Daily Crapbook: Cat Ear Sketch

Sketching ideas for this week's GirlsDrawinGirls.  I think this time I'll take my time and go through some revisions instead of going with my very first brainburp.

Penny Serenade Logo

Had to come up with a quick logo for Penny Serenade, as we already have a gig at a summer festival and I hope we have enough songs ready to fill the whole time slot.

LowCarbComedy Fan Request Animation: Board-o-Matic

video

My good and talented friend Zoran has commissioned some more animation for his comedy hub, LowCarbComedy.com.  Now might be as good a time as any to go over some process.  When I embark on a project, I do a board-o-matic.  How is this different than an animatic, one might ask?  It isn't much different, but I like to distinguish the two because the term "board-o-matic" is something I reserve for something really rough and composed mostly of chicken scratch.  Its just basically post-it notes I've scribbled on and then move around.  However, in this case, I skipped the storyboard because so much of the impact was timed to the music.  I just needed to get my idea down as quickly as possible, so I did this on little index card sized scraps of paper and timed it out in Flash with camera movements when necessary.  If you think this looks rough, check out the board-o-matic for Monkey Rag.  (I know I called it an animatic, but it is in truth a board-o-matic.  And yes, I just make up these rules as I go along.)

Monkey Rag Is [Almost] Done

Just an update on where I am with Monkey Rag:  While I'm hesitant to call it done, it is comped and is in a mostly fit state to submit to festivals.  Ideally I would have wanted to sit down and fix the remaining hiccups before beginning the submission process, but it was so important for me to make the Ottawa Animation Festival deadline we decided to send it as is.  It broke my heart to miss the Toronto deadline- I don't think I would have ever forgiven myself if I missed Ottawa.  So Nate threw it on a DVD and made it to FedEx, and now we have a little breathing space and can take our time to finesse the remaining hitches in Monkey Rag's gitalong.
