Hi hi hi!

I’ve been busy as a bee on crack getting the first episode of NOTLO all ready to send out to the world! I’m aiming for September 7th. FINALLY a month later, I’ve got my funds from Indiegogo, and now I can actually start creating the stuff people bought and begin sending it out soon, but before I do, does anyone want to get a t-shirt before I put the order in? They are $35, American Apparel, sizes small to XL. If you want one just shoot me an email, you can find it on my website.

Also, Joseph Gordon-Levitt apparently likes my art enough to sell it in the hitRECord store! I was pretty excited to see that!! So if you want a cool tote bag with robots on it, you can get one right HERE! They are only $15 bucks.

That’s all for today, just working my little brain out onto the pavement.

Much love,

Rewfoe

Heyyyyyy friend, how are you? yes you!

This week’s been rough and unproductive, I can’t focus on anything and I’m super tired…however I’m not going to receive even a tiny bit of sympathy from any one of you because I’m suffering from mad jet-lag coming back from my week in Japan. Lotta fun I gotta say! My second time going but coming back is just brutal. It was kind of a sudden trip, and I’ve since had to yet again push back the deadline for NOTLO ep.1.

Still working more on NOTLO, but I’m getting a lot more work these days which is slowing the progress on that down, but that’s a good thing! I just wish I wasn’t so completely exhausted with the feeling of being punched repeatedly by a gorilla in the face. But I still hope to get that episode out soon!!

Speaking of NOTLO, above you can see the photos of the folks who purchased shirts and such. Thanks to those guys who sent in pics of the merchandise! :)

I’m thinking of doing a second run of these shirts, so hit me up if you want one.

Moving right along, Yuliya and I are still trying to rally votes for our film Delightful Devices for the Toronto Urban Film Festival. If you haven’t voted already go have a look please. It’s been super awesome having our film up on the TTC again - though I was out of the country when it was showing but I saw it last time and that was neat.

I think that’s all for today, gonna try to get more stuff done today! Gonna try to wake up officially!!!

Howdy friends!

Lots of exciting stuff happened this week!

Progress is coming along with NOTLO (Night of the Living Obsolete, the cartoon about Robot Zombies! And other stupid things)

After re-doing most of my roughs, I’m almost ready to begin the animatic and final backgrounds! There has been quite a few set backs with audio and actually getting the money out of indiegogo,  but it appears that I’m finally overcoming those setbacks and moving forward!

This test you see is the first test using the rig plug in (Thank you kindly Hector Herrera for opening my eyes to such a thing!) This will make my life about 4000 times simpler, faster and with better results! I’ve still got to work a few kinks out but it looks like it’s going to be quite useful. Poor Gamebot still doesn’t have any hands, but he will.

The rig essentially puts bones into the character, so instead of moving on piece at a time, you can just grab a foot and move the entire leg from there. It also work the other way around where you can just grab the pelvis and drag it down while the feet stay grounded. I watched the tutorial from this guy, who links to the program that you can download and implement into any version of After Effects for free. If you’re an After Effects user, I strongly recommend it, it’s super easy to use and easy to install and stuff. Take it from me - I am a solid moron when it comes to figuring out ANYTHING on the computer, but even I was able to figure this out.

Lastly, my tumblr is just one follower away from the big 300! I can’t wait to do my next doodle inspired by my followers names! (And I switched back to the old theme, the new one had too much clutter everywhere.)

Lot’s of really amazing things on the horizon, looking forward to this final month of real summer and I’m going to really make the best of every day! Hope you guys do too.

Hey guys! Pretty exciting news this week! I’ve finished up all the final versions of the characters and I’m now putting them through animation tests to see what they can do! This here is Zarah kicking in the head of a harmless adorable Bird-like Robot Zombie.

We’ve also reached 1/7th of our goal! Yes, we’ve hit the 1K mark! Pretty exciting to know this project can actually afford a few things, like voice recording and an original soundtrack, but let’s keep moving forward and reach that goal! We’ve got 14 days left, let’s make it count! If you have some extra cash floating around, why not get a rad-tad t-shirt, or better yet, BE a robot zombie victim!

Another little spoiler for NOTLO!

This is a still from the opening sequence for the first episode. It takes place in Obie-City, (get it? pun intended!) It’s a small town where robots have taken the lead to do… well, everything for people; leaving them in a state of perpetual obesity.

I can’t wait to show you the full cartoon when I complete that first episode!! Progress is still going well, I’ve had a few actual paid jobs here and there so I haven’t been moving with the sheer force and speed that I would have liked on this BUT I do love money and I’ll never say no to a paid job.

Thanks for looking over this way!

Clint in his van with his sad face on. Just a tiny update from NOTLO. I don’t want to give away too much of what I’ve been working on. But it’s nice to show you a little something every now and again.
