I've been interested in animation for longer than I can remember. I'm mostly self taught, and seem to be improving with everything I release. I hope to one day further my skills. I love making cartoons.

So last Saturday was Pico Day, and hey, ya know what? I ACTUALLY released FrogMan and Pico! Although it was slightly different than I had originally intended 'cause some kinda non-important things had to be cut in order to get it done ontime. So yeah, if you haven't seen it yet, I seriously reccommend watching it. I put a lot of effort into it over the last two years, and I think it turned out great, so I'd love to hear what you think about it!
Watch FrogMan and Pico HERE.
I have a ton to say about the production of FrogMan and Pico, but I'll save that for another newspost. For now I'll just talk about this last month, 'cause OH BOY was it a month.
I started off this month with about 4 or so minutes of FrogMan and Pico left to animate. I had no clue how I would pull this off without sacrificing sleep. And that's exactly what I did. For nearly every day this month I got only 6 hours of sleep, working from 10am to 4am. It was hard to pull through at first but I started getting used to it quickly.
I kept thinking this month was gonna kill me, 'cause I had to sacrifice a lot of sleep (I'm used to getting 10 hours) in order to finish this, and I was going to be moving to PA (not to go to Pico Day, that would be silly, it was in the plan though), although this has since been rescheduled to happen at the start of May. That would've been a 16 hour drive, so that would've been 16 hours I wouldn't get to work. Fortunately it was postponed though 'cause I definitely would not have finished otherwise. Still, that meant I didn't get to go to Pico Day, but hey, at least I finished my Pico Day submission!
The really bad thing that happened this month though: I got hives. Twice. I don't know why or how; some sort of allergic reaction to something I can't figure out, but the itching got so unbearable and by the time I was able to treat it with benadryl, I was getting really dizzy, I just couldn't work for a week or so. So Not only did I manage to animate 4 minutes this month, I wasn't even working the entire month! It's seriously amazing how much work somone is able to do when pressured by a really tight deadline.
So yeah, basically I'm really surprised I managed to survive through this month, and I'm really glad that FrogMan and Pico is finally done. I've been wanting it to just be done for so long and now it is. The reception seems to have been pretty good so far too. All 5 star reviews so far aside from one asshat, so woo. Also it's currently on the frontpage, so that's cool ;3
Okay, so now what's next for me? Well, I kinda signed myself up for the Continue the Song Collab for NG's 20th aniversary, so I'll be doing a part for that. I'll also be starting working on a commissioned short series for a friend soon maybe. Still haven't heard back from him. The episodes won't be as fully animated as I would normally do 'cause the amount he's paying, but hopefully you guys will still like them. Also apparently NATA starts in June this year, so I'm definitely going to make something for that. The one goal I set for myself this year was to finish a cartoon for NATA, and now that I managed to finish 4 minutes of animation in a month for FrogMan and Pico, I think I can definitely handle making something for the deadline this time. I'm ready ;3. And then after that, expect episode 6 of FMTS. I want to try to get it out on 9/1, but that might not work so well with NATA happening, heh. I would love to be able to get ep 6 and 7 out before the end of this year though. I might also make a short for Halloween.
Okay, that's it I think. Next time I make a news post I'll make a huge wall of text going in-depth on the production of FrogMan and Pico!
