Dashkin, Bob’s Burgers, Clear Vision 2 and Bitcoin
I did lots of things in 2012 and the 2013 schedule is crammed with new stuff. Here’s the last gasp before the apocalypse!
The BiteyCastle Academy 2D FX animation course is now open! The place is all warmed up with almost 140 members (update: 300), throwing back tankards of piping hot secret knowledge nectar and churning out their effects assignments.

D&D Cartoon #6 – DMG2: The Lady of Pain
This was another attempt to make something from start to finish in a single day, but it ended up taking two. It’s also the first time I used ToonBoom instead of Flash for a personal work. I used Animate Pro 2 which, back then (early 2009), was known as Digital Pro. The response to this ►►
