Raising the Bar

Thank you all for coming!  I hope this experience is as rewarding for you as it was time-consuming for me.  Rather than ruining this experience for you any further, let's just get right to it.

The following is a project that took me about three months to complete.  It could probably still use a bit more polish and shine, but... you know.  You may recognize the giraffe as the famous Geoffrey the Giraffe from Toys 'R Us.  I'm not sure how trademarks and copyrights work but I figure I should mention that the general design of this character is not my doing.  Maybe if I took off the stars it wouldn't have been a problem.  

For best viewing, click on the 720 HD option on the bottom right if it's not already.  Crank up the sound.  And give it the ol' full screen treatment.  If the high def is too slow you can reduce the resolution or just give it some time to prep.

And now for the moment no one's been waiting for...



If you happened to miss the premiere showing, there will be a series of encore showings from now until the end of the internet.
Thanks again for coming.  Don't forget to sign the guest registry.

Sneak Peek

Almost done.  Here are a few clips that may or may not be in my near-completed cartoon. Technically these are scraps anyway, because i accidentally converted the images from 4:3 aspect ratio to 16:9 (widescreen).  That's why he looks a little stubby.

If all goes according to plan I should have it done by Monday or Tuesday.
Wish me luck.

Shrub-a-dub dub...

Let me introduce you to Shrub.  You may have seen him lurking around my blog here and there.  Incidentally, he's been posing as my profile pic for quite some time.  I'm not quite sure why he never got a formal introduction.  I created him for a character design class last summer. He's a nomad in search of answers.



Maybe in some distant future he'll get some screen time.  But for now, he's staying with me until the weather gets better.
