Friendly Neighborhood....

Spider Clam, Spider Clam,
Like a spider but in the sand,

Spins a web, from his side,
Catches thieves, in the tide,
Watch out!
(Pow! Bam!!)
Here comes the Spider Clam...

Puss n Briefs

In light of the last post, I thought I would add some levity to my blog...

I don't know, I just thought this was funny.

R'n'R Mamas, Graffiti

Part of something I'm working on for the "Rock 'n' Roll Mama's" documentary...

video

I'm using a technique combining Flash and Maya, and I'm totally digging the look and workflow. It kind of gives the Flash a 3D and organic look (sort of) and I have the flexibility to change, move, adjust elements around while all the time utilizing the Maya camera.

So my next question is, how do I sell this style and do something really cool with it. My tendency is to say I want to make a feature film doing it all this way, and I guess I could. What it then come down to is getting a hold of an intriquing story, (I have notebooks full of them), and then sitting down for about a year and cranking it out.

I tend to be my own worst enemy, my worst critic, and in turn I usually don't ever get to the projects I love. As you can see from above I end up doing all this cool experimental animation for other people, and that tends to be a tad on the unsatisfying side.

So from now on I'm going to approach things differently.

Maximilian - Demo

This demo shows some experimenting with animation technique and look.

video

Maximilian Kolbe (January 8, 1894 – August 14, 1941), was a Polish Conventual Franciscan friar who volunteered to die in place of another prisioner in the Nazi concrentration camp of Auschwitz. He was canonized by Pope John Paul II on October 10, 1982. He is the patron saint of drug addicts, political prisioners, families, journalists, prisioners and the pro-life movement, and is declared “The Patron Saint of Our Difficult Century”.

I was fooling around with Flash again and pondering what is really going on in the Middle East. It doesn't seem so bad to me.

Little Rock 'n' Roll Girl




Another one of my ideas that remains in limbo, about a little girl who's parents are... well, out of the ordinary. That's about all I'm going to say about her at the moment. This particular design is heavily influenced by Shane Glines; http://www.shaneglines.net/ a favorite illustrator of mine, except his characters usually wear less clothes and are far less innocent. More on the Little Rock 'n' Roll Girl to come.

Bone Boy Flash

video

Here's a little Bone Boy Flash animation I did a few years ago while I was teaching in Denver. I always liked this concept and the way the animation of the skeleton boy turned out. Flash is a favorite tool of mine.

Bone Boy - 1

Okay... here we go. I'll start with something I've been half-baking for years. This is one of my favorite ideas I would someday like to finish. But here are couple of test runs I did. These are done in Maya 3D with Flash elements. Except for some of the BG artwork, I did everything.
