Chipmunk - An Animation Test For Cartoon Series Idea


This is a cartoon short that I made a while back. I had this animated series idea that I was kicking around about a monster that lived in a house that was haunted by humans.
I never really finished writing the story itself.

But I did do this.

One day I was in my kitchen and I kept hearing this chirping noise. I looked out the window and the chirping noise was actually this chipmunk right outside the window eating an acorn. I had my digital recorder with me and I recorded the sound.

I decided I would animate the sound I recorded just to do kind of a mood for what the character and the look of the cartoon would be like. The whole thing took just a few hours. But this is all I've ever really done with the idea.

I've always wanted to try and finish the story.

VMware set up for the band.

We've actually made tons of progress for working remotely using Ubuntu studio and GitHub. But the set up does take time.

The heat.

I actually don't mind the heat.

Vintage Illustration Artwork from Calling All Girls Digest from 1962

Here is some illustration artwork from a vintage magazine digest I found from 1962 called "Calling all girls". This was a magazine that was for teens that later became Young Miss magazine. It has a lot of really cool two-color illustrations for each of the articles in the digest.
If you would like to see more of the books that I've collected from resale shops over the years I also sell them in my eBay store.



Each issue also had a minicomic called Tizzie by Kate Osann. Tizzy, the title character, was a stereotypical teen-aged American girl. The episode drawn in this comic was Tizzie and her first job as a babysitter. And much like the rest of the book it used a two-color theme.





I actually like to try and recreate old ads like this and repurpose the artwork by illustrating them for band flyers.
