hold on to your hats animation!

my friend scott messina did this wonderful Flash animation as part of his final thesis project. he took my drawing, hold on to your hats, and painstakingly went through all the Photoshop layers to get into the nitty gritty of my drawing process...essentially another person had the joy of partaking in my candy colored insanity.

he even gave the animation a nice little soundtrack with music by Moby & Kelli Starr.

Scott's project goal was to collaborate with artists and create interactive web-based pieces using Flash. see more of his art inspired goodies here.
