THERE'S A FUNNY THING UNDER MY NOSE!

Updated: Aug 16


And it’s been there for a bloody long time (and NO its not my ‘tache either!)


Surprisingly, its my lovely daughter, Saskia Laroque Rothstein-Longaretti.


She’s been right there under my hooter for the last 25 years.


Just being there, and being funny, and acting in my commercials, and making sets for me, and painting my friends blue, and copywriting, playing with plasticine, and doing voiceovers, and puppeteering, and animating, and generally ff-ing about and having a laugh.


She can pull even more faces now that she's 'matured'


When Sass starred in the Blink idents, she was only sweet sixteen


She's not too shy, on either side of the camera


...and she's pretty handy with the make-up brush too


Potato lettering, TICK! Rubbish model making, TICK! Silver-foil trophy, TICK!


...even her costumes are rubbish!


Sass has been in my adverts since she was 8 years old! (BTW, she's slightly older in this one)



So I finally came to the conclusion that I should ask her to team up with me.

Which means… we’re now a directing duo!!! AND a proper creative team!!!


Sass will be doing the copywriting, and I’ll be doing the art-directing.


(And, on the side, we’re embarking on an artistic printing project as well as writing and designing a short film. Why not?)


Things probably won’t feel a lot different, apart from Sass stepping into the spotlight… I think it’s probably her turn now.


Oh, I forgot to tell you, we’re called 'Dinosaur Wet Ears' - you buy one of us and you get the other one for free (we did consider calling ourselves the B.O.G.O.F.’s - we didn’t like it though).


There were so many great name suggestions that there was only one fair way to select a winner!
