May (and April)

So, it looks like I missed posting anything in April.  I guess I didn’t have a lot to say, what with things being shut down and all.

Not much happening in May, either.  I continue to work on upcoming projects, and, predictably, start to find the work tedious and wonder what else I can do.

Oh, well.  Here are some stills from an upcoming project.

It’s a fairly simple thing, no real story, just images, but of course it has to be stubborn and refuse any easy egress.

Anyway, thanks for visiting and we will see you in June!

Leaping out of February

And so, another month gone.  In good news, I’ve started on a new project and have completed tons of artwork towards its fruition.  It doesn’t have a story, really, just a kind of showcase for celestial artwork.  I’m doing this because the opening of the last animation got a very positive response, and also because I have no idea what needs to happen in Chapter Three of “Instruction.”

Oh, I’ve got some ideas for imagery, but in terms of tying it together into something that might, vaguely, be called a “story,” no, that has yet to reveal itself.

I’m sure it will.  One thing I’ve learned is that you can’t force these things–they push back and you end up with regretted garbage.

See you next month, and thanks for stopping by.

“Alien House”

I was watching a video about the Kelly-Hopkinsville aliens, and their possible return some decades later.  There were photographs of footprints in the second part, and it struck me–why are so many of these alien visitors showing up naked?

Granted, they may have evolved beyond things like modesty, but there’s always protection against the elements and predators.  And carrying tools.  Clothes can be quite useful, so why not use them?

Then it struck me–maybe these visitations, abductions, home attacks, etc, over the years aren’t alien scientists studying us.

Maybe these are initiation rites to some alien fraternity.  “Okay, before we can let you into Delta Quadrant House, you have to go down and pretend like you’re attacking a farmhouse.  And you have to do this…while completely naked!”

That sounds like a great idea for a movie.  Call it “Alien House,” the story of how the wacky Delta Quadrant House got into all kinds of mischief.  The antagonist could be Dean Wormhole, who’s always trying to get them thrown out after their latest Grey party.

I tell you, it’s worth millions.
