NEWS!... ON THE MARCH!!!
I'm almost certainly sure that some of my regular readers or perusers will have noticed the distinctive lack of drawings on this here blog. To avoid losing your precious precious attention -which let's face, is the only thing keeping this blog and myself afloat- I thought why not give you some idea of what I've been doing? For yes, I have been doing stuff.
1. I've been practising a lot on my animation techniques. I'm working on something that should hopefully prove quite interesting and have a question to which I hope you guys can provide some useful answers: Should I post my upcoming project directly on youtube or keep it here and perhaps contact Drawn! or The Animation Show websites, before putting it up on the tube? I ask this because I know how easy it is for people to steal other people's work and reproduce it as their own on youtube (whilst I agree with Nina Paley that copying is not technically theft, I'd still feel pretty pissed off if somebody copied my animations and said that they made them: I'm not talking about money, just pride in my work). I'm tempted by the potential audience it could get on Youtube, but still... I just thought I'd ask. Please let me know what you think.
2. The Complicated is writing a story. I am going to illustrate the story. I'll probably set up a blog specially for the story, once we accumulate enough pages. So, basically, prepare to have the socks rocked off your feet. Comps is an excellent writer and I hope this kind of project will get him noticed. I would give so much to read a Spider-man comic written by him.
3. It's exam period here at Soton Uni and finally the drunken louts who usually roam the streets and bicycle paths are all tucked away in their cess-pits (rooms) desperately preparing for their tests. Perhaps that's a little cruel... but hey, they do make an awful lot of racket. I too am studying and writing essays, but hopefully in about a week and a half's time I'll be free to finish my big project and get back to some traditional drawing.
Thank you for your kind attention and now... on with the show!
