A Couple of New Animations

I've been posting stuff to my new Tumblr account, but I'll be posting here too.

This first one I did for fun after hearing The Commodore's "Machine Gun." In a perfect world the animation would sync to the music a little better... But you get the idea.

And this next one I did after seeing Lindsay Small-Butera's comic about her experience watching the new Alice in Wonderland movie.

A Terrible Sunburn

One of the cons of working indoors. Also while I was working on this, I realized the setup was pretty similar to the way my last Zelda animation ended. But I still finished it anyway. So DEAL.

Don't Jump Before You Skim

I feel like every year there's a different type of insect infestation at my parent's pool. This year looks to be inchworms. Anyway, this addresses the general problem of jumping before you skim. It's a serious problem, folks.

Off to New Adventures

I probably won't write much about it, because honestly it's been quite the emotional rollercoaster, and I really need to get some sleep soon. But my last day at Soup2Nuts was yesterday, May 20th. It's been an amazing 4 + years. I've grown so much as an animator, but maybe even moreso as a person. In ways I never really expected, too, as a direct result of my time there, and the friends I made.

But, on Monday I'm off to Hero4Hire, and I hope to learn even more there. I'm really, really going to miss seeing all my friends from Soup on a daily basis. But I guess change is about give and take.

Anyway, I made this for them as a sort of final goodbye before I left on Friday.

Thanks for everything, Soup! It's really been the best 4 years of my life.

Flying into a Plank

Just did this for fun. Playing with physics and movement and such.

Mario Run Cycle

Animating run cycles is sometimes cathartic. Started out as some dope, then I turned it into Mario for no good reason. Really fun though, especially animating the hat and nose.

Tifa's Limit Break

Happy 4 Years!

I made this for coworkers Justin Cichon and Jen Blicharz, who started Soup on the same day I did, March 12, 2007. Happy 4 years, guys!

Dumb Frog

A frog tries to catch a fly. Mostly a study in water. Inspired by my current Atari 2600 "Frogs and Flies" desktop background.

Kicking a Wall

Time to release some of that energy.

Snow Day!!!

Time to spend the day doing exactly what I would've been doing if I'd gone into work!
