Man's True Sense (an adaptation)

Had some transparencies I found from what looks to be an anthropology text book. Cut em up and animated them. The link to watch at youtube is:
I was originally going to shoot this on an actual overhead projector, but I just got the idea over the weekend and there is no projector to be found.

Litigator Tears (a guide to understanding interest rates)

The book cover is from the nineteen fifties and is about Stonewall Jackson. The pages are from a book published in the nineteen thirties, giving them a nice yellowish brown hue. The typeface was inspired by the style on the cover of the Ry Cooder album Paradise and Lunch. Sadly, it was too big for the scanner.

Night Time In Belarus (a nightmare)

These pages are from a book published in the nineteen thirties. Typeface and artwork inspired by the Burroughs book: Cities of the Red Night. The painting Triumph of the Dead by Pieter Brueghel (The Elder) is on the cover of the book and looks alot like the topography and landscape that has been in some nightmares of mine.

The Literanicon 6 (a useless invention)

I just found out last night that Herman Melville's Billy Budd, is in the public domain, along with all of Poe's stories. At about this same time, I decided I wanted to do an animation on the pages of a paperback book. The pages are already laid out, numbered in order for you! So i invented the Literanicon 6, a contraption that resembles a magnifying glass atop a solid state organ. It animates a very abridged version of the book you insert into it. However, the book is then permanently drawn on after that. But it will be helpful for book reports and such.

Some new images from "Deadly Vid-Heads"

An animation I am currently working on. It will be a combination of under the camera-cut out animation and scanned in illustrations compiled and animated in After Effects and such.
