I was just perusing the bloggosphere tonight and happened across animateclay.com, where I see Marc has posted a little thing about Darkmatters. Thanks Marc! He has a really huge readership, so lots and lots of people have seen my shrunken applehead now! But he also posted a link to YouTube for a bunch of the coolest clay animation ever created IMHO... the Neverhood cut scenes created by Doug TenNaple! Click the pic above to see these incredible bursts of concentrated coolness! He was a 2d cartoonist, as you can tell from one of the clips, and that's obviosly where he gets the pure cartoonish pop he uses in the claymation. Man, I can't get enough of this stuff!

Oh, and I re-dipped all the arms again tonight to try to smooth out those crazy knuckles... I'm getting really anxious to be done with these puppets and get on to making the set and props. Hopefully I can finish all the puppets by Halloween.
