Jam Sandwich!

Sooo, It's been a while since I posted. I'm sorry. I probably say that a lot. I've just been really busy with work. I'm back at Big Bad Boo working on a show called 1001 Nights. Lots and lots of long hours and weekends being destroyed...

On the side, when I do get some free time, I am working on 2 animated shorts. One is what I have been posting in the past (The Family Mart and the interior layout). I am still working on layouts for that short. They take time because I'm working on a small graphire3 tablet that frustrates me and makes me not so motivated to work on layouts. I dream of  one day owning a cintiq and working on these layouts to the best of my ability.

The second animation short I am working on is going to be a fun flash style cut out short. I would eventually like to make a short once a month and put it on youtube and vimeo. I drew up some characters and it's going to be about these funny little mobsters during the prohibition in the 1920s. It's going to be really stylized and snappy animation. I will be collaborating with some my 2 friends I am working with at Big Bad Boo. They also have ideas of their own. We will hopefully be alternating on what short to work on together each month. I'm excited about this because this will be our "own" stuff and not some company's we are working for.

I'll post up some of the character builds soon for the mobster short, but in the mean time here is a chick eating a jam sandwich.
