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.

Free Music Archive: A talk about the future of music and art on the internet - Tom Ray's Art Podcast 210110

One of my favorite music sites is opening again, the Free Music Archive !  I talk with  Hessel van Oorschot from the Netherlands who's company Tribe of Noise bought the site after it was shut down a few years ago. We talk about his plans for the relaunch of this site. But we also talk about the future of art and music on the internet. How different organizations like Coil and Grant for the Web are trying to find ways to help creators, artists, and musicians build their work outside of an ad-based revenue model. This conversation isn't just for musicians it's a discussion about what the future of art on the web could be and what some of these organizations are trying right now.
