I wanted to animate a teaser for our website. It's like 97% done. I just need to polish, composite and do some sound. Here's some images.

Dunno when I can promise it, but be on the look out. I'm gonna need to convert the .MOV to an .FLV. Anybody got experience with that? Anybody know of a FLV encoder that I can customize?

Man o man. This looks fantastic! ...and painful. The black eye is edible (like a grape!) Nice detail on the thumbnail, too. Can't wait to see what you have cooking when it gets moving. I'm not a pro with flv encoding. But Flash pretty much guides you through it.

Hi Chris, I really like your work and hope that this interests you and your readers.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, location, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.

I would really appreciated if you could link me.

Bob: I hadn't even thought to look into Flash's Help file. Duh! Good tip.

Ryan: Thanks dude!

Coop: I'll see what I can cook up.

Tek: Thanks! You rule!

James: It's looking like December? It'd be a great Christmas present.

Will: They're on the way, I promise. A couple more short gag films first (to work out bugs with the characters and my production process), then STORIES!

Thanks for all the cool support, guys!

Damn man...this looks really polished, it is like your a mini studio.

I've been checking out your blog everyday to see when you will post this cartoon. After seeing that amazing frog walkcycle I know i'm in for a treat.
Thanks also for your advice and encouragement on my own blog, I really appreciate it!
