"God Forgot About Me" - Animation Bit

This post on reddit caught my attention.  It's a 2D character animation bit by Erin Humiston.

Here's a link to the animation.

It's a great illustration of using accents during dialogue bits to emphasize the acting.  Just look at the character's expressions when he says "Flatbelly Experts/Dirt Nap/30 years ago!".  Great stuff!  Check out his website here:

"True Grit" - Interpolation progress

I've started interpolating some of the "True Grit" animation.  I'm going bit-by-bit , so I'm only posting the first 140 frames.  From now on I'm adding timecode in all of my videos, so if anyone wants to critique feel free!

Blizzard Blocking

the view outside my apartment...

It is snowy and cold outside (and in...) my Brooklyn apartment, and in order to delay the grim commute to work I am doing some blocking work!  This piece of dialogue is from "True Grit" and I actually animated the same dialogue a year ago, so I'm doing this one as a revamp.
