Next year's homework: part 2

Weight lift & Toss assignment

Wanted to get a sense of effort into this one. Oh, How I love rubber hose animation!

Speaking of which, Check out the Fleischer cartoons posted on Dailymotion
: "The Dancing Fool" , and "Betty Boop's Museum" are especially great. They are pure cartoons (A term I first heard from Mitch) with unrestrained humor, joy and imagination.

Btw, I will add a face of the Toss!

Time to give a lil' sumpin' back

Sharper scans are up!

Put these up for John who sent me a very thoughtful and generous letter back in 1998. In his recent posts he talks about why its important to construct a drawing, rather than draw straight ahead.

Next year's homework: Part 1

Waveboat Assignment

I've got some spare time now, and I'll have none when school starts. As always, my fingers are yearning for new projects, so naturally I started working on next year's homework.

To time the waves I studied Bob Clampett's masterpiece Horton Hatches the Egg. In my opinion, the best adaptation from storybook to cartoon.
