When insomnia strikes....
...I draw characters from Firefly on my iPod.

What?! Don't look at me like that.

Well, it's happened. A flipbook animation app has been created for the iPhone and iPod touch.
It's like someone called me up and said "Lauren, do you remember all of those flipbooks about monsters, racing kangaroos, and exploding space aliens you used to make in middle school? You know, the ones that let you experience a small, yet fleeting smidgen of popularity from throngs of delighted onlookers? Well, today is your lucky day!" I downloaded the free trial version (Flipbook Lite) and although I'm not entirely in love with the interface just yet, I'd be lying out my bum if I didn't get the giggles from the small act of creating the illusion of movement. Sadly, the trial version is limited to a pathetic 10 frames, and one upload onto the web.

So, until I cough up the $9.99 for the full version, here is my one.

I just found this. From the looks of it, Kineo may win the usability category. I'll have to investigate further...

Development sketch for some album art...
Next go round will be "less monstery and more roboty."
It would make a fun t-shirt or somethin' though.

all thumbs

While watching No Country for Old Men.
Using the touch screen effectively is made all the more challenging by my big fat fingers.

Add snack food debris to the mix and I'm pretty much useless.
