Last year, I did a speed animation entitled “The Carrot and The Rocket” about a carrot that met a rocket and aimed to go to the moon.
I’d tell you more about it, but it’s far easier to click on the video below and watch it for yourself.

The animation took three hours to make, and those three hours included the writing, voicing, music composition and recording, animating, and editing.
Since making it, I’ve had a few people ask me when I’m going to make another one.
Because children’s stories aren’t exactly my forte – you know, because every second word out of my mouth has some relationship to sex – I’ve had to think about this for a while… and I think I may have come up with something.
The new story will be based on that old idea of “being true to yourself” and will involve something called a vowelPad. I’ll be animating it with a Wacom tablet (like last time) but will probably be switching out ArtRage for Photoshop CS5 as I want to see if I can keep the type of look I have above in it.
This one will probably take a little longer than three hours to make, although the script is half written (I spent four minutes on it today) and I’ve started composing the music.
