Here are two more rough pages from my Igor book. The first is a sketch of him visiting a cemetery. I figure he still does that, even after he gives up his old life and works as a baker. How he get to Duluth? I can’t tell you that! That’s the story!

The second is a list he made. He gets very into making lists and trying to control his life via logical thinking. He goes so far as to set-up time each morning, each afternoon and every night to make his lists of activities and then check them off to see how he is doing.

So much energy and freedom seems possible compared to using Flash or doing collage style animation in After Effects. But it takes a lot more work too. Also I am thinking about posting a short story I wrote and did some drawings for. Perhaps in chapters. By the way, some amazing, beautiful amazing, grand, super-beautiful words-fail-me art on this blog, mainly background animation samples here.

From my camera phone, the pets are finally hanging on the wall. Originally I was going to do small framed pieces, but I ended up painting them about 15 x 15 inches.
