Time to vote for the Best of November! If you were a top 2000 active user last month, you will see a link to vote on your account page.

Today's daily Wacom winner is Drew Matson, aka Five-Iron!

Drew's first Flash submission came to NG in early 2005, with a gothic piece about a crow that brings him back from the grave.

He enjoyed some mild popularity with a follow-up about Leeroy Jenkins:

But first scored front page with an experimental work set to music by Kingbastard.

In 2007, Five-Iron celebrated five years of MINDistortion with this video:

He also participated in the 2007 Halloween competition and stood up for the Writer's Guild during the strike in Hollywood.

Five-Iron's latest submission has shown the most promise yet! "Me Bill" is another collaboration with Kingbastard and you can see how both artists have progressed in recent years.

Drew has a new series in the works, Apocalypse Please, and feels a tablet will help it to be all it can be. Keep an eye out for Apocalypse Please in 2009!

On Thursday I tossed out an idea for Thanksgiving break, inspired by LeafWorthy's Panda Fight. While LF's theme was "Pandas and Civil War", this theme was "Turkeys and the Rapture." Here are the resulting movies:

HAHA yeah man. Upstairs was an awesome piece of work.
Five-Iron hit the ball out of the park with his interpretation of Kingbastard's music.

It's really cool to see how his animations have grown more crisp and stylistic over the years. I remember his crow flash, but strangely enough I haven't seen any of his work since then.

Congrats, Five-Iron

I barely remember watching Five-Iron's first submission back in the days, but I really have to go watch it again, as I have forgotten the stuff about it by now.

Never became familiar with Five-Iron's other work after that one, appearantly.
Gotta check them out!

Also, gongratulations Five-Iron.

There was a deadline, you know. It's hard to make a good flash in such short time.
