“CAT BIRD COYOTE” is a film I designed and animated for Amy Raasch, as part of a larger project of hers about animal behavior. The film premieres today on Huffington Post Entertainment, and will be available to watch on every Virgin America flight through January on the Boing Boing channel! It has also been collecting awards at multiple film festivals. This little film is going on a big journey!
My mom made me the majority of my stuffed animals. While on a hunt for long-lost boxes of Sculpey today, I came across a bag of perfectly-good stuffed animals that were quite endangered! Who knows when a burglar possum’s going to break into a shed and hold all its stuffed animals hostage, or kidnap them because of their irresistible cuteness?
Yep, that’s a crab playing a violin.
Here’s my layout homework for this week. Assignment was to draw a coyote and a goat having tea. I’m liking the idea of making all layout homework a color adventure, and a character design one as well. It’s like… Layout/color theory/character design all rolled into one. Then again, throw in animation and that’s what [animated] filmmaking is all about!– Oh, and story too. Can’t forget that!
