Summer Summer Summer

First of all, can I just say that I'm glad I have such talented friends? I've been having so much fun making these little animated gifs, but I probably wouldn't have thought to do so if I hadn't first seen THIS, THIS, THIS, and THIS. Go BYU Animation.


Also, I'd like to mention how much I love happy accidents. When I was playing with the gif render settings in After Effects, cool stuff like this pixelation kept happening.

I suppose this is a more faithful reproduction of the original Flash swf file, with a little added grain from the compression.

Anyway, with a bit of luck, I hope I can find more free time to keep making some of these little do-dads 'cause they're pretty fun.

Summer responsibly, everyone!



And, for interested parties, a little playlist of some summery tunes...

This has such a nice feel to it!! I grew up by a beach and miss it a lot - but this brings back the right vibe! :D
I prefer the bottom image, and I also like the subtle traceback that gives it just enough movement through the held parts to keep it alive. And lovely design as always!!

Loving the GIFs! The car chase GIF is still buzzing in my head.

Hadn't thought to do them in AE.

Oh and thanks for the link!

You are too kind sir.
Loving these gifs. You should've done "Mashed" that way. I guess there's still time for "Me and My Shadow".

hey man thanks for comment im glad you like my sketches im trying my best to improve your comment has just boosted my morale. your sketches are above and beyond anything ill ever be able to muster, how do you do it!i love your giff's esp the car chase. fish-man's quality!
i wouldn't recommend London's public transport unless you sketchbook at hand, it's the only thing that keeps me sane. Id cycle too but my puny chicken legs cant take it.
i recently watched your film, i really enjoyed your story and admired your animation style. been trying to make my own film but its been a tough ride so far.
i cant wait to see more of your work.
