New cartoon!

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

It’s a new cartoon! This is the title sequence for a new character, Sleeping Bag Bear. Ideally he’ll have real adventures in the future, but for now we’re all just getting acquainted. I started this project shortly after wrapping the Google video, in order to continue along my learning curve. Didn’t have a Cintiq for this one (which was how I animated the last one) and any one who’s followed this website for a while knows I never mastered drawing with my old-school tablet. But hey, it was just an exercise, and I’m happy with how it turned out. Much of its success is owed to the music, which was composed and recorded just for this cartoon by the wildly talented Caroline Belk. (If you’re in or near Portland, catch her playing a rooftop house show on August 19th!)
