Introducing: Life In The Analog Age

I'm happy to announce that I'm launching my new project today.

I've been working on it for some time now, it's called Life In The Analog Age. Check out the first promo:



It's an series of all ages shorts and strips all about my growing up before the internets in Pennsylvania. Don't get me wrong, I love the web, but times were really different back then, especially for me.

I really wanted to go in a completely different direction than Big Pants. They are stories all based on real events, all told straight from the heart. Even artistically, I limited the palette and that freed up the time to draw more and above all, no reuse.

I started really pouring over old pictures and albums and started to become really inspired and nostalgic. The actual color schemes came from them, like this one of my biological dad and I:

Here's the very first strip/inking test:

I kept everything except for the pink, it really wasn't working for me.

It's a really hard thing to try to really illustrate the way you felt then. The strips are really interpretive, but with the shorts, I can get a lot closer when writing the music, and especially the timing.

So, there are going to be a lot of strips and cartoons coming your way on lifeintheanalogage.com, make sure you subscribe to the rss feed or the youtube channel.

I hope you guys like it as much as I love doing it. Please tell me what you think, I can take it--it's good for me.

Suddenly, I feel like curling up in front of the fire pit & having a nice cup of warm butter milk.

Oh my. There's a ton of relatable stuff going on here. Love it all down to the color scheme.

Maybe more than anything I like your mindset: "Interact with art it makes the world better"

So often I find myself enjoying the process of art and animation and looking forward to people's reaction/interpretation. I NEED that feedback. I NEED inspiration-both ways. And sometimes, it's like pulling teeth.

Anyway, if not for you, I almost would have entirely forgot about Freezy Freakies.

My Mystical Photography The word photography comes from two ancient Greek words: photo, for "light," and graph, for "drawing." "Drawing with light" is a way of describing photography. When a photograph is made, light or some other form of radiant energy, such as X rays, is used to record a picture of an object or scene on a light-sensitive surface.
