"Daily Doodle" or "Stargazing"

Watching the Perseids

I *really* like how this one came out. As I worked on it I was falling more and more in love with it and more and more afraid I was going to screw it up! However it's done and I still love it. Not a super quick sketch...it took me about an hour.

I wanted to capture the feeling of the early morning...the best time to catch the Perseid meteor shower in August.

"The Day's Report" or "Twitch Twitch Twitch"

It was another productive day today though I spent it on another project that had to get worked on this red hot second. I think all of them are done for the time being and I can get back to work on the Lola animation.

I had to get a DVD made of the Cinderella puppet show. Taking the video footage off one of the other puppeteer's camera and getting all the other clips I had in order took a while as did figuring out some of the ins and outs of iMovie and iDVD. I had to create a little bit of content which was fun.

The whole thing wound up being a little under 2 hours...so making everything and then BURNING it took a goodly while. While it was going I didn't dare open Animate...I was afraid of horking my computer with two robust programs and I didn't want to start the DVD burn all over again.

One of the last days of performance me and Texas (another puppeteer) went backstage, grabbed a few of the puppets and acted out scenes to her Into the Woods soundtrack. Fortunately Lisa captured a lot of them and I put them on the DVD as well.

I made some little cartoon slides for the Into the Woods clips on the DVD. Here's the one I made for "Agony." It was about a 20 minute doodle.


Agony


In other news...my right eye has been twitching the last few days. It's increasingly annoying. I also had a hive breakout last night...and I know it wasn't anything wheat or sugar related that set it off. I think I need to find an extremely mild laundry detergent as well. Any suggestions are more than welcome!
