Well, a more appropriate title to this video should be “how the comic strip Sheldon was created. According to the Sheldon Comic website, artist Dave Kellett has switched over to a more digital process. However; there’s still a ton of great advice, and technique, demonstrated on this video for would be cartoonist. Kellett made this video about six years ago, which I totally would have posted about – if Atomic Moo had existed back then. So, anyways, check out the video below along witha single example of the Sheldon comic strip, but click the Sheldon link to learn more about Kellett’s new process!

Via Geeks are Sexy: First; let me start this post by saying that I want this guys job! Space travel! napping! snacks! No real physical exertion… this is my line of work, man! Anyways, check this incredibly funny video, by Alfred Image Works and animator Kyungmin Woo, about the most devastating package delivery in the history of corporate mail services! I’ve watched this about six times now and it doesn’t stop being funny! Now, I’m off to submit my resume to the JohnnyExpress corporate headquarters. I hope they notice that “napping” was one of my minors in college. I excel at it!

Hey El Moochadores! Earlier this morning I came across this fantastic short film by Vimeo user, Henry. Check out the synopsis:
On the eve of a technological breakthrough, an insignificant janitor and a prominent engineer are faced with a decision that will alter the course of humanity: the release of the first aware computer system into the world.
This film has a nice steady build to a fantastic ending! I think (not sure, but I’m going off the credits) the two main performers were Chip Bent and Bret Porter. I think. Anyways; Awareness is an excellent short film you’re not going to want to miss!

If you go to vimeo.com you’ll be able to see an amazing animation by Charlex. This is kind of like Wall-E meets Ratatouille but with really sad music. One Rat Short is the story of a lost rat who’s hunger for snacks lands him in the middle of a high-tech research facility. This is the first time I’ve encountered this film makers work, and he has several more examples of professional projects on Vimeo, but this really hit’s the old emotional soft spot. Check it out and if you know of any other animations or cool videos by this artist please let us know.
