January 19th, 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. NEW SHIRTS: As you may have noticed, I've spent the past all this year coming up with a new shirt design every month. Then I sold them for two weeks only! But now they're BACK... for two weeks only. Check them out! There are some PRETTY FRIGGIN' AWESOME shirts here. There's also a new one about dating, kinda? One year ago today: YOU ARE DEVELOPING AS YOU SHOULD – Ryan
