I spent three and a half weeks creating this animation! 100+ Hand painted drawings, 70+ sketches, and all drawn with a calligraphy pen.

This is traditional animation at its finest! (This was how Disney movies, the Simpsons, looney toons, and all your favorite cartoons were made.)

The process involves tracing a sketch onto a clear sheet of celluloid with a special ink. When the ink dries, you flip over the drawing and paint on the opposite side. When finished, you flip over the drawing to reveal and clean image. This is how each frame (drawing) is made. (24 frames = 1 second of animation)

6 seconds of animation = 144 frames

Making of the “Inevitable” Music Video

I am working on a few projects at the moment, and this is the biggest one. A four minute claymation for the band Captain Squeegee’s new song titled, “Inevitable.” The song is about apocalyptic events and how man kind’s destruction is… inevitable. More updates soon!
