This is my first animated project I've written and directed. I wrote the script years ago and have been chipping away a small bit at a time over the years. I'm mainly an After-Effects artist, so Rodrigo Huerta (Bambee) and John Hill both rocked the house and animated the piece in Flash, which I later edited.

Here's the back story:

Years ago, I created a character named "Cancer Man" in order to offend my college roommate. It was flagrantly shocking and crude, but silly at the same time. His theme song was originally the "Spiderman" theme replaced with "Cancer Man." "Cancer man. cancer man. has cancer like no other man." I later refined this character and wrote a script to tell the story of Tobacco Man, a cigarette-shaped superhero standing up for the wrong things. This short is the beginning of that story.

Though not a flash artist myself, I love the 2d flash look. I found myself working with friends and colleagues who were interested in the story and could help me see this through. My buddies Adrian Sairin and David Tuber (Moral Orel) helped me with creating the look of the characters and David did the storyboards. Matt Iseman (Clean House), David, and I recorded the voices one night at a recording studio. I also worked with musician John Ikuma and we had two Hustle & Flow sessions creating music based around our imaginations and temporary audio. That was my first ever session in composing music, which was an exciting learning experience and I think turned out well.

Now, i want to share Tobacco Man with the Newgrounds community out of my love for the site and respect for the artists who submit here. I hope you guys enjoy the absurd story of Tobacco Man.

Thanks,
Andrew

Cancer isn't funny but this is!

Awesomely funny. I think you should try to keep this series going. This was a great idea. Although I detest cigarettes for a lot of reasons, it's the ideas here, story and comedy of this that makes it work well. I'm glad I don't smoke cigarettes (or anything else) because they are too addicting and dangerous obviously. I'd like to see more episodes in the future. Good work!

Excellent work.

This was an awesome flash with a brash new character in Tobacco Man,the idea for it was funny as was the execution throughout the flash with Tobacco Man and the other characters,the voice acting was fantastic and the humor to it reminded me a lot of Ren & Stimpy with the crude humor yet not vulger i especially loved the part with the little girl,overall i really enjoyed this flash and i hope you make more in the future. =)
