January 17th, 2007: My friend Posterchild made a really cool stencil animation, called "The Departed Astronaut". He did it by stenciling the frames each on a piece of paper, using a stencil puppet for the titular astronaut, and then shooting them to animate! You end up with a really cool old-timey style. THEN, he pasted up all the frames he'd created all in a line along a city block: it's more than 200m of stencils, as you can see in the pictures, and
in this video of them being put up. It's pretty neat! I haven't seen animation done like this before. GUESS WHAT JUST CAME OUT: IT'S MY NEW BOOK!! If you've ever wondered what you'd do if you were stranded in the past, wonder no longer! With HOW TO INVENT EVERYTHING, you'll reinvent civilization from scratch, no matter what time period you're in. You'll become the single most influential, decisive, and important person ever born. You'll make history... Here's the trailer! One year ago today: mutton chops and handlebar mustachios all at the same time, baby – Ryan
