I'm Ricky.

0:00:030:00:04

I live in Bristol.

0:00:040:00:06

I work as an animator, which is lucky because I love art.

0:00:060:00:09

Goal!

0:00:090:00:10

I live for art. I even dream of art.

0:00:100:00:13

I draw, I paint, I make things.

0:00:130:00:17

Nailed it!

0:00:170:00:18

I hang out with my mates.

0:00:200:00:22

Gavin, Michelle, Rich and Sarah.

0:00:220:00:25

It's me!

0:00:250:00:26

Most importantly, I make ninja moves.

0:00:260:00:29

Some people call me the...

0:00:290:00:32

Today I'll show you how to make a bag with bite.

0:00:340:00:38

We'll be monkeying around with this chalk pastel primate.

0:00:380:00:42

And I'd be "lion" if I didn't say we make art that stinks.

0:00:420:00:45

Because today it's...

0:00:480:00:49

Ah! It's a new day.

0:00:560:00:58

I better get my ninja on.

0:00:580:01:00

And my clothes.

0:01:000:01:02

What's that noise? Sounds like someone's a little hoarse.

0:01:160:01:20

All right, Gav, what are you doing?

0:01:230:01:24

I'm training for the Bristol marathon and a half.

0:01:240:01:26

Why are you running a marathon dressed as the front end of a horse?

0:01:260:01:30

Well, my running mate pulled out the back.

0:01:300:01:32

You mean to say he had his face down there?

0:01:320:01:35

I'm not surprised.

0:01:350:01:38

Oh, that's a good point.

0:01:380:01:40

I should probably find something better to dress as, shouldn't I?

0:01:400:01:43

See ya!

0:01:430:01:44

Gav would be better off running in an old T-shirt, like this!

0:01:490:01:53

But I'm going to use this to make something really cool.

0:01:530:01:57

The Art Ninja piranha bag!

0:01:570:01:59

I need to start by turning this inside out.

0:02:010:02:03

Ninja skills!

0:02:050:02:07

Now, I'm going to pen a shape into it

0:02:080:02:10

that's going to make a fish's body.

0:02:100:02:13

All the way along up here. Have a little flat top.

0:02:130:02:16

Then we have the same angle going back down the other side.

0:02:160:02:19

Now I'm going to cut off the top part of the T-shirt,

0:02:200:02:23

two centimetres above my line of pins.

0:02:230:02:26

There we go.

0:02:260:02:27

Right, now I need to cut out some fins.

0:02:280:02:30

And for that, I'm using a dishcloth.

0:02:300:02:33

First, two side fins.

0:02:370:02:39

Then a tail fin.

0:02:410:02:42

And finally, a back fin.

0:02:430:02:45

The T-shirt's inside out,

0:02:460:02:47

so I'm going to pin these fins on the inside,

0:02:470:02:50

so when I turn it round the right way, they'll be on the outside.

0:02:500:02:53

Just start by unpinning here and then sneaking this through the side.

0:02:530:02:56

Pop that one in like that.

0:02:590:03:01

There we are.

0:03:030:03:05

Once it's nice and flat I'm just going to pin it back into place.

0:03:050:03:09

OK. Now I need to do the same thing with these side fins.

0:03:090:03:12

Pin it in place.

0:03:160:03:17

And on the other side.

0:03:170:03:19

Great. Now I can start sewing it.

0:03:220:03:23

So I've got myself a little bit of thread and a needle here

0:03:230:03:26

and I've tied a knot in the end so that when I pull it through,

0:03:260:03:29

it holds it in place.

0:03:290:03:30

I'm going to sew all the way along my line of pins,

0:03:300:03:33

using a running stitch.

0:03:330:03:35

Always be careful, because I'm using a needle.

0:03:370:03:39

Right.

0:03:390:03:40

Now I can turn it round the right way.

0:03:400:03:42

There we are.

0:03:450:03:47

And as you can see, our stitching is all hidden and really tidy.

0:03:470:03:50

Now I'm going to stick on the back fin with a little bit of fabric glue.

0:03:500:03:53

This is also called a dorsal fin, a true fact.

0:03:550:03:58

And I've layered up some different coloured pieces of felt

0:03:580:04:02

to make some eyes,

0:04:020:04:03

and I'm going to glue them on with fabric glue.

0:04:030:04:06

There we are.

0:04:090:04:12

I've also cut out some triangles and I'm going to put them on the inside

0:04:120:04:15

of the T-shirt to become the piranha's teeth.

0:04:150:04:17

Five at the top and four at the bottom.

0:04:190:04:21

Now it is a bag, it means it needs straps.

0:04:210:04:24

So I need to cut a couple of holes for them.

0:04:240:04:27

Just going to pinch the two layers of T-shirt together,

0:04:270:04:29

just cut through them both. There we go.

0:04:290:04:33

And the same on this side, too.

0:04:330:04:35

There we are. Now also this bag's going to have a drawstring,

0:04:350:04:39

so I'm going to make that by using

0:04:390:04:40

the hem at the bottom of the T-shirt.

0:04:400:04:42

I'm going to cut a hole into the side of the hem here,

0:04:420:04:44

just so we can get the drawstring in.

0:04:440:04:47

Do the other side.

0:04:470:04:50

There we go.

0:04:500:04:52

Now I've got some ribbon to become the straps

0:04:550:04:56

and we need to thread this through the hem of the T-shirt

0:04:560:04:59

to make the drawstring.

0:04:590:05:01

Now that's quite tricky, so I'm going to tape it to a pencil

0:05:010:05:03

to make it a little bit easier.

0:05:030:05:05

There we go.

0:05:080:05:09

-There

-we are.

0:05:170:05:19

One side done. Now I need to do the other side.

0:05:200:05:23

A tip here to make this easier

0:05:230:05:25

is to hold on to the back of the pencil and gather the material

0:05:250:05:28

over the end with the point.

0:05:280:05:30

There you go, two drawstrings.

0:05:320:05:33

Now I need to just tie them to make the straps.

0:05:330:05:35

So I'm going to tape one end again to the pencil and poke it through.

0:05:350:05:39

There we go. Pull it off.

0:05:410:05:44

And then I'm just going to tie that to the other end.

0:05:440:05:47

Just do the same on the other side.

0:05:490:05:51

And tie that last one together.

0:05:530:05:54

There we go.

0:05:540:05:56

Now to try it on.

0:05:560:05:58

Check it out!

0:06:000:06:01

You don't have to make your bag in the shape of a fish,

0:06:060:06:08

there's plenty of other catchy designs, like this.

0:06:080:06:11

Bat pack.

0:06:120:06:13

Or how about this "turtle-ly" awesome turtle bag!

0:06:150:06:18

KNOCKING

0:06:210:06:22

Oh, better run and get that.

0:06:220:06:24

There you are, Gavin.

0:06:270:06:28

That is so much more appropriate for running.

0:06:280:06:31

No! I'm wearing this underneath.

0:06:310:06:33

My outfit's in here.

0:06:330:06:35

Now turn around and I'll change.

0:06:350:06:36

So how long do you think it will take you to finish the marathon?

0:06:380:06:41

About an hour and a half.

0:06:410:06:42

An hour and a half?!

0:06:420:06:43

You can't finish in an hour and a half, you big cheater.

0:06:430:06:46

That's exactly what I am, Ricky!

0:06:460:06:48

You said something more appropriate for running.

0:06:480:06:50

These guys can run 120km an hour!

0:06:500:06:53

Go on, get out of here.

0:06:550:06:56

This costume isn't working, is it?

0:06:560:06:58

I better get something better.

0:06:580:06:59

I don't know about a cheetah, but Gav can be a cheeky monkey.

0:07:040:07:07

Speaking of which, I'm going to do a picture of a baboon.

0:07:070:07:10

Baboon, it's a good word that, isn't it? Anyway.

0:07:110:07:14

I'll start by drawing quite a simple line drawing.

0:07:150:07:18

First, I'm drawing the baboon's nose.

0:07:180:07:20

I'm going to make this nice and dark so I can trace it later.

0:07:210:07:23

Glad I haven't got a baboon's nose.

0:07:250:07:27

Or have I?

0:07:270:07:29

A little beard.

0:07:290:07:30

Wish I had a beard like a baboon.

0:07:320:07:34

And a great big mane.

0:07:340:07:35

And finally, two eyes looking pretty baboony.

0:07:400:07:43

Now using another piece of paper I'm going to trace the mane.

0:07:430:07:47

This is going to be my template.

0:07:470:07:48

All will become clear later.

0:07:490:07:51

Just joining it up. Sweet.

0:07:510:07:54

Now I'm going to cut that out.

0:07:540:07:55

I'm not so worried about cutting into the inside shape here,

0:07:580:08:00

it's all about maintaining the shape on the outside,

0:08:000:08:02

because this is a stencil.

0:08:020:08:04

Now I need stencils of all the other parts of the baboon's face

0:08:050:08:09

so I'm going to use my ninja skills!

0:08:090:08:11

There we go.

0:08:120:08:13

Lovely. Won't be needing this.

0:08:130:08:16

I do need a fresh piece of paper and some chalk pastels.

0:08:160:08:21

So I'm going to start with the baboon's nose.

0:08:210:08:23

Pop it in the middle of the page.

0:08:230:08:25

Get some chalk pastels.

0:08:250:08:26

This chalk is going to help me recreate the colour grading

0:08:260:08:30

favoured by American artist, Georgia O'Keeffe.

0:08:300:08:32

Hey, Ricky, it's me.

0:08:330:08:36

-Hey, Georgia.

-I like to paint desert landscapes,

0:08:360:08:40

animal skulls and flowers.

0:08:400:08:42

Here is some of my work now.

0:08:420:08:44

Wow, I'd love to own some of your work, Georgia.

0:08:460:08:49

Well, unlikely, Ricky.

0:08:490:08:51

My painting, Jimson Weed/White Flower No 1,

0:08:510:08:55

sold for 44.4 million

0:08:550:08:57

and is the most expensive painting ever by a female artist.

0:08:570:09:02

I'm not sure this baboon will make me a monkey, ie £500.

0:09:020:09:07

Anyway, I best get on with it.

0:09:070:09:09

-Bye, Ricky!

-Bye!

0:09:100:09:12

I'm drawing with a chalk hostel around the outside of my stencil

0:09:160:09:20

and then rubbing the pastel in to get this lovely grading.

0:09:200:09:24

If you're worried about your stencil moving,

0:09:240:09:25

you can tape it down with a bit of masking tape

0:09:250:09:28

or use a little bit of sticky tack.

0:09:280:09:30

An important thing here is to blow off the excess pastel powder,

0:09:300:09:33

not to rub it, because you'll smudge your picture.

0:09:330:09:36

Now I'm going to move onto this bit, its kind of round blueish cheeks.

0:09:360:09:39

I'm being mindful not to overlap the colours,

0:09:410:09:44

so I'm just filling in the white spaces.

0:09:440:09:46

Give my hands a wipe.

0:09:500:09:51

It's important to have clean fingers when you change colours.

0:09:510:09:55

I'm going to do the main part of his face

0:09:560:09:58

using my lightest grey.

0:09:580:10:00

Now for the beard.

0:10:080:10:10

See, you don't always just fade inwards like this.

0:10:120:10:15

Another technique is to rub along the edge

0:10:150:10:17

and that gives you a more defined colour.

0:10:170:10:20

Moving onto my last stencil now and that's the mane.

0:10:260:10:29

The mane's pretty big.

0:10:320:10:34

So I want this colour to fade in quite a long way.

0:10:340:10:36

Now a little finishing touch of some eyes.

0:10:430:10:46

OK, let's see how it looks.

0:10:500:10:51

Oh, yeah!

0:10:510:10:54

A nice colour gradient for a Grade A picture of a baboon.

0:10:540:10:58

And I think it's so good, it deserves a frame.

0:10:580:11:00

When your picture's finished, you can fix the chalk pastel

0:11:020:11:05

with hairspray and it stops it from smudging.

0:11:050:11:08

Here's a quick art tip of how to draw a roaring lion.

0:11:110:11:14

So I'm going to start with his head.

0:11:140:11:16

That's going to be a big egg shape, wider at the bottom than at the top.

0:11:160:11:21

And in it I'm going to draw a big wide mouth.

0:11:210:11:24

Because he is roaring. A couple of teeth.

0:11:240:11:27

His tongue.

0:11:290:11:31

Lions have like little triangle noses.

0:11:310:11:33

Little eyes.

0:11:330:11:35

And then I'm going to draw a nice big mane.

0:11:350:11:37

So a wavy line like that, a couple of bits at the top.

0:11:370:11:41

Maybe some ears, just between the mane and the face.

0:11:410:11:45

The same distance between the two.

0:11:450:11:47

Now I'm drawing his front legs.

0:11:470:11:49

It's like two long stalks at the bottom.

0:11:490:11:51

Little balls for the feet.

0:11:510:11:52

Little lines for the separate toes.

0:11:520:11:55

Body in between. There's his little belly.

0:11:550:11:58

Out for his legs. Little wavy tail with a ruffly bit at the end.

0:11:580:12:04

And for the roar, I want like a big wave of sound coming out.

0:12:040:12:06

Draw these quick lines shooting out from him.

0:12:060:12:09

A couple of speed lines round the side just to give it the energy.

0:12:120:12:15

There we go.

0:12:180:12:19

Another quick art tip.

0:12:190:12:22

Did that picture just move?

0:12:350:12:37

Yeah. That's because it's animated.

0:12:370:12:40

I'm telling you, it's a magic box.

0:12:400:12:43

What are Rich and Ella doing?

0:12:430:12:44

-It's not a magic box.

-It is!

0:12:440:12:46

Totally magic, trust me.

0:12:460:12:48

Get in!

0:12:480:12:50

Whoa! Is this some kind of magic box portal?

0:12:520:12:55

No. It's thinking inside the box and outside the box.

0:12:560:13:01

Now to make this cool teleporting box animation,

0:13:010:13:03

you'll need a couple of cardboard boxes, a large open space,

0:13:030:13:07

some friends and a tablet with animation app installed.

0:13:070:13:10

And you can put it together in just three ninja moves.

0:13:100:13:13

Ninja move number one.

0:13:130:13:15

You need to delegate. You need one person to teleport,

0:13:150:13:18

one person to be the box master

0:13:180:13:19

and somebody to direct.

0:13:190:13:21

Ninja move number two.

0:13:210:13:22

Right, I'm going to set up our tablet device

0:13:220:13:24

and we're going to start shooting and just see where it takes us.

0:13:240:13:27

The fun here is working out how we're going to make Ella disappear

0:13:270:13:30

and reappear inside the boxes.

0:13:300:13:31

And top tip, if you angle the boxes at the right level,

0:13:310:13:35

you can hide behind them so it looks like

0:13:350:13:37

you're fully getting inside each time.

0:13:370:13:39

Ninja move number three.

0:13:390:13:40

We're going to be making an animation loop

0:13:400:13:42

which means will go to re-use the same frames.

0:13:420:13:45

It's going to look like Ella here is stuck flying between two boxes.

0:13:450:13:48

Now, because Rich is stood there,

0:13:480:13:50

he needs to stay as still as possible

0:13:500:13:52

while Ella moves across the floor.

0:13:520:13:54

And each time you move something, capture a frame.

0:13:550:13:57

OK, we've shot all of our frames.

0:14:020:14:04

We've added some cool sound effects.

0:14:040:14:05

I think it's time to take a look at our mini masterpiece.

0:14:050:14:08

Oh, sweet!

0:14:340:14:36

It's a pretty simple animation but it came out brilliantly.

0:14:360:14:38

What do you think, guys? Guys?

0:14:380:14:40

Guys?!

0:14:400:14:42

In the box.

0:14:430:14:44

Ah, better clean up these boxes, then.

0:14:490:14:51

Don't close the box! I'm inside the box. Richard, don't. Ahh!

0:14:530:14:55

I'm bursting for the loo.

0:15:050:15:07

PHONE RINGS

0:15:070:15:09

MACHINE BLEEPS

0:15:090:15:10

Hi, Ricky, it's your mum.

0:15:100:15:12

Hope I haven't stopped important business.

0:15:120:15:14

Oh, if only she knew.

0:15:140:15:15

Here's what's coming up on your number one show.

0:15:150:15:18

Stop talking about number ones.

0:15:180:15:20

Treesy does it with the masking tape.

0:15:210:15:24

Om!

0:15:240:15:25

This guy is anything but stony faced.

0:15:250:15:27

And where there's muck, there's art at the safari park.

0:15:280:15:31

-Bye, Ricky!

-Bye, Mum!

0:15:330:15:35

Ah, finally I can relax.

0:15:400:15:41

Ricky, Ricky, Ricky!

0:15:410:15:44

Spoke too soon.

0:15:440:15:45

Can you make art with twigs?

0:15:450:15:47

I could branch into it but not today.

0:15:470:15:49

SHE SIGHS

0:15:490:15:51

-Hey, Ricky.

-Hi.

0:15:510:15:53

Hey, it's Naomi and Ed.

0:15:530:15:55

How's it going, guys?

0:15:550:15:56

Great, thank you. We were just wondering,

0:15:560:15:57

do you think you can make anything out of these biscuits?

0:15:570:16:00

Er, no.

0:16:000:16:01

But I wouldn't mind one.

0:16:010:16:02

Thanks!

0:16:030:16:05

Ooh! That takes the biscuit.

0:16:050:16:08

Oops!

0:16:080:16:09

Hey, what have these guys got?

0:16:090:16:11

Ricky, can you make art with masking tape?

0:16:110:16:14

OK, I'm sticking with you.

0:16:140:16:16

Yeah!

0:16:160:16:17

So what are your names?

0:16:170:16:19

-Callum.

-And Kian.

0:16:190:16:21

Nice to meet you guys. And where are you from?

0:16:210:16:23

-Leicester.

-Leicester.

0:16:230:16:24

Masking tape is a great suggestion, I'll just go and grab some things.

0:16:240:16:28

I've got some watercolour paper.

0:16:280:16:31

Some water colour paints and I couldn't find any masking tape.

0:16:310:16:34

-Can I borrow yours?

-Yes.

0:16:340:16:36

OK.

0:16:360:16:38

Sweet. I'm going to use masking tape to make a wild picture.

0:16:380:16:41

So I'm going to start by taping it down to the table.

0:16:410:16:45

And that means that it won't move and when I'm getting the paper wet,

0:16:450:16:49

it won't all crease up. I'm going to take lines across the paper.

0:16:490:16:52

So what kind of art do you guys like to do?

0:16:520:16:56

-Drawing.

-What do you draw?

0:16:560:16:58

Superheroes.

0:16:580:17:00

Oh, cool. What kind of powers do they have?

0:17:000:17:02

-Lasers.

-Awesome.

0:17:020:17:04

I'm going to get a bit of masking tape and I'm going to cut down it

0:17:040:17:07

to create a thinner piece so I have different sizes on my picture.

0:17:070:17:10

Have you guys ever made art with masking tape?

0:17:100:17:12

-Yeah.

-What did you do?

0:17:120:17:14

-A mummy.

-A mummy?

0:17:140:17:16

I wrapped up my actual mummy.

0:17:160:17:19

Oh, your actual mum!

0:17:190:17:20

Poor mum. I'm going to add my slightly thinner one further back

0:17:200:17:24

and these masked-off lines are going to become trees later on.

0:17:240:17:28

So a thinner one further back would look like it's away in the distance,

0:17:280:17:32

using a little bit of perspective.

0:17:320:17:34

I've also got some slightly thinner strips of masking tape

0:17:340:17:36

and I'm going to start dotting these around across the others.

0:17:360:17:39

I'm really building up all the masking tape over my paper.

0:17:400:17:43

All right, guys, now I can start painting.

0:17:430:17:45

I'm going to start just by wetting my paper

0:17:450:17:47

so that it's ready for the paint.

0:17:470:17:49

I'm just going to wet it all up like this...

0:17:490:17:51

I'm going to start with some purple.

0:17:510:17:53

Guys, I'm doing a little technique here with the paint.

0:17:530:17:56

I'm mixing it all up to get a dappled light effect

0:17:560:17:58

so I don't have to be neat at all.

0:17:580:18:00

I can make a right mess.

0:18:000:18:02

THEY LAUGH

0:18:020:18:03

Now I'm going to move on to the top colour, and for that I'm going to do

0:18:030:18:06

a nice rich yellow, and that's because yellow

0:18:060:18:08

is the complementary colour of purple.

0:18:080:18:10

Literally, just going for it with the yellow now.

0:18:120:18:14

Do you like drawing at home?

0:18:140:18:16

If I'm watching TV, yeah,

0:18:160:18:17

I'll be sketching and drawing in my pad doing doodles.

0:18:170:18:20

I'm just dotting on a slightly darker colour now

0:18:200:18:24

and I want to dapple it a little bit more,

0:18:240:18:27

so I'm going to add a little bit of water and just drip it on.

0:18:270:18:29

My picture doesn't look amazing yet, but it will soon. Honest!

0:18:290:18:34

Now I need that to dry and I'm going to use my ninja skills.

0:18:340:18:37

There we go, lovely and dry.

0:18:390:18:40

Now I'm going to start peeling off the masking tape.

0:18:400:18:43

What's great here is all the places where the masking tape was

0:18:430:18:47

has been kept perfectly white

0:18:470:18:48

and I've got these really nice crisp lines.

0:18:480:18:51

-It looks really good!

-Ah, thanks.

0:18:510:18:54

Now I get to do the long ones.

0:18:540:18:56

Oh, look at that.

0:18:560:18:58

I have to be careful when I'm peeling off the masking tape,

0:18:590:19:01

just in case it takes off a bit of the paper as well

0:19:010:19:04

and ruins the picture, so I'm just taking my time.

0:19:040:19:06

Now I'm going to add some shadows.

0:19:060:19:08

So I'm going to add a little bit of grey all along one side

0:19:080:19:11

of all my white lines,

0:19:110:19:12

on the right-hand side of the vertical pillars

0:19:120:19:14

and on the underside of the diagonal ones

0:19:140:19:17

because the light is all coming from one direction, not the band.

0:19:170:19:20

Just doing some very quick horizontal and vertical marks,

0:19:200:19:23

with a couple of quick little diagonal ones.

0:19:230:19:25

I'm using a flat fine brush but you can just use a thin brush.

0:19:250:19:29

This is looking really good, guys. I hope you like it.

0:19:300:19:33

Are you ready to see it?

0:19:340:19:36

-BOTH:

-Yes!

0:19:360:19:38

Get a load of this!

0:19:380:19:40

You see what it is? They're trees with a lovely sort of purpley floor

0:19:420:19:46

and a beautiful dappled bright yellow sky.

0:19:460:19:49

Well, I think it's so good, it deserves a frame.

0:19:490:19:52

So, guys, what would you rate it?

0:19:520:19:54

-BOTH:

-We give it a ten!

0:19:540:19:57

Ah, great. Thanks for your suggestion, guys. Bye-bye.

0:19:570:20:00

Bye, Ricky!

0:20:000:20:02

STAMPEDE APPROACHING

0:20:090:20:11

What is that noise?

0:20:110:20:12

Sounds like a stampede.

0:20:120:20:15

-Gav, is that you?

-This costume is going to get buckets of sponsorship!

0:20:160:20:22

-You look ridic.

-Lucky I've got thick skin then.

0:20:220:20:25

CRASHING

0:20:270:20:29

Om!

0:20:310:20:33

Om!

0:20:350:20:36

-And you think I look silly!

-Shh, it's the Grand Master.

0:20:360:20:40

Om!

0:20:400:20:42

Very Zen(!)

0:20:430:20:45

Greetings, dudes!

0:20:450:20:48

Salutations, Grand Master.

0:20:480:20:50

What can you teach us, O wise one?

0:20:500:20:53

Lesson number 333 1/3 to enlightenment.

0:20:530:20:58

Decorative attachments for your cupboard of coldness!

0:20:580:21:04

Fridge magnets.

0:21:060:21:07

Yeah! Use a small stone, dude.

0:21:070:21:10

Paint it your favourite colour.

0:21:120:21:14

Oh, no! Oh!

0:21:180:21:21

Blue is not my colour.

0:21:210:21:23

Carry on painting, dudes!

0:21:270:21:29

Now, let it dry.

0:21:300:21:33

Stick on some googly eyes with strong glue.

0:21:330:21:37

Draw a funny mouth.

0:21:400:21:43

Stick a magnet on the back.

0:21:470:21:51

Ah, so cute.

0:21:560:21:59

Put it on your cupboard of coldness.

0:21:590:22:02

So cool!

0:22:020:22:03

Lesson number 333 1/3, complete.

0:22:030:22:08

Cool. You rock, Grand Master.

0:22:080:22:11

I am enlightened.

0:22:110:22:13

You are most welcome.

0:22:130:22:16

Om!

0:22:180:22:19

Anyway, how long have you got until the Bristol marathon starts?

0:22:190:22:23

Hmm, a little while, why?

0:22:230:22:25

Because I've got an idea for some art involving animals.

0:22:250:22:28

Sounds wild, let's do it.

0:22:280:22:30

Follow me.

0:22:300:22:31

Ninja skills!

0:22:450:22:47

Come on, Gav, I thought you said you were fit enough to run a marathon.

0:22:470:22:50

I haven't run so far in my life!

0:22:500:22:53

Ah, you're saying you've never run so far,

0:22:530:22:55

but you should be saying "so fari" because this is a safari park.

0:22:550:22:59

Who's this?

0:23:000:23:01

All right.

0:23:010:23:03

It sounds like Sarah. Sarah, is that you? Can you take your mask off?

0:23:030:23:06

Very funny(!) What are we doing here, anyway?

0:23:070:23:10

Well, all your animal antics have given me an idea for some art.

0:23:100:23:13

But first, we better get our ninja on.

0:23:130:23:15

Are you aping my style?

0:23:220:23:24

Art Ninja!

0:23:240:23:26

Strike a pose.

0:23:260:23:28

-Hiya.

-Hello.

0:23:380:23:40

OK, guys, this is Mark. He's a safari ranger

0:23:400:23:43

and he's going to be showing us where we can get our art materials from today.

0:23:430:23:46

Yeah, we're going to get your materials from the bottom of the park.

0:23:460:23:49

-Oh, poo.

-Exactly.

0:23:500:23:52

And Mark here is an poo expert so he's going to show us

0:23:520:23:55

-where we can find it.

-Shall we go?

0:23:550:23:57

Yeah.

0:23:570:23:59

I have a poo fact. Did you know that male hippos fling their poo around

0:24:060:24:11

-by swishing their tails to impress females?

-Oh, charming.

0:24:110:24:15

Well, we don't have hippos. We have rhinos.

0:24:150:24:17

They only poo in one spot and they stamp on theirs

0:24:170:24:20

to spread their scent around.

0:24:200:24:21

You asked for poo, and here it is.

0:24:230:24:25

So if you want to get stuck in?

0:24:250:24:26

Not the choice of words I would use, but, yeah, why not?

0:24:260:24:29

-Oh, yeah!

-Oh, that's hard.

0:24:340:24:37

Look at that poopy!

0:24:370:24:41

Right, guys, that's enough mucking about - and enough mucking out -

0:24:410:24:44

let's go get on with the art!

0:24:440:24:45

Come on, Gav, you can take that.

0:24:450:24:48

Yeah, this is heavy.

0:24:480:24:50

We've also borrowed some dung from these guys, the giraffes.

0:24:540:24:57

Well, I say borrowed, but I don't think they want it back.

0:24:570:25:00

Cheers, fellas!

0:25:000:25:01

PARP!

0:25:010:25:02

Oh, rude!

0:25:020:25:04

OK, guys, we've got our lovely tarpaulin canvas.

0:25:060:25:09

We've got our great art materials, the dung, and some sawdust bedding,

0:25:090:25:13

all from the safari park.

0:25:130:25:14

Ah! We're grown-ups and we're wearing gloves

0:25:140:25:18

and protective clothing so we can make art with some poo,

0:25:180:25:21

but I don't suggest that you do do this.

0:25:210:25:23

Ha-ha! He said doo-doo!

0:25:230:25:26

Good one, Gavin!

0:25:260:25:27

Let's get on with the picture.

0:25:270:25:29

This is the smelliest bit of art you've ever got us making, Rick.

0:25:320:25:36

It's got a pretty hefty whiff.

0:25:360:25:38

Oh, good work, Sarah, it's looking great.

0:25:380:25:40

Gav, if you can just sprinkle that over the brown bits,

0:25:400:25:43

gives it texture.

0:25:430:25:44

I am sprinkling poo.

0:25:460:25:48

-Hey, Sarah.

-Hi.

0:25:540:25:56

What do you get if you sit under a cow?

0:25:560:25:58

A bad joke?

0:25:580:25:59

A pat on the head!

0:25:590:26:00

Mark told me that one's called Ian.

0:26:070:26:09

All right, Ian?

0:26:090:26:10

-There's your giant bucket of poo, madam.

-Thanks!

0:26:170:26:20

I'm just about to run out of poo.

0:26:250:26:27

Don't worry, Sarah. We're nearly finished.

0:26:270:26:30

Wow!

0:26:330:26:34

Who knew you could make art from poo!

0:26:340:26:37

It's the Serengeti plains.

0:26:370:26:39

Thanks for all your help, guys.

0:26:500:26:51

And I've still got time to make the Bristol marathon and a half!

0:26:510:26:54

And I know just the animal costume I'm going to wear.

0:26:540:26:57

Good news, I got a text from Gavin.

0:27:100:27:12

He did his marathon in the end dressed as a giraffe.

0:27:120:27:14

And he persuaded Sarah to go as the giraffe's bottom.

0:27:140:27:18

Don't worry, I sponsored them both.

0:27:180:27:21

Today has taught me a valuable Art Ninja lesson.

0:27:210:27:24

26 miles in a suit is some run

0:27:240:27:27

but art using Rhino poo is my kind of fun.

0:27:270:27:30

If I never see another animal again, it'll be too soon.

0:27:300:27:34

Hi, mate!

0:27:380:27:40

HE SCREAMS

0:27:400:27:43

Gavin can't find the right animal costume to run the local marathon. Ricky helps him decide by making a piranha fish bag and a baboon chalk picture inspired by artist Georgia O'Keeffe, but it's only when they go to the safari park to make art that inspiration comes from an unlikely source!
