Believe it or not, but I’m not dead yet – I’ve just been a slight bit busy lately.

There are several things I would like to mention in this short update. If you read the last post, then you know I had some computer trouble over the last couple of weeks. I’m very happy to say that I didn’t lose any of the important data on my harddrive. I was really scared that I had lost everything when it crashed, but it turns out that it was just the startup part of the harddrive that broke.

A couple of days ago I received a package from mytoons that contained a bunch of loot and a certificate saying I was the rising star winner. The shirts from mytoons are always amazing!

I haven’t been able to animate much lately due to school, work, and having the computer problems. Any time that I have spent animating has been on a random assortment of projects. Hopefully I can finish something in the near future.

One thing that I have been messing around with is a new blog. I was aiming for a more “portfolio style” blog with only animation and art and nothing else. I’m not completely happy with the way it turned out, but you can check it out at http://www.jamescreated.blogspot.com/. Feel free to leave me a comment with your opinion of it.

And finally, because I didn’t have any new animations to show, I thought I’d suggest some to watch. Check out part 1 of my friend’s animation Cer-Real 3: The Movie! It is hullarious! Also, another friend of mine started his own blog to showcase his animations. So check it out at http://incavestudios.wordpress.com/.

Hello…hello… 

 Today I felt like posting a completely random update for the sake of posting a completely random update.

Currently I have a ton of short animations I’m working on (I’m always working on way to many things at once) and a few other random things.

 I’ve got about four animations I’m working on for the mytoons bumper blastoff contest! However, only two of them are much beyond the storyboard stage. But I’ve got until the end of this month, so I should have plenty of time. Hopefully I will be able to finish one of them SOON!

Also, I am working on this two second love-mation animation thing for channel frederator’s 2 second love fest (obviously he doesn’t have much love in his life)! I only have until the 7th to finish it, so right now this is where my priories go. Amazingly however, considering that the animation is only going to be around two or three seconds long, the its turning out way better then I ever thought…the only thing I’m going to say about it is that I’m returning back to my dark side with this animation.

And finally, check out this short magic apple experiment!!

Yes, I’m cool like that!

And no, I haven’t been just sitting around these last holiday’s doing completely nothing…I should have something new uploaded online either later today or tomorrow. And also, I’ve started writing another story and it actually may end up book length. Here is a picture of the guy who dies in the prologue :p

Hey Everyone!
I currently have been working on a flash movie that’s current name is “Cellphone Project”. I’m trying out a different animation style and I think its turning pretty cool.

After randomly browsing the Internet and watching random web-cartoons…i have realized something…

“EVERYTHING I HAVE MADE IS REALLY CRAPPY!”

…okay, maybe they’re not quite that bad…but I see lots of room for improvement…

Soo….I am going to aim even higher with everything I make in the future…
