Dreamed (dreamt?) of a string of satellites tracking across the night sky.
Made the still sketch in to a gif to show the movement.
What’s weird is, sometimes the satellites track right to left across the image as intended, but sometimes they appear to track left to right.
Is that just me or is that happening for everybody?
a little down-screen 2 frame walk cycle art
crazy how much every pixel counts
updated the site logo
first i made this
but then i wanted the eyes to blink
so i made this
but then i wanted the animated logo to look more…animated
so i made this
now it’s probably too jiggly but i am tired
you can see a longer, larger more boring version of it above
winter logo gif had been up an embarrassingly long amount of time, I decided last month to get a new one up celebrating the blistering heat of june.
i made just over a dozen rough drawings in photoshop. (not enough even for decent animation) but i figured it was a good start and I’d get back to it soon.
and a month went by.
so today i slapped a little color over the line drawings and since i’m inherently lazy, it’s going to have to be good enough
i wish i wasn’t so lazy:(
This post is for my buddy Binh, who a few weeks ago, noticed this print while we were eating sushi at Ichiban one night. (As always, you can click on the image for a closer look.)
Binh asked me if I knew who did it and I had no idea; I assumed it was anonymous. You see it everywhere, so it’s not even something you think about.
It turns out, that this painting was done by the incredibly talented (and prolific) Japanese painter Hokusai, pronounced “Hawkseye.” The name of the print is, “The Great Wave off Kanagawa.”
The only reason I know any of this is because of
Cartoon Brew, where they had a post about the short film, “Hokusai-An Animated Sketchbook” done by animator Tony White. White is a British Academy Award winner and the film is terrific; be sure to check it out.
And you know, I must have seen this image a thousand times and never noticed the boats before. And, just look at that sea spray. Do you see Mt. Fuji in the background? It took this
Wikipedia article to point it out to me.
If you’re half as geeky as I am, you can continue to delve even deeper into Hokusai,
I love the internet.
