Some weird ones

Here are some weird drawings. Very A-typical of what I usually mindlessly churn out.

I feel really lame whenever I post but don't include an image. So I hope this makes up for the last one. This is a concept sketch for an idea me and some friends are working on. It's about a boy who travels from island to island in a world like earth that isn't earth. Also there's a war going on and some people are turning into lizards because of radiation. There's a lot more to it than that but I think we are saving a lot of that information for later when we can put together a more cohesive presentation.
I did the color with copic markers. I like them very much but they're not so good once you get out into big fields of color, like the sky. Then it's hard to hide the strokes.

Apologize for nothing!!

Last night I saw Cracker play at the basement. For those of you who may not know Crackers lead signer is David Lowery, who also the lead singer Camper Van Beethoven. Any way I had the opportunity to talk to him, and by that I mean that I broke all the rules and drunkenly walked right back stage and shook his hand and introduced myself. Nothing really came of it, but I don't know what would of really? Either way I talked to him more after the show, and by that I mean he sort of gave me the brush off, but his wife/girlfriend (not sure) said that she loved the video and showed her kids in the Czech republic. (I was kind of confused about them being Europe maybe I heard wrong and they were someone else's kids)

Anyway that's pretty cool, knowing that people as far as the Czech Republic have seen my video. You know that actually reminds me of when I was at the LA film festival. I popped back in on the last day to try and find somebody but instead an Italian guy recognized me and told me that he really liked the Lassie video, and we both agreed that Space girls was really bad. It was trust me. Or trust this.

Any way my point is that I think Europeans have good taste in animation.

Any way back on the note of apologizing for nothing in my last post I made mention that the Seal animation wasn't as funny as I hoped it would be. Well I take it all back. At the time when I said that I had only showed it to people who already knew what was going to to happen. Since then I have shown it to a lot more people, and people who have had no prior exposer to the idea, and their reactions have been more than satisfactory.

At Long Last, Completion!

So, I finally finished the seal animation. Maybe it isn't that funny. Maybe it is needlessly violent, but you know what? I came up with this idea at a party it was really, really, funny then, and I promised myself that I would turn it into an animation one day. That day was yesterday!

Any way I think the animation turned out really smooth and that's what matters the most anyways. I'm just glad to be finished. Finally I can start thinking about what comes next.

...Oh right well I guess it's not totally done. I still need to tweak some of the volume levels, and if I could get Kon to do the live action intro that would blow my mind. I don't think he will though he didn't seem to into the idea. Oh well maybe there is someone else who could do it...
