To construct an animated 3D milk float was a lot of hard work. With so much curved work and awkwardly placed windows it took a lot of sorting out. This was a complete new model and we made milk crates and milk bottle for it which I have isolated and used as separate animations. You do not see this sort of milk float on the roads these day but just drawing it brought back many happy memories for me. One of the happiest jobs I ever had. The cheeky animated Unigate Teddy bear milkman was a redraw of one of the naughty teddy models, adding a milkman's hat and a bottle of Channel Island milk (Gold top). He is probably asking if you would like to see his gold top.
In the seventies I was a milkman and it has given me the idea to make these milkman animations. I used to drive an electric three wheeled milk float just like the one above and spent many happy years out on the road and around all the houses delivering milk. They were some of the happiest days of my life, I met many wonderful people and had quite a few unusual experiences so decided to make a blog about my experiences called Confessions of a milkman. Take a look and see just what a milkman's life is about. You may even have a use for these animations on your web pages and blogs or even in some sort of presentation
