Messing Around with Photoshop and Flash animation

I'm trying out some new techniques for my latest animation project. This test is a combination of Hand drawn artwork, Photoshop, and Flash. I like the potential I see in combining these techniques. The early development phase of any project is really the most fun, AND important. It's these early choices we as creators make that shapes the outcome of the final piece.

They'll be many more discoveries I make on the road to finishing this latest project... maybe that's one of the reasons I like making stuff!

Me and Illustrator, Storyboard Director and Children's Book Author CHRIS ROBERTSON discuss the process of making Children's Books. I realized only AFTER finishing recording that this ep went almost 2 friggin' hours! This tells me that either me and Chris talked REALLY slow, or there's a whole bunch of content in it. The best thing about podcasts is You the listener can judge for yourself! Take a listen... If you can keep up with us!

SuperMonsters at the Christmas Craft Fair!

I Had a fun time tabling at the Christmas Craft Fair this weekend. I did a lot of drawings and talked with some pretty neat people and even sold a few thing too! While I love making stuff, and blogging about it, participating in a show (craft, book, art, comic, etc.) gives me a real sense of completion. I'm like a farmer who just went to market to sell his freshly picked crop, or a fisherman sailing into market with his freshly caught fish.

It was a good day at the market but now it's time to work the ground again and get ready for the next harvest!

Me and Artist/Self-publisher, TYLER JAMES discuss what the Internet means to our Art! Topics include his Really Neat and successful 30 Characters in 30 days Challenge which just concluded, as well as, well... ALOT of topics related to what the Internet means to our Art! Sure it's a "Broad" topic, but don't call her a "Broad" she's a "Lady"!
So, if you get a chance, give it a listen!
