Getting Back to it

In August, I started my full time position teaching Experimental Animation at CCAD.  Needless to say, it put a little delay in the drawing action for Longhair and Doubledome's graphic novel.  But finally the dust is clearing, my assignments are organized, my classrooms are functional and I have moved my junk into my new office.  Back to work.

Drawing development

Sometimes a drawing doesn't work the first time out. Developing a pose until you are satisfied and the darn thing looks right, takes patience and "eye". The one thing I really like about work in analog and digital, is being able to tweak a drawing digitally. In the days of old, making 5 or ten xerox copies to change size, redraw, was very painstaking. It worked but it took work. Tweaking an analog drawing can really help push the pose.

Animals of the Pleistocene Epoch

I am happy to announce that the graphic novel for Longhair and Doubledome is moving along.  These animals were initially planned to make appearances, in the pilots but hit the cutting room floor.  Always wanted Longhair and Doubledome (if it had been a show) to be 11 minutes in length instead of the pilots 7:20....more time for comfort in the cut and more gag material with the fauna of the time.  But the graphic novel allows for these guys to finally make their debut....
