For our final project in my computer art class, my instructor gave us a Flash animation to do. The goal was the incorporate a tarot card into the animation. I had this idea of a cute, little hermit crab bouncing around in my head for a while, so I chose to base my flash off the "Hermit" card. If you're familiar with tarot cards at all (I'm not, just did some basic research for this project), you'll be able to notice some of the similarities between this and the card.
This is also my first animation done by tablet. My school has a Mac lab full of 18- or so-inch Wacom tablets which have made this project both fun and ten times more efficient in terms of productivity. I'm gonna miss these things. :(
As always, enjoy. Although I spent a lot of time of it, his toon's a little short, due to deadlines and such.

EDIT: I'm aware the replay button doesn't work. It's because of an AS3 conflict that I'm both too inexperienced and downright lazy to deal with. Plus, it'll prolly be faster for you to right-click and hit play than me to open CS5.5 (after a series of approximately six or seven crashes) and fix the issue.
