animation tests




Thought I'd share a couple animation tests from a project I started last year. Suffering a similar fate as many potential short films, this short will indefinitely be on hold.  It might come back to life and I have some ideas for it, but odds are by then I will have moved on from these tests, so I figure I might as well post while I don't mind looking at them....as the shelf life for liking my own work is very limited :)  Hope you enjoy!

also, starting to double post on tumblr:

Pasión Del Gallo Indomable


TONIGHT ON PASION DEL GALLO INDOMABLE.....
prepare yourself for
LOVE
JEALOUSY
REVENGE
DESPAIR


Although he only had one true love of his life....

El Gallo had two children with two others.
So the heartbreak hen (and mistress to EL GALLO) tries to stir the pot.
"well look at that, could it be...that the son of la tontita es the son of EL GALLO??"

this clearly upsets the true love, and she wants proof of their true love
"I WANT TO HAVE A CHILD WITH YOU! why is it that the others have had your children, and me??? Your love, your forever darling, I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING!!!"

So EL GALLO sings his sweet love song to her
COCK A DOODLE DOOOOO

And with that, The true love lays her eggs and proudly declares, I'm going to be a mother!

And she is overjoyed to tell her man that she is expecting.


But EL GALLO already had a couple grown children to tend to

the love child, son of heartbreak hen.


and the firstborn son, son of La Tontita, still unsure of his biological father.

EL GALLO tells the love child, that just as he never really cared for his mother, he doesn't care for him either.

and likewise, he doesn't care much for the firstborn son, but between the two, he prefers the firstborn

and therefore declares....


"MY FIRSTBORN SON. I will leave you my inheritance!"

this hits the heartbreak hen personally, for she was expecting this to go to her son, and expecting to win back the affection of EL GALLO with this love child.
"HE REJECTED ME AND NOW MY SON!!"

meanwhile back in the coop...
true love eggs find her eggs missing!
"OH MY GOSH!!! NO, no no NO NO NO NO!!! It can't be!!!!!!!"


true love hen runs to the arms (wings) of her true love, EL GALLO, 
"MY CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!! SOMEBODY STOLE MY EGGS!!! THEY STOLE MY CHILDREN!!!

and together, the two hen's went crazy.
for the sadness of losing her eggs, drove the true love crazy
and the sadness of losing her lover drove the heartbreak hen crazy.


and this craze turned into a grudge
against the firstborn son:

as they taunt him,
"YOUR PRESENCE DISGUSTS US"

but at least he has the love of his mother, 
"My poor baby boy, nobody likes you"

yep, it's hard being an unloved teenage rooster.
"it's true that nobody likes me, nobody has ever liked me, and nobody ever will!"

and he's under attack, being chased and pecked.
the firstborn son cries, "THEY WANT TO KILL ME"

and, father like son....

"HE WANTS TO KILL ME!!!!!!!!!!!

and

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(cue theme music)


WERE THEY KILLED???????????
WHAT HAPPENED TO EL GALLO?????
WAS THIS ALL AN ACCIDENT OR A PLANNED ASSASSINATION???
PLANNED TO GET THE INHERITANCE?
Do chickens have inheritances?

STAY TUNED FOR THE NEXT..............
Pasión del Gallo INDOMABLE!!!




I'm also happy to announce that I've been working on a book version of Pasión Del Gallo Indomable.  


I'll be selling the books next weekend at the alternative press expo in San Francisco.
If you live in the area hope you can make it out!
I'll also have chicken prints, and be doing live caricatures.

People I don't talk to anymore

Recently I was sorting through my things in my old bedroom at my parents house.  I found a nice box of scraps, old letters, mood rings, and trinkets from my friends from grade school.  I found this letter from my first best friend.  




She told me how we’d all be best friends forever.





forever?



I thought about all the people that pass through our lives, some just for a season.  They leave you with memories, teach you something, share in some part of the story of your life. Sometimes those people do stay with you forever, and even when they don’t maybe a little part of them does. Nowadays with the internet its not too hard to find old faces and friends and stay in touch, but it's also easy to not actually talk to people anymore. I felt inspired to start a little project to try to remedy that a bit; a journey through memory and hopefully a chance to reconnect with some good people. 

This goes out to all the people that have passed through my life and brought a smile or story :)




to all the wonderful people
and to some hazy faces of classmates forgotten




so coming soon: old school classmates, unconquered middle school romances, and neighborhood bullies. (if you're in any of my old yearbooks, consider yourself warned :) )
