I did this animation for a series of Nike Japanese spots a number of years ago for Natterjack Animation Studios. It hasn't improved my game or my Japanese any.

Sorry - it's a bit blurry. This was done for International Rocketship for a 3D show for Nickelodeon, (you'll need your 3D glasses for the full effect, kids). It also came in handy for inbetweening assignments. I did the designs, story & animation in the middle. The late, great Paul Boyd did the animation for the beginning & end.

Time to try the video function. I figured out how to shoot pencil tests on my lap-top by shooting with the built in web-cam and editing in After Effects, (do I sound like a geek or what), so now I can shoot line tests while on the top of Mount Rushmore, (if I so desire). This is a cycle from the Sesame Street bit that I posted designs of earlier. This one isn't at colourful, but it moves more. There's always a trade-off.
Here it is in color, but now it's blurry and there's no sound. Why can't I get it right?

I've been advised that I should post something or 'face the consequences',.. so I feverishly ran for my sketchbook & found these. They're artists hard at work from the 'Golden Age of Animation', (roughly half a year ago). The artform has noticably deteriorated since then.

More drawings from the same movie - this time design ideas for a victorian era exotic dancer. Back in those days, colour wasn't invented yet and everyone ate steam for breakfast.
Here's some animation done for a combination zoetrope & organ device. Every home had one of those back in my day.

This was done at "Pork & Beans" for a Sesame St. vignette teaching mice how to wash their hands. I learned alot in the process of animating it. Did you know they've got this thing called 'soap' now?
Here's a bit-o-patty-cake from it. Coloring was provided by the aptly named Inksters.
