“I live pretty close to Canal Street where they sell all the fake Rolex watches and when I was young I heard that the way you can tell is that the fake ones the second hand ticks off every second and the real ones move smoothly around the face. I don’t know if this is true or not and I’m not really a watch person (which makes me wonder why I start all these things off with some sort of clock) so I’ve never been interested in the knockoff Rolexs and LV bags. I did however animate the second hand smoothly instead of ticking off every second, which took all afternoon.

Animation Hotline is a series of daily 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!

I’ve noticed that I’ve had a very sensitive sense of smell lately. I don’t know what that’s all about. I’ve even started smelling things that aren’t there, a phantom smell. I have not smelled my cat’s paws though, mostly because I know it’s the same paw that scoots around in the litter box.
