BANGED GRAINS! GENUINE PIG!

13 April 2005

Feels good to be back in the landscape of corridors and vending machines!

The end of this stressful year is in sight! May be a little early to be calling such in april, but it's the truth. The strain that was put on my body this year was caused by a combination of the following: an endless supply of animations to be made and working 1.5 days a week. Both are crawling on their last legs now, and I let them crawl without mercy. This schoolyear only two more animations are required of me. The first of these I practically finished this weekend. Then there's the big one with the clowns which will take me halfway into may. But after that -it's over. And work? I've learned this last half year that work and school don't mix. They don't. I have an incoming heart attack to prove it. And that's why I'll be glad when my contract expires the 16th of may.

And then I'll be released! To see the sun, to feel the wind! To be in the daylight, to be free! Ahem. Excuse me. Oh sure, I'll have papers to write after that, and not to mention I'll be going on an internship this whole summer, but that's all irrelevant. I don't mind working, I mind not having enough time for it.

That said, I made a swell animation this weekend of which I'm proud of. It involves pirates. I know; I'm becoming a caricature of myself, only able to do stuff if it involves pirates, clowns or zombies. I should combine the three and make the ultimate figure of idolization. Err, that is... The animation, right. It's -again- for television, the quizshow I've been animating for for quite some time now, freelance via school. This time I got a question about pirates to animate. I thought of an interesting concept that's literally too absurd to explain. Maybe if you're lucky I'll upload it for your pleasure this week or the next. If it appears I've forgotten about it, which is possible, just send me a reminder through email. To give you a tip of the veil: it involves pirates. And lots of lightning. And stabbing ends of brushes. And more lightning.

It does not however involve zombies, which is a flaw. I must now be beaten with a stick. Quite possibly wearing a burlap bag and meathelmet.
