Dr. Zork here, detailing in some insignificance the continuing animation exploits of the fictional animator Akre. On this Sunday afternoon he has just turned to page 23 of his 67 page script. On Friday night he was on page 21. Thru much work and stress with pen and computer he has worked hard and moved like a glacier in animation progress over this weekend of two days.

Lately he has discovered the joy of combining the animations he makes with pen and lightbox and Photoshop with the animations he makes with the After Effects program. He is able to combine smooth animation with jerky animation and he likes the visual symphony of it. Speaking of symphonies, yesterday he created what he calls the "Scratching Symphony" of his character Botulism. Botulism is a character that finds comfort in the practice of the itch.

The fictional Mr. Akre has just sent several After Effects compositions to render. It will be some hours before this render is finished. In some of that time he will make new drawings. In other of that time he will read a book that he began reading on Friday about the making of the Bullwinkle and Rocky cartoon series by Jay Ward and Bill Scott. He finds this all very interesting, and he is as excited as a schoolboy about it all.

Of course such juvenile enthusiasm simply sickens me, the wonderously jazztacular Dr. Zork, so I will try to find the deep meanings in Django Reinhardts's guitar string reverberations. I will also leave you with the Pome of the Day Project day pome entry for today.

if only
there was
to say

just opening
your mouth
would be
a moment

just thinking
a picture
of your body
would be profound

Written in sincerity and with fingers,
Dr. Hubert Zork
