In my animated project, Adventures In Nowhere Land, Flea Market Phil is an avid reader and collector of comics. So there’s a lot of discussion about the history and minutia of comics. That means I’m working on fictitious Golden Age comics. Heres my first one: The Secret Solder trying to catch the Master Racer, a super fast fascist, who was originally created to win the 1936 Berlin Olympics, the experiment went horribly wrong. The Master Racer was not permitted to represent the German team, because he talked too fast and too much.
Here’s the first model sheets — yeah, I know these aren’t “traditional” model sheets. That must be a big shock, because I’ve always been soooo traditional. Yeah, right.
In studying model sheets over the years, I’ve come to the conclusion that everybody has their own take on format. But calm down, I will make some more instructive model sheets in the near future. These are really to get across who the character is in lieu of putting together a “bible” for the project.

Last month I went "Drinking and Drawing" where over 100 animators showed up an NYC bar called M1-5 to collaborate on an animated film about a gorilla. It was organized by the fun people at Frederator Studios. We'll be doing it again in April. Here's some video I shot of the event -- it's my first attempt at Final Cut Pro.
