Interested?

Interested!? You bet! I've always wondered about that!

Matt Greenwood said...

I'm interested in any posts on construction you have in mind.

Bruce said...

Hmmm, looks like I'm the only one who is interested.

With time and effort, it would be a wonderful read from you, as usual.

Is that enough to encourage you?

I'm with Matt. Any posts you wanna do on construction will be ecstatically pored over.

Hey John,

this is a random question about Ren & Stimpy. As a kid I only had access to a VHS tape that had recorded episodes from The Ren and Stimpy marathon that was on MTV...I think.

Anyways, as a kid I distinctly rembember these two hilarious things in "Big Baby Scam".
1) the ultra close-up of Ren getting his face rubbed against the dad's facial stubble.
2) when the dad hands Ren and Stimpy to Grandpa in the bathtab, he starts whistling to them in a really awkward and creepy way.

These two scenes are not on the DVD! How come so?

I'd be curious to see what your take on it is. But finish the double bounce thing first.

As much Milt Gross stuff we can get and you can supply, please give it.
Simply funny stuff.

Off topic but, I was reminded of you and your art when designing/carving this pumpkin. Behold, Spumpkticus, the Kirk Douglas-O-Lantern!

I'd be very curious to see that construction. Adapting works not designed for animation can often be very hit and miss and I'd love to see your take on it.

JoJo said...

Constructing Milt Gross? I know his later stuff was constructed, but his early stuff?

This'll be interesting for sure. I can't wait!

katzenjammer studios said...

Interested on both accounts!

If you're looking for popular topics, a while back you showed interest in doing a post about your theories on eyes. I still wanna see that!

Your lessons are very good, John. Between reading your theories and reading Preston Blair, I think I'm improving my 2D animation skills. Keep posting lessons

If you type this link into the address bar, you'll find both of the two Milt Gross MGM cartoons, along with some other clips (there's even a Gross comic) http://klangley.blogspot.com/search?q=Milt+Gross
