Life After Myth

LIFE AFTER MYTH - trailer from Whit Hertford on Vimeo.

As reported by Jeaux Janovsky and Julia Vickerman, the trailer we produced at PUNY for Whit Hertford's cartoon LIFE AFTER MYTH is available to watch online. I painted the backgrounds for the trailer, Jeaux provided the character designs, and Julia produced and animated on it. Whit created and wrote it. Animated by my fellow animators at PUNY.
From the LIFE AFTER MYTH Tumblr...

I think it turned out really nice, and I wish Whit luck with it!

Little Gnomes

I had a lot of fun drawing this, and a lot of fun going out in the woods to take the photo. I also stumbled upon this little Bold Jumping Spider (Phidippus audax), he was pretty funny. I love jumping spiders. He kept attacking the camera, jumping at the lens. Fearless little guy. I got him right before he hopped:

Acting tough. I had a big female Phidippus audax as a pet for a few weeks a couple years ago. She took down crickets bigger than her...

And then, THIS happened...

Couldn't ask for anything cooler. I let em go outside to terrorize some aphids or something.

Anyway, I'll probably be making some more gnome pictures, hope you dig em. I like this one enough; I think they can be a lot cooler though. More to come.
