-Thanks for the reviews
- I ended up getting a B for this. To be honest my preliminary sketchbook was awful though.
school art project 2007-2008, and my last, hope you enjoy it.

topic was 'modern design & animation', decided to do a mock interview style short cartoon about the nature of art (although the interviews are spontaneous and unrehearsed). I thought the best way to get funny/watchable answers at short notice would be to probe into the minds of 11 year old kids.

my target was to create expressive character designs and accompany them with equally emotive body language and movement. my main focus in this was to make something that - aesthetically - looked completely different than anything i had done before, hence my first time using live-action as a primary medium. i rented a HD video camera for that but unfortunately only a standard tape so it came out averagey and i wasted money... oh well.

please enjoy!

i really like it.

Stupid zero voters, they don't even say why they didn't like it.

I'm just curious but what grade were these kids in?
Great idea for a flash too.

Spot on.

The expressions you animated were priceless. If that's what you were going for, well done.
The interviews were precious. It was fun to see what precocious schoolchildren think of art. With all the hemming and hawing around the art community, one is inclined to wonder what kind of impressions are passed on to the kids.

I only wish you had asked them to describe "good art" as well as just "art." Cuz that little girl was right, you can scribble on anything you want and call it art. But that doesn't mean it's any good.

This was great, it was very cute. I also gotta say, the drawing in the welcome page on your website is fucking awesome.
