This clip looks Great!

I'm your works new fan and I use Ickle's and Lardee's adventures to amuse me while I study at my computer. I'm also very keen photographer and I think you really know how to use camera creatively :)

puttingonairs said...

Amazing!

Where can I get a copy of this song? None of Brad Breeck's many websites seem to indicate where I can track this down!

IctoRude said...

This is so amazing to watch,
I think it only makes Ickle and Lardee's adventures all the more magical to see all the work that goes into making them!

(Also, this is helpful since I'm planning on entering the milk toof contest ;p)

Kerstin said...

Wow, this is so great! Getting a look behind the scenes is always interesting and fascinating. I wish there was more. But I know it must be lots of exta work and maybe for some it spoils the magic of My Milk Toof a bit but not for me. I love it! :D

I have juste one word : 대박 !
It's already been 2 months since I've started stalking this blog, and I feel like I've found a very special place.
Very few blogs are able to create such a feel-good atmosphere like yours.
I know you can't answer all of the comments, but I really wanted to post here (first time ^^), to let you know how I'm impressed at your hard work.

You're a truly amazing woman, and you really deserve being more famous. While watching the video, I was astonished by all the details and the dedication you put, to give us such cute stories.

Thank you, for opening us this world, and letting us laugh with ickle and lardee, at each of their lovely adventures.
And congrats to Chronicle Books to being able to get you before others ;D

I wish you the BEST of BEST for the future..

Random question, Just how many ickle's and Lardee's are there? I know there's got to be at least three of each for all these expressions, but is there more?
Thanks!
<3 Jenna

Hope said...

Wow are you talented!! I always thought you found tiny minitures to work with in your pictures, I had no idea how much of these things you MADE! Great job!!

Sammy Lim said...

For some reason, i didn't like watching this. It took away from the fantasy that Ickle and Lardee are real :o(

Caca said...

you have taken out the clip, I can't view it.

Anonymous said...

Wow, I love the way you make the teeny tiny props look so naturally placed! It's obvious you put a lot of hard work into this, and everyone loves your works! (If they don't, they must be pretty strange) Stay awesome,
from a big fan <3

Snowball said...

You are really talented and wow! All the hardwork behind scenes for 1 pic! Amazing. Thanks for bringing me smiles everytime I visit your blog! :)

François Xavier Arnoux said...

Great Work!

Brian Crocker said...

I love you continually fussing about with the thread. It's in the waaay background and noone would notice if it was one way or the other but YOU WOULD, and you just have to get it absolutely perfect. I described this comic to my friend as "heart-breakingly adorable".

Anonymous said...
