I haven’t posted in way too long, and I’ve decided to take a break from the strip to work on a children’s book for a while… the strip will be back sooner or later continuing from where it left off, but I figured I’d give anyone who still is reading this an update. To tide you over in the meantime, here are some cartoons I’ve done recently at my day job as a flash developer/animator…
I’ve been having some fun recently building a holiday site called NOSLO.com for the company I work for (OLSON)… NOSLO is the holiday of the future where you send “Sacks of Joy” to your friends and loved ones to spread the joy. Here are the “Sacks of Joy” I’ve animated so far.. send ‘em to your friends and spread the joy, if you’re inclined:
Sack of Joy #1: Joyous NOSLO Song
Come spread the spirit and sacks of Joyous NOSLO, the holiday of the future, with this rousing NOSLO carol.
Sack of Joy #2: The Soul Seal
No one can resist the charms of The Soul Seal. Joyous NOSLO!
Sack of Joy #3: Snowcat
The flying feline of the frozen frontier. Joyous NOSLO!
Sack of Joy #4: Come Take a Trip in My Airship
An animated plea for aerial romance from a more innocent era. Joyous NOSLO!
Sack of Joy #5: The Mustache Game
Are you man enough (or facial-hair-challenged woman enough) to triumph over the challenges of the mustache game? Only one way to find out. Joyous NOSLO!
Sack of Joy #6: Fuzzy Love
An animated fuzzball expresses affection in a manner congruous to his deeply damaged fur-lined psyche. Joyous NOSLO!
Sack of Joy #7: In Space No One Can Hear You
An animated astronaut explores the aural possibilities of deep space exploration. Joyous NOSLO!
Sack of Joy #8: The Magical Unicorn
Magic! Sparkles! Fancy! The delirious joy that can only be expressed through a unicorn and a rainbow, or through inhaling fumes of magic glitter glue in a confined space. Joyous NOSLO!
Sack of Joy #9: The Fractal Weasel Tree
Traditions! No Joyous NOSLO holiday would be complete without summoning and chopping down a Fractal Weasel Tree. Joyous joy! Joyous NOSLO!
Sack of Joy #10: The Marshmallow-Loving Chihuahua Vs. The Teacup
Whether you lean towards oolong, jasmine or mint you’ll feel compelled beyond your own will to help this marshmallow-loving chihuahua defeat the sinister teacup. Joyous NOSLO!
Sack of Joy #11: The Little Blue Bird of Joy
Sometimes it takes a little blue bird to remind you that, in spite of life’s hardships, joy can be found regardless of circumstance. Joyous NOSLO!
