The life of an animator: Beer, strippers & plants

SO in a pathetic attempt to lure more visitors to our little blog, we thought we'd post some pictures of hot chicks. And beer. And a plant!

I got Albert the Jessica Rabbit statue from Disneyland.
Albert says he can't remember where he got the Duffbeer from.
The plant we got from my sister. We called him Charlie. Doesn't he look happy?
The stripper is a birthdaycard illustration.

How to make explosions. Don't try this at home.

Hi kids. Welcome to the Anikey animation lessons. This post shows you how to create an cannonballexplosion in 6 easy keyframes steps.
Watch and learn.Step 1: A shipcrew is just standing there, chillin', talking, enjoying the view. " What'd you have for lunch today?"
Step 2: "Holy f***! I am losing my leg."
Step 3: AARGH!!
Step 5: Whoooosh.
Step 6: "My ears are buzzing dude. Hey there's your leg. Falling from the sky." Yay!

Easy as that. Now it's your turn.
