And yes, I'm finally on Twitter. Follow me. I'm JSteveYork there (clicking on the previous link will take you straight to my profile page.) Eventually I'm getting No. 1 his own account for Minions-related-business, but one thing at a time.
Still: We're everywhere! We're everywhere!
Yes, this cartoon recycles an image (in higher resolution this time) of one of our very earliest cartoons. #12 to be exact. I don't apologize for it though. First, it was a long time ago. Second, I love this shot with the herd of hungry T-Rexes. Third, that initial cartoon always bothered me.
I mean, what was going on there? Was No. 1 rescuing the Newbie, or was he actually lowering him to be dinosaur food? The latter just didn't seem in-character for No. 1, and the cartoon can be read either way. So consider this cartoon to take place a fraction of a second later, settling the question once and for all. No. 1 takes care of his Minion charges, even when (frequently) he's rescuing them from their own stupidity!
The great sort and reorganization continues over here. I'm hoping to come back to the minions fully charged and ready to go. I've found props, costumes and figures I'd forgotten I had. Some of the bits and pieces I've located have also inspired me to create a few new props to use in future cartoons. For instance, I made some new chemistry equipment that will be showing up in mad-science labs in future cartoons, some free-weights to go with other sports and gym equipment I've long had but not assembled in one place, a lie-detector-type gizmo based on an existing generic "tech" prop, and an IV stand to go with the medical equipment I've managed to finally collect together in one box.
Doctor Head-in-a-Jar is also getting a major upgrade that I'll be finishing just as soon as the fricking weather clears up enough here for me to go out and do some spray painting. (The weather here has been unseasonably awful. I blame the Forces of Good. Or possibly Canada, which scared much of winter into temporary retreat with their cursed Olympics. Well, it's baaaaack!)
I've still got a few more weeks of cartoons before I have to go back into production. I should be read, if not finished with the sorting.
Anyway, see you guys next week!
