This cartoon was actually my first foray into animation. That 17 seconds probably took me a good month of dragging my poor brain through countless Photoshop, Illustrator and Flash tutorials. Not to mention recoding the audio, putting together the music….Whew!
I did a few more animated versions of my cartoons soon after, but, to be honest, none of them had the impact of just sitting and reading the same static cartoon. It was a worthwhile experiment, and it’s always fun to challenge myself with something new, but in the end I came to appreciate good old paper and pen cartooning even a bit more.
