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!

Greetings, Empties and Dead Dogs!

Yes, I'm a little late.  Well, technically not.  It's still Monday.  But I try to get things up by early afternoon so I can post the notices on Facebook and Twitter during the day when most people seem to be around to get them.  Well, fail on that.  Notices will go out on Tuesday.

Anyway, we're back.  This is actually a totally new shoot.  This is a totally (well, except for the head and the jar) Doctor Head-in-a-jar.  And we've gotten a long-overdue camera upgrade too.

None of which makes me entirely happy with today's cartoon.  It was rushed.  It was a fairly complex setup, and Doctor's Head-in-a-jar's new ride is tougher to shoot than I expected.  It looks much better from some angles than others, and the pose necessary for the gag precluded those angles.  Given more time, I probably could have done it better, but sometimes it doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to be done.  This was one of those times.  We'll do better next time.

Anyhow, we're back, bigger and better than ever!  (Eventually.)

See you next week!
