with this update, i find myself doing something i never had to do in the old days.... redraw stuff.
if you look at the thursday feb. 8th update you'll see this update is a bit different then this on here... i just wanna make sure these first few moments with a bean are just right. i think as things start to get crazier as i get going, i'll be able to get away with stuff that's not right on the mark.

hello everyone....as you can see, there's not much to see. in fact i've spent more time tinkering with the software, then actual drawing. i confess it's giving me a headache.
for now this will be the last gif i can put up, the image is prolly coming in super choppy looking if your connection is dial-p or dsl....so, til' figure out the editing program and can clips of the progress up, i may just post single frames... learning the software has been a bit of a black cloud over this deal, i'll be glad when i have a handle on it!

well, there you have it folks... i'm gonna start on an animated short featuring the bean men... i have had a desire to make one for a long while now, since before last summer. originally the plan was to announce this on April 1st. 2007, as sort of a (not a joke) aprils fools joke, but i've gotten to the point now where i just wanna start working on it, and the joke wouldn't be funny to me anymore. there is a sorta vague plan for it... very action-ish with sound effects set to music , but nothings set in stone... i'm just gonna start making it and see where it goes.
even tho i wont be updating the site with comics for the next year or more, there should still be plenty to look at... i'm going to update the site with pencil tests and production art as i go.
i wanted to take a moment to say thanks to mister sam, for pointing out one of the imposter bean men comics to me! if any of you come across any more imposter beans, send us a link!
the guys at bomb shelter comics have featured a review of the bean men in their podcast.
oh and speaking of merchandise, the chalk bean men heads are now sold out. i sold the last one this last weekend. and out of the 85 or so resin heads i made, i'm down to my last 10 heads. so, if you wanted one, the time is now to get one. cus' once there gone, that's it. i'm not making any more of the old ones.

hey folks! it's been awhile hasn't it?....well, i'm still alive, but my throat is still an unresolved issue, it's possible i may have to go in and have my tonsils removed if things flare up again...but enough about that.
ever wondered why the bean men are called 'the bean men'?.....well, i answer that question and a few more in this DIGITAL STRIPS interview the MIDNIGHT CARTOONIST did.
