Here's an old after effects cartoon I did a while ago. This was also taken from one of my sketch books. I just cut the comics up in photoshop, and import them into after effects from there. The music is by a guy named Hans Reichel he plays the Daxophone.That's an instrument of his own design that operates on the same principle as the noise made by a wooden ruler being clamped to a desk and plucked, you know that vibrating sound that makes. I go tit off a CD called "Gravichords Whirlies and Pyrophones" a compilation of experimental instruments. Any way if you want to know more go to www.Daxo.com it's his site. I think he also does type design. The story for this short is much larger and the other sections are episodes in thier own right, but I just haven't gotten the gumption up to do more animation on the rest of it.

You've got a gift, Jack. Keep it up. If you can tell coherent stories with so few elements as you did, you've got half the cokeheads in Hollywood beat. Now go piss on their graves, dude. The earth is your pimento.

Hey Narthax thanks for checking out my stuff. I'm really glad you liked it. I work hard on the stuff and appreciate you commenting, it lets me know that I'm not just posting in a vacuume... I tried to follow the link through your name, Narthax, to get to your Executive BitchSlap blog but blogger says that it doesn't have you in their system even though your blog name is listed in your profile. It just shunts me to a 404 error page. Just thought you'd like to know.

Very cool! I wasn't expecting much but that was really well done. It has a definite style and mood to it and it left me wanting more. Keep at it!

Hey anon thanks for the positive feedback! When I'm done with the Darklings short I am currently working on, I will definetly be returning to the world of the ghost wars. It has a special place in my heart,(especially since all the comics are already done, and all I have to do is months o photoshop and AE work.) Until then remember "salt burns ghosts"
