block printing zombies

hello friends.
i went to the art store the other day, which is becoming an addiction for me lately. i can't really afford to be spending any money right now, and what do i do? i go to the art store twice a week. yikes
anyway, i bought some linoleum blocks and some carving tools and started making block prints! i haven't done that since high school. it's so fun! i love being able to take a single image and make multiple iterations of it, altering each slightly.

i started printing on anything i could find:

i think i'm going to start selling these so i can afford to buy more linoleum blocks!
this may or may not be a severe obsession.

one of my roommates, jacob, and i invented a new day: golfday
which involved us going to a driving range to hit golf balls, playing wii golf, watching a golf movie, and finishing the night with a blazing round of minigolf.

dead anyway

i started working on a couple of new projects recently. one of them is an animated short film, about zombies (of course), tentatively titled 'dead anyway'. one night, when i couldn't fall asleep for a few hours, i played out the whole story in my mind. when i woke up the next day, i tried to write down as much of it as i could remember.

then about a week ago, i went to my cousin's wedding. i bought myself the crappiest flights ever, so i had a LOT of time sitting in the airport. in an uncharacteristic spurt of productivity, i used that time to map out all the steps needed to finish the animation. i even made little deadlines for myself for each phase, marking them in iCal.

so, while i was hanging out at the house today, i glanced at my calendar and noticed, according to my plan, storyboards were due today. yikes! i hadn't even started them! sooo i ran to 'fido', a little cafe here in nashville, and drew storyboards for 2 and a half hours.

the short will probably be around 5 or 6 minutes long, which came to 166 separate storyboard panels. very rough drawings of course. some of the major moments i might redraw, cleaner. i just spent the rest of my night importing the drawings into flash and arranging them in order.

next, i must make an animatic, which is sort of a roughly animated storyboard. my iCal tells me that's due friday. =)

here are two pages of my rough storyboards:

goodnight all!
