 İkiyaka (Kirpi) Operasyonu (1993)  

1993 Ağustos ayında Hakkari İkiyaka Dağlarında pkk yuvalanmasına karşı Osman Pamukoğlu liderliğinde gerçekleştirilen gayri nizami harp uygulamalarıyla desteklenmiş imha operasyonu.

Operasyon şafak sökümünde sona erdiğinde üçlü çembere alınan pkk militanlarından 400 kadarı imha edilmiştir.
operasyon gazete manşetlerine Osman Pamukoğlu’nun: “Ben Askerime Leş Toplatmam!” sözleriyle taşınmıştır.
Bu söz, Osman Pamukoğlu tarafından, kendisinden pkk leşlerini görüntülemesi için yardım isteyen gazeteciye, “analar çocuklarını buraya leş toplasınlar diye göndermiyor. onlar işlerini yapmıştır. o leşlerin de ait oldukları yer şu an bulundukları yerdir. orada çürüyecekler. resim çekmek istiyorsan yanına bir manga asker versinler, git kendin topla ve çek. ben askerime leş toplatmam” şeklinde bir beyanla manşetlere taşınmıştır.
kirpi operasyonu, 15 Ağustos 1993 gecesi gerçekleşen Yüksekova baskını ile sonuçlanmış ve Osman Pamukoğlu’nun tam bir başkaldırıydı sözlerine vesile olan olayda, Yüksekova merkezde kamu binaları dahil neredeyse tüm evlerden roketatar, havan ve bixi ile tugay yerleşkesine, askeri tesislere ve polis tesislerine ateş açılması şeklinde cereyan etmiştir.
yıllar sonra Osman Pamukoğlu “ Hiç unutmam, tam 86 namlu ağız alevi saydım ” sözleriyle pkk nın kurtarılmış bölge kalkışmasını ifade edecektir.
kirpi operasyonu, TSK’nın 1993 itibari ile uyguladığı gayri nizami harpin başlangıç noktasıdır. 



If you’ve realized that 

  1. Wang So inherited his belt from Choe Young (Faith) 
  2. the Goryeo soldiers and royal guards their armors from their future counterparts from the 14th century (Empress Ki and Faith)
  3. that YH’s harpin is the one Lee Soon gave to his beloved Jang Ok Jung after their first night together (and some 80 % of the hairpins worn in ML did appear in Jang Ok Jung Live in Love, as well);



“From Away” Animated Series Trailer!

Hey world!

Here’s a trailer for the new animated series I’m workin on, called “FROM AWAY”!

(Warning: I’m guessing this is Rated “R”. There’s some cuss words and a couple naked people in it.)

I wrote, storyboarded, animated, and edited the 13 minute pilot episode in my apartment, on my Cintiq. This trailer is made up of footage from the pilot.

I went to Calarts for Character animation when I was 18. After my second year I got called up for storyboarding bootcamp at Pixar, and survived.  After my third year I dropped out to work at Blue Sky, and somehow ended up storyboarding “Moonrise Kingdom” for Wes Anderson in NYC, after that I was writing and supervising on season one of “Clarence” at Cartoon Network. Since then I’ve worked with Genndy Tartakovsky on “Hotel Transylvania 2” and “Popeye”.

I really miss cartoons that weren’t solely aimed at kids, that were allowed to be somewhat realistic, like “King of the Hill”, or cinematic like early “Simpsons”. I produced the “From Away” pilot to try and prove that it could work, knowing that something this “low concept” or “adult” would never make it through the development process unscathed. This is not a kickstarter, I’m looking for distribution for the rest of the series. I’ve already planned out the first two seasons, and have begun boarding Episode 2.

If you want to see the full pilot and are interested in distributing the series, email me at:



Mud Flaps Flappin in the Wind - by Reggie Watts


Take’em ooo rowna road whatcha goin down baby,
it’s-a ninteen sissty-five, you aint gotchuh stereo on,
an i dont know if I can take another light on my own.

Ya putcher ding down harpin and you’re flippin it bad
and you aint got another switch sir you’re just feelin so sad
and you can tell n’nother person that she’s evernescence on-on your  growth.

And you can do whatcha do when yer doin it good
butchoo cant do what you didn’t when ya did it last week
cuz next week’s another week and if I have to remind you
then you don’t understand the basic concept of time, ya

and if you wanna do it, ya can’t
then it’s up to you because you know that you’re limited
by a plan that you’ve bn erkin on n’ berkin yer flaz
and ya put it (inhale) n’ya meanin’
and ya mud flaps flappin in the wind.


Pt. 1: Here’s a GIF of the original storyboards for the “Camp Lebanon Flood Sequence” from Moonrise Kingdom. A lot of the shots changed/ or the script was rewritten. But my boards were handed out on set, so you’ll see a lot of it sticks pretty closely. Also at this point I knew Edward Norton was cast, but Harvey Keitel hadn’t been yet… or else I would have made it look like him!

"Clarence" Head-of-Story reaction

I was Head of Story on “Clarence” from the beginning.

Obviously Skyler Page sexually assaulted a female artist at CN. Skyler’s a piece of shit, and CN should give him the boot. Emily Partridge is one bad-ass chick for standing up to a guy who a lot of people wanted to cover up for. Skyler’s asshole behavior (though not yet sexual assault) was the main reason I quit the show more than a year ago.

I can’t imagine how fans of the show are feeling right now. But the reason you like Clarence, in spite of it’s creator, is because the “creator” had very little to do with the show. Despite what it says in the credits, Skyler never wrote a single episode of Clarence. It was created by the writers (me and Spencer Rothbell) and the talented board artists (people like Charlie Gavin, Derek & Diana). We took Skyler’s idea of “a fat dumb kid” and made a character out of it. Skyler mostly “kept the couch from floating away”, and read whatever lines we gave him. There’s been enough victims of Skyler Page, don’t punish the talented crew that actually raised Clarence.

- Patrick Harpin


If ya wanna see a “spooky” Clarence episode, tune in for “Belson’s Sleepover” this Thursday night! It’s one of the last scripts I wrote for the show and I’m pretty proud of it. I borrowed a lot from “House on Haunted Hill”, and even a little “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”…
Storyboarded by Ian Wasseluk, Charlie Gavin, Derek Evanick and Diana Lafyatis!

Thursday night at 6:30/5:30c on Cartoon Network
