Animation Insider


I did an inter­view with the site Ani­ma­tion, which they just post­ed. You can check it out here, if you like. The site has inter­views with a num­ber of us who toil in the ani­ma­tion trench­es, if you have any curios­i­ty about what that’s like, what dif­fer­ent kinds of things we all do, or how we got there. We’re a pret­ty var­ied bunch.

And, of course, I got­ta post some art to go with this announce­ment. I had an idea of an image, and thought it might work to do it in Illus­tra­tor as an exper­i­ment. Guess the “no con­tain­ment lines” look of the project I teased in my pre­vi­ous post was still in the back of my mind. And that’s all for this one, before I get accused of liv­ing up to this illus­tra­tion!

Bloobee blee blah!

    Great inter­view! You gave a nice peek inside the ani­ma­tion busi­ness. And with per­son­al­i­ty too.

    I’ll read the inter­view quick, but I have to post about that pic­ture. I’ve expe­ri­enced that … it makes me wor­ry a lit­tle about how I sound when I get start­ed on comics.…blee bloh blee blah.…

      Great inter­view, I did­n’t know about work­ing in the stor­age facil­i­ty. It sounds like an inter­est­ing expe­ri­ence.

        Yeah, you got­ta start work­ing some­where! I under­stand why they set up shop in a place like that (low rent), and I’m sure it was fine work­ing in there dur­ing more tem­per­ate times of year. But the prob­lem was I was only avail­able to work there dur­ing the extreme tem­per­a­tures of Win­ter or Sum­mer. Despite all that, it was a valu­able expe­ri­ence, as I learned a lot about hand let­ter­ing.

    Nice inter­view, Mark. You know I’m in soft­ware, not ani­ma­tion, but I ful­ly agree with your com­ments on pol­i­tics, which I’ve found to be a dis­trac­tion and an imped­i­ment to real progress in var­i­ous projects I have been involved with. Up with decent peo­ple!
