The cat's out of the bag!




So for the past six months or so I've been working, on and off, on the animated segments of an upcoming ABC news program entitled "Earth 2100". I didn't tell many people, so as not to worry them with my excessive workload (it never got in the way of my other projects, I promise!) and also as not to jinx the project. Nothing's stopping it now, however, as it airs in ABC primetime next Tuesday, June 2nd, at 9 pm (and forever after in perpetuity on the History Channel).

I was lucky enough to storyboard this endeavor, and have many of my own illustrations actually become animated through the magic of Adobe After Effects. Click on the link above to check out a preview on Yahoo News of some of the work. I was joined in this endeavor by my studiomates Joe "Disco" Infurnari, Tim "Hambone" Hamilton, and Leland "The Purv" Purvis. It's a grim little cautionary tale of what awaits us in the coming century unless we act soon to counter some of the effects of climate change. FUN STUFF! That said, it will have some very nice pictures :-)

This job disrupted my whole life.

But yes, the animation looks great!



Sigh,
