Hellooooo ball!!! (Honeymooners gag)
Well, I've finally found a professionals forum for that art of animation that I love so well.
I'm from the comics industry, well I'm a radical from the news & comics industry. One of those maverick dudes but I can see the similarities with both industries as I know a lot of folks in both.
For the past ten years I've been in the 'Circle of Strife' thingie watching the good the bad and the ugly and I've got to say the only thing that keeps any industry strong are ethics, solidarity and sanity. Hard things to come by! Yet I've noticed how you animators do stand strong. You should. Everyday I get solicitations to develope shows/properties from the companies and it always ends up in some screwy situation that even I can't fathom. I could go on and on and those of you who know me, know I'm not one for tolerance with exploiters.
So I enjoy creating comics and animation for the web and developing new technologies and opportunities outside the conventional. (Wait'll you see the new inroads we're making with CDs and DVDs!).
To my pals at Disney, WB, FilmRoman etc. get set cause I'm movin' to LA to crash. :)
(Hey is that gorilla skeleton still in the hallway at Disney features? I want it for my front lawn)
If any of you creatives get that urge to make your own stuff and need help fightin' exploitation, feel free to send me an email. I know alllll the scams :)
Be careful going to some of my websites as they range from G rated to you-know-what.
