a chicken cowboy painting

I'm trying to find a way to get more of a textural, painterly feel in the film itself, short of painting every frame. But that might be fun too.

Been saying for a long time that I would put my sophomore film, "bigfoot's eulogy" on utube. Here it is.

The compression's not hot and the animation's looking a little rough around the edges these days. But the story's there, which is the really fun part for me. It was also fun putting my pets and grandma's fur coats on the ol' flatbed scanner.

boards are fun

I love crayons. Not always the most practical way to board, but they suit me.

more roof doodles

when I was 4 I split my chin open in an ice cream store. I distinctly remember the doctor's hand coming in and out of my sightline while he stitched my wound. this is what it would like like if he was on fire.

"I used to take life drawing.. Boy--did I get excited about that; they didn't wear any clothes!"

me: I didn't know you did that.
gigi: there isn't much I haven't done!
