Stick Man DVD release

Since the start of February the Stick Man DVD is for sale. HMV and ASDA have them stocked on some nice tailor made shelves, and Sainsbury's sells a special edition version....very nice to see during my weekly shop. For those who loved the film over Christmas, it's definitely worth to get; there is an insightful 'making off' documentary and a gallery of concept art (colour treatments) by art director Daniel Clark. For the little ones there's a live performance by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler and either a poster or sticker sheet with the characters. My involvement was to oversee the design of the DVD cover. We tried to mimic the book cover, with its winter theme and a 'happy-go-lucky' Stick Man having a morning jog. The back and front cover connect as one big panorama, which includes the whole Stick family, and various hidden woodland creatures. After one week on sale, Stick Man has jumped to number 4 in the UK DVD chart, which is the highest scoring TV programme. It's lovely to know that there is still a lot of love for our wooden friend out there. DVD can be bought online via the Gruffalo Shop or Amazon.
