Here is "Dead Engine", the long awaited sequel to "A Flat in B Minor". In this sequel our stranded hero is rescued by an Intergalactic Tow Truck Driver. Things do not go well for either of them.

The Audition

Is writing a children's book
and it's going to involve her "weenie dog" named Lucy.
I went off on a tangent…again. I may have to re-visit the Tiara department…
That kind of looks like a cake on her head….

Kip finds the Crystal Skull

Chris was sure the Crystal Skull vodka could only be purchased in Quebec.
Kip found it at a local LCBO.

Here's the evolution of 3 scenes in "Dead Engine"…Hoping to release this massive short sometime in the next 6 weeks.  The first pass is the storyboard cut into the animatic. The second pass is the first go at 2D mixed with 3D. The Third pass is pretty close to final with the design 'hammered' out and the atmosphere added to the surface of the planet. Brian Schlachta is an amazing 3D animator. Check out the reflection in the windshield of the small craft. Kip handled the music on "A Flat in B Minor" and is arranging the music for this short as well.

A Flat in B Minor

A little over three years ago Brian Schlachta, Kip Hardy and myself produced "A Flat in B Minor" and submitted it to several Animation Festivals around the world. It eventually played in six festivals up and down the west coast from Los Angeles to Anchorage, Alaska. We're coming down the home stretch on the sequel. We're hoping to have it completed sometime this spring.


This one's for you Steve!

Inverted Icicles

ok….I mounted my camera (with a zoom lens)
on a tripod in our kitchen, opened the kitchen window and 
took some shots of dripping icicles! …The shots looked kind of normal until
I flipped some of them upside down. (I had on my one was else was home)

Iron Man…The Real Beginning

I illustrated my interpretation of Iron Man's beginning
...according to RJ Silver. You'll have to scroll down the 
page of this link to find Iron Man.

Broomball on the Ottawa River

I caught a slice of heaven on my camera yesterday. 
A mini-BroomBall match was played out
on the Ottawa River near Luskville. What a blast!

The Web

It's one of those days…
Gotta go out and get some fresh air.

Your Dangling What?

I stand corrected…english majors would not
be caught dangling participles...
 It was, however, inspired by
 Hot Writing Tips From Penelope.

Same blog time….Same blog channel…
just a different blog link.
 The 'mytwodworld' thing is a bit too cryptic.
Hopefully it's not too much of a speed bump.

I'm in the process of switching my blog from 
'mytwodworld' to this one. I'm hoping it will
be a bit easier to find.
