True story. I especially like the red and yellow colors together. Jeff Scher, an awesome filmmaker, gave me the Unison Colour yellow pastel. He kept giving me things, an air purifier, some Kohinoor pastel pencils, a few Block X Pastels. But not only stuff, he gave me all sorts of information, like this special hand cleaner, and possible approaches for where to send the work, and references to other artists, and whose work I need to watch. Then he said I should try to do transfers onto rice paper from the slate. He was like a living wikipedia for animation. It was pretty awesome and inspirational.

Animation Hotline is a series of relatively often animations where I use messages left on my voicemail for content. When you get a chance please leave me a message, and honestly it’s best if you leave more than one because sometimes what you think is the perfect message might simply be impossible for me to animate in one day. This project is only as good as the messages that you leave me, so if you feel so inspired, call!
