This post is actually what made me want to create 22 new characters for a simple background scene in my new animation. It literally bugs me when there looks like there was almost 0 to no effort put in creating background characters. The fact the this series pushed so hard to make their background characters look just as interesting as their main characters is super awesome!
I hope I can share my new characters with you soon… ♥
You know you’re an animator/perfectionist when you’re bothered by the fact the character animation is alternatively timed and set mostly on 2’s while the major fx/wave/tracking is on 1’s.
I am not very fun at parties.
Great. Now I can’t unsee it. Thanks a lot.
Second batch of my Welcome/Sales signs at my job. They’ve gotten noticeably much more corny.

Animation A Day Project: August 2014- Things that make me happy
With all the stress I encountered from last month’s AADP, I thought I’d keep it simple this month and began thinking of some of the things that brought me joy. This set of projects feature silly things, fun things, things that inspire and are all quite important to me.
Hopefully, I can do a continuation of this theme in the future… :)
Hopefully I can get an early start on AADP this month. We’ll see.
Favourite work of the week, amazing food photography with a space narrative twist!

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
