"Problems"




The newest (and probably most practical) CG cartoon idea. If you don't get it, I don't blame you :).... I'm still trying to sort out the basic plot: just how all the characters react differently to it.

Cat Cafe

I know, I know; the Bubble Hub's been slowing down posts. Any way, here's ANOTHER idea for a short film next year, also based on my trip to Japan.

For those who don't know what a Japanese Cat Cafe is (which doesn't involve much in the way of food, save tea or coffee of a beer) is a lounge dedicated to taking care of cats, so that denizens who can't own pets in their housing (very common in Tokyo) can spend some time with the cats at an hourly rate. The amusing thing about it, however, is that cats aren't professional creatures: their playful and affectionate when THEY wanna be.. not when YOU wanna be.


Is it narcissistic to have yourself in a cartoon?

New Maid design


Animated three of fourteen shots for the Bubble Hub test so far. On the buses though I've been trying to redesign my cafe maid: I still want the teeny-character thing, but felt the last design was a bit too close to previous work. I ended up with the sort of spy vs spy nose that I thought helped match the broadness and silliness of the business man but still managing to be all cute.

I need a few background maids, so hopeful lots of these face studies'll allow me to come up with distinctive designs while still being able to recycle the body of the original maid (to save modeling/rigging time).
