Big House Blues - Spumco - "The Beeg Sleep!"

My whole TV system is geared to "pose to pose" animation. We draw the layout poses at Spumco, then ship them to overseas studios for them to connect the poses.
When I do animation myself, my more natural tendency is to go straight ahead, or if there are poses in the layouts-to sail right past them.
I don't have the patience to draw a lot of inbetweens that look very close to the keys, so I draw all the inbetweens for fun - even if you don't see them all in the actual animation, it's more fun for me.
It alleviates the boredom (for me) of doing traditional conservative animation.
I just like doing funny drawings.
