Bob animating in his studio at 84 Wardour Street sometime in the mid 1970s

Probably mid 1970s - Bob definitely not having a crafty nose pick, but thoughtfully twiddling his 'tache while Kent Houston does something or other on the wall.

Bob offers himself as a model for the packshot of an animated commercial for France - the product was for a septic tank cleanser ("pour fosse septique et fosse toutes eaux" as they say in French).
Date, I am guessing late 80s or early 90s.


Bob and ace animator Kevin Baldwin. Bob was inspecting possible new premises (this was about 2001) and both seem unimpressed with the ceiling

A postcard from Bob. The message on the back of the card is below... those having trouble decoding the message: Bob considered Spitting Image, a satirical TV show featuring latex puppets, to be "cheating" because it was not produced frame by frame like conventional animation.

Self portrait. Animo is a digital ink and paint system that not only replaces the old painstaking methods of colouring artwork but even the animation rostrum camera as well. Bob recognised the advantage, but it didn't mean he had to like it. He hated not being able to see what was going on until the finished work emerged, so he felt he was working blind.

PS    Not for the easily offended; a 6 minute film from Elliot Goldner (relation) that involves an orange car
and a lot of very rude language (and is extremely funny):

Oh, if you insist, just one more then: "Neighbourhood Watch"......
