Happy 2011!!

With 2010 in the books it's time to come up with a new New Year's Resolution. I've put a lot of thought into this. I had to consider what's realistic as well as what will push me to learn. My answer!?!?

An Animation A Week!

Yes. A little crazy, but I'm not limiting myself here. It can be a flip book on a post-it pad or some stop motion or especially Flash animation. My goal is to get better at animation as a whole. However do not expect to see anything work relate or anything "CG" for that matter(even though Flash is technically Computer Generated, but that's a whole other debate for another time). There is no frame limit or mandatory subject matter. I'm hoping to leave this open and see where I go. Wish me luck. Oh... Here's the first week's animation:



Update: Embedded YouTube Video for higher resolution.

Thanks for the support everyone.
Raquel, feel free to join in. I'd love to have the company! You should be able to see the animation now. I've embedded a youtube link.
Morgan, thanks for the link. That guy is sick! I don't think I could manage an animation a day.
Cheers.
