Cartoon Brew’s Jerry Beck talks with some of the artists behind the upcoming stop-motion SpongeBob Christmas special… very interesting to see this style of animation!
I’ve only seen the first two episodes of this year’s new sci-fi show, Terra Nova, and they were awful. There are more episodes waiting on the DVR; I was going to give it a chance, but I think I’ll just delete them. I’ve heard it doesn’t improve, and I have better things to do with [...]
Been a busy week here. Animation Mentor semester 5 started this week. My mentor this semester is animator Jay Jackson, who has a very impressive 2D background. I’m very excited! Our assignment for the next few weeks will be to add facial animation to our last assignment from last semester, which I am both excited [...]
As they say: “Christmas is when you get stuff! You need more stuff!” Well, Christmas is over… it came and went as fast as a day goes by. I got some great stuff – here’s a picture! Here are my favorite gifts… Dollhouse: Season Two [Blu-ray]. I only saw two episodes from the second season, [...]

Google TV is coming out soon. I’ve been watching it for a while and I think it’s pretty exciting. The technology for the Internet and TV to merge has been with us for a while, but I think most content providers (TV channels, DirecTV and Dish, ISPs, etc.) are not willing themselves to fully initiate [...]
I woke up with a really bad headache today. Fortunately by the time I had to go to work it had subsided enough that I could act normally, but it didn’t fully go away until about 10 hours after I woke up. So I didn’t do anything but rest and pace around in the morning. [...]
19 days left until Christmas… Didn’t really do anything today, except go to work, which was exhausting. And now I’ll probably go to bed early since I’m… well… exhausted. But brownies are in the oven, so I suppose I have to wait around until those are done so I can have one. I changed Hannifin [...]
Is it “webcomic” or “web comic”? Anyway, I spent the day creating the Hannifin World site, my new web comic. Not sure how long I’ll be able to keep it up. Not sure I’ll keep the name either, but I couldn’t think of anything better. I definitely won’t keep the web design, but it’s something [...]
22 days left until Christmas… I work 8 hours on Thursdays, so there’s not much to say, because I haven’t done much. During my break I read a bit and watched Flash Forward on Hulu, which I’m really behind on. I also thought up some ideas for some comic strips… I was thinking of starting [...]
GAME PROGRAMMING It feels nice to be diving into game programming again. I’d forgotten how engaging it can be. Right now, however, I’m doing more graphics programming than game programming. I’m experimenting with OpenGL on Google’s Android operating system, trying to get a feel for how it all works. I hope to create a little [...]
