And there went June

Well, June had some things going on, none of them really interesting, though I did get some decent CGI work done.  And that was really it.  Found out my rent is going to greatly increase; not to worry, as soon as I can figure out how to put a PayPal button on the page, my legions of fans will no doubt spring to my aid.

Ha ha, just kidding.  Except not about the rent, damn it.

Anyway, here’s a still from my latest video.  Enjoy, and see you next month!

April almost gone? What?

Wow, we’re almost at the end of April.  And what have I been up to?

Well, nothing much.  Trying to survive.

Anyway, I completed a video project.  Here’s the link:

Hope you enjoy that; sorry if the preview image is a spoiler, but I’m new to this YouTube stuff.  Let me know if you don’t enjoy it and I’ll try harder.

And here’s something that might possible come to something, should fate be kind.  It’s just a preliminary image at this point…I don’t even have any actors for this!

(The red box is my “bounding box”, where things enter and exit the stage.  So I can herd my actors accordingly.)

So that’s the state of things.  As always, thanks for visiting, have fun, tip your waitress and I’ll see you all shortly…ish.

Works in Progress

I’ve spent most of March quite ill, with a persistent cold that would not go away.  Now, it seems to have largely departed, leaving aside some splitting headaches from what I assume is a sinus infection.

Anyway, I’ve not been idle, except for the past few days when the cold has laid me low.  Here are some stills from some upcoming animation projects.  (“Upcoming” being a very relative term.)

The first two are connected, the last is one I started because working on the first two was becoming difficult.

Anyway, thanks as always for stopping by, and I’ll see you in April.

Whoops! February Post

Wow, I almost let February go by without a post!  What a tragedy that would have been, and that’s no lie.

(Forgive the tone, I’ve been watching a lot of the old 80’s Ed Grimley cartoon*, and after a while it seeps into  your blood.  It’s like watching Betty Boop cartoons–watch more than five or six, and you start moving that way–you can’t just get up from a chair, you’ve got to syncopate yourself out of it.  It’s the same with Ed, but with talking more than moving, which probably affects posting rather more than Betty, I must say.)

Anyway, I’ve been busy with stuff–finally posted “Part Two” of my animation project and have been working on “Part Three” (somewhat) diligently since then, with some extremely decent results, just hoping to finish before…you know.

No painting, at least so far.  Tinnitus still is an issue, but then, it would be, wouldn’t it?

And I suppose that will suffice as a totally decent entry for the month–oh, and if that’s not an excuse we won’t be hearing again.  Because we totally will.

Thanks for visiting, as always.  See you in the future, which is already in progress!

*It was the 80’s.  Everything was being made into a cartoon.

Digital work in progress

Greetings.  I haven’t been doing any painting for weeks, now, and it seems unlikely I’ll resume doing so.  Circumstances are boring, so instead here are some stills from another project I’m working on, this one another Flash animation story.  Still in pretty rough form, but progressing okay.  Enjoy, and I’ll see you next month.

Canned Goods

Wow, there goes February.  I don’t have anything to say, really, since most of the projects I’m working on…aren’t being worked on, much.

How about a picture, then?

See you next month.

Stupid Flash Tricks, Part 3

Well, I finished up another Flash project–basically conceived and finished in ten days time.  Considering the last one took weeks, I’d say that’s some kind of progress.  Unlike the last two, everything (except for the audio) in this one was created entirely in Flash itself, with no PhotoShop imports.  Flash is still very primitive as a paint program, but I am slowly figuring out how to do things in Flash…something I never thought I’d say.  It’s nice to feel that I can do good work quickly–a nice feeling of accomplishment.

Here are some stills:

And the entire thing can be found here.

See you later, and thanks for stopping by.
