HANDS DOWN THE BEST SCENE OF ANY TV SHOW EVER
Around April of last year my friend, Jamie Vickers, encouraged Ben Li and I to apply to animate on Masaaki Yuasa’s “Space Dandy” episode. Yuasa-san was apparently looking for international animators and posted about it on his Facebook wall. We turned in our reels and promptly got the gig.
I decided to only take on four shots just to feel it out and to make sure I got it all in on time.
The Carpaccio animation and shadow passes weren’t used in the final cut, but I decided to include them for this post to show what was turned in and approved. The rest of the drawings I did came through though! Very exciting to see the final animation all cleaned up, colored and cut together.
Yuasa-san was very open to us using Flash to animate our shots. The production took the final keys (genga’s), printed them out, retraced onto paper and inbetweened those drawings. It’s a pretty wild pipeline, but it totally worked. I am grateful to have experienced working under one of my most favorite directors, Masaaki Yuasa-san.
If granted the opportunity I would like to do more animations for Yuasa-san and other overseas productions in the future. For now I will continue working on my personal project that I aim to get done before the end of the year.

NASA engineers use origami as inspiration when they fold up solar panels for their trip to space. Shown here: the Miura fold. Once a piece of paper (or solar array) is all folded up, it can be completely unfolded in one smooth motion. You can read more about origami in space here, and learn how to do the Miura fold in this video:

Reading by flashlight when you’re supposed to be asleep is practically a rite of passage for kids. An adorable new children’s book celebrates that tradition.
It’s difficult to imagine New York City without the massive throngs of people, but that’s exactly what you’ll find in the work of photographer Duane Michals.
Starting in the 1960s, Duane would roam the streets of New York City in the early hours of the morning when the bustling city was remarkably quiet.
