Just had to post.

Found this pic in a 50's ad book. I have no clue where it came from. Jellystone park maybe? Looked really cool so I just had to share it witcha. If you have a clue where this was taken, post a comment to let me know.

Someone in the comments section asked why there weren't any African Americans in the Flintstones world. Within my mental log of cartoon imagery I distinctly remember seeing something of this nature, then I had to track it down to share with you all. I present to you the "BLACKSTONES" (and I thought the first photo was bizarre)

Daft Punk Fan Video

I've been jamming to a lot of Daft Punk to keep me awake in the wee hours of the night as I work on freelance gigs. I came across this which I thought was really clever, not to mention difficult. At first it seems dumb and boring, but watch it as the video progresses.

Daft also have an animated movie in anime style based off of their music. No dialogue whatsoever. Worth checking out. FUNKY.

Much similar to the Animatrix, DC has taken the anime approach to a series of Batman short films coming out direct to DVD summer 2008. Bruce Timm is involved as directer as well as anime studios such as Studio 4c (Tekon Kinkreet), Madhouse, and Production IG (Ghost in the shell). Even though I'm a big Marvel fan, I am anxiously looking forward to seeing this film. I hope you enjoy this sneak peek I found on youtube.

48 frames of YO! LOVE

Find more videos like this on Channel Frederator RAW

Here's the short piece of animation I did for the 48 frames of love contest. It features my main character Yin that I created years ago when I started to get into yo yo-ing and our cat Lilly. Lilly the Cat falls in love as Yin woo's her with his heartwarming yo yo trick for valentines day.

Oh, and if you've ever wondered how Yo Yo's are made, check out this cool clip I found of the YoYo factory in Arizona. Edited to the tune of the Chemical Brothers (I love this song)

...And yes, the YoYo really does float.

There were a lot of great submissions to the GIJOE Throwback Thursday contest. I had Madball artist Jim Groman Judge the artwork since he donated some of the prize winnings and use to work @ Hasbro toys. He had a tough job choosing amongst the many amazing entries. It wasn't easy folks. HERE ARE THE WINNERS!

The grand prize winner is Robb Mommaerts!

And the 2nd place winner is Kevin Evans!

Jim also had 2 honorable mentions for Jim Mehsling who was 1st to answer the call of duty and uploaded not one but five entries, and Hasdrubal who entered 7 3D pieces. A hearty YO JOE! goes out to these 2 soldiers.

A BIG BIG thanks to all who entered and made this contest a success. Keep your eyes pealed here and on Channel Frederator for future Throwback contests. If you have any ideas for future contests subjects please feel free to share them in the comments section below.
