Hi, guys.  I've been prowling around the forum for over a decade, but I rarely post any of the stuff I'm working on.  I think I generally keep things a little too close to the chest, so I'd like to be more open about the things I make.

This is a short that I made last year as I was packing to move across the country.

It's not really suitable for children, I guess.

The animation wasn't really a priority (and neither was the fabrication, in some sense), but the timing and the tone and the "screen design" were very important to me.

Great work! I watched BAR too. 

I imagine you have a lot more work tucked away. I'd be interested to learn how you came to be interested in this type of dark humor. The tone in both are spot on. 

Thank you again, Adam!  In terms of actual finished projects, I have very little tucked away, and even less that I would ever show to anyone.  I don't know that I could do very good analysis of my own sense of humor, but I'm glad you liked them.

Bravo! I love it

Thank you!

Nicely done.  But now I'm traumatized.  

That was brilliant! Really made me laugh,really well animated and great sound effects too! Just wondering,how did you make the fan?  

Oh whoops.  Been a while since I signed in.  It's just made from brass tubes and wire mostly.

This might give you a better sense, but I'm bad at progress pictures: https://www.jonhartmanart.com/single-post/2017/07/24/Howdy-More-Lea...

Happy to answer any specific questions if you have any.
