A few weeks ago I finally bought a Cintiq. I have been wanting one desperately for a long time, and I finally bit the bullet and got one. I had to purchase it for a gig I wanted. I got the Cintiq, I got the gig. I am working on a show called Ugly Americans. The production keeps me very busy so I haven't had much time to fool around with the Cintiq on my own stuff. So I finally got around to doing this sketch tonight with my new piece of equipment. As for Ugly Americans, all I can say is this; Finally, after a long career in animation, I know what it is like to work on a show that I am actually a fan of myself. I have often wondered this; what would it be like to work on Sponge Bob, or Flap Jack, or Fosters, or the Venture Bros, or any other show that I really like. Now I know, it feels every bit as good as I thought. Anyway, check out Ugly Americans on Comedy Central on TV and you can also watch full episodes on Comedy Central's website.
My girlfriend and I came up with an idea for a great little animated short, it is a spoof of 'The Five Deadly Venoms." This is the the first rough of the Old Kung Fu Master. This short is going to be an educational piece to teach kids. No, it's not going to teach them how to 'climb walls' like the Lizard, or have 'iron skin' like the Toad. It is going to teach them a grammar lesson.
