cabin in woods.




Here's another image from the Twisted Whiskers show I'm working on. The show is all CG, but there's a Halloween episode where Tiny Head tells the story of how his cabin was built over the top of a hole where a monster lives. This sequence will be animated in Flash and will look like this painting I did.

boingo.



This is an image I created for an animated show I'm working on called Twisted Whiskers. It's an episode where we imply something bad has happened to poor Boingo the space monkey and we cut to this photo. I cobbled together a couple astronaut photos, took an existing Twisted Whiskers monkey head, and exaggerated the mouth and then weathered the whole thing to look like an old photo. Bill Kopp, our director, sometimes signs personal letters with "Stay funny!" and I thought it'd be funny if Boingo did the same.

let's write a sawng.

Rivers Cuomo, the front man for Weezer, started a videoblog on Youtube called "Let's Write a Sawng" where people all over the world can contribute video responses and literally write a song together. He acts as the ringleader and the director and it seems like he watches all the uploads. I'm sure it's some promotional thing for Youtube and not like this is something he decided to do out of boredom but that doesn't take away from the fun. I think he approaches it in a pretty genuine way and the song isn't turning out half bad. It isn't officially finished yet and it's been a few months since he's posted. I guess he's busy out touring and all that.

If you start watching from the 1:00 mark you'll see him referring to a video I actually uploaded. (The sound is weird because Rivers often pitches his videos up or down for comedic effect.)



Below is the actual video I uploaded to him.



Which was in response to this one.
