BIRDLAND, U.S.A. (44)
No joke, folks: now you can own the lovable, indelible Hubert Bird in a new set of merchandise. Mugs, shirts, stickers, everything you could want to put Hubert's face on, now you can do it. Click here to check it out!
A couple days ago I was invited to participate in Wobbly Python's Drawing Circus, a unique, fun and fast paced online game show in which two artists are given rapid fire prompts to draw, as written by the viewers. This episode was a very special one, with some changes to its usual format and some other fascinating surprises. If you've ever wanted to see me draw in real time, here's your chance. Look out for the fantastic Birdland cast drawing in the beginning!
Also, please check out Wobbly Python on Twitch, Instagram and YouTube. He's a real neat guy, stands up for the underdogs in the world of art, and has a great community about him. It was a joy and honor to get together with him, and I hope many of you do too!
As undignified as it might be to some to be a cartoonist, I am still all the while a cultured man. The fascinating thing about animation history is how deep and how far back it goes. Every day you get to learn something new, but the best things to learn about are the things that aren't very well documented. This rings especially true with almost anything that isn't American or Japanese. SuperTed, a Welsh cartoon series, is a fine example.
Hey you. Yeah, you! Are you an animator? Are you also a fan of Kirby?— Kirby (@kirbyreanimated) February 13, 2018

Check out this trailer for the upcoming Kirby Reanimated project. I've worked on one of the scenes and it's right there in front. Blink and you'll miss!
If you're an animator looking for some free work to do, as I am, you should send in an application to be part of this unique project. Even if you aren't familiar with Kirby (he is perhaps the 4th best known character in the world of video gaming) and his vast universe, you'll love the story on which we all are working, because it's all about making a cartoon. It's a goldmine of quotable scenes, delivered by some of the finest non-union voice actors, and improved upon -- or downgraded, depending on your point of view -- by a team of hundreds of animators just like me and you, each with their own vision.
