Sam Reeve got the two Find Chaffy books for Christmas, and when we both woke up super-early on Boxing Day, we decided to make our own Chaffy poster.



Sam loves farms and farming equipment, so he invented the Yows, and hid ten of the little Chaffy characters in the picture.




Here are some cool facts about the Yows:



We tweeted our picture, and very excitingly, Chaffy's creatork, Jamie Smart, was already awake and replied within minutes! Sam was well chuffed.



Chaffy also made it into a breakfast drawing.



The Reeve dog, Frodo, has a pom-pom head that looks a little bit like Chaffy. Here's an excellent range of jam with a writer and a poodle sticking out of them.



Philip's sister and brother-in-law gave me a new sketchbook and pencils, so I christened them with a drawing of the poodle driving a tractor. (There were lots of tractors lying around to use as models.)



Here are some of the results from a game of Exquisite Corpse (or Consequences) that we played on Christmas Eve, after dinner. If you don't know how to play, here are the rules.



And I was very full when I drew this after Christmas dinner, but you can get the general gist of things. A very cosy holiday.

If you like drawing games, do know Monstermaler (or Split Personality) by Friedemann Friese?

It's a game where you pick someone to draw.
You write the name on the back of the paper. (Everyone does this simultaneously)
You fold the paper in half and draw the left side of person you choose.
Then the player to your left looks at the name on the back, without looking at the side you drew on.
She then draws the right side of the person you choose.

Then everyone apart from the two of you gets to guess, once, whom you drew.
If someone guesses right they get 2 points, if no one guesses both drawers get -1 point.

An example by two of your colleagues:


Let's see if you can guess who this is. :-)

Hey, that's cool, I never heard of that game. Thanks! Hmm, the left side looks like Boris Godunov and the right side looks like Albus Dumbledore. I'll guess Dumbledore, since the left side definitely isn't him. :)

It was an unfair question. Sorry.
It's actually two persons.

I asked Laura (left side) to draw the Pope, and then asked John to do the other part.
I forgot to tell him who to draw and he misidentified the pope, and assumed it was Merlin...

Hmmm...
I must remember to bring it along to the gamesclub on Friday. Might be fun to do.

Ha ha, fabulous! I was going to say, the guy on the left looks distinctly religious, but not in a wizard way. Cool!
