I am just a guy, who is trying to do what I love. I’m 26 (at the time of writing this) and I live in NC. I’ve just recently figured out what I want to do with my life (career wise). I want to be an animator and have my very own cartoon series. I have had no schooling for animation but i have tought myself quite a bit. I am currently in the process of trying (slowly) to get a degree in graphic design.
All of my life i’ve wanted to do someting big. I just didn’t know what then. Now i do. This blog is going to be basically a journal of my ventures into getting my cartoons seen by the world. Right now, i have no clue how to do it. I will learn. I am determined. Hopefully after I learn, i can share my experience with others who want to follow the same path i have taken. Hopefully i can inspire them in some way. Or, they can learn from my mistakes.
I am a very adventurous person. I like to take chances and risk. I just recently completed a 4 month cross country trip on my bicycle with my girlfriend. (http://project-live.org that’s my website for it.) that was the most exciting thing i’ve ever done, but hopefully i will do something even more exciting in the future. Now i’m back on track, I think. And i’m working on getting some cartoons complete and getting them out there. Its hard work, but i’m trying to venture out there and accomplish something!
To do my cartoons i use Adobe or Macromedia Flash. It’s the only program i’ve used so far. I want to get into using Toonboom software but i’m broke. So maybe i can make some money off of my cartoons and do a little upgrade. Flash does what i need it to do though. I’ve been very happy with it so far. Flash was given to me by a friend before i knew anything about animation. Once i figured out how to use it, i quickly fell in love with animation. I just love watching my characters come to life.
