DRAWINGS IN THE 4th DIMENSION

Last year I started making a series of hand-drawn animated gifs, "4D drawings", initially one each day for a month and continuing one a week for the past year. The tight parameters of weekly deadline, loopy format, and the necessarily small file size have been very exciting to explore.
New ones are still posted every week at http://zeathefourth.tumblr.com

backhoe and fraunch {below} along with foamhawk and the saddest stache in the world were preselected last year for the first ever large open call GIF festival Moving the Still and featured on their site.
Fraunch has gone on to gather over 25,000 favorable notes on tumblr.

STOP THE GENE WILDER REMAKES

T-Shirt design and Guerilla Campaign
previously available at wireandtwine.com

This project started with a maniacal stroke of insight and a sharpie. Already lamenting the sad cinematic remakes of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and the Producers, I caught wind of Young Frankenstein on broadway and various discussions about Blazing Saddles and was taken with such outrage that the next generations will be robbed on the genius that is Gene Wilder, I took up a pen, called a printer friend and started telling all my friends I needed a 12 shirt minimum to get them printed. Soon my inbox was filling with sympathetic strangers by word of mouth. And, shortly, I was stuffing envelopes with t-shirts to send around the world to passionate Wilder fans everywhere.

Then, Tom over at wireandtwine.com asked if his hand-printing operation in Cleveland could help and the shirts were available around the clock for purchase for years to follow.

Still haven't been able to get a shirt to Gene yet, let me know if you've got contact.

POPSICLE - ANIMATED SHORT


Popsicle was my first animated short in a brand new self-taught method that combined traditional handdrawn animation and stop-motion. It follows the sordid story of a popsicle at the zoo.

We also recorded our own sound effects
