Monkey Rag Update

I hadn't planned on posting this now, but as I'll be in Las Vegas for most of this week I wanted to have something on my blog to show during my absence. This is the board-o-matic for the Monkey Rag music video I've been going on about for ages. Its mostly small thumbnails (with just a few key poses and a small smattering of animation) so it doesn't really have that cutesy, bouncy feel I'm going for. It also missing a lot of a gags I've come up with and haven't sketched out so some of this stuff doesn't make sense to anyone but myself. To sum up, this is the bare bones, skeletal, anemic beginning of what I plan to be a fun and charming little cartoon. When I get back from my trip, I'm going to dive into working on this.

That's looking like a lot of fun, Jo. Don't know if we ever had a class together but I always enjoyed seeing your work at the animation shows. Stumbled across your blog from another scaddie somewhere's.

Looking forward to seeing this fleshed out more:)

I really can't wait to see this. The animatic looks very promising. Then again, all of your work does.

Thanks guys! It means a lot to me to have such positive feedback.

And Josh- I don't think we had a class together, but there were several Joshes I knew of at SCAD. I can't access your profile, but I think I recognize the character in your icon. Are you Josh Burton?
