Let’s go cold turkey on Thanksgiving with this weeks Sklarbro Country. The legendary Jonathan Katz and Tom Snyder come to the calming shores of Sklarbro country and talk bit rates, David Mamet’s joke style, and the tremendous nerves you feel when you open for the Harlem Globetrotters. Tom Snyder talks about his revolutionary animation technique Squiggle vision and the guys try to crack up the stoic Katz with good results. They polish it off with some highlights from Katz’s athletic career. Don’t forget to come see the Sklars at the Arlington Draft House on Dec 1st in Arlington, Texas!
Here’s the final animation for Andrew Lloyd Webber and that incorrigible little orphan Fourvel from the “Time Bobby” episode of Comedy Bang Bang! It is so funny and great and still my favorite! To see this animation bigger, click here!
ALSO, the legend of musical theatre is appearing on CBB TV tonight! I hope he enjoys his animation AND his night on television.
I ended up running out of time for color if I wanted something ready to post tonight, so I decided to experiment with making it look kind of old-timey instead. I’m still open to coloring it traditionally, though!
I LOVE THIS!! My friend Kirsten Lepore is working on a new stop-motion animated film and a bunch of us got together and designed puppet extras for her. Looks like little ol’ Fourvel is making a cameo! I built the skeleton and head for this guy but she finished him up (i.e. 90% of the work) and, I have to say, did a MUCH better job than I ever could have done. SO CUTE. Can’t wait to see him move!

WHAT’S THIS NOW? I drew a much less sketchy—but just as cartoony—Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber (here’s a peek into the artistic process: I found those illustration textures by googling “fancy”) and then, because I am that desperate not to work on my film any more tonight, I animated his cape. Just the keyframes, though. Shall I inbetween? Go to color, even? Let me know, tumblr.
Hey, speaking of someone completely unrelated to Andrew Lloyd Webber, I think you should know there is a comedy special coming out soon by the world’s funniest comedian and you should probably buy it, unless you despise cheer and don’t want it in your life.
