New Year's Baby Stories for Old People

Baby story #1.

My brother recently moved into a new apartment. He went to the Seattle Ikea, and said there was a wee child pushing a cart. The wee child was transporting a load in his pants while pushing a cart and there was no way around him. My brother was forced to walk slowly behind the small child. Now he has artwork for his new apartment. I hope it goes in the bathroom.

Baby story #2. (ha ha.... #2....)
Last night, this wee little one was in the seat behind me. He had three other brothers, none that had volume control. His parents were with them, and I know it must be hard to raise alot of boys at once, but the parents had no noise control either. This drawing isn't exaggerated enough.
He was shrieking "PURPLE!", "CRACKAHS!", and many other words for the two hour flight. Other passengers had the stewardess bring ear plugs. Drawing the monster baby was better for me. I've never been on a flight were people clapped when they got off. The weird part of the story was that Chris Kattan was sitting one seat away from me on the flight. I didn't realize it was him until my friend picked me up from the airport and said "Hey, that's Chris Kattan." Maybe he will use this demon baby in a future skit. I hope so, that family was insane.

Baby Story #3.
A baby I know is turning one tonight! She is a good baby too! Happy Birthday Sweet Pea! Don't marry these babies in the future!

Christmas Eve in Bunny Town

It is that time of the year, again, where one gets to travel through airports hopeful that eventually they'll make it to their destination. Most of the time, the flight from Seatac to the eastside of the state gets cancelled, and I get to live there until someone picks me up. But not this year! This year will be different!
Hooray for little brothers getting jobs in Seattle! YAY!!
Here are some pre Christmas photos, and some photos from my work. OOoo animation mysteries....

Here is "Randy the Hip Hop Bear". I saw him at the Mervyn's store in Burbank. He is horrible.

Camera phone is poopy. It will be replaced soon.

My brain broke itself.

I'm going to have the stuff I am supposed to be doing finished soon, promise. My work got extended a few more weeks, which is good for me at least.

If you hate anime, maybe don't bother clicking on the links.
Video Time
(Thanks to Jeff Chuang for letting me know about this.)
People have been compiling animation made by specific artists and uploading them to youtube. People have been IDing scenes with their Disney and Warner animators for years. I just thought it was interesting that there are compilations of some of the
Gainax/Ghibli/Madhouse/etc. animators. Search for "MAD", and that will bring up tons of stuff, although not all of the videos seem to be specific to one animator.
There is alot of kicking and punching.
Hiroyuki Imaishi animation reel
"Namco X Capcom" op by Production I.G.
I think the guy above might have directed this, but I can't find any confirmation of that.

Tetsuya Nishio reel

...and here is some stuff that's just cool.
Skateboard + Balloons
Persian Kitten Army
"Merbabies" is creepy, and cute. I used to watch it alot.
"Pick up all the trash, put it in the bag, BUMP! BUMP!"

Little random post-its from the last few weeks. Drawing hasn't been working lately, these crude little warm ups help a little.
(fixed: Weird they were showing up for a couple of days and blogger somehow lost them.)
