More Stopmotion.

Here's some more stopmotion. This is my ball test, which is the first animation assignment we had for class. The assignment was to make a ball roll in a couple different ways then do whatever you wanted. I was fairly pleased with mine.

Monster Post!

This is my Monster Post, where I'm going to be posting about a great deal of things all at once.


This first thing I am going to mention is this. My good friend Kate Farstad has recently been featured on http://www.fecalface.com two days in a row for Photo of the Day. That's pretty much awesome and I'm way happy for her. I figured this was a worthy achievement and I featured her here as well. Check her out. Grats Kate.

My next line of business is this image that I love. I felt it would be a good idea to share it with the rest of the world, since it brings me so much joy. It was done by Lou Romano, who is basically my favorite artist on blogger right now. Thanks to Mr. Romano for keeping me happy.



Now I would like to share with you something I've made recently. This is a practice piece from my stop motion class. The objective in this assignment was to convey 3 emotional changes using our sculpted heads.

A special thanks to Justin for rekindling the fire that burns beneath the Tech Deck temple. Here are the two new boards I bought last night. Pretty killer. I had no idea they made old school boards. Playing with Tech Decks makes me feel like a little kid again. It's great.



I recently scored a coupla sweet books over the past month or so. I'm a sucker for sweet books. This first ones pretty small and has this amazing wood look to it. I might make it into a sketchbook eventually, who knows. Someone should pay me to make it into a sketchbook for them. That would be grand.

I scored this next book at savers, which was pretty exciting seeing as how its my favorite shape and color. Its a pretty large book with some really nice large images in it. This one will never be made into a sketchbook. It's way too nice for that mistreatment.

The last book is my pride and joy. It's absolutely the most beautiful book I own. I stumbled upon this beauty in the MCAD library and after admiring it for a while, I finally decided to go hunting for my own. I was willing to pay at least $50 for this book and did not think that I would actually find one, but a little looking proved to be the best decision I have made in a while. I ended up finding the book for sale at http://www.powells.com/ for $6. Yes, six dollars! I was like, "Whoa! What the fuck? Why is this so cheap??!?! I can't go wrong with this one!" Seriously I couldn't go wrong. The book could be in the worst condition, but who cares? It's 6 bucks. The site said it was in "standard" condition, so I bought it. It came shortly after my purchase and I was a very jolly boy. The book turned out to be in pristine condition. I was amazed. $6 for the book of my dreams, in pristine condition. It was like my birthday. A hand written card came with the book that talked about how if this book were in production today it would cost around $450 and that any similar books in perfect condition would be under lock and key. Both the book and the hand written card had price tags that read $250. I would say that I got a steal of a deal on this one.

The last section of this Monster Post is something from a folder I have called, "0SamsStuffHeLikes". This folder houses random images I find and enjoy. I'm not really sure where I get them but they sure are great. (My apologies to the actual owners of these images. I am sorry that I am not able to credit them properly. If the need for credit is due on something tell me and I'll fix it.)

Finally!




Finally, some time to post something new I'm working on. This is the first step in the process of a bronze sculpture I am making for class. It is the wax version of my sculpture, made so I can make a mold of it to cast bronze into.
