Wow, that was a lot of work!! I spent the entirety of the Memorial Day weekend animating and coloring. No barbecues or picnics with family/friends. Just work. Work work work work work!!
Great progress has been made so far on this animation, and with less than 8 days to go, I’m confident I’ll hit my self-imposed deadlines.

I was THIS CLOSE to giving up on the 11 Second Club challenge this month. Couldn’t get my concept to flow smoothly within the audio. After thirteen days of struggling, it was high time to doodie or get off the pot!
On the first day of each month, I go into a subdued state of anxiety because that’s when the 11 Second Club releases a new audio clip.
A handful of “throw-away” concepts hit me in the first hour or two, usually of the cliched variety, and then I spend the next 7-10 days in mental anguish as the audio bangs around in my head and I realize time is swiftly vanishing and all I have is a blank page.
This concept hit me late in the month and I think it’s quite unconventional. Potentially offensive. But I was raised in the Catholic Church so I feel perfectly justified in passing my general disappointments, misery and offensiveness on to you. 🙂
I wasn’t going to enter this month. Too much other shit to do. But look, I love animating and drawing and creating stories. And I love pursuing my passion. Time is finite, friends. The opportunity is right now! Get out of your own way and chase that dream!!
