While working on an assignment this afternoon - a 10 foot long alphabet jigsaw puzzle - the old poem "There Was A Crooked Man" popped into my head. I thought about how much fun that would be to illustrate, and two seconds later I was browsing Google Images looking at crooked houses for inspiration. That led to a long string of other shiny objects which caught my eye and imagination. Half an hour later I was looking at Indonesian Shadow Puppets (naturally), which led me to this delightful animated short. I dare you to shake the song that accompanies it out of your head!
