I've not been posting that much recently as I've spent my time working on an animated version of some books I wrote and illustrated.
You may have seen a test a did in Flash last week.
I bailed on it and returned to the sweet, logical bosom of After Effects.
Here are some screen grabs.

I refer to our upstairs neighbours (who I have never met) as Big Elephant and Little Elephant, due to the noises they make crashing about during the day.
Tonight I could hear them shagging while I worked on some animation (which I why I've not posted much recently).
I wrote this poem in honor of the occasion.
I can hear our upstairs neighbours,
Partaking of a shag.
I can hear the windows rattle,
And see the ceiling start to sag.
Two elephants, I joke they are
(I can see the ceiling's sunk).
Such weight and noise and trumpeting.
And no doubt, quite a trunk.
The wailing has abated.
Two exhausted pachyderm.
A dust bath on the Serengeti,
To wash away the sperm.

Well you'd hardly call it brilliant, but here's the first successful finished thing I've done in Flash - the most unintuitive program in the world.
Hopefully in the future I'll be able to manage something a little nicer than this.
But here you go.
A really big thanks to Simona for the tutorial, and to Paul for asking her for me.

Again strolling through Youtube I spotted this little clip of an aeroplane flying over my suburb in Melbourne - Moorabbin.
This is shot within minutes of my childhood home - you can probably see the house.
Also - you can watch and listen to comedy legends Rampaging Roy Slaven And HG Nelson commentate the 2000 Sydney Olympics gymnastics.
