Learn Animation

This is a testimonial video I did for the folks over at 2d Animation 101. I’m self-taught at this (like you can’t tell), and their courses helped me a lot. This is the first time I’ve tried to composite live action with animation, which was kinda fun!

Velociraptor App

One of the fun things about cartooning is working in some easter eggs. In the past I’ve used a picture of Vyvian from the Young Ones, for example. It may mean nothing to most people, but it’s fun for me. This one has several: Rush and Animal House, just to name a few. I think a velociraptor app would be …

Ice Capades

Ice machines are great whenever you need one or a million ice cubes.

Number Two

We have a long-haired cat, and every now and then, there’s issues with the fur. Like, when she does her private business. It got me thinking… surely Chewbacca had this problem? I also want to thank the fine folks over at 2DAnimation 101… I picked up a few tricks on character rigging and replacement animation from their courses. Excellent stuff. …

Jawas Everywhere!

I seem to be stuck on Star Wars parodies right now. Maybe it’s the release of Rogue One (I have a K2SO one on tap too!). Anyway, here’s another one for you…  

Eat Lead, Suckers!

I don’t know why I found this funny, but I did. Deal with it. See, it’s almost summer time, which means mosquitoes, so it’s time to break out the citronella oil, and that only means… Twiki torches. Whatever happened to that Buck Rogers remake anyway?  

Weekend at Ringling

Ringling College of Art and Design has been in my back yard for 47 years and I’ve never been there. Shame on me. I finally took the time to take some classes there, and it was amazing. Really helped me understand basic forms, gestures and scene composition. Feel in love with sketching again too! Here’s a few shots of from …

Abuse the Force

Every once in a while I like to do something other than DeadChuck. Star Wars parodies are prime targets, like this one. For the video below, I was inspired when my nephew sent me a meme showing R2D2 encountering a Captcha form. How would he respond? How else might the Death Star be different if it was built in 2017 …

No One Told Me

So… this is going to be an odd post because, honestly, all I really want to write is “here’s a funny video about a zombie using a bidet.” But blogging is a strange business, and you have to write posts that the search engines will like. So I am trying to follow the advice of the Yoast SEO plugin. It …

Hot Love

I’ve been married going on 18 years. Some guys write love songs or poems. I draw cynical cartoons. But the hell of it is… I would not trade this for anything. And this short post has zero SEO value, so what more can I say?
