Clap? Snap?


Clap? Snap?
Originally uploaded by Awed Job
If one hand were to clap the fingers would need to act as hands and come together rapidly producing an explosion of sound. To me, that's what a snap is. It's not the feeble, half fold over hand motion Bart shows Lisa in an early episode of the Simpson's.

The sound of one hand clapping is a snap!

Back with Tons of Horse Power!

An Ed Roth inspired sketch with a dash of Ducky Awesmomeness tossed in.

Wagon Snake: AffableHipster

I was trying to envision a regular sized snake swallowing a covered wagon but I couldn't make it work. Instead I give you a gigantic snake. As if the settlers didn't have enough to worry about.

Conch: thorn

Conch: thornAnyone read "Lord of the Flies"? To speak a person had to possess the conch shell. Reminds me of when I was working on a group animated project. Instead of budget for a content management software to control who animated what character in which scene, we just used a conch shell.

This thing was quite the enigma to sketch. Wishing I had decided some other medium. Something dry and not wet. Though, the shell does come from water. It's a sketch and I cheated a bit in rendering. Didn't keep enough white out for certain areas. Started light enough that it was easy to go darker if I had to. Still there's a lack of pop from certain areas.

Procrastination: consumatron

procrastination-consumatronThese dudes were all over the place in my animation classes. To hear them tell it, their finished animation was going to be greater than the current Hollywood blockbuster.

In some classrooms, last year's movie hits were played during lab time. It was considered "research" though I have no idea how it helped anyone.

History: woox2

History-woox2One nice thing about requests in text form only is the amount of freedom it affords. Woox2 wondered if I could represent "History". Of course. I give to you the man who instead of admitting any personal failings prefers to let history be the judge.

I decided to create this one as a continuous line drawing to represent the never ending string of lies and deceitful maneuvers. I for one will be happy when his political line recedes into history once and for all.
