I made the mistake of letting some of the dumb jocks in my gym see my sketchbook. They then proceeded to say that it looked like the kind of thing a serial killer would keep, and repeatedly told me never to show it to anyone. [Yeah, heaven forbid I meet anyone in this third world shithole that I can actually relate to.]

The irony was a) I never would have shown it to them if they hadn't asked, and b) there's nothing in my sketchbook as extreme as this shirt, which I was wearing at the time.

Get the wrong idea about me? No, people might get the exact right idea.

Here's a new animation piece I've been working on. I'm trying to get back into doing After Effects regularly. I haven't done any animation since the last Chodega piece that went up last year. I've been working on this since the end of March; I probably could have done it in a few weeks, but my animation skills are rusty, and my attention kept getting pulled away by my metal blog and podcast.

This piece was based on a recent train sketch. I was thinking of a burger and fries, except instead of a burger it was this weird burnt mutant guy, and instead of fries it was a pile of worms. Then the mutant guy gets impaled by a kebab stick. The animation kind of directed itself.

I'm hoping to do a new animation every month from now on. Right now I'm drawing a blank as to what to do next, but no doubt it will be just as weird and gross. I realized while I was watching the finished video for the 1000th time that I'd probably be in a pretty good place career-wise if I wasn't pathologically hell-bent on alienating the "right" people and getting acclaim from the "wrong" people. All I know is when I'm gone I'd rather be hanging out with George Carlin than Steve Jobs.
