Kazuyoshi Yaginuma work for his short “In the Evening of a Moonlit Night”
Around April of last year my friend, Jamie Vickers, encouraged Ben Li and I to apply to animate on Masaaki Yuasa’s “Space Dandy” episode. Yuasa-san was apparently looking for international animators and posted about it on his Facebook wall. We turned in our reels and promptly got the gig.
I decided to only take on four shots just to feel it out and to make sure I got it all in on time.
The Carpaccio animation and shadow passes weren’t used in the final cut, but I decided to include them for this post to show what was turned in and approved. The rest of the drawings I did came through though! Very exciting to see the final animation all cleaned up, colored and cut together.
Yuasa-san was very open to us using Flash to animate our shots. The production took the final keys (genga’s), printed them out, retraced onto paper and inbetweened those drawings. It’s a pretty wild pipeline, but it totally worked. I am grateful to have experienced working under one of my most favorite directors, Masaaki Yuasa-san.
If granted the opportunity I would like to do more animations for Yuasa-san and other overseas productions in the future. For now I will continue working on my personal project that I aim to get done before the end of the year.
Ep 3 Season 2
"Slow and Steady Wins the Race, Baby!"
Randall Rosenthal born 1947 in NY has become famous creating what appears to be a cardboard box stuffed to the brim with wads of cash. In reality, both the box and the cash are carved out of wood and hand painted to jaw-dropping, lifelike precision by the artist. Though Rosenthal’s portfolio of work also includes wood recreated as newspapers, baseball cards, binders, books and more, it is his sculptures of money that have particularly captured the public’s eye.
"Half the time is spent on carving and half is spent on painting, they’re the exact opposite processes. I start with a block of wood and it’s totally reductive in that I take away wood until I get what I want.
The carving is a high-wire act because there’s no room for error and I don’t plan it out, the painting is the opposite. You can paint on the paint forever, until you get what you like.” (by Katie Kindelan)
Some pages, sketches and illustration of Goligo.
Still working on the second issue.
