Just uploaded today on Loop De Loop, the latest Zooniverse animation! This is the origin story folks! Many of the shots were traced off panels from the comic I did back in 1994 I'll detail more on the blog in a few days.

Thanks to Helen Maier for composing such an amazing soundtrack!

For our veiwers in Melbourne there are 2 screenings, one Thurs. 26th at a new venue 'the Wilde Bar' in 153 Gertrude St. and the end of month on Tues 31st at the 'Loop Bar' as usual, check the Loop De Loop site for details!

oh man those roiling clouds at the end are TOTALLY SWEET, especially given that they're made up of what looks like maybe three different drawn elements at most.

Thanks, it worked out okay, huh? I checked, the entire cloud was made from one large BG element and three smaller ones. They were all traced off a comic panel I did back in 1994, so that the animation would be accurate to the printed work. But seeing it move is way cooler!! :D

It worked out pretty amazing for four drawings! If I was still animating on a regular basis that trick would so be going in my mental toolbox. (Every time you post a LdL I'm always tempted to do one but oh god I have so many other things clamoring for my attention right now…)

Thanks, it's all tricks. I'm late on getting started on this month's loop. I gotta get cracking!

I believe your animations have inspired me to go back to work on Flash projects. I burned out on Flash 3 years ago, absolutely hating tweening, but not having the time, energy, and income to do everything frame by frame. Looking at your work, it made me realize that tweens, if done right, will not detract from the quality of an independent production and should not be cast aside as something that only "lazy hacks" use.

Love the work that you do, and I hope you keep going strong! :squee:

Thank you for taking a look at my animations! It means a lot, especially if it inspires you to keep experimenting.

Don't forget, you can submit your own loop too!

I have been working with Flash since '97 marrying it with Zooniverse is a new and often scary direction for me, mainly because I have to do the voices. So I truly appreciate receiving encouragement! :)

Awesome, not sure where to post the next bit, so it goes here!

Just got the first Zoonmini in the mail and have to say I was pretty jazzed about the whole thing, awesome art which has me really anticipating the next one! Your alien designs, combined with the whole melting pot society, is amazing!

Thank you for your support, it's thanks to you and other fans calling for published work that I came up with the Zoonimini format to bridge the gap until the collected edition is completed.

I'm half way through preparing the next Zoonimini which has a pre-Zooniverse comic that was printed in Australia in 1983.

Also Brandon Graham and I are working on a 5 page interview type thing for issue #27 of Prophet. If the Editors approve it, you'll see how I did comics back then.

So much wonderful stuff is in the works!

That's awesome news!

Looking through your work has really made me buckle down and get back to my own art, truly is awesome to have stumbled upon your page and see a lot of the work that has really inspired me throughout the years.
