magical assistant MERIT THE FERRET.
His happy face droops, upset and emotional. Marlo sighs, reaches his hand out to the poster of Merit, looking nostalgic and sad.
A black hole zooms into the magician and his long lost companion.
