Self Portrait

Done in one hour looking into a mirror. Might actually go back into this one some more.


Superjail...cartoon excellence.

If you watch Superjail and are able to get past all of the violence, insanity, and incomprehensible trippiness of the storyline...the animation is really quite impressive. The characters defy all notion of "on model" from scene to scene and just revel in balls to the wall craziness -- while saying true to the princesses (or princaples) of animation.

I mean, really. If you're into animation or cartoons...or even art in general, you are really doing yourself a disservice by not appreciating how much the animators quite obviously, from shot to shot, revel in the world of playful, obscene craziness. I tip my hat to you guys.

Thats not to say the show is without stylistic problems...sometimes the compositions are amateurish and animation crude. But damn I feel the need to celebrate the freedom of it all.

I'd rather be drawing condom boxes

Thanks to everybody who helped out with the condom names. It was a true group effort. Stay tuned for even more condom excellence in the final comic.

HATEFARM

Hatefarm is on a hiatus till we get the new website and I am not so freaking busy with making cartoons at work. When it comes back though, I'm switching from Flash to Photoshop. I did this in about half the time it would have taken me in Flash. Comics were taking much too long. Also, going for a bit more of a cartoony feel...I think it's for the better. Do you?


This is the hook. It's catchy, you like it.

WIP

Coloring things out of my head is HARD. Mad respect to everyone who does it successfully. I think, with a few more rounds on this, I could nail it. PRACTICE MAKES PRETZELS!!!!

Movie Posters

It's been a sweet 3.5 years at ReelFX. I now have two big movie posters I worked on (only one shown) hanging up in our hallway! Damn it feels good to be a gangsta.



Posed out both characters.

Did some work on Boog/Elliot, posed out Ursa and some other little stuff.

A fart is a joke without words.

An animator's notes

My 2nd painting

Kind of feel like I'm polishing a turd beyond this point -- this was my attempt at using my own colors...which obviously didn't work as well as borrowing colors from a photograph, but I learned a lot.
I was trying to give her a wider jaw and caricature her...give her smaller eyes and nose...shy away from realism...in the final thing the "caricatured' feel definitely got lost.

And here is a BEAUTIFUL song from Little Big Planet 2. Turns life into a fluffy video game.

Cyberpunk

Pendulum - Encoder


I have been REALLY enjoying this song lately. It's not your typical Pendulum heavy drum n bass -- in fact its kind of poppy and very melodic. But I find it relaxing and groovy.

Questions

I saw some people the other day. Said people were all like... HAY ERIC YOU GAVE UP ON HATEFARM PRETTY QUICK and I'm all like NO SIR OR MADAM I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THE COOLEST CARTOON SHORT YOU HAVE EVER SEEN AND IT HAS BEEN ABSORBING ALL OF MY TIME. But in an effort to better connect with my inner internet, I vow to daily post doodles, cool music and other inspiration till I get back to HATEFARM'in. It gives me something to do outside of CONSTANT ANIMATION. I would also like to take this time to mention Justin Scheetz is the coolest cat this side of Mars.



Today, this epic beautiful lovesongelectrojam from ze Crystal Methods.

Falling Hard

I am running, 
I will meet you halfway. 
When I get there will you be waiting for me? 
I am scared, 
that you don't feel the same. 
And after all, 
just how much can I take?
