Viva la 80s!

To get out of my funk, I made a cute 80's style, SIGGRAPH / Beyond the Mind's Eye animation:

One question- why must YouTube make all by beautifully detailed work look like crap?

I went to a SIGGRAPH in the 90s and it was quite like that!

The 4 chords I made with a synthesizer & looped. The drums are from a freeware drum-loop program, HammerHead Rhythm Station, which you can get at

Cool stuff Tony--thanks for sharing. Do you remember the early ninties series "Reboot"? I thought that ws some of the best computer animation ever, and still love it today.

Because youtube optimizes to save bandwidth.
Why are you oinking at your nieces and nephews?
What is a SIGGRAPH?
Wait a minute! You're related to French Toast Girl? Her art is fantastic! Please tell her I am sorry about Spackle.

Steve- Reboot was cool. That was when Lightwave was all the rage.

Robin- French Toast Girl is my older sister, Elena. She's the one who got me into Illustration Friday in the first place. She's a good person with a huge heart who only wants to mentor and see other artists prosper. I love her. (We also have a little sister, Mary, who- although a wonderful poet- is not the attention whore I am (and ergo, blogless)

When I IM people, it makes a nice loud, sharp OINK on their computers.

We all mourn Spackle.

Robin- scroll my posts down to "3 & 1/2 Years..." and see if you can pick out which one she is!
