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

"and call me when you're 18!"

I liked it a lot. You put a lot of work into coordinating the final result. Wish the audio was a bit clearer though. Good work.

Great!

I especially loved the quality of the animation. Of course, the humor was great as well. You should make a "Marijuana Man" next or something.
