In Good Company

A couple of seasons ago on Aqua Teen I animated a scene of an unsuspecting Meatwad rotating in a microwave. (Hey, it completed the set... I had already animated the 360 turnarounds on Frylock and Master Shake the year before) Since he doesn't have any distinguishing features to speak of on his seldom-seen non-talking side ('cept seeds) I sculpted up a little Meatwad to provide myself some reference on the scene using some meat-colored Super-Sculpey. But I didn't rotoscope it --and if you watch the episode it's pretty obvious-- I just "eyeballed it" and drew the different positions directly from turning the model in measured-off increments. It turned out a lot cartoonier than it would have if it'd been a straight roto...but it still had some real solidity to it. Do I have a clip?...eh, ...nope, but I DO have a pic of the Sculpey Microwave Meatwad hanging out with Gleep and Gloop from the Herculoids set on my bar. Just small talk. Nothing serious, I guarantee.

Just...hangin'.

So, I haven't watched AS in a few years (I miss Space Ghost and am very, very sad there aren't anymore dvds), but I damn near pissed my pants when I saw the lite brites.

First I heard of it was a text from my boyfriend that read "Aqua Teen Hunger Force caused a police response in Boston" and I was just thinkin' "Wait... what?"

You know what's funny? I heard about the whole ATHF snafu on NPR as a news item on "All Things Considered." That was a first.

And as Herr Croker said, we are all anxiously awaiting the release of more SGC2C DVDs.

Your Meatwad sculpture is cute! I'm working with Premo Sculpy at the moment making dragons. I'm really looking forward to the A.T.H.F. movie! I just hope it comes to England. I found the whole Boston thing amusing, I was surprised about it when I first saw it on the [adult swim] boards and then saw it on the news later. I painted myself an Ignignokt sweatshirt in honour of it lol!

I couldn't find where to comment on your latest post so I thought I would here. I'm a big Zorak fan and draw him a lot, I thought you may like to see a couple of pictures I drew of him. I would be honoured if you could take the time to look and tell me what you think. I know you are busy though so I understand if you don't have time.
Anyway, the first one is my take on Zorak http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/pryno/index.html/silvolfstudios/ZorakMyStyle.jpg
And the second is Zorak in his prison pod on Cartoon Planet looking annoyed at Space Ghost http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/50218379/

Best wishes,
