|My animation experience comes in two flavors: the episodes I wrote for series, and the series I generated with my comics writing. They should almost be two separate galleries, but I'm diversified enough already.
Animation is a volatile business, with projects appearing and disappearing all the time. When I was first asked to do work there, it was, as it turned out, the last good year for the business in recent times. Every year since then, my friends there have said "This is a down year. Fortunately, animation is cyclical." Every year.
For a while the new avenue of webisodes (stories using Flash animation over the net) appeared, but they went away as well. I firmly believe that webisodes will succeed when a large enough populaton has broadband connections, but at this point that's just a dream. Fortunately, when it happens, Flash will also have advanced, and the result should be a lot of fun.
Meantime, I've gotten to write some characters I wouldn't have encountered in other media, and known the joys of seeing line art come to life.
