Something That Moves
April 19, 2006
First off, this week in Boston, the Gold Dust Orphan's show,
"Cleopatra" opens. Both Josh (aka "Real Jason") and myself have
small roles in it. Since Saturday's performance is a matinee, I was
thinking about doing a reader gathering afterwards. Anyone who comes to
the show will get something special from me, too. More details on that
Anyway, on to other matters. My friend Erica Henderson is one of the
most amazing artists around. She's been doing professional illustration
since junior high - and it's great. She's also currently studying
animation. Last week, she asked me, "Would it be okay if I animated the
first S*P strip?"
Like I'm going to say no to THAT?!
So far, she has only the first 10 seconds done - she asked me to tell
you all it's a work in progress. She also kept the character designs of
the first strip. It's really weird and exciting to me to see the
characters moving. I've always wanted S*P animated. Maybe one day.
Oh, and yes, Davan's dialogue is kinda low sounding - that's my fault.
Anyway, here's the first ten seconds of
a moving S*P strip. It should play in QuickTime. Whee! -R
