Tip of the Quill: A Journal
Welcome to Brackenwood.

I spent a ton of time this morning looking for good examples of original creative work being published online (instead of merely posting clips from existing anime DVDs) and, courtesy of Aaron Simpson’s Top 10 Most Influential Online Flast Shorts, I stumbled across Adam Phillips’ Brackenwood, which is a series of short, creepy-fun animations perfect for this time of year. The guy’s work is inspiring, even when you consider that he’s an ex-Disney animator. Watching this guy push the limits of Flash cel animation reminds me of what Frakn Espinosa has been drilling into our heads this semester – observe how everything in a character adds up to the sum total of its, well, character – especially the walks and subtle gestures. Very cool stuff.
