tajar

Some concept art for my senior animation thesis film, working title; The Tajar.

Its very loosely based off of a story told at camps across the US about a magical creature that lives in camp and his full of fun and folly. My tajar isn’t quite a prankster, but he does like to have lots of adventures.

These are some early concept sketches, based off the classic description in the story that the tajar is something like a leopard, something like a badger and something like a tiger. Hes changed quite a bit in the last few months and none of these is the final design. However do like them a lot.

I’m getting that calligraphy design going for the dopest band, TaJaR.
Listen for them, because they bring that good good not bad. #punkpicasso #design #tajar #bands #music #logo #art #progart #calligraphy #letters #fonts #handmadeart #afterdeath #arsdivinus #artistsoninstagram #wednesday #ihavelasagnaandacatwaitingathome

Man, remember the days when I was a youngin’ and still in school? It seems so far away now…

Anyway, heres my thesis film which I finally uploaded. You can see it in all of its nonsensical glory. I really don’t have much to say. “I’m sorry?” “What was I thinking?” “Damn, After Effects why did you have to destroy the quality?” So yeah, heres Tajar.

seriously tho bro, the amount of effort i had to put in to get these to work was obnoxious

but i totes have been doing work on my senior thesis. not nearly enough, but ITS TOTALLY A THING. this would go ten times faster if i were hanging out with my uarts frinds.

they get them creatives juices flowing

Deep in the Hundred Acre Wood….just kidding.

This was one of my absolute favorite items I’ve ever gotten. This creepy looking guys name is Tajar. He was specially made and signed by his creator (which you can see on the bottom of his left foot). Tajar’s stories began by a woman spending time in a children’s camp in the Rockies. So…as a children’s campfire tale, you’d think this guy would be like Winnie the Pooh or something right? Nope, he’s kinda of like Slenderman and The Silence (Doctor Who). According to his website Tajar is: “ something like a tiger, something like a jaguar, and something like a badger.“ He loves to dance in the moonlight, but must not be seen by the campers, because "if you see him once, you would forget what he looked like, but if you should see him twice you would forget to forget what he looked like and that would be quite fatal.” What the hell? “Don’t look at him kids! You could die!” That’s some Slenderman shit right there. 

Anyways, I still think this little guy is adorable. He was fully jointed and really soft. I believe I sold him to a woman who said she ran a Girl Scouts camp or something. I was sad to let him go but happy that he was probably going to scare the bejesus out of a bunch of little girls. 

Tajar Tales (tale #1)
FOREWORD 


Considerable interest has been aroused as to the 
proper spelling of the name of the hero of these 
stories. The careful reader will note that there is no 
official spelling, that in the nature of things there 
could not be since if the name were written twice 
alike, both author and readers might forget to forget 
what he's spelled like which would be quite fatal. 

Since no authentic picture of the Tajar is avail- 
able a species of near-Tager common to China where 
these tales are published has consented to pose on the 
cover in his place. 

AUTHOR. 
HOW THE TAJER GOT HIS TUCKS 

Once upon a time there was a Tajer, and he 
lived in a Camp, and around a Camp, and over a 
Camp, and under a Camp, and through a Camp. All 
the places that there were in a Camp, he lived in. 

But there were some Campers that came up to 
Camp; and when the Campers were in Camp, the 
Tajar stayed in his hiding place, which was some- 
where between the bottom of a tree and the top of 
the sky. For if any of the Campers saw him once, 
they forgot what he looked like; but if any of them 
ever saw him twice they forgot to forget what he 
looked like which would be quite fatal. 

But one night, when the Campers were in Camp 
and the moonlight was bright, and the Tajar was 
filled with folly, he came out of his hiding-place, and 
he danced in the moonlight, and he danced and he 
danced, and one of the Campers saw him once, and 
the Chief Camper nearly saw him twice, and almost 
forgot to forget what he looked like. 

But the Range Ranger, who ranged the ranges in 
that region, saw the Tajar dancing in the moonlight 
Then he came across the ranges, and he stood in front 
of the Tajer, and he said, 

"Tajer! Tajer!" 

And the Tajer said, " Yes, sir! " 

Then the Range Ranger said, " Tadger, Tadger, 
didn't you know that you were not allowed to come out of your hiding-place when the Campers are in Camp?" 
And the Tajer said, "Yes, sir." 

And the Range Ranger said, " Go back to your 
hiding-place; and don't let me find you doing this 
again." 

And the Tadger said, " Yes, sir," and went back 
to his hiding-place. Then the Range Ranger went 
away. 

The next time the Campers were in Camp, the 
Tadger stayed in his hiding-place. And the next 
time after that he stayed in his hiding-place. But 
the next time after that the moonlight was so bright, 
and the Tajer was so filled with folly, that he came 
from his hiding-place and danced in the moon- 
light, and he danced and danced, and one of the 
Campers saw him once, and the Chief Camper nearly 
saw him twice, and almost forgot to forget what he 
looked like. 

But the Range Ranger who ranged the ranges in 
that region, saw the Tajer dancing in the moonlight, 
and he came across the ranges, and he stood in front 
of the Tadger, and he said, 

"Tajer! Tajer!" 

And the Tajer said, " Yes, sir! " 

And the Range Ranger said, "Tajer! Tajer! 
don't you remember that I told you you were not 
allowed to dance in the moonlight when the Campers 
are in Camp?" 

And the Tajer said, " Yes, sir." 

Then the Range Ranger took the Tajer to the 
other side of the hill ; and he sat down. And he took 
out a needle and a long thread, and he put a tuck in 
the Tajer's right front leg, and he put a tuck in the 
Tajer's left front leg. But of course it was magic, 
and it didn't hurt. 

Then the Range Ranger put the Tadger back in 
his hiding-place. 

And he said, " Now your front legs are too short 
to reach, and you will have to stay in your hiding- 
place." 

And sure enough, his front legs were too short 
to reach, and he couldn't get out by himself, and he 
had to stay in his hiding-place when the Campers 
were in Camp, no matter how filled with folly he 
might be.
