I've had yet another working dark period, but finished the job just in time to prepare for some Penny Serenade gigs! They are all dancer friendly and free, so if you're in Atlanta swing on by! The first one of July is this Saturday morning at Piedmont Park.
Had to contribute to the #SketchDailies topic of #TomandJerry. Not only because I've been gainfully employed by the new cartoons, but these characters are truly cartoon giants. They go against every modern filmmaking rule of "Story first!" and focus entirely on being entertaining and appealing characters. They do share some moments of solidarity which can be very sweet though.
A few months ago, during my last "dark period", I was busy working on a project that I was super-psyched about. Now I can officially reveal what it was, even if I can't show the clips myself. It was for a sequence on "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt", one of my favorite new shows. I mostly animated the cutesy critters, but got one or two with Princess Kimmy. I wish time allowed to animate frame-by-frame, but alas, ain't that always the way these days. But it was still a kick-ass project, produced by Steeleworks Animation. I'm very grateful to have been a part of it.
